  vonKrolock: Born Dec 2 1908 in Gral. Pico La Pampa, Argentina. quote <"Entre 1931 y 1948 fue campeón del Club Argentino; compartió junto a R. Grau el primer puesto en el torneo Ciudad de Mar del Plata en 1934, y 2° en un abierto blitz, en el Club Argentino en 1931 detrás del polaco Savielly Tartakower. Finalizó 3° en los campeonatos argentinos en 1933, 1935 y 1936, y fue 4°, en 1937."> Nearing his 101th birthday, he met the <young> Francisco Benko, who is <only> 99

  vonKrolock: At 101, he is still probably the oldest internationally known chess player around.

  vonKrolock: And Zoltan L Sarosy
Sep-08-12  Karpova: At Mar del Plata 1934, he won the South America Championship impressively with 10.5/13 ahead of Grau following closely with 10.0. Then came Guimard, Balparda, Fenoglio and Bolbochan with 8.5 each and Holtey and Piazzini with 7.0, etc.

From page 172 of the 1934 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

  vonKrolock: The arrival online of the complete 1934 and 1936 <Torneios Sulamericanos / Mar del Plata > resp

Furthermore, crosstables of the Argentinian Championships gives a dimension of his importance. - Always near the top!

*** So we have <Aaron Schwartzmann> (Neue Wiener Schachzeitung) 1934 (thnks, <Karpova>, that page corrects also a truncated informacion available before in that castillian page i pasted above!>

*** <Schwartzman> without the second final 'n' (here, brasilbase)

*** <Schvartzman> His personal papers showed by himself in that 2011 video. <Aron>, or <Arón> as in more recent documents.

He joined the legendary <Club Argentino de Ajedrez> in 1923 - <89> years as fellow of a Chess Club - is an amazing record. (Regarded as the last witness of the Capablanca vs Alekhine match in 1927) - But his greatness is not founded mainly in a presencial longevity, but also in his extraordinary strenght and qualities as a Chess player: He beat the legendary Julio Lynch in a match in 1931, became the Club Champion, and kept the title without interruption until 1948.

Jun-19-13  Lovuschka: The sad news has reached me that Schwartzman, the winner of the Championship of South America in Mar del Plata 1934, has died this year on January 15, 2013, at 104 years and a bit over a month.

Unforgotten is his match against Francisco Benkö (not to be confused with Pal Benkö) in 2009, which was linked by <vonKrolock> in the first comment on this page.
