Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Buenos Aires (Konex) (1979)
The event was sponsored by Luis Ovsejevich and his Konex-Canon Company (since 1980: Konex Foundation*), and is also known as the 2nd Konex Tournament. It came after the Buenos Aires olympiad in October-November (1978) and the following Buenos Aires (Clarin) (1978) tournament. Later in the year it was followed by Buenos Aires (Clarin) (1979).

The russians boycotted# the tournament because Korchnoi was invited. Playing time was 5-10 pm with five games a week. Saturdays and Sundays were free days or days for adjourned games. Play was governed by a limit of 40 moves in two and a half hours and 16 moves per hour thereafter. Due to other obligations, Korchnoi played his last two games in advance, on 21 and 27 July. When the game Miles vs Ljubojevic, 1979 in round 12 ended in a draw, the tournament had two joint winners before round 13 started.

Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina, 12-30 July 1979
