Mannheim (1914)

The 19th Congress of The German Chess Federation in Mannheim, July - August 1914, did not finish due to the outbreak of World War I. The master tournament was discontinued after Round 11, and part of the prize money was awarded according to the scores after that round.

No tournament book appeared at the time. In 1964, 50 years after the event, the librarian of the Mannheimer Schachklub 1865 Werner Lauterbach edited one with all the games he could find in games collections, newspapers and magazines. Five games, unfortunately, seem to have been lost forever.

The missing games are (R.1) Vidmar vs Janowski 1-0; (R.2) Fahrni vs Tartakower 1/2-1/2; (R.6) Reti vs Spielmann 1/2-1/2; (R.7) Krüger vs Fahrni 1/2-1/2 and (R.11) Breyer vs Reti 1/2-1/2.

In Hauptturnier B, Siegergruppe B, "Jürgens" is
Heinrich Wagner and "Behrend" is Kurt Pahl. Information from Lauterbach's 1964 tournament book.
