  Benzol: Bob Wade helped Fischer with his preparation for his matches in both 1972 and 1975.

  IMlday: 12..Nd8!? intending 13.Nf1 Kh8 meets Bg5 with Ng8 keeping the pieces behind the pawn wall. I prepared this improvement in 1983 but only got to try it in D Howell vs L Day, 2006 played at the Staunton Memorial where Bob was directing. I mentioned it to him after but he had forgotten this experience against the young Fischer.

  tpstar: Another unused gem from the Pun Contest - not mine. =)

Great pun, and great game.

  offramp: Fischer would've been 17 but Wade probably wasn't very old either...
Jul-18-12  newzild: <offramp: Fischer would've been 17 but Wade probably wasn't very old either...>

My countryman was already aged about 39 at the time of this game. He died quite recently, having seemingly been around forever.

Jul-18-12  blaziken: Ngg4!!,there was a puzzle and the engine shpwed another answer.i dont remember the ans????

Jul-18-12  lemaire90: Was there a way to avoid trading the black queen for a rook + kngiht ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <lemaire90> No, because Nh6+ spells ruination.
May-07-14  sicilianhugefun: Which book pertaining to Fischer's games that can be considered the most instructive?
Premium Chessgames Member
  parisattack: Several, of course. Two of my favorites:

Bobby Fischer: His Approach to Chess by Agur

The Chess of Bobby Fischer by Burger

Premium Chessgames Member
  Sally Simpson: The Agur book is good, don't have the other one.

'Bobby Fischer Rediscovered' by Soltis.
is an excellent and entertaining read.

May-07-14  Zuainedison: I dont understand the blaziken suggestion, its impossible in chess NGG4, also dont say when its posible to do.

I checked and Wade was 56 at the time of this game. So he was quite a veteran.

May-07-14  sicilianhugefun: Thanks Parisattack... I am really planning of obtaining the book written by Eli Agur..
