11th DSB Kongress
Cologne, Germany, 1898.08.01 - 1898.08.19

Participants in order of finish were: Amos Burn, Rudolf Rezso Charousek, Mikhail Chigorin, Wilhelm Cohn, Wilhelm Steinitz, Carl Schlechter, Jackson Whipps Showalter, Johann Nepomuk Berger, David Janowski, Ignatz Von Popiel, Emmanuel Schiffers, Hermann Von Gottschall, Adolf Albin, Arved Heinrichsen, Alexander Fritz, and Emil Schallopp.
