The Carlsbad 1911 chess tournament was one of four well-known international chess tournaments held in the spa city of Carlsbad (Bohemia, then Austria-Hungary Empire). The other tournament years were 1907, 1923 and 1929.[1]

The opening ceremony was held at the imperial bath hotel Kurhaus (Kaiserbad) on 20 August 1911. Twenty-six chess masters were invited to participate in the enormous round-robin tournament (325 games!). Of the top players in the world then only two were missing from the tournament: Emanuel Lasker and José Raúl Capablanca. The participants played from 20 August to 24 September 1911. At the end Richard Teichmann was the winner.[2]
