1946. USSR vs GB (Radio match)
Compiled by vsadek
--*--

We hope that the “American Tragedy” can be avoided, wrote the British chess players in the letter they send to their Soviet colleagues when proposing a radio match after the radio tournament played between USSR and USA in 1945. The Soviet team had defeated the American with the astonishing score of 15 1/2 to 4 1/2. The chess world was surprised. For many persons, this result was a shock. The British players did not make the same error. They had a good knowledge of the strength of the Soviet team and they had well prepared all the games. Indeed, the percentage is not as disastrous as the American one, but the defeat could not be avoided. 14 to 6 on the men's boards and 4 to 0 on the women's boards.
