    All games from 1958 Portoroz Interzonal see capybara's: Game Collection: Interzonals 1958: Portoroz and interesting information from http://www.chessbase.com/columns/co.... The 15 year old Bobby Fischer placed equal 5th with 12 points and qualified for the candidates tournament. The 22 year old Mikhail Tal won with 13.5 points.

    Game Collection: Santiago 1959 by suenteus po 147. An important international tournament for Bobby who finished 4th-6th with (+7-4=1).

    The 22nd Torneo Internacional de Ciudad Mar del Plata was held in Mar del Plata, Argentina from March 23rd to April 10th, 1959. Among the notable participants were sixteen year old grandmaster Bobby Fischer from the United States. Najdorf and Pachman tied for first place with +7 each at the final. Fischer managed to match Pachman's eight wins, but lost an additional game more than the Czech grandmaster, which was only good enough for shared 3rd-4th with grandmaster Ivkov. suenteus po 147's: Game Collection: Mar del Plata 1959.

    Great Tournament collection by suenteus po 147: Game Collection: Zurich 1959. Before the candidates tournament Bobby played in the strong Zurich tournament. He came in equal 3rd with Keres with 10.5 points behind the winner Tal with 11.5 points and Gligoric with 11 points. Bobby's performance was described as "superb".

    Resignation Trap's Game Collection: WCC Index (Candidates Tournament 1959) where a young Bobby Fischer gained valuable international experience. He was disappointed with his 6th place finish out of 8 candidates with 12.5 points in 28 games. Mikhail Tal won the 4 games with Bobby and finished first with 20 points. This would be the last time Tal would beat Fischer.

    Great Tournament collection by suenteus po 147: Game Collection: Mar del Plata 1960. Fischer in 1960 traveled to South America and met the future world champion Boris Spassky in round 2. Boris would win this encounter with the King's Gambit. However, Bobby won 13 games to tie Spassky for first with 13.5 out of 16 games.

    Next was Buenos Aires where the tournament turned out to be the most unsuccessful in Fischer's entire career.

    Selected games from the Bled International Tournament in 1961 are presented. Fischer was undeafeated but finished second with 13.5/19 behind the winner Mikhail Tal who had 14.5/19. This tournament is notable for Bobby's first win over Tal. He also beat Petrosian and Geller. Here is the tournament crosstable and all games: http://www.worldchesslinks.net/ezqa...

    The 1962 Interzonal tournament in Stockholm was a 23-player round robin, with six players qualifying for the Candidates tournament. The winner was Fischer with 17.5/22 (+13 =9 -0) See capybara's :Game Collection: Interzonals 1962: Stockholm

    In 1962 the Candidate's Tournament was held in Curacao to determine the challenger to Mikhail Botvinnik. Fischer placed 4th with 14 points with the winner Petrosian winning with 17.5 points. See Hesam7's: Game Collection: WCC Index (Curacao 1962).

    The Capablanca Memorial was held in Havana in August and September 1965. Fischer came in equal second with 15 points just a half point behind the winner Smyslov. See suenteus po 147's Havana 1965: Game Collection: Havana 1965 for all the games.

    The Piatigorsky Cup was held in Santa Monica in July and August 1966. Spassky edged Fischer by .5 points for first place. Once again Spassky won the individual encounter in the 17th round. See all the games at matey's: Game Collection: Second Piatigorsky Cup 1966

    Monte Carlo 1967 was another important triumph for Fischer as he placed clear first ahead of both Smyslov and Geller, despite dropping a point and a half to both players. Although Smyslov finished undefeated with +4, it was only good enough for clear second behind Fischer. See all the games at suenteus po 147's: Game Collection: Monte Carlo 1967

    Despite the high drama that often came with Fischer's participation he won the International Tournament in Skopje in August 1967 with a score of 13.5 points ahead of Geller and Matulovic with 13 points. See all the games at suenteus po 147's: Game Collection: Skopje 1967

    In October and November 1967 at the Sousse Interzonal Tournament Fischer withdrew after round 12 having a score of 8.5 out of 10.Two games against Stein and Korchnoi are included.

    Nathania 1968 see suenteus po 147's collection where Fischer won: Game Collection: Netanya-A 1968.

    In 1970 the extraordinary "match of the century" was played. In the end, the USSR won by one point over the rest of the world. See all the games at mynameisrandy's: .Game Collection: USSR vs. Rest of the World 1970

    The strongest five-minute tournament of the 20th century was held in Herceg Novi in April 1970. 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. See OBIT's: Game Collection: Fischer's Blitz Games at Herceg Novi, 1970.

    Fischer next played in the Internationl Tournament in Buenos Aires July and August 1970. He won with a dominating, undefeated score of 15/17.

    In November and December 1970 Fischer took Pal Benko's place in the Interzonal Tournament in Palma de Mallorca. Bobby dominated the competition with a score of 18.5/24 only losing to Larsen who came in equal second 3.5 points behind. Fischer thus qualified for the Candidate's Tournament, with a 6 wins and draws not counting format, to face the World Champion Boris Spassky. See all the games at Phoney Benoni's: Game Collection: Interzonal 1970 (Palma de Mallorca).

    The Candidates Quarter-Final, Fischer-Taimanov, Vancouver began in May 1971. The first game began a series of remarkable contests beginning with a 6-0 result against Taimonov.

    The Candidates Semi-Finals, Fischer-Larsen took place in Denver 1971 with Fischer winning 6-0.

    The Candidates Final against Petrosian began in September 1971 in Buenos Aires. Petrosian was defeated in 9 games only winning one game.

See Benzol's Game Collection: Moscow 1935 for all the games.

    <World Championships:>

    After the death of World Champion Alexander Alekhine, Mikhail Botvinnik became the sixth official World Chess Champion by winning the 1948 tournament played in The Hague and Moscow. See the games: FIDE World Championship Tournament (1948).

    He retained the crown in 1951 against David Bronstein when he tied the match, by winning and drawing his last two games. He retained it in 1954 against Vasily Smyslov by again drawing the match, then lost it to Smyslov in 1957. In 1958, he availed himself of the return clause and defeated Smyslov to regain the Title. In 1960 he faced Mikhail Tal and lost the match, but in 1961, again using the return clause, regained it by defeating Tal. In 1963 his reign as World Champion ended for good when he lost to Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian. Since the FIDE had removed the provision of an automatic return match, Botvinnik ceased competing for the World Title.

    Selected Games and Tournament Information.

    No sooner did Mikhail Botvinnik regain his title, the chess world became entranced by charismatic young Latvian named Mikhail Tal who won the 1958 interzonal tournament at Portoroz, then won the World Championship in 1960. Due to WC conditions he had to give a re-match in 1961. Due to health issues he lost the title back to Botvinnik.

    Botvinnik would, finally, lose the title to Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian in 1963. This time there was no provision in the rules for a return match, so Botvinnik retired from world championship competition, leaving Petrosian to hold the title for a full 3-year cycle.

    Petrosian would remain Champion until 1969 when Boris Spassky would win and become Champion. Spassky would lose to Bobby Fischer in 1972.

  18. Fischer vs Reshevsky Match
    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".

    For all Fischer vs Reshevsky games see: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches.... Fischer prevailed with (+10-4=14) record overall.
