Capablanca, Alechin, Rubinstein, Tartakover, Maroczy, Atkins and Yates are playing. C. G. Watson (Australia) and J. S. Morrison (Canada) represent the Dominions.
Play was opened to-day, when Capablanca (the world's champion) defeated M. Euwe (Holland) in 38 moves. C. Watson (champion of Australia) was pitted against F. D. Yates (the British champion), and replied to the Ruy Lopez with the Steinitz defence. At the call of time the game was unfinished.
[The players in this tourney are F. D. Yates, H. Atkins, and V. Wahltuch (Britain), K. Khadilkar (India), C. G. Watson (Australia), J. S. Morrison (Canada), J. R. Capablanca (Cuba), A. Alechin, A.

|Dec-16-13|| ||keypusher: I have the tournament book (which is none too good). Capablanca just seems to be in a different class than everyone else.|
|Sep-13-14|| ||Benzol: Link to Capablanca's famous London Rules regarding the World championship.|
|Dec-30-14|| ||offramp: Twenty seven miserable quid and ten measly bob for 6th place. I turn my back on them in disgust.|
|Dec-30-14|| ||WannaBe: <offramp> Yeah, but if you account for inflation, that's like 200 Million in today's money! =))|
|Dec-31-14|| ||offramp: Réti & Tartakower said they threw away the prize money and kept the wheelbarrow it was delivered in.|
|Dec-31-14|| ||perfidious: A year or two later, that would have happened in Germany.|
