Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Frankfurt (1930)

In September of 1930 an international chess tournament was held in Frankfurt, Germany. The main event was attended by exceptional chess masters from Europe and the United States. The notable participants were Aron Nimzowitsch, Jacques Mieses, Friedrich Saemisch, and Isaac Kashdan. Fresh off his win from Karlsbad the previous year, Nimzowitsch took clear first here continuing his campaign to challenge Alexander Alekhine for the world chess crown. Kashdan, the recent Manhattan Chess Club champion, took clear second, finishing undefeated a full two points ahead of the shared third place finishers.
