Biel Interzonal 1976
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

As part of the cycle which ended up with the Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Match (1978), three players from this event would go to the Candidate matches (1977). Qualified from the zonal tournaments* were: Sosonko from Barcelona (1975), Sanguineti from Fortaleza (1975), Csom and Andersson from Pula (1975), Liberzon from Reykjavik (1975), Diaz and Castro from Santo Domingo (1975), Rogoff from the US Championship (1975), Matanovic from Vraca (1975), Gulko from Vilnius (1975) and Smejkal* from Arandjelovac (1976) (= 11 players). Portisch, Petrosian and Byrne were qualified from the Candidate matches 1974. FIDE also selected Larsen, Tal, Smyslov, Hübner, and Geller, and added Lombard from the host country to have 20 players.

Tournament leaders: Hans Suri and Hansjürg Leuzinger. Games started 5 pm.

Larsen qualified directly, while Petrosian and Portisch qualified from the Varese Interzonal Playoff (1976). The three were joined by Henrique Mecking, Lev Polugaevsky, and Vlastimil Hort from the Manila Interzonal (1976) to play against Boris Spassky and Viktor Korchnoi in the 1977 Candidate matches. For an overview of these, see http://www.worldchesslinks.net/ezdo....

Hans Suri, the father of the Biel Chess Festival was busy because parallel to the main event there were also 1) Internationale Blitzturnier (169 players, won by Oscar Panno), 2) Internationale Open (224 players, won by Dragutin Sahovic), 3) Internationale Open Meisterturnier (96 players, won by Radovan Govedarica), 4) Internationales Open Hauptturnier (139 players, won by Edgar Prang), 5) Internationales Open Allgemeines Turnier (126 players, won by Christian Flueckiger), and finally, 6) Jugendturnier (72 players, won by Murray Chandler).

Tournament books: WM 76 Biel-Schweiz. Offizielles Turnierbuch by Janos Flesch and Alex Crisovan (Hans Suri/Hertig & Co. AG, Biel 1976. 160 pp.); Sakkvilágbajnokság 1976: Manila, Biel, Varese by Janos Flesch (Budapest 1979. 391 pp. (in Hungarian)).

*Several masters were not allowed by their federations to play in Barcelona 1975 because of the Franco regime. FIDE therefore added a 4-player playoff in Arandjelovac (1976), from which Smejkal qualified. And also Wolfgang Uhlmann, who went to the Manila Interzonal (1976). #http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped..., finished in 1966.
