NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by New York (1924)

In December 1923 following an aborted attempt to arrange a World Championship match between Capablanca and Alyekhin, Herman Helms, publisher of the American Chess Bulletin, Harry Latz the General Manager of the Hotel Alamac in New York and Norbert Lederer the Secetary of the Manhattan Chess Club set about organizing a tournament to rival Cambridge Springs 1904. The tournament took place in the Hotel Alamac from the 16th of March to the 18th of April 1924. The participants were Dr Emanuel Lasker, Capablanca, Alyekhin, Marshall, Janowski, Maroczy, Bogolyubov, Reti, Tartakover, Edward Lasker and Yates. The time limit was 30 moves in 2 hours and 15 moves per hour thereafter. Capablanca was expected to be the winner but the 55-year-old Dr Lasker proved that he was by no means a spent force and ran away with the tournament. In a number of ways the tournament paralleled the St. Petersburg 1914 Tournament with the top three place getters ten years older. It was also notable for Reti's use of his own Opening, Capablanca's first tournament loss in eight years and a number of masterpieces that were created.
