Korchnoi's Career 1946-1977, Short Events

Continuing with Korchnoi's Career 1946-1977, Team Events++, for today's post I looked at events where Levy & O'Connell (L&O) showed only two or three games played by Korchnoi in a particular event. I started with 37 of these.

The following chart shows how I cataloged the different events. A handful of events (e.g. '1946 USSR Junior Ch., Leningrad') are mismatches between the number of games according to Viktor Korchnoi's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record (TMER; 1946-2015) and the number of games given in L&O. Another handful (e.g. '1949 MOS1') are not explained in L&O. One 'event' is an error introduced by the scanning of the L&O index; for a description of that process, see Korchnoi's Career 1945-1977 on Paper (January 2017).

The rest of the events show the description given in L&O. Most of these are team matches between cities. Next post: the stragglers!
