Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
Nuremberg (1896)
This tournament held in Nuremberg (also known as Nürnberg or Nuernberg) was organized by the Nuremberg Chess Club and scheduled to coincide with a large industrial exhibition of the city. It was one of the last great tournaments of the 19th Century. Held in the premises of the Museum Society in Nuremberg it ran from the 19th of July to the 9th of August. The time limit was 30 moves in two hours. The tournament featured not only established players such as Schallopp, Winawer and Blackburne but also young up-coming talents like Schlechter, Maroczy, Janowski and Charousek. It also brought together the current World Champion Lasker, his immediate predecessor Steinitz and their main rivals Chigorin, Pillsbury and Tarrasch. A number of masterpieces and well fought games resulted.

  Karpova: Georg Marco on how Charousek became a participant:

About 48 hours before the start of tournament, Marco arrived in Nuremberg. Tarrasch together with the committee welcomed him amicably, as they did with every master.

But Tarrasch was understandably agitated, since many of the participants were not yet there. Furthermore, Burn had withdrawn by telegraph shortly before. So Tarrasch asked him, where he could get a replacement fast.

Marco told him to take Charousek, if he had registered in time. Are you serious, Tarrasch asked. Marco told him that he had seen magnificent games of Charousek against Dr. Meitner - who is delighted by the ingenious play of his opponent. That was good enough for Tarrasch - a few minutes later a telegram was sent to the Budapest Chess Club, and 24 hours later Charousek was there.
