USSR Championship 1984
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 51st Soviet Chess Championship was a category X event held in the city of Lvov from April 2nd to the 28th, 1984. Eighteen of the Soviet Union's best grandmasters and masters participated in the round robin event. Fourteen qualified from semi-final tournaments played earlier the previous year. The fourteen qualifiers were (with ELO at the time of the championship): Alexander Beliavsky (2565), Alexey Myzvanavin (2470), and Vereslav Eingorn (2475) from Minsk; Smbat Lputian (2540), Alexander Chernin (2475), and Valery Chekhov (2535) from Irkutsk; Konstantin Aseev (2390), Adrian Mikhalchishin (2480), Andrei Sokolov (2495), Valery Salov (2440), and Konstantin Lerner (2485) from Nikolaev; and Evgeni Sveshnikov, Igor Novikov (2420), and Jaan Ehlvest (2480) from Volgodonsk. Because Karpov would not attend as returning champion and he and Kasparov had an extended world championship match that year, four wild card seats were presented to four top finishers of the Soviet League Championship played in Tallinn at the end of 1983. The four wild cards went to Josif Dorfman (2515), Lev Psakhis (2535), Andrei Kharitonov (2455), and Yuri Balashov (2535). Sveshnikov was unable to participate and his seat was given to Vladimir Tukmakov (2550). With the exception of Tukmakov, the entire line up of players had qualified for the championship, a format not seen in the Soviet crown's long history. The tournament was also surprising in terms of the results. The more egalitarian field finished quite differently than ratings would otherwise indicate. The talented, but young Sokolov finished clear first, having gone undefeated. The top six bucked convention by being some of the lower rated players of the events, and only one (Lputian, at sixth place) was rated over 2500. Previous winners of the Soviet crown, such as Psakhis and Dorfman, finished in the lower half of the field. The final standings and crosstable are as follow:

1 Sokolov 12.5/17 * = = 1 = 1 1 1 1 = 1 = = = = 1 = 1
