  Phony Benoni: Reshevsky finished fifth in the tournament, 1/2-point behind Factor, Hahlbohm and Whitaker, who tied for 2nd-4th. (Carlos Torre-Repetto finished first by a wide margin.)

Indeed, Reshevsky held second place before the last round when he lost to Whitaker. He may have been overmatched in individual games, but overall he was clearly a dangerous contender even at the age of 12.
