About This Item

155+[4 ad] pages with diagrams and tables. Royal octavo (9" x 6") bound in brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5335. First edition.

The Mannheim chess congress 1914 ended after eleven rounds by the outbreak of the Great War. When the disaster had ended, the Deutschen Schachbund dropped its leadership in the organization of international tournaments. The Schachbund gave priority to the preparation of national events. Master tournaments became local occasions. The DSB organised four Hauptturniere in Berlin for 1920. Ehrhardt Post was the manager. A master tournament followed in the same city at the end of that year as a regional initiative by Kagan. The Hauptturnier was won by Friedrich (Fritz) Sämisch with a score of 8 with no losses; second was Wilhelm Schönmann. These games are annotated by Ehrhardt Post who finished ahead of Sämisch in Hamburg, 1921.


Some age toning to pages else a very good copy.
