In 1900, the world of chess was different from today, with a strong European dominance in the game. There was no official World Chess Championship as we know it now, and the concept of a single world champion had not yet fully solidified. Instead, various strong players were recognized for their achievements and prowess.
Here are a few notable chess players from around 1900:
Emmanuel Lasker (1868-1941): Lasker is one of the most prominent chess players of this era. He would later become the World Chess Champion in 1894 and hold the title until 1921. His reign as champion was one of the longest in chess history.
William Steinitz (1836-1900): Steinitz, originally from Bohemia, was the first officially recognized World Chess Champion, a title he held from 1886 until he was defeated by Lasker in 1894. Steinitz continued to be a significant figure in chess until his death in 1900.
Siegbert Tarrasch (1862-1934): Tarrasch was a leading German chess player and theoretician of the time. He was known for his contributions to chess strategy and for his strong tournament performances.
Harry Nelson Pillsbury (1872-1906): Pillsbury was an American chess prodigy and grandmaster. He was known for his tactical brilliance and had several impressive tournament victories.
Mikhail Chigorin (1850-1908): Chigorin was a Russian chess player who was one of the top players of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was known for his aggressive and imaginative style of play.
These players, among others, were the leading figures in the chess world around 1900. While there was no official World Chess Championship at the time, these individuals made significant contributions to chess theory and left a lasting legacy in the game. It’s worth noting that the concept of the official World Chess Championship would be more clearly defined in the coming years, with Emanuel Lasker’s reign as the second official World Chess Champion solidifying the title’s significance.
