Palma de Mallorca 1966
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

Also known as the II Torneo Internacional de Palma de Mallorca, the tournament was sponsored by Hotel Jaime I and the Palma tourist industry, the publishing corporation Asociación de la Prensa and the Spanish chess federation.1 The budget was larger than for the modest Palma de Mallorca (1975) and attracted several strong GM's, including the ex-World champion Tal. Half of the players were on their way home after the olympiad in Havana (Cuba) which had ended 20th November.2 Tournament Director was Jorge Puig Laborda, and main arbiter was Harry de Graaf.3 The event got a thumbs-up, and was continued next year with Palma de Mallorca (1967).

Hotel Jaime I, Palma, 27 November - 16 December 1966:
