Palma de Mallorca 1967
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

Also known as the III Torneo Internacional de Palma de Mallorca, the tournament was sponsored by the publishing corporation Asociación de la Prensa de Madrid. It followed up the successes of Palma de Mallorca (1965) and Palma de Mallorca (1966), and was continued with Palma de Mallorca (1968) and Palma de Mallorca (1969), until the event culminated with the organization of Palma de Mallorca Interzonal (1970). The field contained six IM's and 10 GM's, including Portisch (#12 in Chessmetrics* world ranking), Larsen (#11), and the Russian ex-world champions Smyslov (#8) and Botvinnik (#7). In the end, these four highest ranked also took the first four places.

Hotel Jaime I, Palma, Mallorca (rounds 1-10 and 13-17) and Ciudadela, Menorca# (rounds 11-12), 27 November - 17 December 1967, final standings and crosstable:
