  2. Mexico City 1932
    October, 1932. The first International Tournament celebrated in Mexico.

    With the Great Depression at its height, it was a year of few major competitions. This is one of the least remembered tournaments of the 20th century and a "forgettable" event for the Mexicans, who failed to win a game against the two foreign stars. Organized by Cap. Araiza Munoz, a military man and 3rd place finisher, he would have loved to include the participation of Mexico's premier player, Carlos Torre, but that man had been retired due to a mental illness. However, the event left a deep imprint in the enthusiasts of that time and did much for the interest of the game in that country. This led to the organization of a second tournament held in 1934/35 won by Reuben Fine. It is a pity that only a handful of games from that event have survived.

    Round-robin, 9 rounds. Won by World Champion A. Alekhine (8.5/9) and I. Kashdan (8.5/9), their individual encounter in round 6 was drawn*

    Final Standings
    I. Kashdan (USA) 8.5
    A. Alekhine (USSR) 8.5
    Capt. Araiza Munoz (MEX) 6.0
