[what is this?]
|Born in Hudiksvall, Sweden, Rask's passion for chess drew him to Stockholm when he was 15. He quickly established himself as one of the top players in the Stockholm Chess Club, making an immediate impact in the winter of 1913-14, mixing it with the masters and taking =3rd in the winter tournament alongside (the soon to be) 7-times Swedish champion Gustaf Nyholm. He won the winter tournament of 1915-16, came 3rd in the Nordic Chess Congress of 1916, and won the Stockholm championship in 1917, defeating the previous winners Nyholm and Egil Jacobsen.|
In 1915, when he was 17, he published a monograph titled Paul Morphy 180 partier (180 games of Paul Morphy).
Rask died of tuberculosis in 1918 at the age of 20.
