Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Dresden (1936)

In 1936, the DSB Kongress organized a training tournament to be held in Dresden, Germany from June 7-14. Four German players were pitted against six European masters, including the former world champion. Alekhine triumphed, though not with the usual dominance that might have been expected. This victory was one of many he earned in his interim between world titles to assert himself as the world's strongest player and eventually earn a rematch with Max Euwe.

The final standings and crosstable:
