Ostend (1906) – 9-RR2 viewpoint – preliminary version

Continuing my tradition of skipping around, let’s go to the final standing of the tournament. Actually, let’s consider an interesting sideview, where we present the xtab for the tournament if viewed as a double round robin between the final nine qualifiers. In essence, this is indeed what resulted from the elimination rounds, provided the result against non-finalists are discounted.

In other words, here is how the finalists match up, going head-to-head:

One could say that Teichmann lost out the most in the prizes with the actual scoring/placement done in Ostend (1906). Perhaps Teichmann’s play against lesser opponents wasn’t aggressive enough? Maybe I can pick this idea up when I present the “Stage 5 (all)” results.  Rubinstein, on the other hand, benefited from the official scoring.
