Fischer scored +48=5-4.

  AylerKupp: Ouch! An obvious oversight, understandable in a simultaneous exhibition. Then again, of all the openings he faced, Fischer seemed to have the most trouble against the French defense.
Sep-05-17  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Couldn't agree more!

If you look at his tournament results for 1970, they are fantastic, yet he lost a game to a lowly-placed master by the name of Kovacevic.

Is it a coincidence that that game was a French Defence, Winawer?

It is astounding how many players played the Sicilian against Fischer or allowed the Ruy Lopez, even though they must have realised that he was an expert in both openings.

Had more players tried the French or Caro-Kann, Fischer's results might have been rather different.

  GrahamClayton: If I was Dedinsky, I would have asked Fischer to autograph the scoresheet, and then frame it as a memento.
May-04-20  sudoplatov: Had more topnotch players played the French against Fischer, he would have learned to handle it earlier. By his matches with Larsen and Petrosian, he had figured it out.

"The White Queen Is trapped. On seeing Black's last move Fischer immediately, and with a smile, tipped his Queen." (sic).
