  • As in 1964, the Soviet Championship was not a Zonal this year. A Soviet Zonal was held in Vilna, from which Tseshovsky, Balashov, and Gulko qualified for the 1976 Interzonals. Petrosian, Spassky and Polugaevsky were already seeded to play. Geller, Tal and Kuzmin were selected by a FIDE Committee consisting of Euwe, Averbakh, Matanovic, Elo and Golombek. Kuzmin apparently withdrew and was replaced by Smyslov.
