The second Mikhail Chigorin Memorial Chess Tournament was held in the winter of 1947 in the Soviet capital of Moscow. Ten of the USSR's best chess masters were pitted against six strong masters from Eastern Europe in what would be one of the strongest post-war tournaments leading up to the 1948 World Championship. Mikhail Botvinnik finished clear first with an impressive 11/15.
