USSR Championship 1957
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 24th Soviet Chess Championship took place in Moscow from January 20th to February 22nd, 1957. The championship was held in a theater attended by hundreds, and followed by radio. The championship was significant due in large part to the debut of Mikhail Tal to international chess attention. His "sacrificial style" made a strong impression not only on the grandmasters at the event but around the world as well. The success of his style of play earned him first place among the very best in the Soviet Union with 14/21 at the final.
