Cambridge Springs 1904
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In the Spring of 1904, American and European chess masters gathered at Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania to compete in a large round robin tournament. Among the competitors were seven of the top ten players of the world, as well as the World Champion and the various national champions of Russia, France, Austria, and the United States. The participants were Emanuel Lasker, Mikhail Chigorin, David Janowski, Harry Nelson Pillsbury, Carl Schlechter, Frank James Marshall, Georg Marco, Jacques Mieses, Richard Teichmann, Jackson Showalter, William Napier, Albert Hodges, Eugene Delmar, Albert Fox, John Finan Barry, and Thomas Francis Lawrence. 27 year old Frank Marshall stunned the chess world with his phenomenal victory of 13/15 over the chess elite, including wins against Janowski, Schlechter, and Pillsbury (two of which were brilliancy prizes). Marshall's win marked the beginning of a career that would include going on to be US Champion for 27 years and a challenger for the world championship against Lasker in 1907.
