Leningrad 1977
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

Leningrad was host to an international chess tournament to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the October Revolution. The round robin event was held from June 24th to July 19th, 1977. Eighteen grandmasters, including the current world champion and two former world champions, participated in the top event. They were (in order of ELO): Anatoli Karpov (2690), Mikhail Tal (2620), Zoltán Ribli (2595), Oleg Romanishin (2595), Vasily Smyslov (2595), Jan Smejkal (2575), Yuri Balashov (2565), Alexander Beliavsky (2555), Gennadi Kuzmin (2550), Florin Gheorghiu (2545), Rafael Vaganian (2545), Mark Taimanov (2530), Milorad Knezevic (2500), Ivan Radulov (2500), Lothar Vogt (2495), Alexander Kochyev (2490), Sergio Mariotti (2490), and Guillermo Garcia Gonzáles (2485). The average of the combined ratings of all the participants qualified the tournament as a category XIII event. As usual, Soviet dominance was on full display in the wake of Fischer's absence and the string of successes Karpov had been earning in the void. However, the world champion was stunned into shared fourth in this event. He was surpassed by previous world champions Tal, who shared first, and Smyslov at clear third, but the ultimate tournament winner was Romanishin in what would be his greatest victory. The uncompromising player scored wins against nearly half the field to finish with +6, beating out Tal on the tiebreaks. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Romanishin 11.5/17 * ˝ ˝ 1 ˝ 0 ˝ 1 1 1 ˝ 0 ˝ 1 1 ˝ 1 1
