The 2nd International Alekhine Memorial Tournament was held in the Soviet capital of Moscow in 1971, on the fifteen year anniversary of the first Alekhine Memorial. 18 of the world's best grandmasters, including the world champion, were invited to participate in the elite, round robin event. The participants were (in order of ELO): Boris Spassky (2690), Viktor Korchnoi (2670), Tigran Petrosian (2640), Vasily Smyslov (2620), Mikhail Tal (2620), Vlastimil Hort (2605), Leonid Stein (2605), David Bronstein (2590), Yuri Balashov (2570), Fridrik Olafsson (2570), Vladimir Savon (2570), Wolfgang Uhlmann (2570), Vladimir Tukmakov (2565), Anatoli Karpov (2540), Florin Gheorghiu (2530), Bruno Parma (2530), Robert Byrne (2510), and Levente Lengyel (2485). 20 year old Anatoli Karpov and three time Soviet champion Leonid Stein tied for first place, each with 11/17. Both players overcame a field that included the current world champion as well as three previous world champions and various world challengers of the current and previous generations.
