USSR Championship 1968/69
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 36th USSR Championship was held in the city of Alma-Ata (located in present day Kazakhstan) from December 30th, 1968 to February 1st, 1969. Twenty of the Soviet Union's best grandmasters and masters were invited to, and qualified for, the event. The tournament was a second straight victory for Lev Polugaevsky, who had won the 126 player Swiss-style championship the year before alongside Mikhail Tal. Although Tal was present again, it was Alexander Zaitsev who tied with Polugaevsky after the initial event. A six game playoff to determine first place was held after the championship's completion, and Polugaevsky won clear first with 3 points over Zaitsev's 2 points. This win would be Polugaevsky's final Soviet championship title.
