Jun-04-10  I play the Fred: With all due respect, how did this guy manage to get a spot in the 1987 SWIFT Tournament?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: Probably home field advantage. Relatively weak players from the host city or nation are often admitted to high level tournaments, both to give them an opportunity against strong players and to heighten local interest.

It's an old practice. For instance, Richard Reti got his start as an outclassed local player here: Game Collection: Vienna 1908

Apr-16-14  Tommytabs: 'This guy' was Belgian champion in 1985, entitling him to a place in this very prestigious tournament played in Brussels (well spotted, Phony Benoni!). Of course he was well out of his depth, even though he missed a draw against Kasparov, only narrowly lost to Short and Larsen, and also lost to his countryman Winants only through stubbornly avoiding a perpetual check line. In the very limited database for this guy notice the impressive status of most of his opponents, however. Ironically game 5 against Schuermans (not Schuurmans) is very misleading since the overall score between these two is overwhelmingly in favour of this guy. But that's (limited) databases for you...
