Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
2nd City Chess Club Tournament (1894)

Held in the city of New York between October 20th through November 15th, this was the second tournament held under the auspices of the City Chess Club. Pillsbury had won the previous 1st City Chess Club Tournament (1893) but only managed an even score here. Especially noteworthy was that this was the first tournament since 1883 that had former World Champion Wilhelm Steinitz as a participant.
