Breaking news: Fischer loses first game to Spassky in Reykjavik
Yesterday we reported on the start of the historic World Championship match between Boris Spassky and his challenger Robert Fischer.

Many thought he would make it, but after resumption Spassky played with great precision to win the first game. We ask our readers: could the game have been saved?
