Teesside 1975
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

In the year 1975, one of the strongest grandmaster tournaments held in Great Britain in decades was organized at Teesside. Four of England's best and up-and-coming players met eleven participants invited from Europe, the United States, and the Soviet Union in the round robin format. The complete list of attendants were (in order of ELO): Robert Huebner (2615), Vasily Smyslov (2605), Efim Geller (2600), Vlastimil Hort (2600), David Bronstein (2590), Lubomir Kavalek (2555), Florin Gheorghiu (2540), Fridrik Olfasson (2535), William Lombardy (2515), Gyula Sax (2510), Jan Timman (2510), Raymond Keene (2505), William Hartston (2475), Anthony Miles (2435), and Michael Stean (2370). The average of the combined ratings of the participants qualified the tournament as a category XII event. Although England had rejoined the world in elite international chess, the Soviets dominated in their usual fashion, with Geller taking clear first followed by his countrymen Smyslov and Bronstein. One game decided by forfeit (Miles' win over Huebner in the final round) has been ommitted from this collection.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Geller 9/14 * 1 1 1 1 1

2nd Smyslov 8/14 * 0 1 1 1 1
