  Gypsy: <A tournament player from Holland; at one point, he was the champion of the island Java.> From Duras monograph by Louma+Co.

A player with interesting results who, it seems, played well "up". In 1905, he played in Sheveningen Mixed and in Barmen Main tournaments. In Sheveningen, Bleijkmans finished only 11th of the 14 participants, but defeated the two winners -- Marhall (1.) and Leussen (2.). In Barmen Main, Bleijkmans finnished quite respectable 6th of the 16 participants, and scored a victory over Rubinstein (tied for 1-2. with Duras), as well as draws with Vidmar(4.) and E. Cohn (5.).

It seems that Bleijkmans was capable of causing troubles to anybody.

Yes, I don't what company he worked for, or maybe the government, but he was still there in 1933 and played Alekhine in a simul in Batavia.
