The Polugaevsky Memorial is named in the honor of Lev Polugaevsky (1934-1995), a Soviet grandmaster who was at some point ranked as high as 3rd in the world, and became an icon of chess theory in the XX century. 22 grandmasters and many other strong players are participating in the Russian Cup Stage (Men) in Samara. Among them is WGM Natalia Pogonina.
