Fischer Wade in Ruy Lopez Marshall

My game on the Wade Defence 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 Bg4 led me to wonder. What interesting game did International Master Robert G. Wade play that I might like to look at? I found one against Bobby Fischer in the Ruy Lopez Marshall Attack.

In 1965 Fischer accepted an invitation to play in Havana at the Capablanca Memorial Tournament. However, the US State Department would not allow it. Fischer played from a little room in the Marshal Chess Club. Games were played by teletype with Bobby in New York and his opponents in Cuba. This arrangement made for very long games.

Bob Wade co-authored a book on the Ruy Lopez Marshall Attack. He was a great source of chess information. When Bobby Fischer prepared for Boris Spassky, Frank Brady tells us in his book "Endgame" that Bob Wade sent Fischer two loose leaf notebooks. They had analysis on Spassky's openings, one book with each color.
