FIDE Review 1961


Wade, WCC 1963

EK: Robert Wade who says that after Teschner vs. Dueckstein was tied at 3-3, Dueckstein withdrew and conceded the place to Teschner. I don’t think this is true. I believe since Teschner had a better Sonneborn-Berger score in the tournament, he had draw odds. I don’t have anything to back this up, but thats how it was always done – first a playoff, and in case playoff is inconclusive, then whoever had a better Sonneborn-Berger score in the main tournament would advance. If for some reason there was no playoff, then again the Sonneborn-Berger was decisive, or they simply advanced all tied players. Thats how it was done in all the instances I have encountered so far. So I think Wade is wrong in his book. [Ref. BD191630]

EK: In Zone 5 it is not clear to me how Bisguier and Benko qualified when Lombardy and Weinstein couldn’t play. If I speculate, I would say that 1961 US Open championship was used for that. Benko won and I think (I couldn’t find a full table anywhere) Bisguier was 2nd (or at least best placed American after Benko) [Ref. BD191630]

EK: Benko definitely won the 1961 US Open Championship, but Bisguier only tied for 3rd and wasn’t next best placed American. Zoltan Kovacs (USA) was 2nd (There were hardly any non-US participants anyway). So it looks like 1961 US Open Championship wasn’t used as a qualifier either (at least not in Bisguier’s case). I think you can delete my comment on 1961 US Open Championship from the clippings page. [Ref. BI220357]MW: I would rather leave it in until we answer the original question. False trails also have a certain value in finding the truth.

[From the same source, translated by Google:] The Colombian Luis Mendoza was entered in the contest, but ultimately supposedly had a problem with the visa and could not travel to Venezuela with the rest of New Granada delegation. The player asked not to be excluded from matching, while solving this problem by force majeure. The technical committee of the tournament decided to wait until 11/22/1960, to play the first two rounds delayed. Colombian did not appear, but remained paired throughout the tournament. • Antony Roose hails from the island of Curacao and represented the Netherlands Antilles.
