Russian Championship Stats

The comments for the Russian championship results are closed for some reason, so I'll correct the things a bit in my blog.

Both Botvinnik and Tal won six Soviet championships, and the record of most Russian SFSR championship wins in the Soviet times belongs to Rashid Nezhmetdinov, with 5. So, Svidler broke Tal and Botvinnik's record back in 2013, and now the only records he's breaking are his own. Note also that Russian SFSR championships weren't equal to the modern Russian championships, because players from Moscow and Leningrad had their own championships in Soviet times, and, as a rule, Moscow and Leningrad-based players very rarely played in Russian championships.

The "All-Russian Tournaments" in the Russian Empire times were close to the Soviet championships in their lineup, because they included players from Ukraine, Baltic states and even Poland (parts of which belonged to Russian Empire until World War I).

Still, here are the winner records for all tournaments that were ever named "Russian Championship", in Russian Empire, Soviet Union and modern Russia.
