Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Mar del Plata (1959)

The 22nd Torneo Internacional de Ciudad Mar del Plata was held in Mar del Plata, Argentina from March 23rd to April 10th, 1959. Fifteen chess masters and grandmasters from Europe and the Americas were invited to compete in the round robin event. Among the notable participants were sixteen year old grandmaster Bobby Fischer from the United States, Borislav Ivkov from Yugoslavia, Rene Letelier Martner from Chile, Ludek Pachman from Czechoslovakia, and Miguel Najdorf who led eight of his fellow Argentinian chess masters in the field. Najdorf and Pachman tied for first place with +7 each at the final. Fischer managed to match Pachman's eight wins, but lost an additional game more than the Czech grandmaster, which was only good enough for shared 3rd-4th with grandmaster Ivkov.
