Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
USSR Championship (1965)

The 33rd Soviet Chess Championship was held in the city of Tallinn, Estonia from November 21 to December 24, 1965, featuring twenty of the Soviet Union's strongest players, including reigning champion Viktor Korchnoi. Six seats to the championship were won in USSR semi-final tournaments held earlier in the year: Evgeni Vasiukov and Gennadi Kuzmin qualified from Kaliningrad, Semyon Abramovich Furman and Vladas Mikenas qualified from Leningrad, while Eduard Gufeld and Yuri Nikolaevich Sakharov qualified from Omsk. Korchnoi performed well below expectation, due to losing more games (seven) than he won (six). Leonid Stein, on the other hand, won his second of three career Soviet titles here.

Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-30-12  Kikoman: First!
One of the three USSR Championship of GM Leonid Stein.
Dec-30-12  kia0708: Polugaevsky was pretty strong during that times.
Jun-12-16  EdZelli: Another inaccurate/half-baked and incomplete intro.
'Twenty of the Soviet Union's best masters and grandmasters competed'

How about Thee Very Best (ie. World Champ in 1965). Why isn't his name mentioned?

Because he didn't participate?

Jun-13-16  Howard: Agreed, keypusher.

Besides, the "intro" merely states that twenty of the Soviet Union's best players took part--no effort was made to imply that there were THE top-20.

Spassky, Geller, and Botvinnik, incidentally, weren't there either. So why single out Petrosian?

Nov-27-16  ughaibu: Neither were Tal or Smyslov.
Dec-10-17  ZonszeinP: They were focused on their candidate matches. That was their main event that year
