1936 US Championship
Compiled by crawfb5
--*--

For links to other post-Marshall and pre-Fischer US championship collections, see Game Collection: US championship tournaments (meta).

I have not found these four games, despite rounding up the usual suspects:

Round 8 -- Denker-Treysman 0-1
Round 10 -- Horowitz-Kupchik draw
Round 13 -- Morton-Hanauer draw
Round 13 -- Bernstein-Horowitz draw

This was the first USCF-sponsored tournament for the US championship. Frank James Marshall finally bowed to the inevitability of a transition from match play for the US championship to an invitational tournament. After he won the title from Showalter in 1909 (Game Collection: Marshall -- Showalter 1909 match), Marshall defended it only once, in 1923 (Game Collection: Marshall -- Ed. Lasker 1923 match). This lack of activity, due in part to the inability of potential challengers to raise sufficient funds to meet Marshall's conditions, fueled the demand for a championship tournament held on a regular basis. At first, Marshall said he would play, but as the tournament became less of an idea and more of a reality, Marshall formally resigned his title and announced he would not play in the tournament. The Marshall Chess Club donated a trophy for the US championship named the <Frank J. Marshall trophy>.

Dake, Fine, Horowitz, Kashdan, Kevitz, Kupchik, Reshevsky, and H. Steiner were all seeded directly into the tournament. Edward Lasker was to be seeded as well, but he did not play. The remaining players had to earn a spot by finishing in one of the top two places in a 12-player qualifying section. Factor and Simonson qualified out of Section A, Adams and Denker qualified out of Section B, Bernstein and Treysman qualified out of Section C, and Hanauer and Morton qualified out of Section D. The finals were held at the Hotel Astor in New York 25 Apr - 16 May 1936. Marshall, Hermann Helms, and Fritz Brieger served as tournament directors.

THE PLAYERS

Winter's Chess Notes has this photo of the players from <Chess Review>: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...

Samuel Reshevsky -- Reshevsky was a famous child prodigy who gave up competitive play for several years to focus on his education. After returning to active play in the 1930s, Reshevsky dominated the US championship until the ascendence of Robert James Fischer in the late 1950s. Reshevsky had an unusually long playing career. Reshevsky played on eight US Olympiad teams, winning one team gold, one team bronze, and one individual bronze medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/mg...).

Albert Charles Simonson -- Simonson was the reserve on the gold-medal US team at the 1933 Folkstone Olympiad (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/ks...).

Reuben Fine -- Fine was a world-class player that never won the US championship. His best international result would be equal first with Paul Keres at AVRO 1938. He was invited to the world championship tournament organized in 1948 to pick a successor to Alexander Alekhine, who died while holding the title. Fine decided not to play. He was involved in his graduate work in psychology and only played competitive chess for a few more years after earning his degree. Fine played on three US Olympiad teams, winning three team and one individual gold medal and one individual silver medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/rn...).

George N Treysman -- Treysman was known more for being a strong chess hustler in New York City than a tournament player, although he also played in the 1938 US championship.

Isaac Kashdan -- Despite being a world-class player in his day, Kashdan was never able to negotiate a championship match with Marshall and once the tournament began he would never win the US championship. He was robbed of the title in 1942 by an incorrect ruling in a critical game between Reshevsky and Denker, which meant Reshevsky tied Kashdan for first instead of Kashdan winning the tournament outright. Kashdan lost the playoff match to Reshevsky, and that was as close as he would ever come to being US champion. Kashdan took over as chess editor for the <Los Angeles Times> after Steiner's death. Kashdan became an International Arbiter after his active playing days and directed both Game Collection: First Piatigorsky Cup 1963 and Game Collection: Second Piatigorsky Cup 1966. Kashdan played on five US Olympiad teams, winning three team and two individual gold medals, one team and one individual silver medal, and two individual bronze medals (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/vx...).

Arthur William Dake -- Dake was on three gold-medal US Olympiad teams, winning one individual gold and one individual silver medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/u4...).

Abraham Kupchik -- Two of Kupchik's best results were at Lake Hopatcong; 1923, where he tied with Marshall for first, and 1926, where he finished second behind Capablanca. He also drew a match (+1 -1 =4) with Carlos Torre Repetto in New York in 1924. Kupchik played on one US Olympiad team, winning a team gold and an individual bronze medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/3z...). A brief summary of Kupchik's career along with a photo of him playing Capablanca at Lake Hopatcong is at: http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/...

Alexander Kevitz -- Kevitz was Manhattan Chess Club champion numerous times and played on several US teams in international (non-Olympiad) matches.

Israel Albert Horowitz -- Horowitz was long-time editor of <Chess Review>, chess editor of the <New York Times> for many years, author of a number of chess books, and a fixture in US tournaments, particularly those in the northeast. He won the US Open in 1936, 1938, and 1943. Horowitz played on four US Olympiad teams, winning three team and two individual gold medals (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/sw...).

Samuel D Factor -- Factor was active in Chicago-area chess and active in organizing precursors to the USCF. Factor was the nephew of cosmetics businessman <Max Factor>. Factor played on one US Olympiad team, winning a team silver medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/2s...).

