Few tournaments can boast not only the presence of the past, present and future world champion but also two challengers for the supreme title. New York 1924 was one of this elite group. The old champion Lasker -now in his late fifties - engaged in the most ferocious race for first prize with his victorious opponent from the previous championship match - Capablanca. Although Capablanca won one of their individual games Lasker soared into the lead and never let go. The old maestro thus produced one of the most devastating tournament performances of all time - finishing way ahead of Capablanca himself and the future champion Alekhine.
