Apr-25-04  Lawrence: White's woes started with 18.Nf1 (Be2) and move by move his position got worse and worse. By move 21 he could have resigned. (Junior 8)
Apr-07-06  DrJekyll: 0-1 playing Fischer with WHT vs The Najdorf OWWWWW!!!!! Good day kind sirs,

  perfidious: This player is Walter Ader Hausman.
Mar-04-12  screwdriver: Ok, so this is a case where white didn't resign too early. I like games that end like this where it's very obvious as to who will win and why. Fischer is up a piece and will queen his e pawn or pawns before white can get his pawns across. I like the way Fischer plays the Nadorf.
Mar-06-12  screwdriver: You can never look through Fischer's games too many times.
Mar-06-12  AnalyzeThis: After 19.... d5, I was surprised that white didn't end up getting mated in the middlegame.
Mar-06-12  King Death: < AnalyzeThis: After 19.... d5, I was surprised that white didn't end up getting mated in the middlegame.>

<RookFile>, you mean that after your penetrating pointless analysis in Keene-Calvo you missed that 23.Qb4 doesn't give Black the chance to go for the king, so that he has to settle for a won endgame?

Apr-02-12  screwdriver: Yea, I don't think it was necessary to mate the king in the middle game. Exchanging the queens on b4 and being a piece up in the endgame looks awfully enticing. At first glance one might think it's 2 minor pieces for a rook only, but then comes the fork on f2! And after white captures on h1, I think even the most elementary chess student would have good results with black.

  Robed.Bishop: Keep it civil, folks. This might be considered one of the historical games considered holy by some.
Aug-09-13  RookFile: I guess white's 21. Bxb5 gave him an opportunity to swap queens and stick around for a few moves.

Sep-05-14  Zugzwangovich: A photo of this game can be seen by doing a Google Image search for Vasily Smyslov. Second row from top, second image from left. The caption mistakenly identifies it as Smyslov-Fischer from the 1959 Candidates Tournament.
