Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-26-05  Palma Vest: Weird not to hv any kibitzing on this great game. Fischer clearly outplayed the Hungarian GM in this lengthy endgame. Not sure where he'd gone wrong in the process; Fischer demolished his opponent just like Capa in this endgame

  Jack Kerouac: And now there are two posts.
Having played through the majority of Fischer's games, I always thought the Caro-Kann was a good defense to play against him.
Jun-02-07  Buno382: And now three, Nice game, Fischer demonstrates why he favors the bishops in this Bishop and Rook vs Knight and Rook ending

  IMlday: 9..Na6 looks like an improvement.
Apr-15-08  Lutwidge: Bxh7 almost seems to me a sort of odd anticipation of game one of the Fischer - Spassky match.

Er, except that it worked. :)

Nov-10-09  birthtimes: "I was sitting next to the table on which the game was played. In a matter of seconds, Fischer found the right way to win. He played 27.Rd1!...33.Rb5! Here the rook stands best. After 36.Kd5 an obvious winning position was reached."

Statement by Alexander Kotov on page 6 of "Bobby Fischer: A Study of His Approach to Chess" by Elie Agur, 1992.

May-30-10  ckeckmate: After this 1962 match, kotov made his famous line regarding Fischer. " His chess future is without limit"
Jun-27-11  thejack: This always used to be one of my favourite Fischer games..the famed clarity of his style and lightness of touch (16.d5, 24.Nf5-d6-c8:, 33.Rb5) ..itīs all here!

Although one has to admit that Blackīs play wasnīt too bright (beginning in the opening..after 5.-ef6: itīs a pretty one sided affair..).

Btw: Itīs a pity that this isnīt included in Marinīs "Learn from the Legends".

Apr-07-12  King Death: Another beautiful Fischer endgame that shows the influence of Capablanca in his play. It's no wonder that Tal commented that it was impossible to give Fischer this kind of small clear advantage and expect to survive.
May-27-12  RookFile: Well, he reasonably thought that white wouldn't have the bishop take the rook pawn, due to the bishop becoming trapped. Fischer calculated like a computer and said wasn't so.
