You might want to be a bit more accurate about the source => Waitzkin did not play Bobby Fischer, as far as uncle google + the chessbase megabase can account for.
Though given the puzzle, it appears that you are referring to the final movie game contrived by Josh and Bruce Pandolfini for the movie "Searching for Bobby Fischer". This was a game between Josh and a fictional character called Jonathan Poe. In reality, Josh played Jeff Sarwer in the final round and drew him to share the championship.
Yes, you're right. He didn't play Bobby Fischer, but it was from the movie "Searching from Bobby Fisher". And yes, Josh drew Jeff Sarwer in the last round.
By the way, I thought the king was at d5, not c3. If it was on c3, it would be a draw.
oh sorry my mistake
It would not be draw. After the position you have given just White Queen has to give check on each step and has to approach near the Black King
Black has a pawn on the rook file, so it is a draw. There is no way the white king can approach.
Then why don't you correct the one like that on your profile?
Yes, that is the correct position. White could have still drawn.
black's 7th move would've been kb2
i,ve seen the movie and i remeber that the black king was on d5
where can i find the whole game??
that gives u the real game, i want the "Movie Game"
nice explination by others
On what planet do you expect to find that? If you didn't see the movie, do you really think they showed every single move in a whole (non-miniature) chess game in a mainstream movie? Which is what they would have to have done for there to be a complete score since the game otherwise never happened.
(and if you did see the movie, then you know they didn't show every move, which should lead you to the same conclusion)
it is an AMERICAN MOVIE-do you really think they showed the real game?
Josh's opponent was a 7 YEAR OLD -Jeff Sarwer-from Canada who had a very tough upbringing and lived in a van with his dad and sister(another chess prodigy). He was nothing but a nice kid and he actually tied Waitzkin-check out what really happened on the net. "Rudy' , the 'Hurricane' all movies with lies.
A link was already posted to the real game. Did you really need to revive a two year old thread for an off topic rant?
