GHESS r RESHEVSKY TIES AT 814-514 WITH GLIGORIC ' Samuel Reshevsky of Spring Valley, N.Y., and Svetozar GlW gortc of Yugoslavia tiea jor nrsi with scores of Stt&Ji In the hard-fought eight-master International Chess Tournament al the Hotel Adolphus in Dallas. . Both winners started poorly and made up ground by persistent play In the later rounds. Reshevsky lost in the second round to Fridrik Olafsson of Iceland and trailed through the first half of the tournament. Gligoric was even worse off, after a defeat by Laszlo Szabo of Hungary and five draws in his first six rounds. By the ninth round, however,1 the eventual winners were ahead of the field. Reshevsky was to suffer another loss in a well-played game by Daniel A. Tanofsky of Winnipeg, Can. Gligoric advanced more consist ently but had two more draws than Reshevsky to make up Tjie same total. Third place was also a tie, at 7VS-6VZ, between Bent Lar sen of Denmark and Szabo Laewen scored three wins and a draw in the first four games to lead by a full 'point at that stage. He still led at the half way mark, with 4V2-2Vi, but two successive losses, to Miguel Najdorf of Argentina and Gligoric, dropped him out of top contention. : Szabo had the most uniform score of the tournament, with two wins, one loss and no less than 11 draws. Most of these were hard-fought battles. Among them were two difficult Queen and Pawn endings against Reshevsky, in each of which Szabo had the advantage but could not force the win. The prizes were distributed In a closing ceremony by Emile Z, Gilutin, chairman of Dallas International Chess Tourna' merits, Inc., a nonprofit corpora tion wnicn organized the event. The top prizes were $2000, $1300, $1000 and $500. Nonprize winners were awarded $30 for each point' scored. In addition all the players received full traveling and living expenses during the play. - Your editor directed the tournament, which turned out to be a relatively simple task as there were no disputes and only one forfeit had to be called. Following are the results of the last three rounds and Some. Interesting games. The full cross table at the bottom of the column shows the points after the first half and the final totals.'

Szabo came to Dallas and that seemed to be the end of this particular story for Benko, Then Kenneth Smith of Dallas, former champion of Texas challenged Benko to a seven game match. The Dallas tour nament committee seized on this offer, put up a prize of S250 for the winner and agreed to take Benko's ex penses during the match. Benko won the match by a margin of but the encounter was closer than the score would Indicate. In the first game Smith had a winning ending when he miscalculated the remaining time on his clock and lost on time on the TOth move. The other games were all hard fought. An example is the difficult Queen and Kook ending in the following battle.
