Feb-19-11  mulde: Just a detail: This is Carl Ahues, not Karl ...
More interesting, this was not a team-match "Germany vs Holland or The Netherlands", but a team-match "Berlin vs The Netherlands".
And this match was played by a telegraph, so it is some kind of a corr.-team-match. The Berlin team came together in "Berliner Schachgesellschaft" in the Kantstr.8 with white at board 1, 3, 5, ... The teams were
a.) Berlin: Johner, Gregory, Schories, Schweinburg, v.Hennig, Ahues, Sämisch and Schlage. b.) Netherlands: Marchand, Fontein, van Gelder, Loman, Fick, Oskam, Euwe, Strick van Linschoten. The match had to be cancelled at 23:00 h, when Ahues had already defeteated Oskam, and a few games had been drawn, one of them Sämisch vs Euwe. So game 1 was declared to a win for The Netherlands, and the match ended undecided. It was one of the first comebacks for Germany after the war, and they pointed out to be very lucky about that.

Strange info, this was Germany-The Netherlands, Berlin June 4th and June 5th. Most certainly not played by telegraph.
