Bugojno 1978
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by Bugojno (1978)

The small town of Bugojno in central Yugoslavia ( now Bosnia ) hosted five strong tournaments between 1978 and 1986. ( See Game Collection: Bugojno 1980 , Game Collection: Bugojno 1982 , Game Collection: Bugojno 1984 and Game Collection: Bugojno 1986 for the others ). However, this tournament was the first one. It was a category 14 event that featured players of the old guard like Gligoric, Ivkov and Byrne and pitted them against a younger generation that included Timman, Miles and Huebner. The tournament ran from the 26th of February to the 16th of March and in the sixteen player field Karpov and Spassky emerged as the joint winners. For Spassky it was a victory to rank alongside wins such as the 29th USSR Championship in 1961, the Zonal Tournament of Seven in Moscow 1964 and the 1966 Piatigorsky Cup. For Karpov it was an excellent dress rehearsal in his only other showing in 1978 before facing Korchnoi to defend the World Title in July.
