USSR Championship 1971
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 39th Soviet Chess Championship was a category XI event held in the city of Leningrad from September 15th to October 18th, 1971. Thirteen of the USSR's best masters and grandmasters qualified for the round robin tournament from the four Soviet semi-finals held earlier in the year. The qualifiers were (with ELO): Anatoly Lein (2510), Vladimir Savon (2570), and Leonid Shamkovich (2520) from Ivano-Frankovsk; Nikolai Krogius (2575), Karen Grigorian (2430), and Albert Kapengut (2450) from Perm; Anatoli Karpov (2540), Rafael Vaganian (2510), Roman Dzindzichashvili (2480), and Vladimir Karasev from Daugavpils; and Yuri Nikolaevsky (2490), Igor Platonov (2470), and Mark Tseitlin from Novosibirsk. Nine of the Soviet Union's very best players were also invited to complete the field, including (in order of ELO): Lev Polugaevsky (2640), Vasily Smyslov (2620), Mikhail Tal (2620), Efim Geller (2615), Leonid Stein (2605), Mark Taimanov (2600), David Bronstein (2590), Yuri Balashov (2570), and Vladimir Tukmakov (2565). This edition of the championship was witness to an enormous upset as International master Vladimir Savon, who was not even among the top rated grandmasters present, won clear first in a field that included two former world champions and five former Soviet champions. Savon went undefeated and earned his crown with an impressive score of 15/21.
