  Tabanus: Fred or Frank Frilling?, Frank played in Whittier CC (Cal.) in 1969., Whittier Open, Fall 1968: 2 Fred Frililng 5 points, 27 Frank Frilling 2,5 points.

http://xn--80aaa5asd7agcy5a.xn--p1a... has a game Fred Frilling vs Peter Biyiasas.

5/12 in US Open 1969, hmm. Must be Fred?

Oct-03-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: Yowza. I don't think an expert or whatever Watson was at the time goes into the first round of the US Open expecting trouble like that.
Oct-03-19  goodevans: I guess white must have assumed black would just complete the Q trade with <17...Rxa5>. That would have kept the position even.

<17...Nxe3> must have come as a bit of a shock. <17...Rxc2+> would also have been good for black.
