USSR Championship 1983
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by 50th USSR Championship (1983)

There was no USSR Championship held in 1982 so a special effort was made to make the 50th event held in Moscow from the 2nd to the 28th of April 1983 a representative contest. This tournament was considered to be the strongest held since the 41st Championship of 1973 (See Game Collection: USSR Championship 1973). Kasparov and Smyslov were absent but Karpov was playing in his first final since his victory in 1976 (See Game Collection: USSR Championship 1976). Lerner, Azmaiparashvili, Malaniuk, and Razuvaev were the qualifying winners of the four Otborochny tournaments. Agzamov and Vaganian were promoted to the final as the winners of the 18-player First League which had been held at Telavi, Georgia in December 1982. The field began with the odd number of seventeen players but Tal fell ill with dangerously high blood pressure and was forced to withdraw after the ninth round. In the latter rounds two players had byes.

** Due to illness Tal only played six games with losses to Geller and Lerner and draws with Petrosian, Vaganian and Razuvaev. His Round 8 game with Tukmakov was adjourned after 40 moves and wasn't resumed. It was subsequently annulled with no result. On medical advice he withdrew from the tournament.
