Well Ed, I can give you my opinion on the first part of your question, but I'm baffled as how to respond to the second part of your poser.

The New York International Tournament of 1924 is at the top of my list, with the likes of Capablanca/ Alekhine/ Emanuel Lasker/ Edward Lasker/ Marshall/ Janowski/ Bogoljubow/Reti/ Yates and Maroczy ...... WoW, such talent here ! ! !


Running at a very close second is Hastings, 1895


Standing: Albin, Schlecter, Janowski, Marco, Blackburne, Maroczy, Schiffers, Gunsberg, Burn, Tinsley
Sitting: Vergani, Steinitz, Tchigorin, Lasker, Pillsbury, Tarrasch, Mieses, Teichmann

Can you imagine what these talented players might have achieved, if they had the use of just some of today's technologies we are blessed to have ..?..?..?.. Mind Bogling !
ImageChess is more than simply my pastime .... It has become My Passion !
