  hemy: In 1974 Zelig Chessakov was my teammate in "Bat Yam" team in Israel Primer League. In 1975 he moved to Rishon LeZion "Feldklein" team.

In 3rd round, on February 8, 1975 was played match "Bat Yam" - "Feldklein", that resulted with "Bat Yam" victory 3.5:2.5. The details about this match are in "Davar", February 14, 1974, p. 14.

On the 3rd board I played against Chessakov.
The following diagram displaying position after move 18. ... Be7-f6.

19.Bxe4 dxe4 20.Nd7 would give better chances to White. I decided to complicate the game and played 19.Bf4!? After 19. ... g5 20.f3 gxf4 21.fxe4 Bxe5 22.exf4 Bg7 23.f5 Bd7 24.Rxd5 Bb5 25.c4 Be8 26.f6 Bxf6 27.e5 Bg7 the position on the board was as following:

Here I played 28.Rf6 and after 28. ... Bc6 29.Qe4 (apparently 29.Rd3 and later Rg3 was winning the game) 29. ... Rfe8 30.e6 Bxd5?? (Chessakov made mistake being in "zeitnot", 30. ... Rxe6 31.Rxe6 Qb2 32. Rxc6 bxc6 33.Rd1 would bring the game to a draw) 31.Qh7+ Kf8 35.Rxf7#

  hemy: Correction about the date of this game.

I found an article in "Maariv", January 23, 1976, p. 31 about the match "Bat Yam" - "Feldklein" Rishon Letzion from the 1st round of 1976 (January 17) Israeli Primer League. In this article mentioned result of the game Kasimov - Chessakov (1-0). This match result like in 1975 was 3.5:2.5 in favor of Bat Yam. On 1st board GM Liberzon (Bat Yam) - IM Radashkovich 0.5-0.5.

The article in "Davar", February 14, 1975, p. 14, I referred in my previous post, didn't mentioned individual results and I wrongly assumed that this game was played in 1975.
