I came across following interesting information about Chess Grandmasters. Don’t know if it’s true; probably it is.
THIS DAY IN CHESS HISTORY: On April 21, 1914 at the start of the St. Petersburg International chess tournament.
It was in this tournament the term “grandmasters” were first used. When the preliminaries were concluded the top five qualifiers were Capablanca, Lasker, Tarrasch, Alekhine and Marshall will play a double round finals.
World Champion Lasker was clear first in the finals when the dust settled with 13.5 points. Capablanca half a point behind followed by Alekhine (10), Tarrasch(8.5) and Marshall (8.0) respectively.
