|Bad Nauheim (1936)|
In 1936, the bath resort of Bad Nauheim, Germany was host to the second of three international chess tournaments organized over three years. Ten chess masters, including the former world champion Alexander Alekhine and the former world challenger Efim Bogoljubov, were invited to participate in the round robin event. The remaining players included top Yugoslavian chess master Milan Vidmar, Swedish champion Gideon Ståhlberg, the new Estonian champion Paul Keres, the Dutch player Johannes Van den Bosch, and four German chess masters: Karl Ahues, Herbert Heinicke, Ludwig Rellstab, and Gerhard Weissgerber. The tournament was yet another in a series of victories Alekhine collected on his way to the rematch with Max Euwe for the world crown. However, it is notable also as young Keres' first international win, as he tied for first with Alekhine at the final. It signalled his arrival on the international chess scene, upon which he would be one of the world's best players for almost forty years.
