Monte Carlo 1901
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In order to stimulate tourism to the seaside resort of Monte Carlo during the winter season, Prince Dadian of Mongrelia and Arnous de Rivière organized the first in a series of master chess tournaments to be held from February 1st to March 1st in 1901. Fourteen chess masters were invited to participate, but play was delayed until the 4th of February to observe the funeral of Queen Victoria I of England. The scoring format for this tournament gave ¼ of a point to each player for a draw played. The two players were then required to replay the game with colors reversed, where a win was worth ½ a point, a draw worth another ¼ point, and a loss worth 0. David Janowski won the tournament and the grand prize of 5000 Francs, while the second through sixth place finishers enjoyed their share of a 7300 Franc prize pool. The remaining players received minor compensation for their participation. Several games, although their scores and partial move orders still exist, have been omitted from this collection due to being incomplete.

The crosstable and final standings (see tournament format above for scoring):
