Vladimirs Petrovs Chess Biography
Compiled by jessicafischerqueen
--*--

This is a representative sample of many of Vladimir Petrov's best games over his career, arranged chronologically by event. He scored 50% from both Alexander Alekhine and Jose Raul Capablanca, with a victory over Alekhine at Margate (1938). Many of Petrov's best games have not yet been added to the database, notably his brilliancy against Savielly Tartakower at the Buenos Aires 1939 Olympiad, and his win from round one in a 1934 match against Rudolf Spielmann. I am currently compiling a list of about thirty new games to submit to the database. Many of them will eventually make their way into this collection.
