  • As a result of this tournament, Lev Alburt, Nick deFirmian, and Maxim Dlugy qualified for the 1985 Interzonals.

  • Yasser Seirawan, John Fedorowicz, and James Tarjan tied for the final spot, which was won by Seirawan, apparently on tiebreak points, as I can find no record of any playoff.

  • Walter Browne also got an Interzonal spot. No idea why.
