Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Hoogovens (1972)

While FIDE president Max Euwe was in Moscow to negotiate conditions for the Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972), the 34th Hoogovens tournament started in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands, in early January. Most of the players had participated in tournaments a month or so before: Portisch, Pomar, Ljubojevic and Benkö had played in Palma de Mallorca (1971), Smyslov, Hort and Savon had played in Moscow (1971), and Browne and Timman came straight from Stockholm Open (1971/72). None could come from Hastings (1971/72), which had not finished yet. At a very late stage it was clear that the invited Mikhail Tal was sick and could not come. After the drawing of lots on 10 January, however, a phone call from Antonio Angel Medina Garcia (who would be playing in the B-Group) made everyone happy. He was able to tell that Pomar was willing to step in, but he could only arrive in the country about half an hour before the start of play. Play started the next day at 1 pm. (1) Pomar won his game (which was perhaps deferred to later that afternoon) and overall performed above par. The competition was quite even, but the one to disappoint was Ljubojevic. Portisch had no losses and was unstoppable. Category: 11 (GM norm 9 points, IM norm 6,5 points). Top prizes: 4000, 3000 and 2500 Dutch guilders. (2)
