Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Parnu (1937)

The city of Pärnu, Estonia 1 held its first ever international tournament from July 16-25, 1937. Four masters and national champions from Europe were invited to compete against Estonia's native sons Paul Keres, Paul Schmidt, Ilmar Raud and Feliks Villard. Schmidt all but ran away with the tournament, being felled only by Ståhlberg, but clearly establishing the strength of Estonia and her chess masters as a future international figure in world chess.

  nimh: Lol, that's three years too early, as Soviet occupation de iure did not begin until June 17th 1940.
