* Chess Event Description
Hastings (1922)

In September of 1922, the organizers of the Hastings chess congress decided to hold a masters tournament which would pit two English masters against four of the best from the European continent. The participants of the double round robin were Alexander Alekhine, Efim Bogoljubov, Akiba Rubinstein, Siegbert Tarrasch, George Thomas, and Frederick Yates. Alekhine managed to edge out Rubinstein by half a point in the final round, winning a famous game against Bogoljubov, whereas Rubinstein struggled in vain for over a hundred moves against Thomas.

Hastings, England, 9-21 September 1922

  MissScarlett: Tournament introduction really could do with an overhaul, which is annoying, because it might fall to me to undertake it. But the first thing that needs attention is correcting the start date to September 9th; the 10th was a Sunday.
Jun-27-18  TheFocus: Interesting that the time-limit was 17 moves an hour instead of the more usual 20 moves an hour.
Dec-03-19  cameosis: <missscarlett> according to the official tournament bulletin, the competition started on september 10th, not on september 9th (page ix).
