|Dec-16-11|| ||palagalaako: Oh wow thanks for those games..i think i'm just intimidated as my friend exchanges early.. i dont feel comfortable that my queenside pieces were exchanged in the openings..i'l try to work out with .... Nd7, i think it fares better..|
|Dec-28-12|| ||plang: This must be one of Fischer's worst games with 6 Bc4. After he omits 11 a3 his knights are chased to passive positions and after 17..d5 he is close to lost. Tal did avoid one nice Fischer trap: if 25..Bxg2? 26 Qxf4! and it is White who would have been winning.|
|Jan-11-13|| ||talsqueen: The turning point is 11. ____ B4, after that White has a discernible expression of haplessness....and then smashed!|
|Nov-26-13|| ||Meaux: <joelsontang: Fischer says white should play 10.f5 instead of 10.0-0?...any comment???> Wow, did Fischer really say that about this game? I thought it was wise. I do not feel like that was where he went wrong.|
|Nov-26-13|| ||Meaux: < ChessYouGood: Fischer was american - americans can't play chess> Fischer became as UNAmerican as they come, God rest his soul.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Meaux: Oh my, after further review, castling there was where he went wrong.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Meaux: Bobby, I hope that you can hear me from chess heaven and forgive me: You were an American hero in 1972 and are still my hero today. I am reading ENDGAME and have a fresh perspective and a whole new theory regarding your behavior in the end. I just really miss you!|
|Dec-02-14|| ||MindCtrol9: Fisher was outplayed in this game.Tal played solid the aperture in this Sicilian.Good coordination.This is an instructive game.|
|Dec-02-14|| ||1d410: Not even close|
|Jan-29-15|| ||auldoxon: Fischer got into a very bad position without an apparent blunder. I guess 11. f5 is the first mistake, followed by some inaccuracies. A credit must be given to Tal for his great play. He did make some inaccuracies late in the game but this didn't hurt because he already had decisive position.|
|Jan-29-15|| ||auldoxon: Perhaps the variation that Fischer played is relatively weak.|
|Jan-30-15|| ||RookFile: I'm not an expert on this, but I don't think Fischer usually put the queen on f3 in all those games he did win with this.|
|Mar-08-15|| ||Uhohspaghettio: The queen does go on f3 in the main line of 6. Bc4. No guys these moves are all standard book and you won't be able to pick out the first inaccuracy made without a lot of research and likely a computer.|
|May-31-15|| ||reenareena: Well done tal|
|May-31-15|| ||reenareena: I am beginner can any body tell me what is sciscilian dragon how to play|
|Aug-09-15|| ||jith1207: <reenareena> You can use opening explorer link in the games to view different variations and the games played in them.|
|May-05-16|| ||naisortep: Video of the game where Tal pretends to play c6 is available here - although it might expire on Twitter. But its bound to pop up somewhere else on the internet. |
|Aug-25-16|| ||kingscrusher: I have done a new and revised video annotation of this game going into more of the hidden variations and details here:|
|Nov-14-16|| ||WannaBe: So this is the one where 1...c6 became 1...5 =))|
Not the other one that took place in Oct.
Fischer vs Tal, 1959
|Nov-14-16|| ||diceman: <WannaBe: So this is the one where 1...c6 became 1...5 =))|
Not the other one that took place in Oct.>
Looks like it.
In the video you can see Benko playing
Petrosian. Benko opened 1.Nf3.
That and this game were round 13.
The game you listed is round 27,
in that round, Benko opened 1.d4.
(thank goodness Benko switched openings!)
|Nov-14-16|| ||WannaBe: <diceman> Yeah, and Tal went 4-0 against (young) Fischer!! =))|
|Jan-08-18|| ||Petrosianic: <technical draw>: <Thanks <HeMateMe>. That's my pun...>|
I don't get it. This is Game 2 of the series, not Game 4.
<WannaBe>: <Yeah, and Tal went 4-0 against (young) Fischer!! =))>
That's okay, it was also a young Tal.
|Jan-11-18|| ||technical draw: <Petrosianic I don't get it. This is Game 2 of the series, not Game 4.> |
It's because they played 4 games in this candidates tournament and Tal won all four.
This has to be one of Fischer's worse games ever.
|Jan-11-18|| ||perfidious: <td....This has to be one of Fischer's worse games ever.>|
Sounds about right, but in my opinion, Fischer vs Keres, 1959, played five rounds before this debacle, was an even nastier defeat for the young grandmaster.
As Wade laconically noted in his work on Fischer:
|Jan-11-18|| ||technical draw: <perfidious> And in both games Fischer had white. The final position in this game looks horrendous for Fischer. Say it ain't so, Bobby!|
