Dec-21-20  Chessist: There was no "German Youth Championship" in 1941, rather a squad training on the edge of the adult championship.

It looks like the event was both a training camp and a championship tournament. The sources give different statements...

'Sammen med den store Turnering afholdtes en Ungdomsskakuge med Teoriundervisning, Gennemgang af Tysklandsturneringens Partier og en særskilt Turnering, som vandtes af den 14-aarige Rudi Kassel.'

<Der 15 jährige Kassel Jugendmeister>

Gleichzeitig mit der großdeutschen Schachmeisterschaft fand auch ein Jugendturnier mit einigen der befähigsten deutschen Nachwuchspielern statt. Zum Vergleich nahm der Meister von Mecklenburg, Stasierowski (Schwerin) teil. Erfreulicherweise setzte sich der jüngste Teilnehmer, Rudi Kassel (Frankenthal), den bereits vor 3 Jahren Bogoljubow entdeckte, erfolgreich durch. Er siegte mit 6 (aus 7 möglichen Zählern ) ungeschlagen.

<News from Rudi - 'Boy beats Master'>

'Der jetzt 12 jährige Schüler Rudi Kessel aus Frankenthal, ist eine deutsche Schachhoffnung geworden. Er ist ein derartiges Talent, daß sich Großmeister Bogoljubow seiner weiteren Ausbildung angenommen hat.

Wir bringen nachstehend eine hübsche Partie aus dem Winterturnier des Ludwigshafener Schachkkubs in der Rudi Kassel den Pfalzmeister Hugo Hussong besiegte'

https://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/... (Kärntner Volkszeitung, Sa, 29. April 1939)

Hussong dominated the Palatinate championships for more than a decade, between 1925 and 1938, he won eight times the 'Plalzmeister' title.

Good work! - fast and well as we know you, only 'Ludwigshafen <CC> Winter tournament' would be a little more precise.

<Miss Scarlett> I have published the pgn you were asking about now, and you can see it by clicking "view" on the game H Hussong vs Rudolf Kassel, 1939 . It shows all of the autogenerated fields:

[Event "Ludwigshafen CC Winter tournament"]
[Site "Ludwigshafen GER"]
[Date "1939.??.??"]
[EventDate "?"]
[Round "?"]
[Result "0-1"]

[ECO "A00"]
[WhiteElo "?"]
[BlackElo "?"]
[Source "Kärntner Volkszeitung (29.04.1939), p.6"]

[PlyCount "54"]

I see it is choking on the Umlaut though. Anyways as you can see, both ECO and PlyCount are indeed autogenerated.

<1941 Frankenthal.> Rudolf Kassel vs E J Diemer, 1941 published in Skakbladet 1942, p. 21, as a part of match.

Kassel found no more equal opponents in his region. In order to compete with strong masters, he had to play correspondence chess.

E.J. Diemer published in his chess column the following game against Alfred Brinckmann
