This is what legends are made of.  The 2nd Piatgorsky Cup goes down in history for witnessing one of the greatest comebacks in our sport.

But then Fischer pulled everything together and started to win game after game!  In the 16th round Fischer managed to catch up with Boris Spassky, but this latter was able to pull ahead half a point in the last round when Bobby could only draw with the world champion, Tigran Petrosian!
