1978.05.06-24. Round Robin 13 rounds. 14 players. Rating average 2353. Category V. GM norm 10. IM norm 8.5. IM title: Rico Mascariñas.

At first the event was in danger of being downgraded to an IM level tournament. A few days before it started, none of the invited GMs had ensured their participation. GM Rosendo Balinas Jr of Philippines couldn’t make to Jakarta. Neither could Belgian GM Albéric O’Kelly. Another GM from Philippines, the flamboyant Eugenio Torre, still enjoyed his honeymoon. GM Miguel Quinteros, who was playing in the 2nd leg in Wellington New Zealand, had to come back immediately to his country, Argentina. According to the then FIDE rules, a GM tournament needed at least 3 players with the GM title.

Balinas couldn’t be bothered further but the organizer successfully made a swift workaround for the other GMs. Quinteros was arranged to play 5 games before the tournament began. Torre agreed to arrive late in Jakarta. Finally the organizer could persuade O’Kelly to participate with a kind help of the FIDE President, Max Euwe.

The Elo favorites Torre and Quinteros were on the driving seat during the tournament. They finally shared the first place. The other GM, O’Kelly, lagged behind. He ended up in the middle. That was understandable since the Belgian GM had already been 67 years old. Rico Mascariñas was the only player who was lucky enough to grab an IM norm. That meant he completed his IM title. Mascariñas registered his first IM norm also in Jakarta (the 2nd Asian Masters 1976).

The accomplishment of the host players bore a big question mark. The highest place for Indonesian players was a veteran IM Arovah Bachtiar in 5th. Other Indonesian players were deep in the rock bottom of the table. Their performances were hard to explain, particularly for IM Ardiansyah and IM Herman Suradiradja. Two months ago Ardiansyah just won the 1st leg in Baguio, Philippines. Suradiradja was the newest addition to Indonesian IMs. He was soon to be the first Indonesian GM after a huge success in Eastern Europe.
