Breslau 1889
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The sixth meeting of the Deutschen Schachkongresse took place in Breslau in 1889. It was the sixth master's tournament (Deutschen Schachbund) organized since its inception ten year's previously at Leipzig in 1879. As in the previous five 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 Paulsen, Siegbert Tarrasch, Alexander Fritz, Max Harmonist, Johannes Metger, Jacques Mieses, Emil Schallopp, Curt von Bardeleben, Johannes Von Minckwitz, and Johann Bauer who had won his spot by winning the 1887 Frankfurt Hauptturnier master title. The German masters were joined from Great Britain by Joseph Henry Blackburne, who was the winner of the second Deutschen Schachbund at Berlin in 1881, Amos Burn, George Hatfeild Gossip, Isidor Gunsberg, and James Mason. The field was completed by Semion Alapin and Emmanuel Schiffers from Russia, and Johann Berger from Austria. The eighteen assembled chess masters participated in one of the strongest international events of 1889 (and many would make their way over to the United States to participate in the New York international tournament later in the year). The event was significant in signaling the arrival of Tarrasch as one of the top players in the latter 19th century. He won clear first, undefeated with +9 at the final, a whole point and half ahead of second place Burn. Tarrasch's play was soon considered a school of thought that would antagonize both Steinitz's methods as well as the school of chess thought Emanuel Lasker's play would represent later. Here, Tarrasch dominated with his so-called "correct play," and won international tournaments of merit up through the turn of the century. It was also the first of three eventual titles he would earn at the Deutschen Schachbund, a feat only to be matched by Carl Schlechter later.
