Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Scarborough (1930)

At their 23rd Annual Congress due to be held at Scarborough in Yorkshire from June 23 to July 5, 1930 the British Chess Federation decided to substitute for their British Championship event an international tournament containing six strong foreign masters and six of the leading home players. The players invited from abroad were Rubinstein and Savielly Tartakower (Poland), Maroczy (Hungary), Colle (Belgium), Grünfeld (Austria) and Ahues (Germany). Unfortunately, Tartakower fell ill and was unable to come; his place was filled by Vera Menchik, the only woman to attain real master class at that time. The home players were Michell, Sergeant, Sultan Khan, Sir George Thomas, Winter and Yates.
