Feb-28-07  SBC: Tim Harding stated that Pillsbury, the American champion, won a prize for this game vs the Italian champion, Arturo Reggio during the 1902 Monte Carlo tournament.

Does anyone know what prize this might have been?

Apr-21-07  ath: Jacques Pope's biography of Pillsbury (Ann Arbor, 1996, p. 157) suggests that the MacCutcheon prize (500 francs) was awarded to Pillsbury for the Pillsbury-Marshall game (round 21).

If you look at
Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1902, Marshall blundered a piece away, whereas in this game Pillsbury win it during an attack.

<SBC> Why don't you ask Tim Harding directly ?

Apr-22-07  ath: Let's tweak those numbers a bit further:

Digging further into contemporary sources, I find a notice in Deutsche Schachzeitung, October, 1902 (p. 321), that there seem to have been two MacCutcheon prizes at 500 francs. The one for the best defense was awarded to Mason for his game against Gunsberg. The one for the best attack was awarded Pillsbury for his game against Marshall.
