    Silver_light, I am afraid you are not in position to estimate my knowledge or even dispute my statements.

    I have seen soviet players speaking before USSR fell and after. The difference is big and the conclusion is obvious: they were muzzled and watched in the soviet era.

    Just compare Kasparov's public statements from the 80's and 1993 onward.

    Have you ever heard the name Baturinski?

    Did you read Bronstein's books from the 90's?

    Baturinsky was the Kremlin's man who made sure that none of the USSR players stepped out of line. But he wasn't involved in Iceland in 1972.

    Perhaps the Soviets assumed that they'd win in 1972?
