Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Munich (1941)

The second Europaturnier (the first one took place in Stuttgart in May 1939) was held in Munich in 8-21* September 1941. The event was organised by Alfred Ehrhardt Post, the Chief Executive of Grossdeutscher Schachbund. *(Skinner & Verhoeven list the tournament as lasting from the 8th to the 21st of September. Round 15 was played on the 20th. "The tournament started on the 8 September and was played according to a very punishing schedule. There were no rest days, and it was necessary on two days to play two rounds per day.")

The event was won by Gösta Stoltz, who scored a spectacular victory (1˝ points ahead of Alekhine and Erik Lundin), and won 1,000 Reichsmarks. His trophy (donated by the Ministerpräsident Ludwig Siebert) of Meissen porcelain is worth close to $1,000. (Source: wiki)
