Bobby Fischer's Scoresheet from Siegen Olympiad

In this game, the last game between Fischer and Spassky before the 1972 World Championship match, Fischer as Black attacked strongly and seemed to have won the game, but Spassky almost as if by luck found resources. Fischer resigned facing immediate checkmate.

Fischer had never beaten Spassky and lost again this time. Because of this, many believed that Fischer would not beat Spassky in their world championship match. They were proven wrong, however.
