Pawn Sacrifice - DVD Give Away

"Pawn Sacrifice", the dramatic retelling of the Fischer v Spassky Match from 1972, has just been released on DVD in Australia. As it did not get a cinema showing in this country, getting it on DVD is your first chance to see this highly regarded film. And to make it easier for one lucky reader I have a DVD of the movie to give away, courtesy of Entertainment One (the Australian distributors).
To have a chance of winning the DVD you need to answer the following question about Bobby Fischer

Between 1972 and 1992 Fischer played no tournament chess. But during that time he allegedly played a blitz match against a GM and crushed him 19-1. Who was the alleged GM?

If you know the answer, email me at and put "Pawn Sacrifice Competition" in the subject (Please don't answer in the comments btw). I'll take entries up until midnight on the 29th February and then choose at random from the correct answers.
(NB This competition is open only to Australian residents)
