Monte Carlo 1967
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

After more than sixty years, the city of Monte Carlo in the principality of Monaco hosted a new annual series of international chess tournaments beginning in 1967. Eleven grandmasters and masters were invited to participate in the round robin event, though one player had to withdraw at the last minute. The final list of participants included former world champion Vasily Smyslov and Efim Geller from the Soviet Union; Bobby Fischer and William Lombardy from the United States; Bent Larsen from Denmark; Svetozar Gligoric and Aleksander Matanovic from Yugoslavia; Gyozo Forintos from Hungary; and Volf Bergraser and Guy Mazzoni from France. This was another important triumph for Fischer as he placed clear first ahead of both Smyslov and Geller, despite dropping a point and a half to both players. Although Smyslov finished undefeated with +4, it was only good enough for clear second behind Fischer.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Fischer 7/9 * 0 1 1 1 1 1 1
