Berlin 1897
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In 1897, during the 70th anniversary of the Berliner Schachgesellschaft, twenty chess masters were invited to particpate in an international round robin event to celebrate. Despite being the only international master tournament organized for the year, there were a few noticable absences among the participants, including the world champion Emanuel Lasker, former world champion Wilhelm Steinitz, Germany's strongest player Siegbert Tarrasch, and the strongest chess master of the Americas Harry Nelson Pillsbury. However, several notable chess masters were in attendance making it the one great event to follow for the year. Of note were Mikhail Chigorin, Joseph Henry Blackburne, Simon Winawer, David Janowski, and Carl Schlechter. Also included were Rudolf Charousek, who had tied Chigorin for first at Budapest the previous year, and Carl Walbrodt who was brought in as a last minute replacement for Arnold Schottlaender. Curt Von Bardeleben, although invited, was forced to withdraw after a short draw in the first round to Johannes Metger. His games were cancelled, including the draw. Berthold Englisch also withdrew after round eleven, thus forfeiting the rest of his games. All games decided by forfeit have been omitted from this collection. The participants played in the Architektenhaus from September 13th to October 4th. Though Blackburne lead for most of the event, the final rounds of the tournament belonged to Charousek and Walbrodt. Charousek finished with a nine game winning streak and clear first place. Walbrodt, though an alternate, had the best tournament performance of his life, achieving clear second in the strong field. Charousek won 2000 Marks for his victory and Walbrodt earned 1500 for the silver. Despite the young men's success in the exhausting event, both would die within just a few years of the completion of this tournament.
