|Aug-28-04|| ||wall: Another game with bishops of opposite color that draws. White is up a pawn. Maybe 21.c5 opened up the game too soon for White. 21.Kf2 looks playable. If Black is trying to draw quickly, maybe 33...Kd7 is faster in getting a pawn back. |
|Aug-28-04|| ||clocked: After 21.c5 why can't black just take it? |
|Aug-28-04|| ||Chessical: <Clocked> Indeed, Fischer would not seem to have any advantage after: |
<21...dxc5> 22.Rd7 Kf8 23.Rxb7 Rxd1+ 24.Bxd1 Rd8 25.Be2 Rd2 26.Bxa6 Rxa2.
|Aug-28-04|| ||clocked: <Chessical> I was thinking 21...Rxc5 |
|Feb-02-08|| ||Benzol: Why did Fischer play 22.Kf2 when he could have played 22.cxd6?
Is the gamescore correct?|
|Feb-02-08|| ||MichAdams: I didn't even know Fischer gave a simul in Havana in 1956.|
|Feb-02-08|| ||Benzol: <MichAdams> There even exists a photograph of the young Fischer giving a simul at the Capablanca Chess Club in Havana in 1956.|
|Feb-06-08|| ||ketchuplover: Looks like he was in a rush.|
|Apr-21-10|| ||wwall: Instead of 46.Kb7, perhaps better is 46.Kb5 and if 46...Bd8 47.Kxb4 looks like a win. |
After 48...Bd8, perhaps White can win after 49.Bb3, and if 49...h4, then 50.Bd5.

Fischer gave a 12 board exhibition at the Capablanca Chess Club, finishing with a score of +10, =2.
|Dec-13-16|| ||machuelo: Fischer lost against Josť Arango, who in 1962 took part in the World Students Championship in Marianzke Lazne as part of the Cuban team. Dr. Arango live in Havana actually.|
|Dec-13-16|| ||machuelo: Sorry, I mean Fischer make a draw in his game against Josť Arango.|
|Jan-13-17|| ||Tabanus: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/... tells about the Log Cabin Chess Club incl. Fischer visiting Havana in February 1956.|
The Cuban newspaper Diario de la Marina, 26 Feb 1956 p. 5-B has a short report here (under Ajedrez): http://ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00001565/0207....
|Mar-28-17|| ||MissScarlett: <Why did Fischer play 22.Kf2 when he could have played 22.cxd6? Is the gamescore correct?>|
<The primary source for this game, David Levy's <How Fischer Wins>, gives the score as 21...Kg7 22.Kf2 Rc6. This would mean that both players overlooked the simple 22.cxd6. We tend to think the sequence given [21...Rc6 22.Kf2 Kg7] is more logical.>
