11/30/2012 - Bobby Fischer - Arthur Bisguier, NY 1965

Bobby went crazy, stopped playing chess and is no longer with us.

Arthur is still playing every week (Metrowest chess club, Natick MA) and is still quite sane.

I think Arthur won the life contest.

Is this actually how the game played out?  Hard to bellieve that a master would sac rooks just to make the inevitable a few moves further along.

No, the master would resign before, but that's still interesting to play the mate for a puzzle

In fact that's exactly what he did, except in the real game Fischer played Black....
