The opener of the richest chess competition in liisfory ad- journed Tuesday night after four hours, 34 minutes of play and 40 moves by each player. The game was to resume Bt 5 p.m. (1 p.m. EDT) with refer- ee Lolhar Sclimid of West Germany making Spassky's 41st move. The Russian wrote it on a slip of paper and handed it to him in a sealed envelope at the adjournment. The two competitors, their seconds r.nd chess enthusiasts (or Fischer: king, bishop and three pawns for Spassky. The match had appeared headed for a draw until Fischer tried lo seize the initiative 01; his 29lh move. The lanky Brooklyn, N.Y., challenger galloped his bishop down a long blsck diagonal lo snatch on unprotected pawn Spassky had offered. A few moves later the bishop was trapped and lost in exchange for two pawns. CALLS IT BLUNDER U.S. grandmaster Robert Byrne said it was a blunder and commented: "Fischer is going to havo trouble to make a draw. I don't see how Spassky can lose."

Spassky, who had the first move, is playing Ihe white pieces, Fischer the black. Fischer has played Spassky five times in the past, losing all three limes he played the black pieces and getting draws both times he played while. But London bookies have made the 29-year-old American the 6-lo-4 favorite over the 35 year-old Russian in the 24-game championship. A draw counts half a point and a win a point. To dethrone Spassky, Fischer needs points while the Russian can re- tain his crown with 12 points. The winner will get In prize money, the loser and in addition they will divide equally an estimated from film and television sales. The second game of the match is scheduled for Thurs- day and the third Sunday. The contest may last two months.
