London 1922
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by London (1922)

During the 19th Century London, England had been the setting for some great tournaments. The first international tourney in 1851, the first double round robin tourney in 1862, the contest of 1883 and Lasker's triumph of 1899. In December 1921 the British Chess Federation decided to hold an international tournament of sixteen players as the main event of its 1922 congress. Invitations were sent to Capablanca, Alyekhin, Rubinstein, Bogolyubov, Reti, Tartakover, Vidmar, Euwe, Kostich and Marshall but the last two named players had problems with their travelling expenses and were unable to accept. In addition the current British Champion and the Champions of Australia and Canada were also invited. Held in the Central Hall Westminster, London the tournament ran from the 31st of July to the 19th of August, 1922. Many games played in this tourney would later grace the best games collections of a number of players.
