  1. 1 Vladimirs Petrovs Tournaments/Matches 1923-19
    This is not a complete list of every event Vladimir Petrov played in, but it covers all of his major tournaments and matches. The list spans a relatively short period from 1924 to 1942 because Petrov was arrested by the NKVD and died in a Soviet gulag in 1943. Still, he managed to win the Latvian Championship four times and won several international events, most notably Kemeri (1937). After the Russian annexation of Latvia in 1940, Petrov played only in Soviet tournaments and began to post more consistent results- results strong enough to suggest that this was a chess master who had been cut down in his prime.

    Many thanks to User: hemy for contributing much valuable research to this project, including all of the many events sourced to contemporaneous magazines and newspapers.

  3. 1930 - Hamburg Olympiad (Alekhine's Games)
    Compiled and written by TheFocus chessforum

    ####################################

    Alekhine played first board for France in the 3rd Olympiad, played at Hamburg, Germany. This was the first time that a reigning world champion was to play in a Chess Olympiad. The French team finished in 12th place out of the 18 participating countries. Poland, led by Akiva Rubinstein, took first place, with Hungary second, and Germany in third.

    Alekhine won the brilliancy prize for his game against Gideon Ståhlberg (Sweden). He did not win a medal because the medalists played 17 games each.

    Alekhine rested during his scheduled games against the strongest opponents he would have faced, including Flohr, Marshall, Maroczy, Rubinstein, and Sultan Khan.

    In <Alexander Alekhine's Chess Games, 1902-1946>, authors Skinner and Verhoeven speculate on the reason for this behavior:

    "The reason for this was probably due more to his unwillingness to undertake the time and effort required in the absence of any substantial prize money, rather than any fear of meeting those particular opponents."

  4. 1931 - Prague Olympiad (Alekhine's Games)
    Compiled and written by TheFocus chessforum

    The 4th Olympiad took place in Prague, Czechoslovakia with 19 teams competing. Alekhine played on Board one for France in every round, taking no rest days and achieving a score of 10 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss to achieve the highest score on board 1. The loss to Mattison was Alekhine's first loss in serious competition since winning the World Champion's title four years earlier.

    The United States finished in first place, followed by Poland in second place, and Czechoslovakia in third.

  5. 1931 Nice Consultation
    Compiled and written by TheFocus chessforum

    A rather unusual training event was organized by the Cercle Alekhine, a recently founded chess club based in Nice. The world champion Alekhine, and two of the up and coming young stars, Salo Flohr and Gosta Stoltz agreed to participate. These were joined by two local players, Brian Reilly and the Russian emigre L. Monosson, who were both members of the Cercle Alekhine. The event took the form of a consultation tournament of twelve games between the masters, who were partnered in each case by one of the local amateurs. There were three prizes, but only the masters were eligible for these. The first half of the tournament was played in the Palais Mediterranee and the second half in the Cercle Alekhine. The event was easily won by Alekhine, who scored four wins and four draws. Flohr came second with two wins, three draws and three losses and Stoltz third with five draws and three losses. Monosson achieved the best result of the local players by scroing 7½ out of 12 and Reilly achieved 4½ out of 12. A number of the games appeared in various publications annotated by Alekhine himself, as a portend for the future, some were annotated in depth by the young Botvinnik for SHAKHMATNY LISTOK, indicating that the future world champion had already started to make a deep study of the possibility of a match for the world championship some time in the future - <Alexander Alekhine's Chess Games, 1902-1946> by Skinner and Verhoeven.

  9. 1st Latvian SSR Chess Congress
    <Riga 1941> (2-23 March) First Latvian SSR Chess Congress (Masters Tournament) The event name changed because Latvia had become a republic of the USSR, the "Soviet Socialist Republic of Latvia." The Latvian Chess Union no longer existed as an independent body with the power to regulate Latvian chess events. Alexander Koblenz, the winner of the Masters Tournament of this congress, became the first Latvian SSR Chess Champion (Ninth Latvian Chess Champion if you include the winners of the first seven Latvian Chess Congresses and the "standalone" Latvian Chess Championship in 1934). <Petrovs shared 3rd> with V. Indulens, behind A. Koblenz and F. Apsenieks.

