This event (January-February 1930) marks a peak period in Alekhine's tournament career. Neither before nor after was a tournament of such strength won by a score of 14 out of 15 - in fact, nobody has ever remotely approached this achievement, except Bobby Fischer when he won the US Championship with a perfect score. Alekhine 14, Nomzowitsch, 10 1/2, Rubinstein 10 and Bogoljubow 9 1/2. The other remarkable feature of San Remo was the extraordinary number of profound and beautiful games played not only by the winner but also by a number of his rivals.
Jens Evald Enevoldsen-Elsing (1907-1980) was a Danish chess master born in Copenhagen. Enevoldsen won the Danish Chess Championship five times (1940, 1943, 1947, 1948, and 1960). In 1939 he shared first but lost a playoff, and in 1950 he again shared first but lost a lottery. He took 4th place at the Helsinki 1947 zonal tournament; Eero Böök and Gösta Stoltz shared first place. Enevoldsen played for Denmark eleven times in Chess Olympiads (1933, 1935, 1937, 1939, 1950, 1952, 1956, 1958, 1966, 1970, and 1972). n a 1933 tournament in Copenhagen, the little known Enevoldsen defeats Aron Nimzowitsch, one of the world's leading players, with an overwhelming king's side attack featuring a rare double knight sacrifice.
