Since I've just been defending Blacks position,
I decided to take a look and see what white has.
39. Rb6 Qc7
white has the interesting:
This gives black many places to go wrong.
41.Qxe6+ Kg7 42.f4 Rb2+ 43.Kh3 Rb8 44.f5 gxf5
45.exf5 Kh8 46.Bc2 Ba3 47.Be4
Notice the a4 bishop is active again.
This type of position tends to not turn out well for black.
It seems best play is:
41.Qxe6+ Kg7 42.f4 Rb2+ 43.Kh3 Rb8 44.f5 Kh8
45.g4 Rd8 46.Kh2 Qd6 47.Qxc4 Qd3 48.Qe6 Qe2+
49.Kh1 Qf3+ =
When black has to take a perpetual, white's queen threats
on e5 along the the bishop gong to b3 then the queen going to
h8 are too strong.
So it seems even in this complex line black has drawing chances.
(however blacks games seems tougher to play)
I would give Fischer a big edge over the board.

|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 6 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
|Dec-05-13|| ||perfidious: Clever cut-and-thrust play at the climax.|
|Dec-05-13|| ||mysystem: With the deaths of Robert Byrne and Ruben Shocron in 2013, that leaves 11 out of the 42 opponents in "My 60 Memorable Games" still alive (I don't have info on the 1 amateur opponent, Ojars Celle):|
Portisch and Spassky are the youngest (b 1937), Benko is the oldest (b, 1928)

|Dec-30-13|| ||wordfunph: Game Quote:
"Had I known he was going to be world champion, I would have been nervous."
- LM Ruben Shocron
|Dec-30-13|| ||Petrosianic: Shocron was trying to be funny. Fischer was a world championship candidate when this game was played, so the idea of him being champion some day couldn't have come as a complete surprise.|

You missed John Blackstone, he should still be alive. I used to play in tournaments with him and was surprised to find him in there. He was a national master back then with no international rating that I knew of. I don't know about now.
|Dec-30-13|| ||diceman: <You missed John Blackstone>|
There's no Blackstone game in
|Mar-30-14|| ||maxi: What I find most remarkable about this game (apart from the neat tactics involving 40.Bd7) is how strong Shocron's play was throughout it. The opening and middle game were played flawlessly (albeit perhaps a bit passively). He managed to keep Fischer at bay and even at the very end it still was an even game. But 38.Ra6 posed Shocron too difficult a problem. He had to play 38...Qd7, a difficult move to find. Aftr it White has three dangerous discoveries with its Rook (Rb6,Rxc,Ra6), and all had to be analysed. And that was his undoing, as he played instead the flawed 38...Qd8.|
|Apr-05-14|| ||maxi: I meant 38.Rc6!|
|Mar-12-16|| ||cwcarlson: In MSMG (1969 first edition) Bobby gives 38...Qd7 39.Kh2 Rb1 40.Rc4 Qd3 41.Rc8+ Kg7 42.Qh4 Bg5! 43.43.Bg5 Rh1+ 44.Kh1 Qf1+ with a perpetual, but 43...Ng5 44.Qg5 Qe4 wins! White holds with 40.Rb6 or 40.Ra6.|
|Mar-12-16|| ||morfishine: <CG> Please erase "Shockin' Shocron" as a title for this game'|
This is just another insult in a long list of insults for game titles
|Mar-12-16|| ||Joshka: Also in Bobby's notes from 2007, he throws in a little tidbit from his close friend Eugene Torre! after 27...a5 "Eugene Torre once showed me a wild line beginning with 27. Kh3!? Qxg4+ 28. Kxg4 that was supposedly being discussed on some online discussion board by a correspondence chess player. I can't imagine anyone making such a move over-the-board."|
|Feb-16-17|| ||red1728A: The position after 20. g5 only appears twice in the database. Both Fischer victories from "My 60 Memorable Games."|
Fischer remarked on how well Shocron defended until 38...Qd8. 39...Qc8 may have been the saving move if not for 40. Bd7. That's why the game was titled, "A Small Oversight."
|Jan-17-19|| ||Saniyat24: Robert rubs Ruben the wrong way...!|
|Jan-17-19|| ||Saniyat24: 23.g3...!|
|Jan-17-19|| ||Saniyat24: 28...Ra8 might have been better keeping the Black Queen centralized.|
|Jan-17-19|| ||RookFile: With 26....cxb3 you can actually argue about who is better. Black is very much in the game.|
|Jan-17-19|| ||Saniyat24: but then White's light squared bishop would have been a nagging threat for the Black King...?!|
|Jan-17-19|| ||Saniyat24: I tried Stockfish recommendation for White, and tried my hand as Black after 22...Ra8 making some weird knight moves to make it interesting, but by move 44 reached a position where it is checkmate for White in further 9 moves...|

|Jan-17-19|| ||Granny O Doul: <There's no Blackstone game in
I demand a refund.
|Jan-18-19|| ||Saniyat24: I want to see the cover of that book, it's not readily available here in Bangladesh. ....but I do have John Nunn and Graham Burgess written The Main Line King's Indian. I am gathering up the courage to play with that opening with black pieces...|

Some great KI games are the ones between Gligoric and Fischer. I especially like the line in
Gligoric vs Fischer, 1970
This line or a similar one also had a slight mention by Petrosian in the book "Petrosian's Legacy" and "How to Open a Chess Game" where he basically summed it up "...with sharp play."
