Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-23-07  Tomlinsky: It seems Feliks Villard played 6th board for the Estonian team in the 1936 Chess Olympiad. He even managed to notch up quite a respectable score and earned an individual bronze medal even beating Richter playing on the German top board. Paul Keres played top board for the Estonians.

  whiteshark: Feliks Villard's score at Parnu 1937 was +0 -7 =0
scoll down about 75%

  GrahamClayton: Villard was born in 1908, so it seem unlikely that he would still be alive - are there any details as to the time and location of his passing?

  mifralu: <It seems Feliks Villard played 6th board for the Estonian team in the 1936 Chess Olympiad.> Yes!

<He even managed...beating Richter playing on the German top board.>

He played against Emil Richter from Czechoslovakia, not German player Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter

  Tabanus: I can't find his dod.

Wiki: <His last known tournament was Ilmar Raud memorial in Viljandi (1971) where he divided fourth place.> Some Estonian must know more.
