26 THE WESTMINSTER BUDGET AUGU ST 5. 1898 The following;- is an abbreviated table giving the result amo •> prize-winners only : o s Mhe CLOSE OF THE VIENNA TOURNAMENT. (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) VIENNA, July 27. . The result of the prolonged contest resulted in a dead-heat between Pillsbury and Dr. Tarrasch. The result is as it should be, these two players having run together all through the contest. If anythifrgy Dr. Tarrasch deserves the higher praise, for the simple reason that in the closing rounds he had a more arduous task to perform than Pillsbury, having had to "encounter more potent opponents than the latter, In his last two games with Alapin and Walbrodt the Doctor has given evidence of" those high qualities for which he was justly famed—intense power *of concentration, deep calculation, and unflagging patience. The game with Walbrodt on the last day looked anything but promising Tor him, yet he waited patiently for the right moment, and then only he DR. TARRASCH. II. N. PILLSBURY •commenced a final attack which his opponent could not;repel, thus securing a well-deserved victory, and a chance ot a tie with Pillsbury for the'first prize. The tie match commenced this morning at ten o'clock. Mr. Hoffer having drawn for the first move, it fell to Dr Tarrasch, who opened with a Ruy Lopez. The winner of a majority out of iour games to be the victor, draws counting. The distribution, of the prizes took place last night at seven o'clock, the pleasing task being performed by Herr Leopold Trelutsch and Herr Alexander Neumann.' The prizes were handed over in elegant silk purses, accompanied by an artistically-illuminated diploma. The following were the winners : Tie for first and second prizes between H. N. Pillsbury, of New York, and Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch, of Nuremberg, 6JO0O and 4,000 crowns. Third, D. Janowsky; of Paris 2,500 crowns. Fourth, W. Steinitz, of New York .............. 1,500 Fifth, C.

Walbrodt, of Berlin 200 ,, Third, A. Halprin, of Vienna. 100 Dr. Tarrasch, born in Breslau,. March 5, 1862, won the first prize in Breslau, 1B89, Manchester, 1890, Dresden, 1892, and Leipsic, 1894. His prototype is Dr.Zukertort,and he is an adherent and staunch supporter of the modern school. Pillsbury came to the fore with a rush at Hastings, 1895. His successes are too recent to heed recapitulation. Young, ardent, impetuous, scientific, and imaginative, he is the ideal of a first-class player. : . .
