  whiteshark: Megabase is showing a 3rd game from Keller - again with <Barmen D> and <H Keller>. It looks as if only the tournament book could clarify the confusion between B and D-Tournament as well as players first name.

The "B" had 29 players in three sections. The top ten scores went on to the "Hauptturnier B - Final A". The next eight also went on to the "Hauptturnier B - Final B". At least thats how it is labeled in my book (De Felice crosstables).

I don't think that they are right calling it the Barmen "D". Clearly Tartakower was in the "B". He tied Schories in the B "A" final and lost the playoff.