    <Voland>

    Ende September 1941 setzte die deutsche Armee zum Sturm auf Moskau an. Die Sowjetunion konzentrierte sich verstärkt auf die Verteidigung der Haupstadt. Es galt, Hitlers Befehl zu durchkreuzen, die “Haupstadt des Bolschewismus” bis Afang November zu erobern, um am 7. November, dem Jahrestag der Oktoberrevolution, auf dem Roten Platz eine akribisch geplante, bombastische Siegeszeremonie seiner Truppen abzunehmen.

    Diese Demütigung mußte um jeden Preis verhindert werden! Sie hätte die moralische Unterminierung der Roten Armee und der Bevölkerung bedeuten können.

    ---

    At the end of September 1941, the German army attacked Moscow. The Soviet Union concentrated more on the defense of the capital. Hitler's order was to overthrow the "capital of Bolshevism" to be conquered by the beginning of November, and on the 7th of November, the anniversary of the October Revolution, a meticulously planned, bombastic victory ceremony of his troops would be held in Red Square.

    This humiliation had to be prevented at all costs! It could have meant the moral undermining of the Red Army and the people.

    ===

    Diese Demütigung mußte um jeden Preis verhindert werden! Sie hätte die moralische Unterminierung der Roten Armee und der Bevölkerung bedeuten können. Aber noch waren die deutschen Truppen an allen Kriegsschauplätzen Europas Sieger geblieben. Großdeutschland im Zenit seiner Kriegseuphorie...

    Als einschneidende Maßnahme zur Verteidigung Moskaus war am 20. Oktober der Ausnahmezustande über die Stadt verhängt worden. Alle einsatzfähigen Kräft wurden an die Moskauer Front befohlen - darunter mehrere erfahrene Schachmeister Moskaus, die in der vorangegangenen Stadtmeisterschaft (1940/41) gesartet waren.

    Noch immer kämpften sich die Deutschen Meter um Meter an die Stadt heran. Zwar schon etwas langsamer und immer mühevoler, aber den Grßen Moskauer Autobahnringschom in Sichtweite und die Außenbezirke der Metropole unter Beschuß nehmend. Es schien, als ob diese gigantische, bislang von keinem aufgehaltene Armee, absichtlich den Vormarsch verzögerte, um Panik in der Bevölkerung auszulösen. welch gewaltige Fehleinschächtzung des deutschen Oberkommandos! Das Gegenteil trat ein: Im ganzen Land, in der ganzen Welt verbreitete sich die Nachricht von der heldenhaften Verteidigung Moskaus, von der Disziplin und Ausdauer seiner Bevölkerung.

    ---

    This humiliation had to be prevented at all costs! It could have meant the moral undermining of the Red Army and the people. But the German troops had still been the victors in all the theaters of war in Europe. Greater Germany was at the zenith of its war euphoria ...

    As a decisive measure for the defense of Moscow, a state of emergency had been imposed on the city on October 20. All operational forces were commanded to move to the Moscow front - including several experienced chess masters of Moscow, who had played in the previous city championship (1940/41).

    The Germans were still struggling to get closer and closer to the city. Although their progress became a bit slower and more laborious, but the Moscow motorway ring was in sight and the outskirts of the metropolis. It seemed as if this gigantic army, hitherto held up by no one, deliberately delayed the advance to cause panic in the population. What a tremendous misapprehension of the German High Command! The opposite occurred: throughout the country, throughout the world, news spread of Moscow's heroic defense, of the discipline and perseverance of its people.   ===

    Mitte November 1941, bereits ene Woche nach der vorausgeträumten Siegesfeier Hitlers in Moskau, wurde der deutsche Vormarsch auf Moskau, wrudeder deutsche Vormarsch auf Moskau zum Stehen gebracht. Das war der deutschen Kriegshyäne seit dem 1. September 1939 nicht widerfahren!

