Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Ostend (1905)

The first in a planned series of three international chess master tournaments held in the coastal town of Ostend, Belgium was conducted at the local casino from June 12th to July 18th, 1905. Fourteen chess masters were invited to participate in the double round robin event, including major participants and earlier winners of the Monte Carlo tournament series of the previous four years. The best of these players included David Janowski, Geza Maróczy, Siegbert Tarrasch, and Carl Schlechter. As he did in Monte Carlo (1902) and Monte Carlo (1904), Maróczy was clear first with an impressive 19˝/26, a full point and a half over shared second place Janowski and Tarrasch. Schlechter placed fourth and Georg Marco and Richard Teichmann shared fifth place (incidentally making this another tournament to contribute to Teichmann's nickname of "Richard the Fifth"). Maróczy's win here along with previous international victories made him a serious contender for a world championship match with Emanuel Lasker, but problems organizing the match in Cuba caused the arrangements to fall through, and Maróczy soon after retired from chess for over a decade.
