  Honza Cervenka: Alexander Evenson
Apr-12-05  sneaky pete: "Im Jahre 1919 erhielt man in Moskau die Nachricht vom Tode des jungen und vielversprechenden Meister Alexand. Moissejewitsch Evensson, der von den Truppen des Generals Denikins bei ihrem Rueckzug aus Kiew fuesilliert wurde, da er einerseits als ein verantwortlicher Sowjet-Beamter aufgefasst wurde (Evensson wurde naemlich von den Bolschewisten in seiner Eigenschaft als Jurist zum Dienst herangezogen, wobei er als Untersuchungsrichter des kriegsrevolutionaeren Tribunals fungierte) und so anderseits das Unglueck hatte, ein Jude zu sein."

Alexander von Aljechin, Das Schachleben in Sowjet-Russland, 1921.

  whiteshark: "Da sein Talent sich noch in der Entwicklungsperiode befand, unterliegt es keinem Zweifel, daß es ihm im Falle eines glücklicheren Lebensschicksals beschieden gewesen wäre, einen der ersten Plätze am russischen Schachparnass zu erklettern. Ruhe seiner Asche!"

  Phony Benoni: <Calli> You're kidding me--that's Bogolyubov two spots to the right of Alekhine?

Interesting how AA is trying so hard to dominate the scene. And where's Nimzowitsch?

  Calli: <Phony Benoni> As "Mister Chess" comments below the picture, Nimzowitsch, Znosko-Borowsky, Lebedev and Eliashov are not in the picture, but played in the tournament.

Yes, it is a slim Boggie in the pic. Somewhere I have a close up of him before he became a Doppelbauer. Hardly recognizable. Will try to find it.
