Notes:
I wonder if it was actually P.A. Romanovsky who played in this event, since in other events in the same year he did much better, in particular far outperforming the three players who tied for first here. Without further information, I will assume that the result is correct as given by Di Felice. I also wonder about the identity of Kalinin, since Alexander Konstantinovich Kalinin was born late in 1914 and was thus was still 15 when this tournament started. I assume this also is a correct identification, and that this Kalinin also played in Leningrad as early as 1924, at the age of 9 or 10.
