Event data
Name: 25th German Chess Federation Congress - Hauptturnier B Siegergruppe
Place: Magdeburg
Start date: 17 July 1927
End date: 31 July 1927
 
Notes:
Gaige and Di Felice say only that Babel beat Schindler in the final. I assume a score of 1-0 for Babel. Gaige and Di Felice have 'Herrmann' at this event without initials. In the Deutsche Schachzeitung of Aug. 1927 (p.233), he is referred to as 'Herrmann-Magdeburg'. In other places (such as the Deutsche Schachzeitung of Apr. 1932, p.99), 'F. Herrmann' is indicated as being from Magdeburg, so it is likely that the player at Magdeburg 1927 was F. Herrmann.
