Bath Beach 1909
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

This six-player round robin decided the 22nd New York State Chess Association championship played July 26-30, 1909. It had a couple of notable features: the participation of famous masters Frank James Marshall and Charles Jaffe --and the fact that neither of them won it!

Jaffe got off to a rocky start, losing in rounds one and three to Wilbur Lyttleton Moorman and Herbert Rosenfeld. Marshall allowed a draw to Otto Roething in round two, dropping a half-point behind Rosenfeld who began with three straight wins.

Marshall temporarily restored normalcy by beating Rosenfeld in round four and winning the brilliancy prize in the process. However, in an ironic prequel to Havana 1913, Jaffe defeated Marshall in the last round as Rosenfeld claimed the title with a victory over Harlow Bussey Daly.

1 2 3 4 5 6 Rosenfeld X 0 1 1 1 1 4.0 Marshall 1 X 0 1 1 3.5 Jaffe 0 1 X 0 1 1 3.0 Moorman 0 0 1 X 1 2.5 Daly 0 0 0 X 1 1.5 Roething 0 0 0 0 X 0.5

So who was Herbert Rosenfeld? He was a strong member of the Manhattan Chess Club, who on the basis of this result won a spot in the 1910 Anglo-American Cable Match on the strength of this victory. Unfortunately, his career was cut short by an untimely death in late 1913.
