Debrecen 1925
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

The tournament was held in Debrecen, Hungary from August 9-24, 1925, with the following players.

Lajos Asztalos, Ernst Gruenfeld, Kornel Havasi, Paul Johner, Hans Kmoch, Hermanis Mattison, Geza Nagy, Ladislav Prokes, David Przepiorka, Jakob Adolf Seitz, Lajos Steiner, Savielly Tartakower, Arpad Vajda, Vladimir Vukovic

Chessmetrics estimates this as a Category 11 tournament with an average rating of 2508.

Hans Kmoch had one of his finest results, winning with a margin of 1 1/2 points. He and Geza Nagy were the front-runners at the halfway mark with 4.5/6. Both lost in round 7, and drew in round 13. In between, Kmoch won five in a row while Nagy lost an additional five in a row!

And Kmoch needed those wins. Johner had taken the lead in round 7, and stayed ahead until a draw with Gruenfeld and loss to Tartakower allowed Kmoch to coast home in the last round.

A noteworthy happening was the congestion in the lower ranks, as only five of the 14 players could finish over 50%.
