Rosario 1939
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

The tournament was held in Rosario, Argentina, immediately after the 8th Chess Olympiad in Buenos Aires, which was held from August 21 to September 19, 1939. Rosario is the largest city in the Santa Fé province, and has a population of over one million. It is 300 km NW of Buenos Aires on the Parana River with a good link to the capital. The 1939 tournament was played at the Club Espanol in the city and was organised by the Federación Santafecina de Ajedrez.

Petrov secured the win with a draw vs Eliskases in round 6. The top finishers came straight from the olympiad where Petrov had scored +8 -0 =11 for Latvia, Eliskases +7 -2 =5 for Germany and Mikenas +10 -5 =4 for Lithuania. After Rosario, Petrov and Mikenas went back to Europe but Eliskases stayed in Argentina the rest of his life. The remaining five players were from Rosario.
