The Dallas 1957 chess tournament was played in Hotel Adolphus in Dallas, then the tallest building in Texas, from November 30 to December 16, 1957. The main event was a contest among eight players from seven countries. Three Polish-born grandmasters participated; Samuel Reshevsky, Miguel Najdorf and Daniel Yanofsky. Unfortunately, David Bronstein from the Soviet Union got no visa for a visit to Texas. Pal Benko defeated Ken Smith in a match that was played as a side event. The time control was 40 moves in two hours, followed by 20 moves in one hour. A bulletin was published for each round, and Isaac Kashdan functioned as commentator. Svetozar Gligori and Samuel Reshevsky tied for first with 8.5 of 15 and shared 1750 each; Laszlo Szabo and Bent Larsen shared third through fourth a full point behind. Daniel Yanofsky held sole fifth with 7 points. Friðrik Ólafsson captured sixth a half point behind followed by Miguel Najdorf a full point behind and Larry Evans in sole 8th at 5 points.
