(*) I used SCID 4.5 this time, and it doesn’t allow easy manipulation of crosstable headings. FWIW. But a word more, to be explicit – SCID correctly calculates the approximate age of the participant, but the nationality and titles are the current values of the players – as given in the SCID database files.

For instance, at the time of the tournament, Russian was an ethnicity as well as an political entity within the USSR, but it was not a nation. I believe all participants would have nationality URS (USSR or Soviet), if the contemporaneous value were used. However, the nationality column does show that ~ 50% of these young players eventually emigrated from the USSR (and its descendent countries post-breakup). To demonstrate this Soviet chess diaspora, I’ll leave the column in place. I find it interesting.

Now, as already mentioned, the FIDE titles shown above are not contemporaneous (see next table), but SCID’s defaults, i.e. the current (i.e. the highest) obtained by the player. It reflects well on the strength of the tournament that all players eventually became GM’s.

The 1984 Chess Horizons I’m using as a reference does provide a crosstable with contemporaneous FIDE titles of the players. Using SCID to produce the crosstable from the now-normalized <CG> game collection, and then editing the contemporaneous player title/ratings from Chess Horizons to produce the following:

Well, I’m pleasantly surprised to see that SCID correctly back-dated the rating, (*) except for Chekhov and Balashov, where I added the ratings from CH. Note that I use SCID’s rating.ssp data file, rather than spelling.ssp to produce this level of detail.

Overall, URS-ch51 was a youthful tournament, won by a very youthful talent, Sokolov.

Soldiering on then, and running my round report program, gives the correct post-sixth round leader board as that published in Chess Horizons. It really is unfortunate that they messed up by overwriting round 4 pairings (with round 5). Ah, but what can you do, mistakes do happen.
