Vienna 1907
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The first Trebitsch Memorial Tournament was organised and promoted by the Vienna Chess Club in 1907 with funds bequeathed to it by Leopold Trebitsch, a wealthy businessman who had been vice-president of the club until his death on Dec. 12, 1906 -- a month before the tournament. The competition attracted a strong field including such international figures as Oldrich Duras, Jacques Mieses, Geza Maróczy, Milan Vidmar, Savielly Tartakower -- plus a strong coterie of Austrian masters led by Carl Schlechter and Dr. Julius Perlis. "The result was a triumph for players who favor brilliancy in preference to ultra-modern tendencies, Mieses and Duras admittedly producing some of the most effective examples of contemporary chess from the spectacular point of view." -- THE YEAR-BOOK OF CHESS. Victory went to the action-prone Mieses; it was one of the most notable achievements of a professional chess career spanning more than 50 years. In capturing the 1,000-crown first prize, the ebullient Leipziger displayed brilliant form (+9 -2 =2), losing only to Rudolf Spielmann and Duras while taking the measure of Vidmar, Schlechter (an exciting last round affair), Perlis, Heinrich Wolf, Johann Berger, Adolf Albin, Leopold Loewy, Giovanni Martinolich and Ladislav Prokes. Schlechter was awarded the second brilliancy prize for round 2 win over Maróczy in a model Kingside attack lasting 28 moves. Thanks go to Paul Morten and Warren Goldman for the historical background provided to this collection.
