|Sep-14-08|| ||sneaky pete: Hallégua (Paris) won the Hauptturnier A at the 19th DSB congress, Mannheim 1914, with 8 points from 11 games, ahead of Ilya Leontievich Rabinovich (Vilnius), Oscar Tenner (Berlin), Karl Ahues (Charlottenburg), Lajos Asztalos (Budapest),
Fedor Parfenovich Bohatirchuk (Kiev) en 11 other players. In this 17 man round robin 16 games were scheduled, but outside circumstances interfered. One wonders what became of Hallégua after the tournament.|

It's rather vague (and confusing) about this matter:
"B. Hallegua (born 1880 - died ?) was a <Turkish> chess master."
|Sep-14-08|| ||whiteshark: ...and who is this: O Hallegua?|
|Oct-13-08|| ||percyblakeney: According to Chess Results 1901-20 B. Hallegua only participated in one more tournament apart from the success in Mannheim 1914. That was in Paris the same year, where he finished second in a field of ten players, behind Janowski.|
|Oct-13-08|| ||Calli: Skinner gives another game played by Alekhine against Hallegua after the "Paris Quad". Hallegua lost an exhibition game in 25 moves. Also says that some sources give the name as Alega.|
|Oct-13-08|| ||Calli: Sorry, I didn't click on <Whiteshark's> link. Thats the exhibition game in Skinner. Both games are designated as "B Hallegua".|

Indeed, some well-known names. Here is the crosstable: http://picasaweb.google.com/Caissa1...
|Feb-23-09|| ||whiteshark: <Calli> If you look at the Mannheim 1914, Hauptturnier A crosstable it looks more like <Hallegna>|
|Feb-23-09|| ||sneaky pete: <mhiteshark> It does. People call it a typo.|
|Feb-23-09|| ||whiteshark: My thoughts exactly, <snaeky pete>! :D|
