In 1936, the DSB Kongress organized a training tournament to be held in Dresden, Germany from June 7th to the 14th. Four German national chess players were pitted against six European masters, including the former world champion. Alekhine triumphed, though not with the usual dominance that might have been expected. This victory was one of many he earned in his interim between world titles to assert himself as the world's strongest player and eventually earn a rematch with Max Euwe. Alexander Alekhine first (+5 =3 -1) with Ludwig Engels (+4 =4 -1) second and the only competitor to defeat Alekhine. Geza Maroczy and Gideon Stahlberg shared third and fourth (+4 =3 -2) with an identical score. Efim Bogoljubov (+4 =2 -3) was clear fifth. Rodl and Smaisch each with +4 1/2 shared sixth and seventh. Keres tying Helling was a disappointment with a share of eight and ninth. Grob brought up the end with his only draw and against Engles preventing him form tying with Alekhine.
