Mar-29-05  lopium: Why not 48...Qxc3?
Mar-29-05  Kangaroo: 48. ... Qxc3. 49. Qd5 - White threatens 50. Qa8+ (or even chackmate) and 50. Bc5+ - Black will hardly prevent both.
Jul-26-07  RookFile: This game was noteworthy, and was cited by I.A. Horowitz in one of his books as an example of the bad form Fischer was in at Curacao.

After 27..... Kf8, a Fischer, in good form, during a blitz game, would have replied 28. Qh5! in about 1 second, e.g. 28....Kg8 29. Qxg6 hxg6 30. Ne7+

  Garech: Great game - in the final position black is very close to Zugzwang, which can't be a good thing considering that white will be able to march the c pawn up the board. Credos to the Fischer King!
Oct-30-09  AnalyzeThis: It's not a great game, with Fischer missing an obvious hammer blow on move 28.
