USSR Championship 1961a
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

The 28th USSR Championship was played in Moscow from January 11-February 11, 1961. It was the first of two championships that year, as the January-Februrary scheduling was changed to November-December. The tournament also served as the Soviet Zonal, qualifying four players for the Interzonal held in Stockholm in 1962 (see Game Collection: Interzonals 1962: Stockholm). The players hoping for an all expenses paid trip to Sweden included:

Yuri Averbakh; Anatoly Bannik; Isaac Boleslavsky; Georgy Konstantinovich Borisenko; David Bronstein; Alexander Cherepkov; Semyon Abramovich Furman; Efim Geller; Eduard Gufeld; Abram Khasin; Viktor Korchnoi; Anatoly S Lutikov; Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian; Lev Polugaevsky; Vladimir Simagin; Vasily Smyslov; Boris Spassky; Leonid Stein; Mark Taimanov; Vitaly Georgievich Tarasov.

The most prominent newcomer was Leonid Stein, whose sixth round win over Petrosian marked him as a player to be watched. It also irked Petrosian to the extent that he unleashed his claws and scored 9 points in his next 11 games, taking a 1.5 point lead with two rounds to go and coasting from there.

Korchnoi came second with a furious finish, winning his last four games. Geller and Stein took the final two qualifiying spots; the former was at nor near the top most of the way, while the newcomer won a crucial last-round game against Spassky for the final slot.