    In der sowjetischen Haupstadt und überall im Land schöpfte man stille Hoffnung. Hier und in den entlegensten Winkeln verbreitete sich verhaltener Stolz. Die faschistische “Wochenschau” indessen erzählte Greuelgeschichten über angeblich schlimmste Zustände in Moskau und dem Hinterland.

    Geben wir einem amerikanischen Journalisten das Wort, der im November 1941 nach Moskau kam, hier ein Jahr blieb und später in New York ein Buch mit seinen Moskauer Erfahrungen unter dem titel “12 Monate, die die Welt veränderten” herausgab.

    ---

    In mid-November 1941, just a week after Hitler's premonition of victory in Moscow, the German advance on Moscow was brought to a halt. That had not happened to the German army since the 1st of September, 1939!

    Silent hope was created in the Soviet capital and throughout the country. Here and in the remotest corners, cautious pride spread. The fascist "newsreel", meanwhile, told atrocity stories about allegedly terrible conditions in Moscow and the hinterland.

    Let's give the floor to an American journalist who came to Moscow in November 1941, stayed here for a year, and later in New York published a book with his Moscow experiences entitled "12 Months That Changed the World."  

    ===

    Larry Lessoir brachte neben Fakten aus dem kulturellen Leben im belagerten Moskau - wie der Inszenierung des Balletts “Das Zauberpferdchen” im Großen Theater, einem neuen Zirkusprogramm und der weiter betriebenen Filmtheater - such das “...und sogar ein traditionaelles Schachturnier findet statt.”

    Im Vorwort zu seinem nach der Stalingrader Schlacht 1943 geschriebenen Buch lesen wir: “Die Deutschen wurden auf Grund dreier Faktoren geschlagen: der überlegenen Militärstrategie, der geographischen Gegebenheiten und der beispiellosen Ergebenheit der sowjetischen Soldaten vor ihrer Heimat... Die unter Paulus’ Kommando zur Wolga vorrückende 6. Armee wurde bei beliebigem Anzug Matt gesetzt”, wie der Journalist in der Schachsprache schrieb.

    ---

    In addition to facts from the cultural life in besieged Moscow - such as the staging of the ballet "The Magic Horse" in the Great Theater, a new circus program and the ongoing movie theater - Larry Lessoir reported "... and even a traditional chess tournament takes place."

    In the preface to his book written after the Stalingrad battle of 1943, we read: "The Germans were defeated on the basis of three factors: the superior military strategy, the geographical conditions and the unprecedented allegiance of the Soviet soldiers to their homeland ... Under Paulus's command the 6th Army advancing to the Volga was put in any suit Matt (was put in checkmate), "as the journalist wrote in the chess language.

    Genau 20 Tage nach der geplatzten Siegesfeier, also am 27. November 1941, begann im Gebäude des Moskauer Sportkomitees die XXI. Moskauer Stadtmeisterschaft. Dieser Wettbewerb hatte eine lange Tradition: im I. Championat 1919/1920 war Alexander Aljechin mit glanzvollen 11. Punkten aus 11 Partien Sieger. Die XX. und letzte Vorkriegsmeisterschaft Moskaus sah Großmeister alexander Kotow als Gewinner.

    Obwohl viele Schachmeister Moskaus aus versheidensten Gründen auf die Teilnahme and der ersten Kriegsmeisterschaft verzichten mußen, brachte ihr Hauptorganisator Wladimir Alatorzew 8 starke Teilnehmer zusammen: die Meister Wassili Panow, Isaak Masel, Wladimir Petrow, Nikolai Subarew und Wladimir Alatorzew, den Meisterkandidaten Jewgeni Sagorjanski sowie die Kategorie-1 Spieler Alexander Lazis und Leonid Schtscherbakow.

