Older chess lovers are probably remembering the big match played in Belgrade between the team of the Soviet Union and the rest of the world.In 1970, the elite of the greatest masters of chess came together and possibly the biggest spectacle to date.A large number of people gathered in the square of Nikola Pasic, where he was following the pillows on the demonstration boards.And in the hall were the best players in the world.Robert Fischer was unpredictable and weird in the demands.Still, he unexpectedly agreed to play on the second board and left the first to Bent Larsen.So the match on the scoreboards was like this.

The USSR played with the following players: USSR: 1.Boris Spaski 2. Tigran Petrosyan, 3. Viktor Korchnoy, 4. Lav Polugajevski, 5. Efim Geler, 6. Vasily Smyslov, 7. Mark Tajmanov, 8.. Mihail Botvinik, 9. Mihail Talj, 10. Paul Keres, reserves: Leonid Stein and David Bronstein.

I’m sorry I do not have an adequate translation of the name of the chess player  into English, but I hope that they will know you about which players it is.

The team of the rest of the world has performed the following composition:1. Bent Larsen (Denmark), 2. Robert  Fischer (USA), 3. Lajos Portis (Hungary), 4. Vlastimil Hort (CSSR), 5. Svetozar Gligoric (Yugoslavia), 6. Semjuel Reshevsky (USA), 7.. Volfgang Ulman (DDR), 8. Milan Matulovic (Yugoslavia), 9. Miguel Najdorf (Argentina), 10. Borislav Ivkov (Yugoslavia), reserves: Friedrich Olafson (Iceland) and Klau Darga (Germany).

The result of the match was 20.5: 19.5 !

For the end,

I set out one lot between Bent Larsen and Boris Spaski. The excellent combination ended with two queens for black.

Enjoy.

I am Dragan Čanković aged 65 years. I live in Belgrade, Serbia as a pensioner. On this site, my nickname is as well as on Facebook Robin Biznis.

Here I am trying to make some money through my own.

It's also very interesting for me to read what other people are writing and publishing.

I experience it as a creative work that actually is.

I wish you all good health and happiness to all of you.

  1. I’m not a big fan of the sport. I have never played chess. At the first photo (if from this tournament) I see female hands. In the listed names I did not read a woman’s name. Did there have been female participants in this tournament?
