  Benzol: I think Fischer's opponent here is Norman Hurttlen.
Feb-02-08  D4n: Why is 15. f3 game over?
Feb-02-08  ounos: White must have been quite a patzer, missing 15. f3. My granny would played that blindfolded, instead of accepting a draw.

The line jokerman posted is the reason he accepted the draw.

15. f3 Nf6
16. exf6 Rxe3
17. fxg7 Kxg7
18. Nd2 Rae8
19. g4 Bd3
