The just concluded USSR Team Championship was won by Moscow, which fielded an exceedingly strong team led by world champion Petrosian, former world champions Botvinnik and Smyslov, and grandmasters Bronstein, Kholmov and Vasyukov.
Final standings in the upper division are Moscow, 29.5 points; Russian Republic, (RSFSR), 29; Ukraine, 26.5, Leningrad, 23; Belorussia, 21.5, and Georgia, 20.5.
The last round pairings set the stage for a keenly fought battle between the present USSR champion and a former challenger for the world title.
