Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
58th US Open (1957)
<1957 US Open
Cleveland, Ohio
August 5-17, 1957>

At the time, the big story of this tournament was the triumph of 13-year-old Bobby Fischer. Forgotten is another tiebreak controversy, possibly even worse than the 1955 near fiasco between Rossolimo and Reshevsky. Arthur Bisguier was originally proclaimed the winner, and was driving back to New York with the first place trophy before a recalculation gave the title to Fischer instead. Bisguier later wrote an article for "Chess Review" (October 1957, p. 297-298) in which he did his best to be sportmanslike and praise Fischer copiously, but his bitterness with the tournament officials and tiebreaking systems in general was apparent.

Another first in this tournament was the initial appearance at the US Open of Jerry Hanken. Anybody who knew Jerry was not allowed to forget this.

But you want a real piece of irony? Hanken's first round opponent was Anthony Santasiere, who held the record at that time for most US Opens played in.

-----

Of course, there was another story or two. The event drew 175 players from 23 states, the District of Columbia, Mexico, and Canada. A player from the last of these could have been the 176th, but he didn't show and missed a chance he no doubt later regretted to beat up on Fischer in round 1.

1953 US Open Champion Donald Byrne held the lead until losing to Fischer in round 9 and dropping into a tie with brother Robert. He overtook Fischer the next round, with Robert Byrne and Bisguier a half-point behind.

Both leaders won in round 11, Byrne defeating his brother in the process. Bisguier remained in position a half-point behind, and took his chance to beat Byrne in round 12 and finish tied with Fischer, who drew with Walter Shipman.

The event was directed, as was becoming customary, by Georges Koltanowski.

-----

The crosstable published in the <Chess Life> issue of September 20, 1957, contained a large number of errors and gaps. This reconstruction in based largely on work done by <TheFocus>, who accounted for the major problems and probably saved what little hair I have left. I have fixed a few minor remaining errors and made one larger revision to account for the pairings in some known games. And if anyone knows who the mysterious player #167 is, we would both thank you hearily!

Note: in the following crosstable, a series of dashes (<---->) indicates an unpaired game, usually due to withdrawal. (<+>) and (<->) indicate forfeit wins and losses. (<Bye>) is a full-point bye assigned by the director, normally due to having an odd number of players.
