Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-04  wall: Looks like Fischer was playing for a draw from the beginning. As long as didn't get greedy with 15.Nxc5? Qd5+, he just traded off into a 2 rook + 3 pawn vs 2 rook + 3 pawn ending. I guess after 38...Ke8 he would have played 39.Rab6 and 40.Rb7.
Jan-11-08  Jesspatrick: I thought that Black had the better of it after he was able to exchange light squared B's on move 13, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
