Karlsbad 1929
Compiled by JoseTigranTalFischer
--*--

The fifth international master chess tournament to be held in the spa resort of Karlsbad, Czechoslovakia in 1929 was a round robin event involving 22 of the best chess masters in the world. Of the top players, only world champion Alexander Alekhine and former world champion Emanuel Lasker were missing. The line up of players included such names as Jose Capablanca, Efim Bogoljubov, Frank Marshall, Akiba Rubinstein, Milan Vidmar, Aron Nimzowitsch, and Rudolph Spielmann. Among the remaining invitations, one notable participant was Vera Menchik, the women's world champion, who joined despite the protests of some male colleagues, including fellow participant Albert Becker. The tournament was held in the Kurhaus Imperial Hotel from July 30th to August 28th. The time control used was 30 moves in two hours followed by 15 moves in one hour. Despite Spielmann's amazing beginning of 9 points earned in the first ten rounds followed by Capablanca's shared lead in the standings from the thirteenth round on, it was to be Nimzowitsch's "finest hour," with a win over Savielly Tartakower propelling him to first place and the grand prize of 20,000 Kronen. Although he used this victory to campaign for his right to challenge Alekhine for the world championship, losses to the world champion at San Remo in 1930 and Bled in 1931 would dash his chances of competing for the world crown. Nevertheless, this victory amongst such a field of chess masters would shine as the high point of Nimzowitsch's career.
