Varna Olympiad

Wolfgang Uhlmann vs. Bobby Fischer

Varna - 1962

A 19 move draw, but one with a famous story behind it. At the time this game was played, there was a rule in force prohibiting draws by agreement before Move 30. When Fischer agreed to one, the Russians eagerly seized on the opportunity to try to have him forfeited. Mr. Congiality fired back with the shot heard round the (chess) world: "That rule is for the Communist cheaters, not me!"
