  vonKrolock: The name of dutch chess composer Pieter ten Cate (1902-07-28 1996-06-17) comes immediately to mind, but the NicBase identifies this player as <Teun ten Cate, Netherlands, born circa 1915> curious, then he was around 14 years young when S Landau vs T Kate, 1929 was played ?!
Mar-24-10  sneaky pete: <vonKrolock> This is T. ten <K>ate, first name and year of birth unknown to me. So it might be Teun, and he might have been around 14.

The game is from a one day rapid tournament, mostly with local players, hosted by chess club Mercurius, played in Grand Hotel-Restaurant Coomans on Thursday May 9, Ascension Day. Those Landau rooks really did ascend.

Playing hours were from 9 to 12 a.m. and 1 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m.

Experts, group A:
1. S. Landau 3
2. T. ten Kate 1,5
3. J. van IJzendijk 1
4. T. Cnossen 0,5

No other well known names in the other groups, except maybe if names like Chr. Vlagsma and J. van Eybergen, who scored 2 respectively 1,5 in the parallel group C, mean anything to you.
