  Open Defence: why is the event called umasking?

and was it actually one of the USSR Championships ?

Jul-25-07  LIFE Master AJ: The (old/former) USSR had a lot of tournaments. (Qualifiers, Zonals, Championships ... done in stages. 1/4 finals, semi-finals and then the finals.

Its not real clear what stage this game is from, but we do know it was played in Moscow in 1969. (See Informant # 08, game # 195.)

Jul-26-07  Marmot PFL: "He was incredibly lucky today!"- Zaitsev. Actually he said that about this game -Bronstein vs I Zaitsev, 1967

Here Zaitsev was incredibly greedy (Bxc5)
