  1. 5th German Championship - Bad Oeynhausen 1938
    The tournament book by Lachaga states that the 13th round game, Kranki vs Reinhardt, was won by Reinhardt, but the game score is missing.

    120 games, 1939

  3. Albin - Marco 1901

  4. Bad Nauheim 1935
    The first of three master chess tournaments held in Bad Nauheim, Germany was organized in 1935. Ten chess masters from Germany and Austria, the most notable of whom was Efim Bogoljubov, participated in the round robin event. Bogoljubov finished clear first with +3, dropping just one game to shared second Engels.

    The final standings:

    1st Bogoljubov 6 points (+4, -1, =4);

    =2nd Engels 5.5 points (+5, -3, =1);

    =2nd Eliskases 5.5 points (+4, -2, =3);

    4th Opocensky 5 points (+2, -1, =6);

    =5th Stoltz 4.5 points (+4, -4, =1);

    13 games, 1895

  8. Chigorin - Schiffers - Sixth Match - 1897
    14 games, 1897

  9. Harrwitz - Loewenthal (1853)
    Match began on the 26th of September, location being the Ship Hotel in Charing Cross.

    I've chosen to number the games to reflect the two forfeited games (8 & 9), because their score is relevant to the state of the match i.e., the race to eleven wins. Contemporary sources, such as the <British Chess Review> and the <Field> discounted them, meaning their numeration ran only to 31. If justification is necessary, see Fischer vs Spassky, 1972.

    31 games, 1853

    7 games, 1945-1967

  16. Skopje 1967
    Following the rebuilding of the Macedonian capital Skopje, Yugoslavia organized the first in a series of international chess tournaments to be held in Skopje, as well as the two nearby villages of Krusevo and Ochrid, in 1967. The first "Turnir solidarnosti" featured a field of twelve Yugoslavian chess masters headed by grandmaster Milan Matulovic. Visiting participants included Peter Dely from Hungary, Luben Popov from Bulgaria, and Bela Soos from Romania. As was expected, the Soviet Union sent emissaries to participate as well in the guise of two veteran grandmasters, Efim Geller and Ratmir Kholmov. This was perhaps calculated on the Soviet Chess School's part as the final participant was Bobby Fischer, who participated on behalf of the United States. Fischer had just recently returned to regular international competition and Skopje would be an important stop on his road to the Sousse interzonal tournament, which he announced he would be participating in later in the year. Going into this event, not only did Matulovic have a plus score against Fischer, but Geller and Kholmov as well, making them excellent choices to potentially stifle the upstart American's chances. And stifle it almost did: Fischer lost his second round game to Geller, and after the ninth round, despite being tied for first with Kholmov ahead of Geller, Fischer announced he would withdraw from the tournament unless the chess sets were modified and the spectators removed from further rounds. The organizers were in a panic as they could not meet the second demand and Fischer forfeited his tenth round game. However, upon Fishcer's arrival to complete an adjourned game, a compromise within the playing hall was reached and Fischer was allowed to replay his tenth round game. Despite the high drama that often came with Fischer's participation, he found his form and managed to defeat both Matulovic and Kholmov in their encounters in the latter half of the tournament and go on to secure clear first upon the event's completion.
