Germany's Alexander Gassner clinched a second successive World Cup gold by four-hundredths of a second on home ice in Konigsee.
The global bronze medallist, who claimed an emotional maiden win at St Moritz last week, edged out Olympic champion Sungbin Yun with a combined 1:39.88.
Yun settled for silver despite setting a track record in the first heat with 49.90, a prestigious mark at the world's first artificial track.
