Liege 1930
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

Twelve chess players were invited to Liege, Belgium in August of 1930 to compete in a round robin tournament. The participants were Aron Nimzowitsch, Frank James Marshall, Akiba Rubinstein, Savielly Tartakower, Mir Sultan Khan, Edgar Colle, George Allen Thomas, Karl Ahues, David Przepiorka, Henri Weenink, Isaias Pleci, and Victor Ivanovich Soultanbeieff. It was to be one of Tartakower's best tournaments. He finished undefeated with 8.5/11, two points ahead of second place Sultan Khan.

The final standings and crosstable:
