  Benzol: This game and Korchnoi vs A J Mestel, 1976 come from the same event.

It's also probable that Taimanov vs D Goodman, 1976 is also from the same event.

Does anyone know anything more about it?

Jan-21-06  WMD: There's a report on the event in the March 1976 BCM, with all the game scores. Here's the introduction:

<On Saturday 24th January, the London office of B.T. Batsford, the chess book publishers, was the venue for a match tournament between teams representing 'Young England' and the USSR.

This event was sponsored by the British Chess Magazine, the Slater Foundation and a number of other donors who wish to remain anonymous. [...]

The two teams comprised Michael Stean (international master), David Goodman (current World Under 18 champion) and Jonathon Mestel (World Under 18 Champion in 1974) for 'Young England' and the experienced grandmaster trio (two of them Batsford authors) of Victor Korchnoi, Mark Taimanov and David Bronstein for the Soviet Union.


The final result of the match tournament was was 5.5 - 12.5 in favour of the USSR. This was a fine achievement by the young English players whose percentage score was better than that of the full England team in (at least) their last two encounters with the Soviet Union. The games were played at a fast time limit (25 minutes per player per game) and this contributed considerably to the interest of the spectators present, and, without detracting from the quality, helped to increase the proportion of hard-fought games since the fear of losing was much less than in a normal international tournament or match.>
