  GrahamClayton: Interesting to note that Botvinnik scored 1.5/2 against the other seven players competing in the tournament.

  Calli: Worth mentioning that "Sverdlovsk" is today Ekaterinburg or perhaps Yekaterinburg if directly transliterated from the Russian Екатеринбург. The Soviets called it Sverdlovsk from 1924 and 1991 names after Communist party leader Yakov Sverdlov.

Not close at all. Sverdlovsk/Yekaterinburg is over 1,000 miles east of Moscow.
