  whiteshark: "At a rapid tournament in Breslau in 1925, part of the first prize was enough silk to make six shirts.

Nimzovich, taking it for granted that he would win, found out everything he could about the silk even before the tournament began.

As it happened, however, Mieses defeated him in the first round and went on to win the tournament and the silk."
