Budapest 1929
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

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 the success with Budapest (1928). As the year before, the former World Champion (1921-1927) Capablanca won. 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.

Prize monies were 1500, 1200, 900, 750, 500, 400 and 300 Pengö (so that Vajda and Thomas each received 750 + 500 = 1250/2 = 625 Pengö). A special 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).
