Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
The Hague (1921)

In October of 1921, ten chess players of strength ranging from master to amateur met at The Hague, The Netherlands to particpate in a round robin tournament. Among the participants were veterans like Jacques Mieses and Georg Marco, and established masters like Alexander Alekhine, Akiba Rubinstein, and Savielly Tartakower. Max Euwe, an amateur, participated by virtue of having become the new Dutch champion earlier in the year. The event was another victory for Alekhine, who would go on to dominate tournaments and the elite for decades to come, most as world champion.

  TheFocus: To A. Rubinstein, S. Tartakower and G. Marco have been awarded the brilliancy prizes in the masters' tournament at The Hague for their games with G. Marco, M. Ei we and F.D. Yates, respectively. The <British Chess Magazine> remarks: "The award to Marco is rather curious, for it was Yates who should have won the game, had he played correctly, and the brilliancy was a forced one!"

See <American Chess Bulletin>, April 1922, pg. 71.
