After completing three of the scheduled eight games, the score is one win apiece and an adjourned game in which Fischer has a favorable position. In the third game, the most exciting of the series to date, Fischer played the Sicilian De-fpns After an advance on the Queen side he won a Pawn and seemed to have all the better of the game. Fischer continued to play for material advantage and on his 30th turn took another Pawn. Cardoso had been quietly preparing for an onslaught against the King and Fischer's loss of time gave him the opportunity for a decisive mating attacK.
