Berlin 1881
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The second meeting of the Deutschen Schachkongresse took place in Berlin in 1881. It was the second master's tournament (Deutschen Schachbund) organized in the two years since Berthold Englisch last won it in Leipzig in 1879. Once again, a large field of German chess masters shared the board with many of the best that Europe had to offer. The brightest lights among the German participants were Louis Paulsen and his brother Wilifred, and Johannes Minckwitz. Great Britain was represented by the participation of Joseph Henry Blackburne and James Mason. Mikhail Chigorin travelled over from Russia, and two great masters from Poland, Symon Winawer and Johannes Zukertort, also participated. The eighteen collected masters constituted a field of strength that had not been seen since Baden Baden eleven years earlier. The games were fiercely fought, as few draws were recorded, and a formula from this event would serve as a template for all future chess congresses in Germany before the Great War. Karl Pitschel, from the Austrio-Hungarian Empire, arrived and played his games in the first three rounds, but was unable to complete the tournament, so his score and the games were expunged from the final tournament record. His games have been included here for historical completeness. Also, one game decided by forfeit in the last round, Blackburne's win over Josef Noa, is not included in this collection. Speaking of Blackburne winning, this was perhaps his finest tournament performance ever. He dominated the field with an amazing final score of 14/16, losing only one game to his countryman Mason, and earning wins against some of the best and up and coming chess masters of the day.

The final standings and crosstable:
