Margate 1936
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The second of five consecutive international tournaments organized by the Margate chess club at their seaside resort in England was held from April 15th to the 24th, 1936. Former world champion Jose Capablanca was asked back a second time and he agreed to participate, as did five British chess players who were also returning for the second time: Women's world champion Vera Menchik, Philip Stuart Milner-Barry, Brian Patrick Reilly, Edward G Sergeant, and George Alan Thomas all attended. The six returning players were joined by Czech chess master Salomon Flohr, Swedish chess masters Gideon Stahlberg and Erik Ruben Lundin, and British chess master Theodore Tylor. Unlike the other four Margate tournaments from this series, complete records and gamescores are no longer available for this tournament. Thirty-one of the original forty-five games remain and have been included here with the appropriate dates and round information where know. Thanks go to <Benzol> and <Phony Benoni> for their research and help reconstructing this tournament to the level seen here. The tournament proved to be a second consecutive disappointment for Capablanca as he only managed clear second again, behind Flohr. This decade was a good one to Flohr and he would have another victory in Podebrady later in the year, that time facing Alekhine in the standings. Here he beat the former world champion by half a point with wins over half the field.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Flohr 7/9 * 1 1 1 1 1 1

2nd Capablanca 7/9 * 1 1 1 1 1
