1934 World Chess Championship
Compiled by Penguincw
--*--

★★★ INTRO ★★★

The 1934 World Chess Championship was between 41 year old defending champion Alexander Alekhine of France and 45 year old challenger Efim Bogoljubov of Nazi Germany.

★★★ BACKGROUND ★★★

This wasn't the first time these two players played for the title (see Game Collection: 1929 World Chess Championship), as despite all the new talent coming up, Alekhine chose Bogoljubov for a re-match.

★★★ CONDITIONS ★★★

The conditions for the winner were the same as last time. The first player to win six games AND have more than 15 points would be the winner. The match took place in Germany. Game 1 was played on April 1st, 1934. Note: The match is measured in wins. The total amount of points is measured in brackets.

★★★ FINAL ★★★

The final round (Round 26) on June 14th, 1934 had the game being drawn. This meant that Alekhine had successfully defended his title. In wins, Alekhine had 8 wins against Bogoljubov's 3. In total was 15 1/2-10 1/2.
