Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-02-14  Karpova: This is possibly Josef Dominik from Cracow, who was mostly known in Polish Chess circles until he came in 2nd in the <Siegergruppe> of the <Hauptturnier B> in Mannheim 1914 *. In 1915, he was 21 years old.

In March 1915, a 4-player double round-robin tournament took place in the Vienna Chess Club. This tournament had been suggested by <Adman Zuk Ritter von Skarsczewski>, who had been president of the Cracow Chess Club for many years and was the founder and editor of the 'Sachista polski'. He also provided most of the money for the prize fund.

1. Dominik 4.0
2-3. Josef Krejcik 3.0
2-3. von Morawski 3.0
4. Richard Reti 2.0

Dominik vs Krejcik +2 -0
Dominik vs von Morawski +1 -1
Dominik vs Reti +1 -1
Krejcik vs von Morawski +1 -1
Krejcik vs Reti +2 -0
von Morawski vs Reti +1 -1

It's notable, that 100% of the games were decisive. Dominik started out with 2 losses, and then won every single game. After 4 rounds, all players had 2.0 points each. <k. k. Oberfinanzrat Kalixt Ritter von Morawski (Brody)> was suffering from the flu, yet managed to beat every opponent once. Krejcik started strongly and seemed destined for 1st place, but then got weaker at the end. Reti's disappointing performance is explained by his depression after a lost match against Dr. Kaufmann shortly before the tournament
