URS Cup / Кубка СССР 1970 — Player list

The original <64> article I previously posted was published before the start of the tournament, so it was more indicative than authoritative.

Instead, using <64>, <RUSbase> and <CG>, here are all of the 57 players (7 GM’s) who participated in the tournament:

It is rare for the player to be fully identified in <64>, which is the source used for the Cyrillic names.

The tournament began was a 50-player, 25-game first round between the non-GM’s. Then the GM’s were seeded into the 2nd round, resulting in the following games/round as the knockout format tournament progressed:

25 – 32 – 16 – 8 – 4 – 2 – (1+1)

The final round featured two games, one to determine 1st and 2nd place, the other to determine 3rd and 4th.

The final finishers were (1st-4th): Bronstein, Shmits, Savon and Alburt.
