Bad Kissingen 1928
Compiled by JoseTigranTalFischer
--*--

Bad Kissingen (1928)
Twelve of the best masters around came to the Bavarian spa town of Bad Kissingen for an all-star tournament: Efim Bogoljubov, Jose Raul Capablanca, Max Euwe, Frank James Marshall, Jacques Mieses, Aron Nimzowitsch, Richard Reti, Akiba Rubinstein, Rudolf Spielmann, Siegbert Tarrasch, Savielly Tartakower, Fred Dewhirst Yates.

While this was an opportunity for Capablanca to regain some of his luster after the match with Alekhine, it was Bogoljubov who pulled another one of those commanding performances out of his hat to finish on top by a point. Such performances provided a good reason for Alekhine to pick him as a match opponent.

A big push in the middle of the tournament gave Bogoljubov a 1.5 point lead over Capablanca, whom Spielmann had defeated in round 6 for what would prove to be his only victory in the event. Capablanca got to within 1/2 point by defeating Bogoljubov in round 9, but no closer. The tournament also saw an excellent performance by Max Euwe, who stayed near the top before fading at the very end.
