|Feb-25-07|| ||Knight13: Jimenez-Zerguera has the <Overall record: +5 -53 =40 (25.5%)*>. It's very surprising that he drew Fischer in 1970!|
|Mar-10-08|| ||GM Arencibia: A little act of justice:
Eleazar Jimenez Zerquera was several times Cuban Champion,a very strong IM,this game was one of the 3 or 4 draws that he made against Fischer(I'm not pretty sure, but 2 draws at least)I knew him in person and as a player as well, and...he was stronger than the number of his games in this database shows¡
In Cuba many people expected him as the next cuban gran master after the great Capablanca, but his style was too conservative. He had a good tecnique in the endgame.
|Mar-10-08|| ||Peter Nemenyi: EJZ placed last of twenty-four at Palma, yet managed draws against the top three finishers. You won't see that a lot. Evidently he saved his best drawing technique for his strongest opponents.|
|Apr-11-08|| ||safar: It seems that Bobby wanted an early and easy day! He seems to exchange pieces and go for a simple position hoping perhaps to outplay his opponent. But the position becomes too simple!|
|Jan-19-09|| ||piroflip: my database shows 37. Rd8 as being played my Jimenez.|
I guess it must be wrong as it probably loses.
|Dec-29-10|| ||howian1: Fritz shows the straightforward 39. a2 as winning for Jimenez.|
|Jan-08-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Was this photo taken at this game, or during Fischer vs E Jimenez-Zerguera, 1966?|
|Feb-19-17|| ||machuelo: Eleazar drew three times with Fischer and lost only one game, during Chess Olympics of 1966. From where Knight13 took the 'overal record +5 -53 =40? Most probably the first game (or games) Jimenez-Fischer was in 1956 during a rapid transit match between the Log Cabin Chess Club of New Jersey and the Capablanca Chess Club of Havana. Both face each other four times but a chronicle of the match by Carlos A. Palacio (El Mundo, Havana, February 28, 1956) does not mention the individual results, just the overall results: 24 to 7 in favor of the Capablanca Club. But a close friend of Jimenez, the Cuban chess expert Jesús Suárez, remember that Jimenez told him how strong was Fischer and how well he played the Kings Indian Defense|
|Feb-19-17|| ||Howard: 39.a2 is hardly a legal move!|
|Feb-19-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Yeah, but it's winning!|
