|Bad Nauheim-Stuttgart-Garmisch (1937)|
Following the organization of Bad Nauheim (1936), a double round robin was organized to be played in three cities from July 18th to the 27th, 1937. Four players were invited to participate, including the world champion Max Euwe, former world champions Alexander Alekhine and Efim Bogoljubov, and German champion Friedrich Sämisch. The first two rounds were played in the bath resort of Bad Nauheim, the third and fourth rounds were played in the city of Stuttgart, and the fifth and final rounds were played in the city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In the two years between world championships, Alekhine had earned a number of victories, but in this instance the world champion held Alekhine off for a tournament win of his own. Despite dropping a game to shared second Bogoljubov (who went on a winning streak in the second half, winning all three of his games), Euwe managed to finish clear first a half point ahead of second, picking up a win against Alekhine in the process. Alekhine would shortly go on to win a rematch for the world championship against Euwe.

|Oct-28-15|| ||offramp: Only two draws in this quadrangular tournament. Admittedly, there were only 12 games.|
Quadrangular... why? Why not rectangular?
This Bad Nauheim-Stuttgart-Garmisch-Partenkirchen Quadrangular tournament covered many miles. It must have had a high rating.
Sämisch, that chess Zelig who flitters in and out of chess history from 1920 right up to 1972, was last. That umlaut probably didn't help.
