Eva Regina Magacs & Michael Negele

This biography, in both English and German languages, of Paul Felix Schmidt, a contemporary of Paul Keres, is by his daughter Eva Regina Magacs and German chess writer and player Michael Negele. The participation of Eva Magacs means that many, previously undisclosed details, about her father's life and family have been included in the book, together with some of Schmidt's own recollections of his life and times from his own memoirs.

The book includes many photographs of Schmidt, his family and chess contemporaries (The photographs in the German language section are different from those in the English language section), as well as twelve of his best games with annotations in both English and German.

During the 1930s and 1940s Paul Felix Schmidt was one of the strongest chess players in Europe. He represented his native Estonia in 1937 and 1939 at the Chess Olympiads in Stockholm and Buenos Aires. He was Estonian champion in 1936 and competed on board two for Estonia in the 1937 chess olympiad. He won the Tallinn tournament in 1935 and drew a match with Paul Keres in 1936. He also won the first international tournament at Parnu, in 1937, ahead of Keres and Flohr.

In 1939 he emigrated to Germany and took part in many tournaments there during the war years, competing with Alekhine and Keres. After World War II he moved to the United States, in 1952, where he worked as a scientist.

The book contains the original German language text by Michael Negele and it's English equivalent, translated by co-author Eva Regina Magacs, the daughter of Paul Felix Schmidt. She has also contributed a separate chapter, about her father's life after moving to the U.S.A.
