Buenos Aires 1944/1945
Roberto Gabriel Grau was a leading Argentine chess player and writer. He was born in Buenos Aires on March 18 1900 and died in the same city, 44 years old. He was a member of the national team at the London olympiad in 1927 and wrote regularly for Argentine newspapers and chess magazines. He was the author of several books on chess. The tournament was very badly treated in the Argentine chess magazines of the time, with only 2 games given in Caissa and 4 in Enroque!! The tournament appears to have been organised by the Asociacion Metropolitano de Ajedrez and this organisation did report the event in its irregular, nominally monthly, magazine. it printed just 6 games, without notes, a photograph of the players and some background information. The tournament was played from 5th to 29th May 1945. In addition, the leading Argentine player received a gold medal presented by the Asociacion Metropolitano de Ajedrez and $150. There was also a brilliancy prize of $100 (won by Najdorf for his victory over Pelikan). Games were played on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 20.00 in the evening until 01.00 in the morning. The ''Regence'' was a chess club in Buenos Aires. It's tournament was reported in the chess magazine Caissa for may 1944, pages 49-58.
