Crosstable:

The published crosstable ("Chess Life, November 1963, p. 296) does not have all results, and contains errors which could not be reconciled. For example, it gives Gligoric's first opponent as Marshall Rohland, but two separate first-hand accounts ("New York Times", August 13,1963 and Russell Miller in the "Washington Chess Letter, September, 1963, p.3) state that it was Andrew Karklins.

If you know of a complete crosstable or have additional or more accurate information, please leave a note in my forum.

A series of asterisks (****) indicates an unknown result or opponent.

The following game was published in Chess Review as having been played at the US Open at Chicago; however, Wasserman did not play in the tournament that year. These players did meet in the last round of the Western Open in Bay City about a month previous, and I strongly suspect this is their game from that event. (Chess Review published games from both tournaments over several issues,( Tge game will remain here until the situation is clarified.

Joseph Wasserman - Robert Eugene Byrne
