Oct-26-13  ughaibu: Professor! Shouldn't it be 'three years before', rather than "three years ago"?

  suenteus po 147: <ughaibu> Yes. Yes it should. And it looks like someone already heard you since it's corrected now.

  swordfish: Wow - 21 rounds! That's what I call a chess tournament!

  suenteus po 147: <swordfish> This was back in the days of adjournments. Once the two players made the time control they were done for the day and could have dinner, smoke, and maybe play some tennis or go bowling (not necessarily with each other). So it was possible to have longer tournaments without substantial 'fatigue' creeping into the player performance (though even then there are still certain of examples of that from tournaments at this time). And, too, we mustn't forget that less money bought more grandmasters and more of their time back then. It's an expensive proposition to put together a lot of GMs in one event, or to have double rounds with a smaller field that's still strong.
Feb-06-15  mojonera: Solo 2 de los participantes viven , Parma e Ivkov

  suenteus po 147: <mojonera> It has been 50 years since this event took place. It's impressive, in a way, that Ivkov and Parma are still around. I wonder, were they the youngest participants? Or Fischer must have been because he was always the youngest.

  perfidious: Fischer over Parma, by a bit more than a year.
Aug-23-16  ughaibu: Taking the results of just the top eight finishers, we get a tournament won by Kholmov.
Jan-24-17  jerseybob: The Marshall, not the Manhattan, was Fischer's home base in this tourney, and the back room where he played looks much the same today as it did in the CR photos from '65.
