Gruenfeld - Tartakower, Vienna, 1922
Compiled by Karpova
--*--

On his returning from Bad Pistyan (1922), Ernst Gruenfeld announced that he would like to play a match. Savielly Tartakower was willing to contest a 6-games match immediately, for a 180,000 Kronen match purse.(1)

The financing of the games was secured in a short time, thanks to the Austrian Chess Federation, the Landstrasser Chess Federation, the Chess division Hakoah, the German Chess Club, von Döry and Godai. Theodor Gerbec donated the brilliancy prize.(1)

The match took place in Vienna from 25 June 1922 to 1 July 1922 and ended drawn (+1 -1 =4).(1)

Games 1, 2, 4 and 5 were played in the German Chess Club in Vienna, Game 2 in the Chess Club Hakoah and Game 6 in the Landstrasser Chess Federation.(2)
