--*--

An international chess tournament was organized in the Netherlands' city of Amsterdam from October 10th to the 18th, 1936. Eight chess masters from Europe and the United States, including the world champion, participated in the round robin event. Among the attendees were the Dutch world champion Max Euwe, former world champion Alexander Alekhine, and the new American chess master Reuben Fine. Euwe and Fine finished equal first, with Euwe scoring a win against Alekhine (who was actively campaigning for a rematch) and finishing undefeated, while Fine scored more wins than any other single participant, leaving both at the final with +3. Alekhine followed in clear third by half a point.
