About This Item

87 pages with illustration, tables and diagrams. Octavo (9" x 6 1/2") bound in original publisher's pictorial wrappers. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5601). First edition.

The Torneo Internacional Circulo de Ajedrez was held in Buenos Aires, immediately after the 8th Chess Olympiad, which was held from August 21 to September 19, 1939. The tournament was played between 2nd and 19th of October 1939 at the Circulo de Ajedrez, the main chess club in the city. Play took place at the club's long-time premises at Bartolome Mitre 670, with rounds starting at 8:30 in the evening. All participants, except Paul Keres, had decided to stay in Argentina due to outbreak of World War II. Miguel Najdorf and Paul Keres tied for first with 8 1/2; Gideon Stahlberg and Moshe Czerniak tied for second through fourth with scores of 7 each. Fifth through six was a tie by Paulino Frydman and Carlos Guimard. Robert Grau held seventh place by himself. The other participants were Markas Luckis, Jose Gerschman, Franscio Benko, Sonja Graf and Luis Palau.
