  offramp: Réti was a 19-year-old but he was annihilated like a non-talented 12-year-old.

Sixteen crushing rapid counterplayless losses and three dishonorable draws....

It makes you want to puke.

If only the gormless twit had given up chess on the spot.

  Benzol: Sixteen losses would have been hard to bear. It's great that he didn't loose heart and just give up playing. Chess history would have been very different if he had.
Jul-20-14  Karpova: Brilliancy Prizes:

Jury: Hugo Fähndrich and Victor Tietz

1st Brilliancy Prize (300 Kronen): Rubinstein vs Duras, 1908

2nd Brilliancy Prize (200 Kronen): Salwe vs Marshall, 1908

Jul-20-14  waustad: Does anybody know if they used some sort of tiebreaks or if they considered it a 3-way tie for first?
Jul-21-14  Karpova: <waustad>

In the final report, no tie-break system is mentioned. The prize money for the first three places was summated, then divided by three and shared among the winners.

The prize money was:

1st-3rd: Duras, Maroczy and Schlechter received (4,000 + 3,500 + 3,000)/3 Kronen, i. e 3,500 Kronen each (there is a mistake as it says 400 Kronen, but this can't be correct).

4th: Rubinstein received 2,000 Kronen

5th: Teichmann received 1,200 Kronen

6th: Spielmann received 800 Kronen

7th and 8th: Perlis and Tartakower shared (600 + 400)/2 Kronen

9th and 10th: Leonhardt, Marshall and Mieses shared 600 Kronen.

The rest got a consolation prize of 100 Kronen each.

  TheFocus: Two brilliancy prizes were donated by Baron Albert de Rothschild. The first prize of 300 crowns was awarded to Rubinstein for his victory over Duras; and the second prize of 200 crowns was awarded to Marshall for his victoty over Mieses.
