    Saint Petersburg 1895/96
    Catalog Code: B0025CA

    With the conclusion of the great Hastings Tournament in September of 1895, it became apparent that a new chess star of the first magnitude had appeared: Harry Nelson Pillsbury. His debut was dramatic and striking, for this virtual unknown had eclipsed the best players of that time with a combination of élan and grace. However, the revelation of a new world-class player brought with it the natural questions of both skeptics and admirers, some demanding verification and others eager to see their hero demonstrate his mastery with further verve. The five highest players at Hastings were invited for the St. Petersburg tournament: Pillsbury, Chigorin, Lasker, Tarrasch and Steinitz. Tarrasch declined, the others accepted. Each of these players had plenty of reason to fight hard for first place in Saint Petersburg 1895/96. It is one of the strongest chess tournaments ever held.

    Chicago 1926/Lake Hopatcong 1926 Chess Tournaments

Lake Hopatcong 1926 was a stronger double-round event with Capablanca winning ahead of Kupchik, Maroczy, Marshall and Ed.Lasker.
