Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-21-12  TheFocus: <This may be one of the reasons that no tournament book appeared, and many of the games are apparently lost forever.>

Anthony Gillam has done a book on this tournament. He says he has nearly 80 of the 120 games. I do not believe he has any new games there.

Oct-06-13  LIFE Master AJ: What a shame that some of the games were lost ...
Oct-06-13  LIFE Master AJ: I'll bet Soltis could do a book on this and make it come to life, he is soooo good at that sort of thing!

  MissScarlett: The collection has both Leonhardt-Lowcki games, but there's a third game claiming the title: M Lowcki vs Leonhardt, 1912
Jul-12-16  sneaky pete: Hmmm...

That 3rd Lowcki vs Leonhardt game is a version of
A Aurbach vs Spielmann, 1912