    -----------------

    Exactly 20 days after the ruptured victory celebration, ie on November 27, 1941, began in the building of the Moscow Sports Committee, the XXI. Moscow city championship. This competition had a long tradition: in the first championship in 1919/1920 Alexander Alekhine was the winner with 11 points out of 11 games. The XX. and last pre-war championship of Moscow saw grandmaster Alexander Kotow as the winner.

    Although many chess masters of Moscow could not play in the first war championship for the most different reasons, their main organizer Vladimir Alatorzew brought 8 strong participants together: the masters Vasily Panow, Isaac Masel, Vladimir Petrov, Nikolai Subarew and Vladimir Alatorzew, the champion candidate Yevgeny Zagorjanski and the Category 1 players Alexander Lazis and Leonid Shcherbakov.

    ###################################

    Besonders der Lette Petrow war in den 30er Jahren auf internationalem Parkett aktiv und erfolgreich. Bei 7 Olympiastarts von 1928 bis 1939 gehörte er zu den erfolgreichsten Spielern.

    W. Panow bsaßin er Sowjetunion als namhafter Theoretiker, überaus fleißiger Autor und erfolgreicher Praktiker einen guten Ruf. Zweieinhalb Jahrzehnte fürte Panow di Schachspalte der reierungsamtlichen Tageszeitung “Iswestija”, wodurch er eng mit der Hauptstadt verbunden war. Bei allen Starts in den Moskauer Stadtmeisterschaften hatte Panow hohe Ränge belegt. 1950 wurde er “Internationaler Meister der FIDE”.

    I. Masel war als zweimaliger Teilnehmer der UdSSR-Meisterschaften und mehrfacher Starter in den Moskauer Championaten mit guten Plätzen ebenfalls bestens bekannt.

    Meister Subarew hatte die Moskauer Turniere 1925 und 1935 mitorganisiert, war maßgeblicher Aktivist des sowjetischen Schachverbandes, unermüdlicher Funktionär an allen Fronten des königlichen Spieles in der UdSSR und wiederholter Sieger der Moskauer Meisterschaften, an denen er nicht weniger als 17 mal teilnahm. In den 30er/40er Jahren galt Nikolai Subarew als aussichtsreicher Kandidat für den Vorsitz des sowjetischen Schachverbands.

    Der später Großmeister Vladimir Alatorzew erwarb ähnlich Subarew bleibende Verdiesnte um das Sowjetschach, erstritt anfangs in den Leningrader Championaten, später in den Moskauer Meisterschaften hohe Plazierungen, war Teilnehmer am II. Internationalen Moskauer Schachturnier (1935), erkämpfte in Zweikämpfen gegen Lilienthal (1935) und Löwenfisch (1940) gute Resultate und nahm an mehreren UdSSR- Landesmiesterschaften mit ansprechenden Resultaten teil (Vize-Meister 1933).

    ---

    Especially the Latvian Petrov was active and successful on the international stage in the thirties. In 7 Olympic Tournaments from 1928 to 1939 he was one of the most successful players.

    W. Panow has a good reputation in the Soviet Union as a well-known theoretician, extremely diligent author and successful practitioner. For two and a half decades, Panow judged the chess column of the government newspaper "Izvestija", which linked him closely with the capital. Panow had occupied high ranks in all the Moscow City Championship starts. In 1950 he became "International Master of FIDE".

    I. Masel was also well known as a two-time participant of the USSR Championships and multiple starter in the Moscow Championships with good results.

    Master Subarew co-organized the Moscow tournaments in 1925 and 1935, was an authoritative activist of the Soviet Chess Federation, a tireless official on all fronts of the royal game in the USSR and a repeat winner of the Moscow Championships, in which he played no less than 17 times. In the 30s / 40s Nikolai Subarew was considered a promising candidate for the chairmanship of the Soviet Chess Federation.

