In the mix #12

This story happened at the Spain vs USA on the 13th Chess Olympiad, Munich 1958. On third board were playing Toran and Bisguier. When the American master resigned, Toran said with a smile, "I am so happy, it is the best present for my birthday!" The opponent replied, "It's all right, today happens to be my birthday too"
