Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Hastings (1919)
The 12th BCF "Special Victory" Congress, held at Hastings from August 11-23, 1919, was not part of the the series of Hastings Christmas Congresses which began in 1920/21. However, it did provide the opportunity for some international action following the Great War with the usual British suspects being joined by several representatives from foreign lands:

Jose Raul Capablanca; Harold Godfrey Cole; Adrian Garcia Conde; Borislav Kostic; Max Marchand; Reginald Pryce Michell; Adolf Georg Olland; Roland Henry Vaughan Scott; George Alan Thomas; Victor Lionel Wahltuch; William Winter; Fred Dewhirst Yates.

The big attraction was Capablanca in his first European tourament in five years. Any thoughts that the supposed lack of first-class practice might have left the Cuban rusty were emphatically destroyed, as he conceded a draw to Kostic while sweeping the rest of the tournament with consummate ease.

OK, it wasn't that easy; he had to keep winning since Kostic was nipping at his heels the whole way. And there was that incredible blip in round 4 against Thomas, who resigned in a drawn position after Capablanca missed a simple win (well, simple later!). See Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919 for the details.
