|Trenton Falls (1906)|
Participants in order of finish were: Emanuel Lasker, Charles Curt, Albert Whiting Fox, and Rudolf Raubitschek.
It was no more than was to have been expected that Dr. Emanuel Lasker, whose presence at Trenton Falls during the week of July 23-28, made this year’s mid-summer meeting of the New York State Association one of more than ordinary importance, should be the one to win the Rice Trophy in the leading event. As a result of his participation, the newly organized Rice Chess Club, of New York City, is in possession of the emblem created by its honorary president and patron. It was an unexpected treat to find the world’s champion resuming active practice and it goes without saying that his latest half dozen productions will be perused with avidity by all students of the game. Charles Curt, representing the Brooklyn Chess Club, played consistently good chess throughout the tournament, losing two well fought games to the champion, but winning both his games against the Manhattan Chess Club’s champion. It was reasonable to suppose, considering the form shown, that he would have been second to no other Metropolitan player, had Lasker been absent. Both A. W. Fox, Manhattan C. C., and R. Raubitschek, N. Y. State Association, had the satisfaction of drawing a game with the champion.

Among the other events on the programme were two Rice Gambit consultation games and a solving contest. A cablegram from Professor Rice in Germany suggesting the new continuation of 11.Qe2 against the Jasnogrodsky defense gave the players a clue. Dr. Lasker played on the White side both times and the result of the trial was a win for White and a draw. Dr. Lasker also achieved a draw with White in his second Trophy game against Raubitschek – American Chess Bulletin, August, 1906.
