Daily Rome Shot 506, etc.

Today, 50 years ago, was Game 3 of the Spassky-Fischer Match.  The score was 2-1 Spassky.

The other day, Fischer failed to show for the game and forfeited, Game 2.

On 15 July Fischer was still massively complaining about the sound of cameras.  There were various contracts signed.  Fisher had made at least three flight reservations to leave.

Spassky agreed to play in the ping-pong room.  Fischer still bitched about various things, pretty much constantly.  He would gripe about boards, saying that the squares had to be reduced from 2.25 inches to 2.125 inches.

Fisher, 10 minutes late, won this with black game in 41 moves.  The Benoni was on the board.

Please remember me when shopping online. Thanks in advance. US HERE – UK HERE

Today, I received a super cool “travel” chess board from a reader.  There was no slip so I don’t know who you are.  It very cool and I am tempted to take it on a trip this next week to a priests’ conference.  Thank you.

    JMJ+ I’m praying for all in Chicago, but especially those belonging to St. John Cantius. That’s been my go to Church even before the Covid paranoia started. Living in the metropolitan area of Washington, D. C., Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, does not offer much for Traditional Catholics. We are scrounging for faithful Priests…..the same as the poor living under the dictatorship of Archbishop Cupich. I couldn’t believe that Jorge could wave his pen and eliminate our Carmelite Sisters. With their lineage going back further than St. Teresa of Avila you’d think that would give them a fair amount of street creds…..but then, our Traditional Latin Mass, goes back to approximately 400 or 500 A.D, and the Decalogue goes back at least 4,000 years but Jorge thinks they are “iffy.” I wonder who or what he actually gives any credence to? Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known…………….amen Dear GOD, have mercy on us……amen
