[what is this?]

Born in Valladolid, Yucatán, Mexico, since age 4 he lived in Liverpool, Bradford, London, Hull, and then in London again.

He won the Liverpool Chess Club Table tournament in 1907/8 and 1908/9, tied for 6-7th in the Hamburg 1910 chess tournament (the 17th DSB Congress, Hauptturnier A, Gersz Rotlewi won), took 6th at San Sebastian 1911 (B tournament, Rodriguez won).

After World War I, he settled in United Kingdom. While living in Hull, he led a team (with H Williams and R Bainbridge) playing White against a team led by Alekhine (with G Barron and E Hanger). The Hull Times described the game (won by Black) as "probably the best game ever played in Hull". He took 10th in the Hastings International Chess Congress 1919 (Summer Congress, José Raúl Capablanca won), tied for 4-5th at Hastings 1922/23 (Akiba Rubinstein won), took 2nd, behind Max Romih, at Scarborough 1925 (Premier A), tied for 3rd-4th at London 1929 (Quadrangular, Frederick Yates won), tied for 6-7th at Ramsgate 1929 (Premier A, William Gibson won), shared 1st with George Koltanowski at Margate 1936 (Premier A), and took 6th at Bournemouth 1939 (Max Euwe won).

Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-27-06  Resignation Trap: Full name: Adrian Garcia Conde. Great Britain. Born May 4, 1886 (Where? I don't know). Died in London England May 13, 1943.
Mar-31-08  whiteshark: <Resignation Trap>
"Nacido en 1886 en Valladolid, Yucatán."


Dec-17-08  whiteshark: Maybe , page 51 gives us a slight lead. There are three <Conde>s, but I think they are identical.

6 San Sebastian, 1911 377
<Condé, A.>:
6-7 Hamburg, 1910 341
<Conde, A. G.>:
10 Hastings, 1919 489
3 Bromley, 1920 502B
1 Bromley, 1920 502C
4-5 Hastings, 1922 574
2 Scarborough, 1925 681
3-4 London, 1929 855
6-7 Ramsgate, 1929 865

As for <Hamburg 1910> This couldn't be the DSB-Congress where Teichmann finished 6th and Aljechin 7th.

Feb-07-09  Mibelz: <whiteshark> Adrián García Conde tied for 6-7th with Solomon Rosenthal at Hamburg 1910 (the 17th DSB Congress, Hauptturnier A, won by Gersz Rotlewi).
Feb-07-09  whiteshark: Thanks <Mibelz> for clearing it up! I see there is now one Haupturnier-A game in the database. The tournament book is still on my wish list.

  GrahamClayton: At the time of the Hamburg 1910 tournament, Conde was living in Antwerp, after leaving Liverpool. He was one of the strongest players in the city, despite being blind.
Jan-14-22  LoveThatJoker: <GrahamClayton> William Winter's published tribute to Conde makes no reference whatsoever to a claim of blindness. What is your source for such an assertion?!
