Fischer's early record I'm trying to find some information on Bobby Fischer's record for the year 1958. Specifically his record in a tournament held in Yugoslavia of that year. To be even more specific I'm looking for his results against a player by the name of Matanovic in that tournament. Can anyone provide a link to this specific tournament or outcome? His or Matanovic's final scores? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hmmm... I still have a lot to learn about Chessbase... the crosstable only pulled out the games with Fischer. Anyways, check out this page for the full crosstable and information about the tournament:$iix.htm

Thanks zucan. That link was exactly what I was looking for. I'm trying to authenticate a piece of Fischer memorabilia. This info helps a great deal. Appreciated.
