Paul Keres January 7, 1916 – June 5, 1975 was an Estonian chess grandmaster and chess author. Keres was among the world’s top players from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s during which he narrowly missed a chance at a world championship match on five occasions. Keres won the 1938 AVRO tournament, which led to negotiations for a title match against champion Alexander Alekhine. But, due to WWII the match never took place.
