B13 Mieses gets mauled

Jacques Mieses (Leipzig, 27 February 1865 – London, 23 February 1954) was a German-born Jewish chess Grandmaster and writer. He became a naturalized British citizen after World War II. Mieses was a dangerous attacker with a number of brilliant victories to his credit, e.g. against Frank Marshall (Monte Carlo 1903). His best achievement was to win the first Trebitsch Memorial at Vienna 1907, and he came third at the 28-round Masters tournament at Ostend the same year. He organized the 1911 San Sebastian master tournament and insisted that all the masters' expenses were paid. This was the first international tournament of José Raúl Capablanca, who surprised everyone by winning. When FIDE first awarded the grandmaster title in 1950, Mieses was one of the 27 original recipients.    SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Mieses
