  • Players in green advanced to the Candidates.

  • Spassky, as the loser of the last World Championship match, and Tal, as the loser of the last Candidates Final, were seeded into the 1968 Candidates.

  • Fischer withdrew in a scheduling dispute. Since he did not complete half his schedule, his games were not counted. His three losses were all forfeits.

  • Reshevsky, Stein and Hort tied for the final Candidates spot, and played off in Los Angeles:
                 1    2    3 
    Reshevsky  xxxx    4-4
    Hort        xxxx 01  4-4
    Stein       10 xxxx  4-4

    When the playoff match was drawn, Reshevsky advanced, due to having better Sonnenborn-Berger tiebreak points (precisely the method that was deemed unsuitable in 1948.

  • Panno, of Argentina had been scheduled to play, but cancelled. Bolbochan had also been scheduled to play, but did not arrive. It was later discovered that he had fallen ill en route.
