USSR Championship 1963
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 31st Soviet Chess Championship was played in the city of Leningrad from November 23rd to December 27th, 1963. Twenty of the Soviet Union's best grandmasters competed in the round robin event, with only two noticeable absences: the newly crowned world champion Tigran Petrosian and the newly deposed Mikhail Botvinnik. As usual, the field was composed of players who had qualified from the very strong Soviet semi-finals held earlier in the year: Viacheslav Osnos, Boris Spassky, Alexey Suetin, and Igor Bondarevsky qualified from Kharkov; Lev Polugaevsky, Iivo Nei, Arkady Novopashin, and Alexander Zakharov qualified from Moscow; Ratmir Kholmov, Leonid Stein, Eduard Gufeld, and Semyon Furman qualified from Sverdlovsk; and Aivars Gipslis, Vladimir Bagirov, David Bronstein, and Janis Klovans qualified from Alma-Ata. Four invitations were also granted to four former Soviet champions: Mark Taimanov, Viktor Korchnoi, Efim Geller, and Yuri Averbakh. The evenly matched field saw a three-way tie for first by the final, which was followed by two playoff rounds that saw Leonid Stein emerge as the champion. It was the first of what would be three Soviet crowns, and it signaled his arrival as one of the world's best players.
