USSR Championship 1987
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 54th Soviet Chess Championship was a category XII event played in the city of Minsk from March 4th to the 29th, 1987. Eighteen of the Soviet Union's best grandmasters and master competed in the round robin tournament, including (in order of ELO): Artur Yusupov (2645), Alexander Beliavsky (2630), Vladimir Malaniuk (2575), Lev Psakhis (2575), Vladimir Tukmakov (2575), Alexander Chernin (2570), Viktor Gavrikov (2550), Valery Salov (2550), Vereslav Eingorn (2545), Mikhail Gurevich (2540), Evgeny Bareev (2535), Sergey Dolmatov (2515), Alexander Khalifman (2515), Vitaly Tseshkovsky (2510), Smbat Lputian (2500), Viktor Kupreichik (2475), Nukhim Rashkovsky (2470), and Jaan Ehlvest (2445). Despite leading the field the entire tournament, Ehlvest's last round loss to Yusupov allowed both Beliavsky and Salov to overtake him in the final at 11/17 each. A playoff match was organized to determine a sole winner, and four games were played from April 29th to May 4th, with Beliavsky emerging as the winner with a healthy 3/4 final score. It was Beliavsky's second consecutive Soviet crown and his third overall. The final standings and crosstables are as follows:
