Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Budapest (1929)

In 1839, Jozsef Szen founded the Budapest Chess Club (Pesti Sakk-kor), and 90 years later this was celebrated with a memorial tournament, as a follow-up of Budapest (1928). As the year before, former World Champion (1921-1927) Capablanca won without losing a single game. Prize monies were 1500, 1200, 900, 750, 500, 400 and 300 Pengö (so that Thomas and Vajda each received 750 + 500 = 1250/2 = 625 Pengö). A beauty prize went to Steiner for E Steiner vs Tartakower, 1929. The tournament was led by the 'retiring' Geza Maroczy, and a summary in Wiener Schach-Zeitung Nr. 18 (Sept. 1929) pp. 273-276 can be found online at http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/a... (in German).

The tournament's Round 5 coincided with Game 1 of the Alekhine - Bogoljubov World Championship Match (1929), and this took some attention away from it.
