Copenhagen 1923
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In the wake of the Great War, Aron Nimzowitsch returned to international chess play after a long absence. In his new home city of Copenhagen, Denmark Nimzowitsch met three other masters and two Danish players for a double round robin tournament held from March 3rd to the 14th in 1923. During this fertile period of the hypermodern school, Nimzowitsch's style shone brilliantly as he took first place a full two points ahead of the rest of the field, with a brilliancy against Friedrich Sämisch which has since been referred to as "The Immortal Zugzwang Game."

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Nimzowitsch 8/10 ** 1½ 11 ½½ 11 ½1

=2nd Tartakower 6/10 0½ ** 0½ ½1 ½1 11