    The later Grandmaster Vladimir Alatorzew provided similar services to the Soviet chess. He first emerged in the Leningrad championships, later in the Moscow Championships with high placings, was a participant in the II International Moscow Chess Tournament (1935), fought in matches against Lilienthal (1935) and Levenfish (1940)m scored good results and participated in several USSR events with good results (Vice Champion 1933).

    Die XXI. Moskauer Meisterschaft wurde aufgrund der relativ geringen Starterzahl doppelrundig ausgetragen. Nach der Hinrunde führte Petrow mit 6 Punkten aus 7 Begegnungen. Panow ging mit 5.5 aus 7 ebenfalls aussichtsreich in die Rückrunde. Masel hingegen spielte die erste Turnierhälft mit Höhen und Tiefen.

    Der Turnier fand in mehreren Moskauer Zeitungen breites Echo. Gelobt wurde vor allem der Kompromißlose Kampfgeist, weicher zu wenig Remispartien, am allerwenigsten zu Salonremisen führte. Allerdings war diese hohe Resultativität auch auf die Begleitumstäde des Turnieres zurückzuführen: Nebenbelastungen wie Fliegeralarme, ferner Geschützdonner und dumpfe Bombeneinschläge sowie zeitweilliges Umzichen in Luftschutzbunker trugen sicher zur erhöten Fehlerquote bei. Später faßten die Aktiven den einstimmigen Beschluß, bei Alarmen nicht mehr ihren Turnierraum zu verlassen, was erstaunlicherweise “von oben” keinen Widerspruch erfuhr.

    ===

    The XXI. Moscow championship was held double-round due to the relatively low number of starters. After the first round Petrov led with 6 points from 7 games. Panow went with 5.5 out of 7 also promising for the second half. Masel, however, played the first half of the tournament with ups and downs.

    The tournament was widely reported in several Moscow newspapers. Above all, the uncompromising fighting spirit was praised, with few draws or adjourned games. However, this high result rate was also due to the Accompanying circumstances of the tournament: Additional distractions such as air raid alarms, gun thunder and dull bombing and temporary relocations in air raid shelters contributed to an increased error rate. Later the activists took the unanimous decision not to leave their tournament room with alarms, which surprisingly were not contradicted by orders "from above".   n addition, a number of rounds were played at other venues at the invitation of various chess clubs. On several days games could not be played because of various circumstances. So the tournament lasted 42 days ...

    Dann die Wende in der Schlacht vor Moskau- Dezember 1941: War der Feind Ende November Schritt für Schritt zum Stehen gebracht worden, gingen die Verteidiger Moskaus im Dezember zu gezielten Gegenangriffen an einzelnen Frontabschnitten über, durchbrachen endlich auf breiter Front die feindlichen Stellungen vor Moskau und warfen die deutschen Truppen gut 100 Kilimeter zurück.

    Damit verbesserte sich die psychische Verfassung der Bevölkerung, was sich auch im Turnierablauf bemerkbar machte. Vor allem in der Rückrunde zog mehr Ruhe ein. Jetzt lief dr Wettbewerb beinahe wie in alten Zeiten. In der Rückrunde holte Masel zuerst Panow ein. Nach der vorletzten Runde waren Masel und Petrow mit 9.5 Punkten aus 13 Partien gleichauf. Alles hing von der letzten Runde ab, die im “Haus der Schriftsteller” stattfand. Masel hatte gegen Lazis anzutreten und gewann, wägrend Petrow dem wesentlich stärkeren Kontrahenten Alatorzew gegenübersaß. Hier kam es zu folgender Stellung - der mit Weiß spielend Alatorzew brachte seine leichte materielle und positionelle Überlegenheit so zur Geltung:

    ===

    Then the turn in the battle before Moscow- December 1941: If the enemy had been brought to a halt step by step at the end of November, the defenders of Moscow went in December to targeted counterattacks on individual fronts, finally broke through on a broad front, the enemy positions in front of Moscow and the German troops dropped back a good 100 kilos.

