|Feb-22-03|| ||drukenknight: MOre Fischer/Winawer. Pachman had a nice rivalry going with Fischer in the 60s. I question 9...c6 why not 9...c5 to exploit a sort of pin on d pawn. |
|Sep-03-04|| ||Zaius: I'm sorry, I'm not picking it up. What's the reason for the whole 32. Kf1 33. Kg1 deal? |
|Sep-03-04|| ||clocked: Oh, well, you see, when a computer can't come up with a plan it often shuffles the king back and forth... |
|Sep-03-04|| ||JustAFish: The key to this game seems to come down to black's move 37 which nets Fischer a pawn. I think black could have held the draw with 37 ...Kf8 instead of letting the g7 pawn fall. |
|Sep-03-04|| ||weirdoid: <Zaius> I think that Kf1-Kg1 move might habve been just some move to gain thinking time. Pardon me if I am telling you something you are familiar with, but since in tournaments the amount of thinking time is limited, when thinking about a potentially complicated move, players often just make other, inconsequential moves while thinking about the move they really intend.|
<JustAFish> That is what I (with my grand expertise in patzering) think too. But I guess it is understandable - having been under pressure the entire game, I guess Pachman feared ... Kf8 which seemed to entomb Rg8. I guess he did not really think much on that move (or, in less charitable terms, he blundered). Credit to Bob F. though, for keeping the pressure even as pieces left the board.
|Sep-03-04|| ||Zaius: No, weirdoid, I am fairly new player to chess. Thanks for the info! |
|Sep-03-04|| ||Lawrence: <Zaius>, a warm welcome from all of us, you'll find this a great place to learn to play chess. |
|Sep-03-04|| ||Zaius: Thanks Lawrence! I'm looking at Fischer's games right now because he's such an intriguing player and person. Also, I really like his "never die" attitude to gaming, because that's mine too. |
|Aug-02-07|| ||Helios727: What happens after 44. ... fxg5 ?|
|Aug-02-07|| ||zev22407: To Helios727 on 43)..Fxg5 44)fxg5 hxg5
45)hxg5 and black has to face the move c5 creating another passed pawn on the queen side.
|Apr-26-09|| ||madlydeeply: Fischeresque moves? (A) 20. Rd3 puts every piece into a kingside attack...yet perhaps that was a little shadow jab to goad Pachman into trading on the d file leaving the queen and rook dominant?|
(B) after 24. Qd4 Not the first fischer game I've seen where he dominates a center file queen first front and center resulting in an opponent squirming and blundering...or is the file domination in itself a winning advantage?
(c) initiates pawn bishop exchange on b5 freezing the a7/b6 pawns. pawn triangle b3/c4/b5 can't be harassed frontally by rook or queen. So doubled pawns are good in this case...
|Apr-26-09|| ||madlydeeply: (d) fischer also leads with his queen with 13 Qe5...why does pachman keep his queen? because the knight is needed on f6 to cover the d7 square v. rook infiltration I SUPPOSE.|
|Jun-27-11|| ||Garech: Beautiful game from Fischer; what can one do against such an opponent?|
