He was a member of the Russian Olympic squad and played one match in the main tournament as well as one match in the consolation tournament.

After the Russian Revolution of 1917 he did not accept the Soviet regime. He was recruited by the British investigation service and became a spy. He was sent to Finland, where he tried to struggle against Bolsheviks. After World War II the Soviet counterspionage tried to eliminate him. But he was able to flee to Sweden. He changed his name to Peter Sahlin and remained living in Enköping near Stockholm.
