Speaking of Castros, does anybody know if this game attributed to Fidel Castro is legitimate? F Terrazas vs F Castro, 1966

I have read a book by Alberik O'Kelly in which an Olympiad in Cuba is reviewed (I do not remember the Olympiad's number) and this game is presented as an informal one played between them before starting. I do not have the book here, but I remember it quite well.

Sep-24-16  Rookiepawn: By the way, the game is rather poor.
