Twelve players in a round robin, among them three grandmasters, Pomar from the hosting nation, relatively young Timman, and the Icelandic triumphator Sigurjonsson, as well as, amongst others, two players you should maybe name on cg. only with the greatest possible caution, taking a deep breath before fully reading their corresponding sites, Raymond Dennis and Kenneth Saul :))
The tournament report in Spanish language by Rafael Santana, with a nice original picture of the winner: http://www.ajedrecito6.galeon.com/i...
<Orense> was a series, previous winner in 1975 was Larsen, the great Dane.
