  Karpova: A bit more on the history of origins of this tournament:

On February 23, 1914, a new club called <Kasino-Klub> was opened in Baden near Vienna. In order to inaugurate it, an international chess tournament was to be arranged. On March 10, Georg Marco was assigned the arrangement and management of the tournament. The program was published already on March 12, which asked the chessmasters to participate in the tournament starting on April 5. By April 20, already 14 registrations had been received, despite a fee of 50 crowns. 10 further registrations had been received by April 29.

The program:

The tournament begins on April 5, 1914, in the <Kasino-Klub>, Kaiser Franz-Ring Nr. 7.

Organizer and director of the tournament is Georg Marco, editor of the 'Wiener Schachzeitung'.

All and only gambit openings are allowed, except for the Queen's Gambit. The gambit needn't be accepted though.

1. Number of participants limited to 10 and only masters of international acclaim are being considered.

2. Double-round robin

3. Registration deadline is March 28. Recipient is Marco (Wien IX/3, Schwarzspanierstraße 15).

Another failed alcoholic who mistakes Wien (Vienna) for Wein (wine).

Is 'undefeatedness' a word.

When he finally lost one was that the end of his undefeatedness's?

  TheFocus: So <Baths Full of Viennese> is any better?

  Sally Simpson: Thanks Focus.

May you to go on a long run of undefeatedness.

My run usually last for one game then I go on a longer run of unwinningness.

Correct would be undefeatitude.

I like this.

But still, wouldn't it be simpler to say, "Schlechter continued his extraordinary undefeated run"?
