This position began on move #58 for White. It appears that Fischer took the three-fold repetition of position because there is no way to advance his King. With my limited Chess experierince, it seems that after 60 Kd4, then 60 -- e3 will win the Rook or the Bishop, therefore the game. You may read about Draws [three-fold repetition of position] at http://fide.com/official/handbook.a... *** in Article 9.2.
Hope this helps.

...What struck me even then was Fischer playing simple endgames.
He conducted the defense irreproachably: 43.g3! and 58.Bd8! -- one can not fault him there; but what also had to be seen was what finesses he demonstrated as we analysed together when the game was over.

Tal comments that, in this tournament, Fischer seemed to improve literally from round to round. He started off struggling with the likes of Fuster and Neikrich. Already, by round 6, he's able to sweat out a draw with Bronstein, even if, admittedly, Fischer was on his back foot throughout the game.
|Aug-10-16|| ||cunctatorg: Why not 39. Qxh4 ?
Perhaps 39. Qxh4 ed4!? 40. Qxf6 d3 41. Qc6 (41. Bd1 Re1 42. Kh2 Rxd1) Re6 (41... Kf8?? 42. Qd6 ) and Black gets a R and a B for White's Q but I can't be positive... and even so I can't evaluate the resulting R+B+4P vs. Q+6P ending...
Well, why not 39. Qxh4 ?!?
|Aug-10-16|| ||beatgiant: <cunctatorg>
Simply 39. Qxh4 Qxh4 40. Rxh4 <Rd8>, followed by...Rd2 looks like it wins back the pawn with a big advantage for Black.
