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 Anatolij 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.
