99_Hannover 1926
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

The chess club at Hannover, Germany celebrated its fifty year anniversary by organizing a small, international chess master tournament in 1926. Eight players were invited to participate, including two very strong masters: Aron Nimzowitsch from Denmark, and Akiba Rubinstein from Poland. They met with six German chess masters that included Jacques Mieses, Friedrich Sämisch, Oscar Antze, Hans Duhm, Hermann Von Gottschall, and Walther Von Holzhausen.

Games were played from Monday, August 9th to Tuesday, the 17th.

Nimzowitsch won with a near perfect score of 6½/7, edging out Rubinstein by half a point. Nimzowitsch took the sole lead in round 5, when Rubinstein only drew his game against Sämisch, while he (Nimzowitsch) won his game against Dr. Antze (the famous 81 move queen endgame)

The prizes were awarded to the players at the Hotel Luisenhof. http://www.endgame.nl/Kastens.jpg
