The 1970 Interzonal was held in Palma de Mallorca from November 9-December 12, and was the last Interzonal held as a one-section round robin. With the tournament swelling to 24 players and further expansion on the way, future changes were inevitable. The following players vied for six slots in the candidates matches to be held in 1971: William G Addison, Miroslav Filip, Robert James Fischer, Efim Geller, Svetozar Gligoric, Vlastimil Hort, Robert Huebner, Borislav Ivkov, Eleazar Jimenez Zerquera, Bent Larsen, Milan Matulovic, Henrique Mecking, Dragoljub Minic, Renato Naranja, Oscar Panno, Lev Polugaevsky, Lajos Portisch, Samuel Reshevsky, Jorge Alberto Rubinetti, Vasily Smyslov, Duncan Suttles, Mark Taimanov, Wolfgang Uhlmann, Tudev Ujtumen. At the banquet, Fischer was awarded the Chess Oscar, and the draw was held for the quarterfinal pairings: Larsen - Uhlmann Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) Petrosian - Hübner Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) Korchnoi - Geller Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) Fischer - Taimanov Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) In case of withdrawals (which did not happen), the 7th place (and first reserve spot) between Portisch and Smyslov was decided at the Portoroz Candidates Reserve Playoff (1971). The Sousse Interzonal (1967) was the previous qualifier and the Petropolis Interzonal (1973) and Leningrad Interzonal (1973) were the next in the FIDE qualifier cycles.
