Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Grünfeld - Becker (1922)

Prior to Bad Pistyan (1922), Ernst Gruenfeld played four serious games against Albert Becker to test opening systems. (1)

The match took place in the German Chess Club in Vienna from 14 March 1922 to 19 March 1922 and ended drawn (+1 -1 =2). (2)

Grünfeld was not successful with the Benoni Defense in Game 2. In his annotations, Becker said that Grünfeld, apart from the unfavourable opening agreed upon before, had made no mistakes in that game. Grünfeld was more successful in Game 4. That was the first time he played the Grünfeld Defense, which was later named after him to honour his contributions.
