Group A. 1960.11.01-10. Round Robin 7 rounds. 8 players.
Group B. 1960.11.01-10. Round Robin 7 rounds. 8 players.

GM Yuri Lvovich Averbakh of USSR visited Indonesia for the second time. The first was in 1956. This time he wasn’t alone. He was accompanied by a promising player Vladimir Konstantinovich Bagirov.

Averbakh at 38-year old was still in his peak. In that year he came second in Hastings, England, only behind GM Svetozar Gligorić. A few weeks before he arrived at Jakarta, Averbakh won a tournament at Adelaide, Australia.

The multiple times Azerbaijan champion Bagirov was relatively unknown outside the USSR. His recent notable achievement was the 4th place in the semifinal of the prestigious USSR Championship 1959. He qualified for the final in 1960.

Percasi (All Indonesia Chess Federation) held two 8-match tournaments to pay tribute to the players. It was a pity that Indonesia could’t field all the country’s best. The event collided with the Chess Olympiad at Leipzig, East Germany and the FIDE Zonal 10 at Sydney, Australia. So the fans wouldn’t be able to see Max Arie Wotulo, Abubakar Baswedan, Arovah Bachtiar, and especially the reigning National Champion Baris Hutagalung. Among the Indonesian élite only Lim Hong Gie and MHS Nainggolan participated.

As such, only those two players who gave the guests hard time. Bagirov was forced to draw by Nainggolan. Averbakh even had to suffer a direr consequence. The world famous endgame theoritician misplayed a double-edged queen endgame against Lim Hong Gie. The 20-year old Indonesian victimized him in 77 moves. However the hold off didn’t stop the USSR players to win the event. They produced a clean sweep for the rest of their opponents while Nainggolan and Lim lost important points against their countrymen.
