  whiteshark: Salme Rootare (* March 22, 1913 1987)

She was 15 <fifteen> times female Estonian Chess Champion.


Apr-24-11  BLarsen1967: The Great Salme Rootare played against Paul Keres at least 3 times. She never beat him. - Here's a game from the Estonian Champ. 1942. Interesting how the b queen gets trapped,I also find it a bit surprising that Keres didnt play 2.e5

[Event "EST-ch"]

[Date "1942.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Keres, Paul"]
