Lasker's Great British Tour (1908)
Compiled by MissScarlett
--*--

Northern Whig, 2nd January 1908, p.3:

It will be gladsome news to all lovers of the Royal game that Dr. Lasker has not, as stated, abandoned his visit to the United Kingdom. He was detained by business, and hopes to arrive in this country about the middle of the present month. In addition to his engagements in the metropolis, he has arranged to visit eighty provincial centres, where he hopes to give exhibitions and lectures.

Captain King's column in the <Hampshire Telegraph> of February 22nd, p.11, crediting Lasker's representative, reports that after 11 engagements in London, Lasker is heading to the provinces. A breakdown of the first 6 displays gives his score as +99 =21 -4.

Yorkshire Telegraph & Star, May 9th 1908, p.3:

<A “Cross Country” Chess Record.

Dr. Lasker, the chess master, has brought his English tour to an end with a fine record. In 64 exhibitions he played 1,349 games, of which he won 1,094, drew 196 and lost only 59. In addition he played eight consultation games, seven of which he won, the other being left drawn. Probably no chess master has played so many games in so short a time, and no one has ever achieved a higher percentage of wins in such a large number of games.>

BCM 1908 notices on tour: p.21; 108 <During his stay in London he lectured and played at eleven London and suburban chess clubs, making a total record of 183 wins, 11 losses and 38 draws.>; p.214 <Since our last issue he has fulfilled engagements at Rochdale, Burnley, North Manchester, Manchester, Leeds, Brighouse, Bradford, Kent Congress, and the Hastings Club.>
