St. Petersburg - Savorin cup
Compiled by gauer
--*--

In 1913, Capablanca visited the country to play a series of exhibition knock-out matches against his three adversaries. The conditions to win the gold cup presented by Monsieur Savorin were that Capablanca would win the Savorin Cup (1913) if he did not lose any game of a match against each of the three others. Otherwise, the trophy would be awarded to the opponent with the best score against him: Eugene Aleksandrovich Znosko-Borovsky was declared the winner after he tied his match 1-1 and also won the stakes' side-pot (1).

References: (1) TheFocus offers further details in the explanation to his collection summary for this cup-tournament, but presents it as a series of 3 mini-matches against the separate players in 3 different collections.
