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.
