23. Bf1, now what?
|May-28-04|| ||Shadow 812: 21. Rd8+?? loses to the obvious Nxd8, the knight covers the d8 square |
|May-28-04|| ||VinnyRoo2002: How exactly is this game a King's Indian Attack? Isn't it more of a Catalan? |
|Aug-27-04|| ||wall: Looks like a Catalan after 6.c4. Fischer is content in trading off everything. Wonder of 10.Nc3 is better. Maybe Fischer should have played on. He is a pawn up and has a knight and bishop for the two knights. After 19...Rxb6 perhaps 20.Bf3 |

I also think White has winning chances in the final position. Black's plan should be to try to exchange the c-pawn for the a-pawn and trade minor pieces, hoping to reach a drawn rook ending. White's plan should be to try to preserve the a-pawn and trade rooks, or use the a-pawn as a decoy to gain time to attack the kingside.
At the moment, I don't have any specific lines to implement the above plans. It is a delicate situation, and even computers may not be good at analyzing this kind of position.
|Sep-08-04|| ||beatgiant: Maybe the reason White accepted the draw is that it's hard to avoid the trade of the a-pawn for the c-pawn. For example, 20. ♗f3 ♖a6 , or 20. ♖a1 c6 .|
One possible try is 20. ♗h3 ♖a6 21. ♖d7 ♔f8 22. ♗xe6 fe 23. ♖xc7 ♖xa2 24. e3 , and there might still be some play left because of Black's kingside weakness. But Black could also defend with 20. ♗h3 ♔g7 21. ♖d7 ♔f6 22. ♗xe6 ♖xe6 23. ♖xc7 ♖xe2 , and it looks like Black will manage to hold the draw.
Even given the above, I think many masters would have the curiosity to play on here with White. So I wonder if I've missed something simple. Or maybe at that very early stage in his career, the young Fischer was still happy to get a draw with a famous master like Santasiere.
|Feb-01-05|| ||fgh: Fischer the drawnik! |
|Jan-04-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: It's possible that this is not the complete game score. That happens sometimes.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||TheFocus: Santasiere in his annotations did not indicate any further moves for this game, indicating that the draw was clear.|
|Jul-05-11|| ||kitbitzer31: what about 20. Rd7? sorry newbie here...|
|Jul-05-11|| ||Sastre: If 20.Rd7, Black is fine after 20...Kf8.|
