Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-10-14  Karpova: Prizes: Weiss 1,000; Bauer 700; Fleissig 500; Englisch 400; Csank 300; Marco and Schwarz shared 200+100.

Prior to the start of the tournament, Leopold Trebitsch bet that Weiss would not lose a single game.

After a good start, Bauer became ill and had a hard time outflanking Fleissig to reach 2nd place.

Regarding the Intro <The game-score for Englisch - Marco, round 6, is the only one missing from the tournament book.>, my source says that Englisch was prevented from playing one game against Marco (<Es muss aber berücksichtigt werden, dass Herr Englisch verhindert war, eine Partie gegen Marco zu spielen [...].>) meaning that the game was never played and Marco won on forfeit (the cross table on p. 148 gives <0 1> for Englisch versus Marco, unlike Holwarth who withdrew and whose games afterwards were shown as <..>, perhaps because the games didn't count towards the final standings.).

One of Csank's games lasted 3 days. Furthermore, he had won 3 games against players who withdrew from the tournament, so that these wins didn't count.

They believe that Jacques Schwarz underestimates his opponents often, and that's why he scored only 6 points.
