Amsterdam IBM 1976
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The grandmaster section of the sixteenth annual IBM international chess tournament was a category X event held at Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 1976. Sixteen grandmasters and top masters were invited to participate in the round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Viktor Korchnoi (2670), Fridrik Olafsson (2550), Aivars Gipslis (2535), Gyula Sax (2530), Gudmundur Sigurjonsson (2530), Bojan Kurajica (2525), Laszlo Szabo (2525), Dragoljub Velimirovic (2525), Borislav Ivkov (2520), Anthony Miles (2510), Jan Hein Donner (2475), Kick Langeweg (2450), Hans Bohm (2425), Ivan Farago (2420), Hans Ree (2420), and Gert Ligterink (2400). While Korchnoi's and Miles' shared victory was newsworthy itself, the real story of the tournament was Korchnoi's defection from the Soviet Union after the tournament's completion. During the award ceremony, Korchnoi asked his colleague and fellow co-winner Miles how to write "asylum" and then surrendered himself to the Dutch embassy the following day. In the wake of Korchnoi's action the Soviet Union responded publicly by boycotting any events in which Korchnoi was invited to take part. This would also add to the incredibly tense atmoshpere in the following two world championships in which Korchnoi would face the Soviet World Champion Anatoli Karpov. Though Korchnoi initially resided in The Netherlands after his defection, he eventually found a home and settled in Switzerland, where he continues to live and play to this day. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Korchnoi 9.5/15 * 1 1 0 1 1 1

2 Miles 9.5/15 * 0 1 1 1 1 1
