Fischer's Blitz Games at Herceg Novi, 1970
Compiled by OBIT
--*--

This collection contains the 22 games Fischer played at the 1970 Herceg Novi blitz event, certainly the strongest five-minute tournament of the 20th century. The twelve participants were Fischer, Tal, Korchnoi, Petrosian, Bronstein, Hort, Matulovich, Smyslov, Reshevsky, Uhlmann, Ivkov, and Ostojic. Fischer utterly dominated this super-strong field with a 19-3 score (17 wins, four draws, and one loss), 4 1/2 points better than 2nd place finisher Tal. This result makes a compelling argument that Fischer is the strongest blitz player of all time.
