In September 1939, the Buenos Aires Olympiad was over and World War 2 was in progress in Europe. Some players had hurried home after the Olympiad but many others were still in Argentina. Some were destined to stay in the country for the remainder of the war years, and some for the rest of their lives. The Argentine chess organisers were quick to organise events for them and this book presents and this book presents the first two important ones.
Rosario is the largest city in the province of Santa Fe, and today it has a population of nearly one million (with suburbs and satellite towns, 1.2 million). It is 300 km north west of Buenos Aires on the Parana River with a good rapid link to the capital. it is Argentina's main exporting port with a deep water harbour. The 1939 tournament was played between September 21st and 28th at the Club Espanol in the city and was organised by the Federacion Santafecina de Ajedrez. The tournament in Buenos Aires was played between October 2nd and 19th at the Circulo de Ajedrez, the main chess club in the city. Play took place at the club's long-time premises at Bartolomé Mitre 670, with rounds starting at 20.30 hours in the evening. Keres returned to Europe soon after the tournament ended. At the end of the war Czerniak returned to Palestine and Stahlberg returned to Sweden in 1948. Sonia Graf went to live in the USA but the other foreign players (Frydman, Luckis) remained in Argentina. There was a book of this tournament, now difficult to obtain, written by Czerniak and not published until the end of 1945. Where the annotations refer to 'in my opinion' and similar, it was Czerniak who was writing.
I am grateful to Juan Morgado of Buenos Aires for annotating the games from Rosario and for sending me the scans of many newspaper reports of both events and to Eduardo Merecere Bauza of New York for supplying me with the games of both tournaments in electronic format.
