1985 Interzonals and FIDE Rating Rankings – Working Notes

Jump to: Jan 1985 FIDE-rating ranked list of izt players, or non-izt players

With all this introduction, let me praise another of the heroic Chess history researchers, Wojciech Bartelski. His wonderful OlimpBase site not only serves as a shining example of organization, but of the preservation of data FIDE rightfully should be maintaining. Specifically, for our present purposes, the FIDE rating list from January 1985 which would have been used in determining which FIDE players would qualify by rating.
