|Oct-22-05|| ||Eastfrisian: He is a FM and is born in the year 1930. Walther seems to be no more an active player.|
|Jan-10-13|| ||Cemoblanca: E Walther vs Fischer, 1959|
I think this game should be a "Notable Game". OK, he missed some winning chances, but nevertheless, it was a great achievement. :)
|Sep-09-13|| ||Caissanist: If you think a game should be a notable game then you need to put it in a collection. "Notable games" are autogenerated from people putting them in collections. I'm surprised that hasn't already happened, since there are several collections of Fischer's M60MG here.|
|May-22-22|| ||louispaulsen88888888: Yes he is definitely not an active player.|
|May-22-22|| ||louispaulsen88888888: M60MG. Took me awhile to figure that out.|
