Berlin 1920
Compiled by sneaky pete
--*--

This tournament, organized (and partly sponsored) by chess publisher Bernhard Kagan, was held in December 1920 in the Kerkaupalast in Berlin. Its owner, Herr König (Mr. King), supplied the playing hall for free and also donated a large sum to the prize fund. Playing hours were from 2 PM to 8.30 PM, with half an hour rest after the first time control.

The surprising winner was the original and undaunted Gyula Breyer, whose "type of play predestines to both successses and failures", as the Deutsche Schachzeitung wrote on this occasion.

Striking is the small number of draws. I could try to explain that, but (fortunately for you) I won't.
