Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-04  iron maiden: On move 9, Black should probably have left the rook on f8. 9...Bd7 10. e5 Ne8 followed by 11...f6 is a good center attack.
Sep-10-04  wall: 32...Bd3 looks wrong when Black must defend. Perhaps 32...Qd8 or 32...Kh8.

In the game, if 33...Nxf6, 34.Nxf6+ Kh8 35.g4 Nd4 36.Ne4 Ne2+ (36...Qd8 37.Rxc5) 37.Kh2 Qd8 38.Rxc5

  Mateo: <AlexanderMorphy: outclassed by fischer!> Well, this is not so clear. Feuerstein missed 28... Qb6. I guess Fischer would have nothing better than a draw: 29. Nf6 Nf6 30. Qf6 Nh6 31. Rd6 Qb3 32. Rd8 Rd8 33. Qd8 Kg7 34. Qf6, draw.
Nov-10-07  smarterthanbobby: fischer busted him down to the end
game like he did 90% of the time.

  Petrosianic: 90%? Fischer played 4 games with Feuerstein, three of which were draws. So, that makes 25%, not 90.
Nov-10-07  RookFile: <Mateo: Mateo: <AlexanderMorphy: outclassed by fischer!> Well, this is not so clear. Feuerstein missed 28... Qb6. I guess Fischer would have nothing better than a draw: 29. Nf6 Nf6 30. Qf6 Nh6 31. Rd6 Qb3 32. Rd8 Rd8 33. Qd8 Kg7 34. Qf6, draw.>

But it would appear that Fischer could play 29. Nd2 instead.

Nov-12-07  zev22407: What is wrong with 34)Nxe8 instead of 34)g4 as played? 34)Nxe8 Rxe8 35)Nd6 and white wins.
Nov-13-07  smarterthanbobby: funny how some players count draws,
is that really why you study chess?
Dec-17-09  BISHOP TAL: This open is in the new in chess, under Bobby Fischer opens.It says arthur could of punished him with 3 d5 instead he allowed him to transpose into what later became the main line.I dont see the big deal wether he plays d5 on the 3rd move or the 4th.
Jan-04-11  cyclingfrank: Though tricky 19.... Nd5 might halt the king side attack by driving the bishop back and activating the dead piece on c7. Any thought's out there??
Oct-04-11  AlforChess: Actually, Arty was even against Fischer. A.F. beat B.F in the Greater NYC Open in 1956--so they're 1-1 with three draws. And yes, draws count too. If I had a tourney draw against Bobby, I would have a tattoo.
