Notes:
The official crosstable, as given by Gaige and Di Felice, has 17 players. However, Fiala's book gives round-by-round results including four other players who dropped out early and who's scores were cancelled, namely, Bauer, Schenkein, Degel and Best. It is not entirely clear how many games each played before dropping out, but I include results for the first 4 rounds for Schenkein, and the first 5 rounds for the other three, which are the minimum numbers in each case. Schenkein was still present in round 4, in which he beat Rausch, but he and Degel were definitely out in round 8, when the score between them is given as 0-0. Bauer, Degel and Best were still present in round 5, when they each won their games. In round 6, a win is recorded for Bauer against Degel, so Bauer was still at least nominally present, but Degel may have withdrawn before this round, so it is not certain that this game was played. Best was definitely out by the 9th round, where his score against Degel is recorded as 0-0. Bauer was definitely out by round 14, where his score against Schenkein is recorded as 0-0, but probably he had withdrawn before the 11th round, since it was typical in tournaments at this time for the scores of withdrawn players to be cancelled from the official crosstable only if they played less than half their games.
