On occasion of the 60th birthday of Bernhard Kagan, the "Freie Schachvereinigung Berlin" arranged a small tournament with 10 participants. The field was noticeably strengthened by the participation of Efim Bogoljubov, who had returned to Germany after a two years stay in Russia, and also Rudolf Spielmann. The favorite Bogoljubov won in the end, despite a bad start with a loss to Ernst Gruenfeld in round 2. Spielmann disappointed a little. The tournament was sponsored by Viktor Tietz.

Berlin, Germany, 17-26 November 1926
