[what is this?]

Paulette Schwartzmann was a Latvian–French–Argentine chess player.

Born in Riga, she emigrated to France. Schwartzmann won the French Championship on seven occasions (1927, 1928, 1929, 1931, 1933, 1935, and 1938), although she was awarded the title only three times. She became a French citizen in 1933.

She played twice in the Women's World Chess Championship. In 1933, she took 6th at Folkestone (4th WW-ch; Vera Menchik won). In 1939, she tied for 9-10th at Buenos Aires (7th WW-ch; Vera Menchik–Stevenson won).

In September 1939, when World War II broke out, Schwartzmann, along with many other participants of the 8th Chess Olympiad had decided to stay permanently in Argentina. She was Argentine Women's Champion in 1948/1953.

Sep-02-08  wrap99: Wikipedia says that Paulette Schwartzman was born in 1910 and there is no death date. It also mentions she won the French championship, not specifying if it was the Women's.

  GrahamClayton: I presume that Schwartzmann was not awarded the title of French women's champion in 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1931 because she was not a French citizen?
Oct-06-13  Karpova: In 1926, she came in 2nd out of 12 players at the French Women's Championship. J. Frigard (the defending Champion) won, Bastin (Champion of Belgium) came in 3rd.

From page 221 of the July 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

Oct-12-13  Karpova: In the recently finished French Women's Championship of 1925, Paulette Schwarzmann came in 1st, yet the 2nd prize winner Frigaro* became French Women's Champion as the winner was of Russian nationality.

From page 217 of the July 1925 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

* see my post above of October 6, where she is called <J Frigard>.

  Fusilli: She won the French women's championship seven times and the Argentine women's championship four times. Too bad there are so few games of her.
Nov-19-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Paulette Schwartzman.
