Sample text

He may not be winning this tournament, but it appears that he's content to breeze through it, drawing all of his games and keeping his unbeaten string intact. Reti finally locates a pen in the unfathomable depths of his briefcase. He puts the case on the floor beside him, uncaps the pen, and fills out his scoresheet. The players shake hands and Reti, the player of White, looks at the board for a moment before grasping the g1-Knight... AFTER THE GAME Reti has won!! Capablanca tips his King, then sits silently for a moment, staring blankly at the board.

The outcome of the game is a foregone conclusion in Alekhine's mind. Janowski, however, has other plans. He's still savoring the sweet taste of yesterday's victory, and he fully intends to give Alekhine the fight of his life. After Janowski fills out the top of his scoresheet, he puts down his pen and stares straight into Alekhine's eyes, a stare that never wavers and looks to be able to bore a hole in solid concrete. Alekhine replies with a sneer as his hand moves toward the d-pawn... AFTER THE GAME Janowski sighs, stops the clocks, and holds out his hand in resignation.

The supposedly "weak" Janowski and the inexperienced Edward Lasker are keeping pace with Capablanca and Marshall, two of the event's "heavyweights". Can they maintain their fine standings? We'll see what happens this round... At 1:30 in the afternoon, we enter the lobby of the Alamac Hotel. Reti and Tartakower are conspiring together near the stairway. Reti laughs aloud at something Tartakower is saying. Then Tartakower turns and walks toward the hallway. Reti spots us and comes over, still grinning.
