  FSR: Weird result. Petrosian beat out both Tal and Vaganian by half a point. The difference? While Petrosian was undefeated, Tal and Vaganian each lost one game - to Ivanovic, who finished next to last with a -6 score! Petrosian beat ivanovic.

  Honza Cervenka: Ivanovic was playing quite entertaining chess here. He beat also Gyula Sax and Jose Luis Vilela. But he lost ten games and made just two draws in sixteen games.
