Parnu 1996
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

Parnu, Estonia hosted a Paul Keres Memorial chess tournament from February 2nd to the 13th, 1996. Six grandmasters played double rounds in the category XVII A group. Especially delightful about this event were the high number of Keres inspired defenses and variations among the games played. Short was top dog.
