  andrewjsacks: The only three players to score against Fischer (two draws and a win) in this 50-board simul were members of the Steiner Juniors section of the Herman Steiner Chess Club, then located in West Hollywood.

  WannaBe: Need a game from Andrew here, where Sacks sacks a piece and wins a game, that'd be a great pun!

Okay, now the next post on this page won't take place until 2014.

  Phony Benoni: <andrewjsacks> This is a shot in the dark, but I'll try it anyway.

I would like to know the exact identity of White in the game, F Frilling vs J L Watson, 1969. I know that <Frank> and <Fred> Frilling were both active in California in the mid-to-late 1960s, but have no idea which one this is.

Published crosstables for the 1968 and 1969 US Open give only <F Frilling>.. The published crosstable for Boston 1970 does specify <Frank Frilling>, but that's no guarantee he was the player in1968 and 1969.

I know you were active around this time, and played at Boston 1970. Would you have any idea? About the only other fact I know is that Frank was originally from Wisconsin, where he won the Racine City Championship in 1946 and 1947.

(Yes, I know this was fifty years ago and California is a big state. What the heck.)

  andrewjsacks: <Phony Benoni> Sorry it took me so long to notice your post and question(s). Sorry again, but although I ran into the elderly twin Frillings a few times in Southern California tournaments in the early to mid 1960s, I cannot verify that F.
