In the last round of the great 1896 Nürnberg tournament, World Champion Emanuel Lasker was beaten by an almost totally unknown player: 23 year old Hungarian Rudolf
Charousek
Rezső Charousek. This was the stunning start to one of the shortest, and most brilliant, careers in all chess history. Charousek proceeded to beat every single strong master of his era and to finish first or second in every tournament he played after Nürnberg. Mikhail Chigorin gave him the appropriate nickname "The New Morphy." Like a comet, Charousek flared across the chess firmament, shone with an incandescent brilliance, and was gone.
