Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
USSR Championship (1970)

The 38th USSR Championship was held in the city of Riga (located in present day Latvia) from November 25 to December 28, 1970. This event featured 22 of the Soviet Union's strongest masters and grandmasters who were invited to, and qualified for, the main event. The tournament was a tremendous victory for Viktor Korchnoi. He won clear first, a full point and a half ahead of second place Vladimir Tukmakov, finishing with 16 points from 21 games. It was Korchnoi's fourth and final Soviet championship victory, tying him with Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian and Alexander Beliavsky for Soviet titles, and being surpassed only by Mikhail Botvinnik and Mikhail Tal.

  offramp: Korchnoi's last win in the USSR Ch, and a big one. He lost to Gog-Magog but figuratively ran through the rest of the field.

Four years later he waltzed in to a Dutch cop-shop and his whole chessic life turned figuratively upside-down.

  HeMateMe: You know if that guy went out for a run on New Years Eve, Gog-Magog might jog agog with egg nog.

It could happen.

  perfidious: <HMM: You know if that guy went out for a run on New Years Eve, Gog-Magog might jog agog with egg nog.>

Would he take that jog round Lake Memphremagog?

Many years ago, I was in the company of Robert Huntington when we were involved in a minor traffic scrape in Magog, Quebec.
