  Phony Benoni: <Chessdreamer> I've sent in a correction slip. When the change is made, the charts above will be updated accordingly.
Dec-10-12  USSR Championships: <Chessdreamer> wonderful catch!

The crosstable from Andris Fride's biography of Petrovs confirms your correction as well.

<Phony Benoni> thanks, fast work on sending in the slip. Let's keep track to make sure they make the correction.

Dec-10-12  USSR Championships: Excerpt from the memoirs of <Galina Petrovs>, <Vladimirs Petrovs'> wife:

"The tournament directors only had one prize to give because they had expected <Alekhine> to win. Since there were three winners, <Flohr> suggested to <Reshevsky> "Sammy, let's let <Petrov> take the rap for us." In this way, <Petrovs> was awarded the victory prize. He also won a silver cup for the "Most Brilliant Game by a Latvian against a Foreigner" for his match against <Rellstab>: Rellstab vs V Petrov, 1937
