Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
USSR Championship (1970)
The 38th USSR Championship was played in the city of Riga (located in present day Latvia) from November 25th to December 28th, 1970. 22 of the Soviet Union's best masters and grandmasters 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, at 16 points out of 21 games, earning wins over half the field. It was Korchnoi's fourth and final Soviet championship victory, tying him with Tigran Petrosian and Alexander Beliavsky for Soviet titles, and being surpassed only by Mikhail Botvinnik and Mikhail Tal.
