  whiteshark: <He was Finnish Champion in 1933.>

The following year (1934) he became second place behind Eero Einar Book

In 1935, 1937 and 1939 he ended as third.

  brankat: There must be a number of Mr.Rasmusson's games missing from this database. Having so many successes in Finnish championships he would have to have more than just 3 wins to his name.

Happy Birthday master Rasmunsson.
