[what is this?]
|Augusts Strautmanis was born on July 11, 1907 in Riga. He studied at Riga City Gymnasium and afterwards in University of Latvia. After graduating, he became a professional advocate. He was interested in chess-playing starting from his early childhood when he was taught by his father. He participated in the Chess Olympiad in 1928 in Hague, where Latvia as an independent state participated for the first time. Young Augusts played at the second table and won a half of the games. In 1936, he married and had a large family of four children, but this happy life was destroyed by Soviet occupation and World War II. Augusts did not play serious chess again until in the post war chess championships of Soviet Latvia where he gained good results: in 1946, the second place; in 1948, he became a champion of Latvia; and in 1949, he tied for third place. He actively participated in championships of Soviet Latvia and trained the youth section of chess-players thus encouraging the development of the next Latvian chess player generation.|
