Nuremberg 1883
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The third meeting of the Deutschen Schachkongresse took place in Nuremberg in 1883. It was the third master's tournament (Deutschen Schachbund) organized in the two years since Joseph Henry Blackburne last won it in Berlin in 1881. As in the previous two editions, the round robin tournament was an international event, pitting German masters against the best of Europe at the time. Germany was represented by its usual field of strong masters, including Louis and Wilfred Paulsen, Max Lange, and the winner of the 1881 hauptturnier in Berlin, Curt Von Bardeleben. England was represented by the previous Schachkongresse winner Blackburne, James Mason, and Henry Edward Bird. Isidor Gunsberg and Max Weiss represented the Austrio-Hungarian empire, and Simon Winawer had journeyed from Poland. After the international tournaments in Vienna in 1882 and in London this same year, the Deutschen Schachbund was no longer the sole strongest tournament in which to participate. However, the contests that ensued were hard fought and showcased the brilliance of the best players at the time. Winawer, who had shared first in Vienna with the great Wilhelm Steinitz the previous year finished sole first here with a crushing score of fourteen points out of eighteen games. Blackburne almost duplicated his finish from Berlin two years earlier, even going so far as defeating tournament winner Winawer in their head-to-head game, but his greater number of draws was only good enough for second place half a point behind. Blackburne's countryman Mason took third, and the final places were filled out by German masters Johann Berger and newly titled master Bardeleben. The Hauptturnier that ran concurrently with the Schachbund during this third congress saw young Siegbert Tarrasch win his master title and the opportunity to play in the next edition of the Schachkongresse. Of note, Lange forfeited his five final games. There were also two forfeits in the last round: Wilfred forfeited his game against his brother Louis, and Max Bier forfeited his game against Mason. These games have been omitted from this collection. Finally, this was a last hurrah for Winawer. He had been one of the world's strongest chess masters for the past 15 years, but his poor showing at London earlier in the year convinced him to retire. It was only by being ambushed by tournament organizers in Nuremberg (he had traveled there to see a dentist) that he was convinced into participating, making this his last great international chess tournament victory.
