Vladimirs Petrovs Tournaments/Matches 1923-1942
Compiled by jessicafischerqueen
--*--

This list was researched and compiled by Nechemia Kasimov (User: hemy) and <jessicafischerqueen>. It was <hemy> who discovered and supplied the vast bulk of information deriving from contemporaneous magazine and newspaper sources. Several other cg.com colleagues also contributed some of this research from contemporaneous sources.

This is not a complete list of every event Vladimir Petrov played in, but it covers all of his major tournaments and matches. The list spans a relatively short period from 1922 to 1942 because Petrov was arrested by the NKVD and died in a Soviet gulag in 1943. Still, he managed to win the Latvian Championship four times and won several international events, most notably Kemeri (1937). After the Russian annexation of Latvia in 1940, Petrov played only in Soviet tournaments and began to post more consistent results- results strong enough to suggest that this was a chess master who had been cut down in his prime.
