The shortest game in history - Guiness record

ebillgo

 Guiness Records are full of pointless entries. Some are irksome: the longest fingernails etc. The record game here is also pointless. When a record is so easy to achieve, what 's the point  ?  A more meaningful example is the longest winning streak etc.

This is a rough translation from a norwegian Guinness book of Records, from 1968:

The shortest game ever registered between two grand masters, was in four moves. Lazard defeated Gibaud in a chess cafè in Paris in 1924.

 

INCORRECT - it would be the 2nd match game between Fischer and Spassky. One move was played by spassky and fischer resigned by failure to show before the clock fell.

Actually they weren't grandmasters because the title wasn't officially awarded by FIDE until 1950
