Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Zurich (1934)

The 37th Swiss Championship, held in Zurich, Switzerland from July 14th to the 28th, 1934 (1) was an international tournament event. Many elite European masters, including then World Champion Alexander Alekhine, joined Switzerland's best for a round robin tournament. The participants were: from France, Alekhine and Ossip Bernstein; from Germany, former world champion Emanuel Lasker and Efim Bogoljubov; from Denmark, Aron Nimzowitsch; from the Netherlands, Max Euwe; from Czechoslovakia, Salomon Flohr; from Sweden, Gideon Stċhlberg; from Italy, Stefano Rosselli del Turco; and from Switzerland, Henri Grob, Fritz Gygli, Walter Henneberger, Hans Johner, Hermann Joss, Hans Mueller, and Oskar Naegeli. Alekhine reigned supreme over the field with an astounding 13/15! The world champion's only loss in the tournament was a prophetic one to Euwe, who would topple the world champion for the crown a year later.

Dec-23-12  Conrad93: 11 losses and 4 draws? That's just sad.

  perfidious: Nearing the end of a three-year period in which he did not play, after his match with Euwe at the end of 1931, which came to an end with his participation at the Hastings event of 1934-35.

No idea whether he received an invitation to this tournament, although I am sure there are those who would be able to answer that question. In view of the poor relations between Alekhine and Capa following Buenos Aires, it would not be at all surprising to learn that Capablanca was not invited.

  thegoodanarchist: Flohr finished ahead of Bogo, Lasker and Nimzo!

Flohr is underrated, maybe

  zanzibar: Looking at <AZquote> I only found this Lasker quote mentioning genius:

<I have known many chess players, but among them there has been only one genius - Capablanca!

Emanuel Lasker>

Of course <AZquote> doesn't mention sources.
