REYKJAVIK, Iceland--Bobby Fischer forfeited his chess game with world champion Boris Spassky of Russia on Thursday by failing to appear at the playing hall.
Fischer boycotted the game because he objected to the presence of movie cameras in the hall.
The forfeit gave Spassky, who best Fischer on Wednesday, a 2-0 lead in the scheduled 24-game series. It was uncertain whether the match would survive.
The American chess champion objected to the presence of the cameras, though he could neither see them nor hear them in the darkness of the 2500-seat auditorium.
