Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-27-02  drukenknight: Fischer playing from memory, seems to walk into one in this game.

Why the hell is his N doing on a3 anyhow?

In the opening, Rosetto misses a number of tactical shots that he should have taken, (look at moves 11, 13 and 17). But anyhow he still manages to get into a pretty good endgame. THey said at the adjournament it was still touch and go.

Fischer's biographer OConnell/Wade say that 32...RxR might be good, giving a line of analysis 12 moves deep that leads to godknowswhat. I dunno, somewhere in the end game he loses it.

Nov-28-02  pawntificator: playing from memory? Was it a blindfold match?
Nov-29-02  PVS: Buenos Aires 1960 was incontrovertibly the nadir of Fischer's playing career.

  refutor: > Why the hell is his N doing on a3 anyhow?'s called 'opening theory'...try opening any book on the sicilian ;)

Aug-03-03  rafabomb69: This a clasical game of Sveshnikov´s Sicilian defense(B33), however the game of black turns into a variation (9...d5)where white can get some positional advantage.

There is also a game where black changes the queen on this database

Leonid Stein vs Pal Benko
Caracas (Venezuela) 1970 · Sicilian (B33) · 1-0

but even in it, white has a little advantage.

the other variation is (9...f5 10.Qh5)

  kbob: I have always found it odd that the move d5 was considered such a stunning novelty for black when Petrosian played it in his candidates match with Fischer, since Fischer had already faced the move in this game playing with a tempo less. (Petrosian's bishop was already on e6).
Jul-02-14  zydeco: <drukenknight> The line is to play 32.....Rxh6, then black brings his king to the e-file, white brings his king to g7 and pushes the h-pawn. When the pawn gets to h7, black plays .....Nh8!!, and after Kxh8 Kf7. White can't extricate his king, and, despite his pawn plus, he can't create an additional passed pawn.
