  Benzol: One of the very rare games where he opened with 1.d4
Sep-21-11  piroflip: WOW!!!!!!!

A Fischer loss and no comments from ugi and the rest of the anti Bobby brigade.

Sep-21-11  ughaibu: My apologies. Where shall we begin?
Jun-24-13  The Rocket: Fischer played this like a 1500 player.
Jun-24-13  The Rocket: Oh, I see he missed Bxf3, Qf6! o well, still bad game:)
Sep-09-14  Ke2: what the??? kind of goes to show how much strength of pros is in opening

  Garech: Is this game actually verified? It does not seem like Fischer at all. Especially opening with 1.d4 - can anyone explain?


Jul-18-16  siggemannen: Can it be that Fischer was black here?
Sep-29-16  Gottschalk: Game played in Seville, Spain or Ohio?

  Domdaniel: Very dubious. Not at all Fischerlike ... maybe he was black, as <siggemannen> suggests. After dropping a couple of pawns for no good reason, white tries some crude and obvious tactics before caving in. I'm no great Fischer fan, but this just doesn't ring true.

"El 23 de Diciembre de 1970 Bobby Fischer se enfrenta a 20 tableros en unas simultáneas organizadas en el Círculo de Labradores de Sevilla. Eugenio Gómez logra vencerle, y Julián Alonso obtiene un meritorio empate ante el astro americano."

I get just so bored with the NUMPTIES in chess who don't get the great RJF.

"On December 23, 1970 Bobby Fischer faces 20 boards in a simultaneous organized in the Circle of Labradors of Seville, Eugenio Gómez manages to beat him, and Julián Alonso gets a worthy tie against the American star."

Apr-15-19  RandomVisitor: From "The unknown Bobby Fischer"

Carlos Almarza-Mato of Leon, Spain, adds to the picture of Bobby in Spain by forwarding the following game from a December 23, 1970, simul in Seville. This was Fischer's only loss in 20 games...

So, this game follows the word of one man...

Apr-15-19  RandomVisitor: 13.h3? and it is all over.
Apr-15-19  RandomVisitor: This game is elsewhere known as Fischer vs NN, USA simul 1970. It seems odd that someone played black in this game and chose to remain anonymous.
