Tarrasch v Schlechter - Match 1911
Compiled by Chessical
--*--

This match was part of the German Chess Association Congress in Cologne (July-August 1911). If by 12th August, neither player was more than one game ahead, the match would be declared a draw.

It was a very hard fought affair with both players equally matched, and two games went to over 100 moves.

48 year old Tarrasch against the 36 year old Schlechter who was on top form having held Lasker to a draw in their world championship match the previous year. Schlechter was not able to dominate the match, despite several very long games Tarrasch did not wilt and it was Schlechter who had to catch up three times. Schlechter was criticised in print for not fighting hard enough for victory.

Overall Tarrasch had a life score of +2 against Schlechter.
