timnz, I don't know too much, alas.

The 1936 Paris World Championship was held in August (no exact date). Nüsslein beat Tilden in SF and Cochet (in straight sets) in final. The schedule was made probably to push Cochet into the final. I do know that Plaa, Ramillon and A. Burke participated.

If I remember well, Tilden betted before the tournament that Cochet would win.
