Apr-11-16  Joseph Blackcape: Pretty surprising to see Petrosian not only to draw with a 2360 Franco, but at least it was a quick draw in the last round. The real weird thing is him losing (and resigning before an unavoidable mate) to a 2200 FM Tempone, who only scored 2 point in the other 12 games. As a warm up it probably didn't work for him too well either, since next he lost the match with Korchnoi without winning even 1 game too.

  Fusilli: The tournament was the result of Najdorf unrelenting efforts to promote chess in Argentina. He convinced the Clarin newspaper to fund the series of Clarin tournaments in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

In promoting this tournament, he frequently referred to it as having seven world champions on its roster: Spassky and Petrosian, regular champions; Panno, Ivkov, Gheorghiu and Lombardy, world junior champions; and Tempone, world U-16 champion in 1979.

The fans were a bit let down by the large number of draws in 25 moves or less, but Larsen more than compensated for it with his unwavering fighting spirit and great chess.
