Karpova: 8th Congress of the Czechoslovakian Chess Federation in Pardubice, August 5 to 18, 1923.
Championship Tournament (11 rounds):
1. Max Walter 8.0
2. Amos Pokorny 7.5
3. Karl Vanek 7.0
4. Sherry* 6.5
5-7. Sifalda 5.5
5-7. Berger (Brno) 5.5
5-7. Prokes 5.5
Further participants were Dr. Hubert Prochazka, Dr. Tereba, Dr. Vitkovsky (Pseudonym), Schulz and Mikulka.
50% of 11.0 points were necessary to gain the <Meisterwürde>, i. e. to become a master. This was reached by all participants down to place 7.
Max Walter started with 4 consecutive draws (Sherry, Sifalda, Pokorny and Prokes) and then had a winning streak with the sole exception of a loss against Vitkovsky on time (Walter had a winning position). So his overall score was +6 -1 =4. Sherry scored +2 -0 =9.
* Pseudonym, he was from Prague
This game is from the tournament Prokes vs K Vanek, 1923 (although the report has the game ending after 43...Rd4). The game Walter-Vanek may be submitted later.
