  GrahamClayton: Secretary of the Deutscher Schachbund from 1950 to 1967.
Nov-30-11  Antiochus: Outside Germany he is best known for having played the Madrid tournamentin 1943 with the Werhmacht's uniform. This tournament was also the better of his career, Brinckmann was second behind Paul Keres .
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: It seems that the 1920ties/early 1930ties were his best times.
Nov-30-11  Antiochus: Well, saying better_Brinckmann was third after Paul Keres and Juan Manuel Fuentes .Look at here The tournament book was wrote by Alekhine and it is downloadable in google. Try ajedrez Madrid 1943 (only in spanish).
Jan-03-13  ketchuplover: Eventually he got to close to the brink man :)

  MissScarlett: <Such was Capablanca's apparent form that the last words of <Die Weltmeisterschaftkandidaten> (Berlin 1927) by Alfred Brinckmann (p.34) read: "The name of the World Champion for the next decade is Capablanca."> Winter's book on Capablanca.

  hemy: The article about the Berlin 1927 include tournament table in Neue Wiener Schachzeitung, June 1927, pages 169-173.
Jan-03-19  Telemus: <Nosnibor: Where are the tournament games from Berlin 1927 ?> Some databases (365chess, chessbase etc) have four of his games from that event: vs List, Nimzowitsch, Bogoljubow and Enoch, respectively. I have just found the game with Elstner in a newspaper.

When the submission of games is working again, I would like to submit it.

Gilliam published 2018 a booklett: "Berlin May 1927 Bad Homburg 1927". Maybe he has more.
