  • Players in Green advanced to the Candidates.

  • Short, Van der Wiel, and Torre tied for the last spot in the Candidates and played off:
                      1    2    3 
    1. Short         xxx  00  111  3-2
    2. Van der Wiel  11  xxx  0  3-2
    3. Torre         000  1  xxx  2-4

  • When Short and Van der Wiel tied in the playoff, the final spot went to Short on tiebreak, because he had a better score against the upper half of the Interzonal field, the difference being his last round victory over Van der Wiel. The fact that he lost to Van der Wiel 2-1 in the playoff didn't matter.

  • In the final round, Short with 9 had needed to defeat Van der Wiel (with 10), and to pray for Torre (10) to lose to Gyula Sax. It all happened, to get him into the playoff.
