After Robert Fischer failed to appear in (Game 2) over a disagreement about the presence of cameras in the playing hall, Boris Spassky was awarded a forfeit win leaving the score: Robert Fischer (0) and Boris Spassky (2). However if Spassky had not aknowledged Fischer's demands, he would've won the World Chess Championship easily, but Spassky decided to try and win by playing, not forfeiture... He then had a mental blunder, so Fischer (7W-11D-1L) proved to be unstoppable in the next Game and in the following Games, and would eventually become the 11th World Chess Champion!!! Now on to the Game: Benoni Defense: Knight's Tour Variation was used...
