Monte Carlo 1903
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The quarter of Monte Carlo in the principality of Monaco hosted the third of four chess master tournaments, designed to help bolster tourism during the winter season, in 1903. Only fourteen chess masters participated in the double round robin event, since Mikhail Chigorin was turned away for his criticism of games won by Prince Dadian of Mingrelia, and Semion Alapin, Isidor Gunsberg, and David Janowski were forced to decline due to their invitations being sent last minute. Games were played between February 10th and March 17th in the Monte Carlo Casino. When the players complained of the noise to tournament director Arnous de Rivičre he told them they would just have to get used to it. Siegbert Tarrasch won the tournament after several losses in the opening rounds. Geza Maróczy who had won the tournament the previous year came in second. Harry Nelson Pillsbury, whose health in the last few years was steadily declining, managed only third place in what would be his penultimate international tournament. This was also another tournament that would contribute to Richard Teichmann's nickname of "Richard the Fifth" as he placed fifth in the standings just behind Carl Schlechter. Despite the absence of the alternate scoring for draws or replayed games (rules in place in the previous two installments), all of the games were hard fought each round of this event.

The final standings and crosstable:
