URS Cup (1970) – Player list from 64 N31 Aug 6, 1970

I tried to carefully go through the paragraph listing all the potential players listed in the Aug 6, 1970 issue of <64 N31 (0109) Aug 6, 1970 p3>. The format presented here makes it easier to see which players came from what Federation. Those who were slated to play, but didn’t make it to the tournament are denoted by an asterisk (*). I’ve tended to list the Westernized names used by <CG>, but the Cyrillic spelling is given for every player:

==============================================================================

As Tal noted in <64 N32 Aug 7-13>, because of the many cancellations, the original required 64-players were lacking, and the organizers had to improvise. They elected to give the seven GM’s  a bye for the first round matches, and seeded them into the second round. Thus, the first round involved 25-pairings of the 50-top players from the various chess federations across the Soviet Union.

Thus there were 50 players in the first round, 64 in the second, then 32, 16, etc.
