  1. Moscow 1975
    In October of 1975 another Alekhine Memorial International Chess Tournament was organized in the Soviet capital of Moscow. Eight grandmasters from the USSR were pitted against eight grandmasters from Europe and the Americas in an all-play-all round robin event. The participants were (in order of ELO): Viktor Korchnoi (2665), Tigran Petrosian (2645), Mikhail Tal (2645), Boris Spassky (2625), Robert Byrne (2600), Efim Geller (2600), Vlastimil Hort (2600), Ratmir Kholmov (2540), Albin Planinc (2535), Rafael Vaganian (2530), Alexander Beliavsky (2500), Gyozo Forintos (2490), Silvino Garcia Martinez (2445), Levente Lengyel (2410), Hans Bohm (2300), and Michael Stean (2300). The average of the combined ratings of all the players qualified the memorial as a category XII event. It was another stellar event for Geller who edged out former world champion Spassky for clear first by half a point in the final.
