In one of the strongest tournaments of the era (early 1980's), Grandmaster Dzindzichashvili -- currently in his prime -- took first place against a field of some of the world's best! In the 5th and critical round, Dzindzi was faced off against GM Lev Alburt. When Dzindzi surprised Alburt by playing right into his "bread and butter" opening (Alekhine's Defense), Alburt never recovered and eventually lost in a positional battle.
