Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Leningrad Championship (1932)
A city championship might not sound very significant, but those in Moscow or Leningrad could be as strong as national championships in many countries. Perhaps some of these names might not be familiar:

Vladimir Alatortsev; Mikhail Botvinnik; Alexander S Budo; Vitaly Chekhover; Grigory Abramovich Goldberg; Alexander Ilyin-Zhenevsky; Georgy Lisitsin; Grigory Miasoedov; Abram Yakovlevich Model; Ilya Leontievich Rabinovich; Viacheslav Ragozin; Leonid Savitsky.

But eleven of the twelve players would compete in the finals of the USSR Championship, several contending for top prizes. Also, nine of the twelve players were under 25 years old, boding well for the future. The young group included reigning USSR champion Botvinnik, and he showed some extra class by winning his first six games while the rest of the field was busy beating up on each other. Alatortsev pulled away from the pack to finish second, but the rest of the field was bunched up; there was more distance between 1st and 3rd than between 3rd and 12th.
