  AylerKupp: Ouch! An obvious oversight, understandable in a simultaneous exhibition. Then again, of all the openings he faced, Fischer seemed to have the most trouble against the French defense.
Sep-05-17  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Couldn't agree more!

If you look at his tournament results for 1970, they are fantastic, yet he lost a game to a lowly-placed master by the name of Kovacevic.

Is it a coincidence that that game was a French Defence, Winawer?

It is astounding how many players played the Sicilian against Fischer or allowed the Ruy Lopez, even though they must have realised that he was an expert in both openings.

Had more players tried the French or Caro-Kann, Fischer's results might have been rather different.
