1929 World Chess Championship
Compiled by Penguincw
--*--

★★★ INTRO ★★★

The 1929 World Chess Championship was between 36 year old defending champion Alexander Alekhine of France and 40 year old challenger Efim Bogoljubov.

★★★ BACKGROUND ★★★

After beating Capablanca, Alekhine allowed a re-match, but Capablanca had to fund it, and Alekhine would receive the majority of it, regardless of what happened. An Alekhine-Capablanca re-match didn't happened. Instead, Bogoljubov challenged Alekhine. He seemed like a very aggressive player, often risking the game for a win. Bogoljubov was the clear underdog, but was still up for the task.

★★★ CONDITIONS ★★★

The winner would be the first to achieve 6 wins AND have more than 15 points. The match was played in Germany and the Netherlands. Round 1 was played on September 6th, 1929. Note: The match is measured in the amount of wins, with the total amount of points are measured in brackets.

★★★ FINAL ★★★

The match concluded with Game 25 on November 12th, 1929. Alekhine won with a score of 11-5 in wins and 15 1/2-9 1/2 points in total.
