1964 Fischer simul exhibition tour
Compiled by gauer
--*--

under construction

In January of the new year, the only other Robert James Fischer game to appear in the database had been Saidy vs Fischer, 1964 - played as Auld Lang Syne welcomed 1964 in with the US Championship (1963/64) finishing with a stunning clean-sweep, and the 6th title for the exhibition of the win.

The attempt in this collection is to primarily arrange his games by a date played in each city, and to then perhaps order them by result.

February

9 Detroit
15 Rochester
20 Waltham
23-4 Montreal (see http://canbase.fqechecs.qc.ca/hist6... gives site as Sir George Williams University in Montreal - 5 losses and 3 draws meant that 8 players received a subscription to "American Chess Quarterly"; gave a 10 board clock-simul ($15 to play, $1 to watch), winning all 10 games; another (regular, cost $5 to play; $1 to watch) simul was reported to be 56 players; not much information in the link was apparently provided about the 25 February event...)

25 Quebec (Quebec (city?!), or perhaps elsewhere in the province; probably not Montreal)

27 Toronto

March

1 Westerly
2 Fitchburg
3 Hartford
5 Richmond
8 Washington DC
15 Pittsburgh
18 Cleveland
19 Toledo
22-3 Chicago
26 New Orleans
28 Houston
29 Little Rock

April

4 Wichita
8 Ogden
12 Hollywood
13 San Francisco
15 Sacramento
16 Davis
18 Santa Barbara
19 Santa Monica

April or May Denver

May
3 Cheltenham
4 New York
10 Boston
14 Milwaukee
16 Flint
18 Columbus
20 Cicero
24 New York

Perhaps some information can be tracked down on the player Jeff Reubens - or at least where/when the game Fischer vs J Reubens, 1964 was played. Fischer vs C M Bedford, 1964 seems to be related to his week or so stay in California, and perhaps more details (where/when) of it exist as well. Fischer vs J Wallace, 1964 (kibitz #4) has provided a few details about the history of the tour (see other posts around this time by User: TheFocus as well), including the Denver portion (see http://billpriceweb.com/fischer.html and the other Denver games) of the trip, along with other stops along the legs. Hopefully the dates are somewhat accurate, as some of the pgn content had dates updated, missing (in some of the cases) or corrected, and there doesn't seem to be much reason to seriously doubt the reported total scores for each city as well.

Consideration had also been given to splitting the collection into cities (like the Game Collection: 1960 Koltanowski 56-board blindfold-simul performance, but which <does> have 29/64 games present), but it might be more interesting to see the simul games of this year collected by year, rather than by city.

http://www.amazon.ca/Legend-Road-Fi... by John William Donaldson is bound to have much more information.
