Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
New York Masters (1911)
Organized by the American Chess Bulletin, the 1911 New York Masters was designed as both a strong national tournament as well as a warmup for Marshall and Capablanca prior to the San Sebastian (1911) tournament. The dates of 1/22/1911 - 2/3/1911 were chosen and no rest days scheduled with this in mind. Capablanca could not arrive from Havana to play any sooner than 1/22 and both he and Marshall had to leave on 2/4. Most games were played at the Cafe Boulevard, but Rounds 8-11 were played at the New York chess clubs that helped sponsor the tournament (Manhattan CC, Staten Island CC, Brooklyn CC, and Rice CC). The time control was 36 moves in 2 hours and 18 moves per hour after that. Games began at 11:30 AM with a meal break at 5:30 PM and resumed at 7:30 PM.

Marshall played solidly, losing no games and giving up four draws. In Round 4, Capablanca played a dubious gambit against Black (Capablanca vs R T Black, 1911) and could not recover from the poor opening. Despite a strong finish (7 wins and one draw in his last 8 games), Capablanca could not quite catch Marshall, and finished second. Capablanca would have his revenge at San Sebastian (1911), winning a much stronger tournament in his European debut.
