Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Zaanstreek (1946)

A tournament to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chess Club Zaandam was planned for September 1944, but due to circumstances had to be postponed to June 1946. Travelling in Europe was difficult at the time, and three of the foreign masters were absent when the first round started on June 3. Szabo arrived later that day, and played his first round game on June 9, the only rest day. Cenek Kottnauer and Karel Opocensky were replaced by Kramer and Soultanbeieff, who were scheduled to play in one of the reserve sections.

Most of the games were played in Zaandam, only rounds 4 and 5 in a location in the neighbouring city of Wormerveer. Kottnauer, who arrived on the third day, analysed the games for the tournament book and also played in an extra 6-player event in Zaandam, immediately following the big tournament, with Szabo, Stoltz and three Dutch players (Zaandam (Kottnauer Hexathlon) (1946)).
