  Everett: <A restrained hub-bub ensued, with folks squeezing in to see the position and take pictures of kid beating Master (kid 17, Master 20). Fischer went around a few more times and on the next turn pushed the pieces off the board. >

Class, that Fischer.

Apr-23-14  TheFocus: From Holgerson's blog: <Note: My first chess tournament in 11/1962 I beat an expert in 20 moves and got a rating of 1750 (ratings run from about 800 to 2600). After fourty five years of chess study my rating today is 1693.

But, I beat Bobby Fischer.>

  An Englishman: Good Evening: What an insane game. 15...c5!? is the real Knight sacrifice, allowing 16.g5, trapping the Horse. Why didn't Fischer take it? Just being nice to his opponent?
Dec-03-14  TheFocus: From a simul in Sacramento, California on April 15, 1964.

Fischer scored +47=1-2.
