Robert James Fischer recently passed away at the age of 64 (number of squares on a chessboard). In 1964 several members of the Memphis Chess Club went to Little Rock, Arkansas to play Fischer in a simul which consisted of 36 players.
John Hurt, Hunter Weaks, Eddie Middleton, Charles Savery, Troy Armstrong, James Mitchell, and James Wright were players who ventured from Memphis to play the legend who became World Champion in 1972. See lost games played with R.O. Mitchell!
On March 29, 1964 the Little Rock Simul ended with Bobby winning all 36 matches. Here are a few of the games. Our club historian, Dwight Weaver, has been searching for more of these games, which will appear here as soon as possible.
