Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
USSR Championship (1947)

The 15th Soviet Chess Championship took place in Leningrad from February 2nd to March 8th, 1947. Among those invited to participate were Mikhail Botvinnik, Isaac Boleslavsky, Vasily Smyslov, Salomon Flohr, and Viacheslav Ragozin. Paul Keres, who had returned to Estonia after World War II was also extended an invitation. This was after he had been punished for participating in Nazi tournaments during the war by being denied an invitation to Groningen (1946). Participants for the championship also qualified from the various semifinals held in major Soviet cities. Alexander Tolush, David Bronstein, Grigory Levenfish, and Peter Dubinin qualified from the Leningrad semifinal. Igor Bondarevsky, Andre Lilienthal, Ilia Kan, Mikhail Yudovich Sr., and Vladimir Alatortsev qualified from Moscow. Genrikh Kasparian, Vladimir Makogonov, Anatoly Ufimtsev, Lev Aronin, and Konstantin Klaman qualified from Tiflis. Upon learning that the world championship would not be held in 1947, Botvinnik furiously withdrew from the championship, allowing Boris Goldenov to replace him. Games were reported in Shakhmaty v SSSR. For Keres, the championship would herald his return to the elite, both in his "rehabilition" to the Soviet School, and in his superior performance over the best Soviet grandmasters of the day (excepting Botvinnik). Keres scored an impressive 14/19 to take home the Soviet chess crown.
