Aug-03-13  Karpova: He* shared 1st place at the Munich Master Tournament (May-12 to May-20, 1926) where the six strongest masters of Munich, Germany, competed.

1-2. Gebhard 4.0
1-2. Ludwig Schmitt 4.0
3. Laubmann 3.0
4-5. Springe 2.0
4-5. Stiegler 2.0
6. Benzinger

Gebhard scored +3 =2 -0

Prizes (Mark): 1st 100, 2nd 60, 3rd 40
It's not explicitly stated but I guess that Gebhard and Schmitt shared the prizes and each got 80 Mark.

Source: Page 177 of the 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

The game against Spielmann is from the strong Munich Christmas 6-player Tournament (Dec-26 to Dec-31, 1926):

1. Przepiorka 4.5
2. Bogoljubov 3.5
3. Spielmann 3.0
4. Saemisch 2.5
5. Gebhard 1.0
6. Schmitt 0.5

Prizes (Mark): 1st 400, 2nd 300, 3rd 200 and 4th 100

Gebhard scored +1 =0 -4

Source: Page 5 of the 1927 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

* Even the 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung' is not consistent in the spelling of Gebhard(t)'s name.

Aug-03-13  Karpova: The 1927 Munich Master Tournament ended with a shared 1st place:

1-2. Gebhard 9.0
1-2. Schindler 9.0
3-4. Huber 6.5
3-4. Burger 6.5
5. Otto 6.0
6. Springe 5.5

There were more players but they just gave the prize winners.

Oct-11-13  Karpova: Munich City Championship 1925 (probably January to February):

1-2. Gebhard*
1-2. Dr. Kraußold*
3. Benzinger 8.5
4. Springe** 7.0
5. Otto 6.5
6. Laubmann 6.0

There will be a tie-break between Gebhardt and Dr. Kraußold (didn't find out how it ended so far).

* it says <8 u. 11> (?)

** W Springe

  Telemus: Damn, why is his name wrong?

Jun-28-23  Alan McGowan: Help wanted.

Feenstra Kuiper (FK), in his book about chess matches 1851-1950, shows 1930 matches at Warna (Varna, Bulgaria) by K. Atanasov (1901-1936) against two Munich players, H. Gebhard and J. Schindler.

Some of FK's listings are known to be suspect (see Walter Jurgschat when research by <Chessist> proved very helpful).

There is no mention of these matches in the Deutsche Schachzeitung or Deutsche Schachblätter, and no references to Atanasov/Warna.

Perhaps <Chessist> can help here, too.

  Stonehenge: At least Atanasov had a connection to Munich:

<One of the most prominent representative of this style is Kseni Atanasov (1901-1936). The native of Varna got acquainted with the game of chess from early childhood, but, like Trayanov, he developed his talent as a student abroad, studying commerce in Munich. After returning to his hometown his experience allows him to established himself as one of the strongest Bulgarian chess players.>


Jun-28-23  Alan McGowan: Thank you <Stonehenge>. I would not have found those references!

Atanasov's matches against Gebhard and Schindler were played in Munich. He was also a participant in the Munich-Vienna city match in November 1930.
