The book "How to Beat Bobby Fischer" by Edmar J Mednis (Dover Publications, Inc., 1998), which purports to include all of Fischer's lost games from serious tournament and match competition during the period 1958-1972, does not have any game between Fischer and Medina-Garcia, so <drukenknight>'s memory appears to be correct.
|Sep-05-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: With regard to the question of whether Medina-Garcia ever defeated Fischer, the following appears on this page: A Medina-Garcia vs Alekhine, 1945|
"Lawrence: *** Googling around, it turns out that Antonio Medina also won the U.S. open once and beat Fischer several times playing fast games."
