Dr. Tarrasch in Switzerland: Zurich

Dr. Tarrasch has successfully completed his tour of Italy. We understand that the Doctor sojourned in Rome for a few days on his way north from Naples and was very much taken with the beauty and charm of the Eternal City. The latest report that we have to hand places the Praeceptor Germaniae in Zurich, where on the 24th inst. he faced the consulting team of Dr. Müller, Dr. Blass, and Herr K. Biedendorf in a hard-fought contest that ended in favor of the allies after 48 moves. The game is appended; the finale, in which the White players sacrifice a Rook in order to ensure the advance of their d-pawn, is most worthy of attention.
