Nuremberg 1896
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This tournament has now been superceded by Nuremberg (1896)

The tournament held in Nuremberg ( also known as Nürnberg or Nuernberg ) was organized by the Nuremberg Chess Club and scheduled to coincide with a large industrial exhibition of the city. It was one of the last great tournaments of the 19th Century. Held in the premises of the Museum Society in Nuremberg it ran from the 19th of July to the 9th of August. The time limit was 30 moves in two hours. The tournament featured not only established players such as Schallopp, Winawer and Blackburne but also young up-coming talents like Schlechter, Maroczy, Janowski and Charousek. It also brought together the current World Champion Lasker, his immediate predecessor Steinitz and their main rivals Chigorin, Pillsbury and Tarrasch. A number of masterpieces and well fought games resulted.
