  OhioChessFan: Is Harris Walter a famous movie star or something? Fishcer sure wasn't making much of an effort to win.
Jul-14-05  Darklight: His name is backwards here. Walter Harris was one of the first African American chess masters.
Feb-19-07  popski: Indeed, strange Fischer performance?!
Feb-19-07  Swyp: "New York simul 1958." Perhaps he had other games on his mind.
Jan-20-08  fischeranian: for a 15 years old Fischer playing simuls, I think the game is okay, His rival plays fine and Fischer just doesnt come up with any of his superb ideas

  Benzol: According to Lou Hays book this was part of a live TV simul and played on the 11th of May.
Jul-11-11  TheFocus: Fischer finished the exhibition with a score of 12 wins and this lone draw.

39.Rxa6 was a mistake; 39.bxa6 gives Bobby an extra Pawn.
