Noordwijk 1965
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

A combination of eight grandmasters and masters came together to compete in the annual Noteboom Memorial held in Noordwijk, The Netherlands from February 21st to the 28th, 1965. Among the notable participants were former world champion Mikhail Botvinnik, Danish sensation Bent Larsen, and Soviet grandmaster of a bygone era Salomon Flohr. Jan Hein Donner led the Dutch contingent of players that included Jacob Kort and Carl Van den Berg. Bulgarian grandmaster Milko Bobotsov and Yugoslav grandmaster Petar Trifunovic rounded out the roster of participants. Botvinnik was only two years out from under his world championship crown but had stayed frosty in his level of play, and he displayed as much in his pure dominance of this small but talented field of players. He finished with a commanding +5 out of seven rounds with Trifunovic a distant second place behind him.
