If they had felt a little more mischievous when they titled the article Excerpts from Fischer-Spassky games

Raymond Chen

In response to the recent passing of chess celebrity Bobby Fischer, the Associated Press published an article titled Excerpts from Fischer-Spassky Games. The article consists of excerpts from the organization’s coverage of the so-called Match of the Century in 1972.

But given the title, I wondered whether the article had merely gone like this:

Game 3: 27. Qd2 Rbe8 28. Re3 h5 29. R3e2 Kh7 30. Re3 Kg8

Game 6: 17. Be2 Nd7 18. Nd4 Qf8 19. Nxe6 fxe6

There you go, excerpts from Fischer-Spassky games.
