Oegstgeest 1970
Compiled by sneaky pete
--*--

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Leidsch Schaakgenootschap (LSG, Leiden Chess Club) in 1970 an attempt was made to stage a match between former world champion and honorary member of the LSG, Dr. M.M. Botvinnik, and the would-be world champion Robert J. Fischer. Unfortunately, in the end insurmountable obstacles blocked this interesting plan.

As an almost equally attractive alternative, a match-tournament was organized between the former world champion Botvinnik, the new world champion Boris Spassky, the tournament world champion Bent Larsen and the world champion of the Leidseplein, Hein Donner. The games were played in April and May in the Rijnlands Lyceum (a high school) in the neighbouring village of Oegstgeest. World champion Spassky won, as he should, and Donner, the local whipping boy, did much better than expected.
