Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Barmen Meisterturnier B (1905)
Part of the undercard for Barmen Meisterturnier A (1905), this tournament was held from August 14-September 1, 1905, and featured the following players:

John Washington Baird; Horatio Caro; Wilhelm Cohn; Hans Fahrni; Leo Fleischmann Forgacs; Ignacy Kopa; Francis Joseph Lee; Benjamin Leussen; Augustin Neumann; Aron Nimzowitsch; Julius Perlis; A H Pettersson; Alfred Ehrhardt Post; David Przepiorka; Arturo Reggio; Wilhelm Schwan; Rudolf Spielmann; Rudolf Swiderski.

For the most part, this was a three-way race between Cohn, Swiderski and Forgacs, with occasional challenges from others. The first two were tied for the lead after round 9, but Cohn lost to Swiderski in round 10 and was always a bit behind after that.

Forgacs, recovering from a slow start, caught Swiderski in round 11 and kept up until draws in round 14 and 15 left him a full point behind with two rounds to go, while Cohn and the hard-charging Perlis were another half-point back.

Round 16 proved critical. Cohn fell to Spielmann, who found his form for this game after losing five in a row. Perlis, going up against tail-ender Pettersson (who had scored one draw in 15 games), slowly frittered away an endgame.

That ended their challenges, which was unfortunate because the unstable Swiderski lost his last two games, collapsing much as he had at the Coburg (Meisterturnier) (1904). Forgacs kept his nerves, won his last two games, and took the tournament by a full point.

  Benzol: Interesting to see the names of Spielmann and Nimzowitsch appearing in the crosstable. Their results here belie their later sucesses.

  GrahamClayton: Ignacy Kopa's only international tournament. He spent the rest of his career playing entirely in Poland.
