Vienna 1898
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In the summer of 1898, Adolf Baron von Rothschild organized a double round robin tournament to be held in Vienna, Austria to celebrate the jubilee of Kaiser Franz Josef. He sent invitations to the best chess masters in the world, eventually garnering twenty participants. Among the notable absentees, World Champion Emmanuel Lasker declined his invitation on the grounds that too many players (over sixteen) had been invited to compete. Charousek was also invited but declined due to poor health. The twenty players, including old masters like Chigorin and Steinitz, as well as new masters like Tarrasch and Pillsbury, assembled at Baron von Rothschild's Heugasse palace on May 31st. The tournament was conducted within the club hall of Wiener Schachklub at Schottengasse 7. Games started promptly each morning at 10am, with a time control of thiry moves every two hours. The adjournment bell was rung at 2pm, with play resuming at 5pm to be continued until 9pm at which point a minimum of fifteen moves per hour must be made. It was forbidden to analyze adjourned games. Among the highlights of the tournament, the elderly Adolf Schwarz was forced to resign during his eighth round game and then leave Vienna due to health reasons. His remaining games in the first half were forfeited and he was removed from the schedule of the second half. In addition to these forfeited games, two more games were decided by forfeit, all of these games have been omitted from this collection. On the 26th of July a large banquet was held in the tournament hall for all the players to celebrate the end of the tournament. Prizes were awarded and several players made haste after the feast to catch the train to Koln where another tournament was being held at the start of August. Tarrasch and Pillsbury had finished the tournament tied for first, so a playoff mini-match of four games was devised to be played on consecutive days following the prize banquet. The remaining players stayed to observe the play off match and cheered Tarrasch as the eventual winner. Tarrasch won 6000 Kronen for first; the Krone being equal in value to the Franc or Mark at the time. Pillsbury won 4000 Kronen as well as a 400 Kronen bonus for a brilliancy prize. The tournament stands as the largest international tournament ever played as well as Tarrasch's greatest tournament victory in his whole chess career.
