  Stonehenge: <At tournaments, in correspondence competitions M.I. Chigorin met Gatchina chess players more than once. Among them was the teacher of the Gatchina women's gymnasium, <<Ivan Andreevich Zybin>>. He took part in the tournaments of the strongest chess players of St. Petersburg in 1900, 1902.> and more:

<Chess matches were a favorite pastime of many educated families. This activity was carried away by teachers and students. At tournaments, in correspondence competitions, the residents of Gatchina more than once met with M.I. Chigorin. Among them was Major General <<Innokenty Andreevich Zybin>>, the owner of a house on Elizavetinskaya Street (now Dostoevsky Street), who took part in the tournaments of the strongest chess players in St. Petersburg in 1900 and 1902. In 1903, at an international correspondence tournament, he took 1st place. I. A. Zybin was the chess teacher of Nikolai Egorovich Mitropol'skiy, a famous chess player of the capital, who published the Chess magazine. For some period, IA Zybin edited the chess sections in the newspapers Novosti and Grazhdanin. He participated in tournaments by correspondence in the section "Chess", which was hosted by Chigorin in the newspaper "Novoye Vremya" (1900, 1901). The meetings of Zybin and Chigorin can be found in the book by I. Romanov "The creative heritage of M. I. Chigorin" (1960).>
