Event data
Name: Nuremberg Tournament

Start date: 19 July 1896
End date: 10 Aug. 1896
 
Notes:
The tournament opened on 19 July 1896 with a preliminary meeting, but play began on 20 July 1896. Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give end date 11 Aug. 1896; Gaige gives end date 10 Aug. 1896; Pope gives date of Pillsbury's last game as 9 Aug. 1896. Tim Harding (personal communication, from Tarrasch's tournament book and from the Morning Post and the Standard of 11 Aug. 1896) believes the last round was played in 10 Aug. 1896, including Pillsbury's last game (a win against Steinitz). Pope gives location as 'Nuremburg' instead of 'Nuremberg'.
