  • Reshevsky's +14 score matches Denker's 1944 mark as the best ever. His 16 points are the most ever scored in US Championship play.

  • Games were played in the auditorium of the Chanin Building.

    Louis J. Isaacs of Chicago played nine games, winning one and losing eight. He failed to show up for the tenth game and was accordingly forfeited. On receiving his protest, the Tournament Director proposed that the matter be placed for final decision before the Tournament Committee. However, Isaacs replied that he did not want to put anyone to any trouble, and he did not show up for the remainng games. His score was cancelled. -- Chess Review, December 1946, page 8
