Is 4-0 really a 'Fischer score'?

I believe that a Fischer score simply refers to a 100% victory in a match, but correct me if I'm wrong.

It's supposed to be a 6-0 score generally, isn't it? Because he won against Larsen and Taimanov by that scoreline in the candidate matches, on his way to becoming world champion?

I'm not sure a Saturday night is the best time to put the marathon on, most people usually go out. But, I'm not sure what time would be better, possibly a Sunday night, but starting at 5pm so little kids can go to be on time.

The last one was also on a Saturday night, this timeslot gives it the advantage of following the Allegro, allowing for a few last minute entries.

Jack, you can take me off the list of maybes ... too tired, too slow & too much chess in the last few weeks for a night of 2 minute madness for me ... best of luck to those who play!
