  wordfunph: from Robert Byrne's book Great Chess Victories and Defeats..

<When Migel Quinteros became ill and had to give up his place at the 1974-75 Hastings International Tournament, Gudmundur Sigurjonsson of Iceland filled in for him. He shared second prize and won the International Grandmaster title.>

good Gudmundur!

Sep-25-14  waustad: Happy b'day! He may play locally still, but he hasn't played a FIDE rated game this century.
May-24-18  adalthor23: The last games in this collection are played by a player with the same name, but much younger and with 500-600 elo points less ...

  Tabanus: Namely Gudmundur Sigurjonsson.
Apr-18-19  diagonal: GM Sigurjonsson: Winner on tie-break of the <V. Orense International Invitation Tournament in January 1976>.

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:

<Orense> was a series, previous winner in 1975 was Larsen, the great Dane.
