Paul Keres was born in Narva, Estonia January 7, 1916 and died June 5, 1975. From the 1930s to the 1970s he was one of the world's best players. After winning the AVRO tournament in 1938 he was to play Alexander Alekhine for the world championship. In 1939, World War II began and the match never took place. Keres played in the 1948 World Championship tournament and finished third. Later, he played in six Candidates' tournaments. He came in second in four of these. Keres has been described as the best player who was never world champion. The following game brought Keres international attention. Keres played in the Olympiad for Estonia against William Winter (1898-1955), the British champion.
