The game was played in the famous chess club named after Frank Marshall. The players were sitting at a table which once belonged to Jose-Raul Capablanca, and after his death it became a property of the club. After that, in 1965 it was used by Fischer who took part in a tournament in Havana but remotely, his moves were made using the telephone.
