Bernard Cafferty & Mark Taimanov

From the 1920s through to the break up of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, the Soviet Championship was always one of the year's strongest chess tournaments. Soviet players regarded the title of Soviet Champion as second only to that of World Champion. State funding for chess meant that the Soviet Union produced an extraordinary number of strong grandmasters who battled it out in these marathon contests.

The Grandmasters represented the elite of World Chess. Alekhine, Botvinnik, Keres, Bronstein, Tal, Petrosian, Korchnoi, Geller, Stein, Spassky, Karpov, and Kasparov were all winners at least once, and the tournaments have gone down in legend for the quality and creative inspiration of the games.

This book encompasses every single championship giving crosstables, selected, annotated games and valuable introductions to each event describing the political machinations that formed the backdrop to these championships. The annotations bring these extraordinary and instructive struggles to life.

Softback published 2016 (original edition 1998), softback, 224 pages.
