Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
2nd City Chess Club Tournament (1894)

Held in the city of New York between October 20th through November 15th, this was the second tournament held under the auspices of the City Chess Club. Pillsbury had won the previous 1st City Chess Club Tournament (1893) but only managed an even score here. Especially noteworthy was that this was the first tournament since 1883 that had former World Champion Wilhelm Steinitz as a participant.

  Nosnibor: For correctness of the standings should it not show Pillsbury with 4/9 and Baird 2/9? After all the game between these two was never played.

  Nosnibor: In my last post I should state that Baird finishes on 3/9.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: The following year, three of these players competed in one of the greatest tournaments ever--Hastings 1895. Albin and Steinitz must have felt shocked by the performance of the 3rd player--Pillsbury.
