--*--

Three European chess masters were invited to compete against four Dutch players in an international tournament organized in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from May 25th to the 31st, 1920. Among the participants were Hungarian chess master Géza Maroczy, Czechoslovakian chess master Richard Réti, Hypermodern chess master Dr. Savielly Tartakower, and talented amateur Max Euwe leading the Dutch contingent. The seven players competed in a round robin event. Several exhibition matches with Euwe were played around the tournament, including one with the eventual winner Réti. His win here was the start of a string of successes for the young hypermodern master that would span the 1920's.
