Continuing with the Kasparov TMER (*), Early Years and Early Games, I started to compare the events in Kasparov's book Kasparov on Garry Kasparov, Part I: 1973-1985 (must set a record for the number of times the author's name appears on the spine of a chess book) with the early events listed on my page Garry Kasparov's TMER (1973-). While I was working through the book, I discovered a passage related to Kasparov's name change (p.45). The 'tournament' mentioned in the first sentence is the 1975 Spartak Junior Championship, also seen in the 'Early Games' post.

'What's in a name?', indeed.

(*) TMER = Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record
