A small party gathered on the 20th of March in the Olympia Casino. Victor Korchnoi was holding his 70th jubilee. Olympic Champions of different years were invited to amuse the outstanding player of the 20th century: M. Taimanov, S. Rublevsky, K. Sakaev. Now since several beating boys should be provided too, the St.Petersburg Chess Federation arranged a big open tournament with two qualifying places.
