Alfred Brinckmann was awarded the IM title in 1953. Apart from winning 1st place at Berlin in 1927 his tournament results were fairly modest. However, he is best remembered for his work as an author. He wrote the tournament books of Bad Niendorf 1927, Rogaska Slatina 1929 and Aachen 1934 and biographical works on Efim Bogoljubov, Siegbert Tarrasch and Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter.

Nov-30-11  Antiochus: Outside Germany he is best known for having played the Madrid tournamentin 1943 with the Werhmacht's uniform. This tournament was also the better of his career, Brinckmann was second behind Paul Keres .
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: It seems that the 1920ties/early 1930ties were his best times.
Nov-30-11  Antiochus: Well, saying better_Brinckmann was third after Paul Keres and Juan Manuel Fuentes .Look at here The tournament book was wrote by Alekhine and it is downloadable in google. Try ajedrez Madrid 1943 (only in spanish).

  MissScarlett: <Such was Capablanca's apparent form that the last words of <Die Weltmeisterschaftkandidaten> (Berlin 1927) by Alfred Brinckmann (p.34) read: "The name of the World Champion for the next decade is Capablanca."> Winter's book on Capablanca.
Jan-03-16  TheFocus: Happy Birthday! Thanks for the tournament books.

Jan-03-19  Telemus: <Nosnibor: Where are the tournament games from Berlin 1927 ?> Some databases (365chess, chessbase etc) have four of his games from that event: vs List, Nimzowitsch, Bogoljubow and Enoch, respectively. I have just found the game with Elstner in a newspaper.

When the submission of games is working again, I would like to submit it.

Gilliam published 2018 a booklett: "Berlin May 1927 Bad Homburg 1927". Maybe he has more.
