Fischer vs Reshevsky Match
Compiled by wanabe2000
--*--

Robert James Fischer vs Samuel Reshevsky in New York and Los Angeles. Fischer withdrew after Rd.11 with the score even at (+2-2=7).

Iron Maiden comments on the stoppage of play. "The organizers chose to move a game to an early hour when it turned out that one of their sponsors couldn't attend it at the normal time. Fischer, as with most chess players, was a late riser. He refused to play and was forfeited. After that, he refused to continue the match. It was the first major dispute that Fischer ever had with "the powers that be."

Rookfile counters. "It was just as inconvenient for the older man to show up at 11 am, maybe more so. Yet the old warrior showed up and was ready to fight, with the black pieces, at an inconvenient time for him".
