This was another in the series of Nordic Chess Congresses in which several outside masters were invited in to give the locals some strong practice. The full list included: Alexander Alekhine; Erich Cohn; Fritz Englund; Joel Fridlizius; Johannes Hjalmar Giersing; Hugo W Langborg; Georg Marco; Gustaf Nyholm; Adolf Georg Olland; Victor Sjoberg; Rudolf Spielmann. Alekhine, still just 19, dominated the proceedings despite being upset in the third round by Sweden's Fridlizius. Once he had defeated all the other outside masters (Cohn, Marco, Spielmann), he was not to be stopped. 1 Alexander Alekhine * 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 = 1 1 8.5; 2 Erich Cohn 0 * 1 1 = = 0 1 1 1 1 7.0; 3 Georg Marco 0 0 * 1 0 1 = 1 1 1 1 6.5; 4 Adolf Georg Olland 0 0 0 * 1 1 1 1 = 0 1 5.5; 5 Rudolf Spielmann 0 = 1 0 * 0 1 0 1 1 = 5.0; 6 Hugo W Langborg 0 = 0 0 1 * 1 1 0 0 1 4.5; 7-9 Victor Sjoberg 0 1 = 0 0 0 * 1 1 = 0 4.0; Joel Firdlizius 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 * 0 1 1 4.0; Fritz Englund = 0 0 = 0 1 0 1 * 1 0 4.0; 10 Johannes Hjalmar Giersing 0 0 0 1 0 1 = 0 0 * 1 3.5; 11 Gustaf Nyholm 0 0 0 0 = 0 1 0 1 0 * 2.5
