Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-13  Karpova: Soerabaia, 1926 (possibly April):

1. Baay 4.0
2. Bleykmanns* 3.0
3-5. Latif 2.5
3-5. Panei 2.5
3-5. Kostjoerin 2.5
6. De Bock 2.0
7. Weiß 1.0

From page 189 of the June 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

* Dirk Bleijkmans

Oct-05-13  thomastonk: <Karpova> The tournament has been played in April; WSZ gives April 2-4, and contemporary newspaper sources establish this.

Here you can find the crosstable and one game. Moreover, the winner Baay is called J.G.Baay there, and hence probably this player (there is another strong Dutch chess player E.H.Baay of the V.A.S., who was active in those days, too, and also a C.J.Baay).

Moreover, this source supports that Bleykmans was indeed Dirk Bleijkmans.

Oct-06-13  Karpova: <thomastonk:>

Thanks for the link which allows for a correction of the crosstable I gave above*:

1. J G Baay 4.0
2. Bleykmans 3.0
3-4. Kostjoerin 2.5
3-4. Latifpanei 2.5
5. H C de Bock 2.0
6. Weiss 1.0

* in 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung', the name is written <Latif Panei>, so I thought he was two players.

<thomastonk: WSZ gives April 2-4>

Indeed, but I was a bit reluctant as it says <Vom 2. bis 4. April tagte hier der Niederländisch-Indische Schachbund> and the tournament may have taken longer than the conference. But maybe they played more games per day (5 rounds in 3 days).

Oct-06-13  thomastonk: <Karpova: I was a bit reluctant > That's always a good idea, I think.

I've seen yesterday two reports, one stating that the first round has been played on Friday, and the other one stating that the last round has been played on April 4. So, if the tournament becomes more important, I will search them again.