Herman Steiner -- Steiner was long-time chess editor for the <Los Angeles Times>. He founded a chess club attended by various celebrity chessplayers. Steiner was the only US player to have a plus score in the 1945 USSR-USA radio match (Game Collection: 1945. USSR vs USA (Radio match)). Steiner won the 1948 US championship ahead of Kashdan. Steiner played on four US Olympiad teams, winning one team gold medal, and one team and one individual silver medals (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/53...).

Arnold Denker -- Denker would win the 1944 US championship ahead of Fine, Horowitz and Steiner. He successfully defended his title in 1946 in a match with Herman Steiner. Later in life he became very active in chess organization in the US and the <Denker Tournament of High School Champions> is named in his honor.

Sidney Norman Bernstein -- Bernstein was active in and around New York City and played in eight US championship tournaments.

Milton Loeb Hanauer -- Hanauer played on one US Olympiad team, winning a team silver medal (http://www.olimpbase.org/players/7x...).

Weaver Warren Adams -- Although a strong US master of his day, Adams is most remembered for his controversial ideas about White's opening advantage. He won the 1946 US Open and played in five US championships.

Harold Morton -- Morton was New England champion several times and was also Horowitz's business partner at <Chess Review> at the time of his death. The two were on an exhibition and promotional tour in the midwest in 1940 when they were involved in an automobile accident in Iowa. Morton was killed and Horowitz seriously injured.

THE RACE

Reshevsky would dominate this early period of US championship tournaments, but he had a difficult time of it in this first one, losing two games and drawing three, winning by a half point with a strong finish. Even then, he needed a bit of last minute help from a couple of opponents.

ROUND 1

Denker and Fine drew. Reshevsky, Horowitz, Kashdan, Steiner, Bernstein, Dake, and Treysman all won.

ROUND 2

Dake, Horowitz, Kashdan, and Treysman all won to lead with 2-0. Denker and Fine won to join Reshevsky and Steiner, who drew Simonson and Kupchik, respectively, at 1.5-.5. Reshevsky was lucky to not have lost and this would have made a huge difference in the tournament had he done so.

ROUND 3

Kashdan beat Horowitz to take sole possesion of the lead at 3-0. Dake, Fine, and Steiner all won to keep within a half point of the lead. Reshevsky lost to Bernstein, which put him a game and a half behind Kashdan.

ROUND 4

Kashdan won again, staying alone in the lead at 4-0. Treysman won, keeping him a half point behind Kashdan. Fine and Dake both drew, so they dropped to a full point behind Kashdan. Reshevsky lost another game, this time to Horowitz. He was now two and a half games behind Kashdan.

ROUND 5

Kashdan lost to Hanauer and Treysman lost to Simonson. This allowed Dake, Fine, Horowitz, and Steiner to close within a half point of the lead. Reshevsky again had a close call against Denker, but managed to win.

ROUND 6

Kashdan won again, as did Dake and Horowitz, maintaining their positions among the leaders. However Fine drew to drop to a full point off the lead and Steiner lost, dropping to a game and a half behind Kashdan. Reshevsky won, maintaining his position a game and a half behind Kashdan.

ROUND 7

Kashdan lost again, this time to Fine. When Dake won, he took sole possession of the lead. Horowitz drew, which put him with Fine and Kashdan, a half point behind Dake. Reshevsky won, bringing him to one point off the lead.

ROUND 8

Reshevsky beat Kashdan, and this is probably where Kashdan missed his best chance to win the tournament. Dake and Fine both won, so Dake kept the lead and Fine was the only player within a half point, but Reshevsky and Treysman were both one point behind Dake.

ROUND 9

Reshevsky drew with Fine and Dake drew with Kashdan. Treysman won, so he was the only player among the leaders to move up, closing to a half point behind Dake. Simonson won, although Morton had the better game.

ROUND 10

A pivotal round where Reshevsky beat Dake and Simonson beat Fine. Treysman won, putting himself in the lead for the first time, with Dake, Reshevsky, and Simonson a half game behind.

ROUND 11

Treysman won against Kashdan, putting Kashdan out of contention. Dake and Fine drew. Reshevsky and Simonson both won, so they still trailed Treysman by a half game.

ROUND 12

Reshevsky beat Treysman to take the lead. Simonson managed to get a win out of a probable draw against Horowitz to share the lead with Reshevsky. Fine won, but Dake lost to Steiner in a long, three-session game, so Dake's hopes began to fade.

ROUND 13

Reshevsky, Simonson, Treysman, and Fine all won, so the relative positions remained unchanged with only two rounds remaining.

ROUND 14

Reshevsky, Simonson, and Treysman all won, but Fine could only draw against Horowitz, so Fine fell out of the running for first.

ROUND 15

Reshevsky's fate depended on Simonson and Treysman. Treysman lost to Fine and Simonson tried too hard to force the issue against Factor and lost. With losses by both of his closest competitors in the final round, Reshevsky was able to take a draw in a better position and won the first USCF-sponsored tournament for the US championship. Even so, Soltis and McCormick quote Reshevsky that, for him, "the tournament will long remain something of a nightmare."
