Fischer Miniature

I recently came across a Kindle book by National Master Paul Powell for a book titled Bobby
Fischer 60 More Memorable Games for $3.99.

From the publisher’s blurb: Fresh look at Fischer's games Character illustrations of famous chess players Over 90 additional games from Fischer’s opponents Geared towards helping you think about chess not memorize it Concepts to challenge your perceptions Theory of “Diminishing and Increasing Values” Worth $3.99. 

Here’s a miniature by Fischer with notes based on Powell’s. Also, here’s a link to Lapiken. Lapiken was one of those journeyman masters who never got much recognition, but was a very strong player.

Seated at table L-R: Viesturs Seglins (Seattle, WA) and Ben Greenwald (Salt Lake City, UT). Spectators are L-R: Dr. Peter Lapiken (Missouls, MT) and Viktors Pupols (Seattle, WA). Photo was taken at the 1958 Idaho Open, won by Lapiken.
