Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Gothenburg B (1920)
The event was sponsored by Erik Olson, who became the manager of Pripp & Lyckholm, a well-known brewery in Gothenburg. He and the chess patron Ludvig Collijn saw the need to set Swedish chess moving after the war, and offered (together with Rudolf Herzog) 20.000 Kroner in prize money. The Gothenburg Chess Club had celebrated its 40th anniversary last year with a chess problem tournament, and had hosted the 9th Nordic Congress (1919).

The event was opened on August 1 by Joel Fridlizius, the chairman of the Göteborg Chess Club, and then the players were welcomed by the "honorary speaker" Martin Anderson. The players were split into 3 groups, A, B (this page) and C. After dinner there was a blitz tournament won by Borislav Kostic. The regular tournament started on 2 August. Playing time was 11-3 and 5-9 pm with 5 games per week for three weeks, and no play on Sundays. The rules of the Deutscher Schachbund applied. Chief controller of play was Martin Anderson.
