Jul-09-05  calman543: So what's the finish up if black didn't resign?
Jul-10-05  Boomie: After 78...♖a8 79. ♘c6+ ♔f6 80. ♖d8, black is helpless as only his king can move.
Jun-24-11  WiseWizard: How about 31. bxa6 Nb3 [bxa6 32. Rb1] 32. axb7 if 32...Nxa1 Rxa1 and pushing the a pawn, or 32...Nxc1 Bxc1 keeping the Rook on the a-file.

What you say does'nt work.

Jun-25-11  WiseWizard: Why not?
Feb-25-12  icealys: best is 78. ...Ra8 79. Nc6+ Kf6 80. Rd8 Kg5 81. Nb8 and the black steed has lost.

  zydeco: Why not 66.....Rd8? If 67.Rc5 Rd6 68.Rxe5 Rxc6, white has better pawns, but black's eliminated the c6 pawn, which is the only real danger.
Aug-02-15  ToTheDeath: Good example of Fischer's will to win. He just keeps maneuvering and pressing until he hits on the Ne8-xc7 idea and finishes him off ruthlessly.
Aug-02-15  RookFile: The h2 knight did some terrific defensive work in the middlegame.
