[what is this?]
|Dr. Eduard Dyckhoff was born in Augsburg. He was a German chess club activist and one of the most enthusiastic propagators of correspondence chess. In 1930, he won the Internationaler Fernschachbund (IFSB) world correspondence championship. He took second place in 1929, 1931 and 1936. He died in Bad Tolz, Germany in 1949. In 1954, a giant Dychkhoff Memorial Correspondence Tournament was organized with 1,860 chess players from 33 countries. As many as 8,856 games were played in this event. The event was won by Lothar M Schmid, who later became a grandmaster in correspondence and over-the-board play.|