    This improved the mental health of the population, which also made itself felt in the tournament process. Especially in the second half drew more peace. Now the competition ran almost like in old times. In the second half, Masel caught up with Panow first. After the penultimate round, Masel and Petrow were equal with 9.5 points from 13 games. Everything depended on the last round that took place in the "House of Writers". Masel had to compete against Lazis and won, while Petrov sat opposite the much stronger opponent Alatorzew. Here it came to the following position - playing with white Alatorzew brought his slight material and positional superiority to advantage:

    and the white peasant strides to transformation. Black gave up. Thus Isaak Masel won the XXI with 10.5 points out of 14 games. Moscow City Championship ahead of Vladimir Petrov (9.5).

    #################################

    Die Moskauer Shachliebhaber hatten doppelten Grund zur Freude: Erstens war es gelungen, das Turnier allen Widrigkeiten zum Trotz abzuschließen, womit es das einzige beendete Turnier des Kriegsjahres 1941 blieb. Zweitens fiel das Ende des Wettkampfes mit der Zerschlagung der deutschen Truppen vor Moskau und ihrem Rückzug zusammen. Die Wende im Krieg schickte allererste Boten voraus...

    ===

    Moscow chess lovers had two reasons to celebrate: First, they had managed to complete the tournament in defiance of all odds, which made it the only finished tournament of 1941 since the start of the war. Secondly, the end of the competition coincided with the destruction of German troops before Moscow and their withdrawal. The turn of the war had sent the very first messengers ahead ...

  15. 2nd Latvian Chess Congress
    <Riga 1926-1927> (23 December-2 January) Second Latvian Chess Congress/Second unofficial Latvian Chess Championship. The Latvian Chess Union did not officially declare the winner of a Latvian Chess Congress masters tournament to be the "Latvian Chess Champion" until the fifth Congress in 1934-1935. In addition, winners of Latvian Chess Congress masters tournaments were not permitted to compete in subsequent Congress masters tournaments until the fifth Congress in 1934, and then in all subsequent Congresses. Informally, most sources will begin counting the Latvian Chess Champions from the winner of the first Latvian Chess Congress- H. Matisons in 1924- but a more historically accurate counting would list the first Latvian Chess Champion as the winner of the Fifth Latvian Chess Congress- F. Apsenieks in 1934-1935.

    In the Second Latvian Chess Congress <Petrovs shared 2nd> with T. Bergs, behind F. Apsenieks.[Fride, pp.3-4; Di Felice, "Chess Results 1921-1930" p.150; Latvijas ڑaha èempionâts; "Rîgas Ziòas", December 23, 1926, p.1; "Libausche Zeitung", January 5, 1927, p.5; https://lv.wikipedia.org/wiki/1926.... ]

  19. 3rd Latvian Chess Congress 1930-1931
    <Riga 1930-1931> The main tournament was held in two groups (20 December 1930-1 January 1931), and the playoff between the winner of each group was held (15-27 January). Third Latvian Chess Congress/Third unofficial Latvian Chess Championship. Game Collection: 3rd Latvian Chess Congress 1930-1931 The Latvian Chess Union did not officially declare the winner of a Latvian Chess Congress masters tournament to be the "Latvian Chess Champion" until the fifth Congress in 1934-1935. In addition, winners of Latvian Chess Congress masters tournaments were not permitted to compete in subsequent Congress masters tournaments until the fifth Congress in 1934, and then in all subsequent Congresses. Informally, most sources will begin counting the Latvian Chess Champions from the winner of the first Latvian Chess Congress- H. Matisons in 1924- but a more historically accurate counting would list the first Latvian Chess Champion as the winner of the Fifth Latvian Chess Congress- F. Apsenieks in 1934-1935.

    In the Third Latvian Chess Congress <Petrovs finished 1st> in group 1 with +13-0=0, then defeated group 2 winner M. Feigins in the championship match +4-1=3. Petrovs was awarded the Latvian Master title.
