2nd World Correspondence Chess Championship
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by 2nd World Correspondence Chess Championship (1956)

For this 2nd final ( taking place from 1956 - 1959 ) the top three players in the 1st final ( the 1950 - 1953 contest ) were seeded into it but only Dr Mario Napolitano took up his free place. The rest of the field was selected by elimination in 10 preliminary groups of 7 players each. In Preliminary Group H, V Bergraser won the group on tie-break ahead of L Schmid, but Schmid was admitted into the final after H Malmgren had decided against taking up his seeded position. Preliminary Group A had a three-way tie with J Balogh, F Batik and B Koch. The Tournament director Larsson suspected this may have been engineered. According to the rules he may have promoted only Balogh because he had the most wins with Black. However, he eventually permitted all three players into the final. After the preliminary contests began the Soviet Union joined the I.C.C.F. ( International Correspondence Chess Federation ) and were granted a place in the 2nd final. Their nominee was V V Ragozin.
