Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Bugojno (1978)

The small town of Bugojno in central Yugoslavia (now Bosnia) hosted five strong tournaments from 1978 to 1986 (see Game Collection: Bugojno 1980, Game Collection: Bugojno 1982, Game Collection: Bugojno 1984 and Game Collection: Bugojno 1986 for the others). This tournament was the first of the series. It was a Category 14 event that featured players of the old guard like Gligoric, Ivkov and Byrne and pitted them against a younger generation that included Timman, Miles and Huebner. The tournament ran from the 26th of February to the 16th of March and in the sixteen player field, Karpov and Spassky emerged as the joint winners. For Spassky it was a victory to rank alongside wins such as the USSR Championship 1961b (1961), the USSR Zonal (1964) and the Second Piatigorsky Cup (1966). For Karpov, it was an excellent dress rehearsal in his only showing in 1978 before facing Korchnoi in defense of the world title beginning in July.

  GrahamClayton: Was this Grigoric's worst performance in an international tournament?
Jun-25-19  Howard: Keep in mind that the Yugoslavian would have been about 54 at the time--way past his prime. Plus this was an exceptionally tough event !
