|Jul-25-04|| ||Benzol: <OneArmedScissor> Cathy Forbes is a WIM. |
|Jul-25-04|| ||OneArmedScissor: "WIM"? Woman International Master? |
|Jul-25-04|| ||Benzol: You've got it. |
|Sep-13-04|| ||refutor: this is the famous game where he couldn't make out his opponent's name on his scoresheet so for White he wrote "Fischer" and for Black he wrote "A Mongolian" :) |
|May-23-06|| ||keypusher: 21....ed 22. f6 is a pretty queen sacrifice.|
|May-23-06|| ||BobbyBishop: Well I guess the Dragon was still somewhat young back in the early 60's. As I recall, Kasparov taught Anand a bit of a lesson with it in their 1995 match.|

|May-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: so I analyzed 21...exd3 for nothing!!|
|Apr-12-11|| ||nowo: I'm trying to find black's best reply to the mess he's in and everything I look at seems to spell disaster (which is of course why he resigned). Anyone care to offer black's best move anyway, and the continuation? Thanks...|
|Apr-12-11|| ||TheFocus: <nowo> Just looking at the diagram after 22. Nxe4, we see that White threatens f6+ and then Qh3 wins.|
To counter this, Black cannot play 22...gxf5 23. Qg3+ and mate next move.
If 22...f6 23. fxg6 Rh8 (If ...Kxg6 24. Qg3 mate) 24. Rh7+ Rxh7 25. gxh7 and wins.
Is my analysis correct, anyone? Did I miss something?
|Apr-15-11|| ||nowo: <TheFocus>
I believe you are correct. I had figured 22...f6 was black's best reply. I couldn't see from there what was white's best move. 23. fxg6 seems to work best for white with no real defense for black after playing out as you wrote. Thanks!

yes, from Andrew Soltis book Bobby Fischer Rediscovered..
<In the first round of the Olympiad at Bulgaria's Golden Sands resort in Varna, Fischer found himself paired with an unknown Asian opponent. As he prepared his scoresheet, he tried in vain to figure out how to spell black's name. Fischer looked at his opponent's scoresheet but couldn't decipher the writing. Then he looked at the name card on the side of table but the Cyrillic lettering wasn't much help. Finally, he solved the mystery. In the place of the scoresheet for white he wrote "Fischer". And in the place for black he added, "A Mongolian".>
|May-27-11|| ||perfidious: Purevzhav got pureed here.|
|May-27-11|| ||Cibator: That whole manoeuvre with the KN (to d7 and points west) was just too slow. But BobbyBishop is right: the theory of the Yugoslav was still a bit rudimentary at the time. It wasn't so long before this game that GMs were still castling short against the Dragon.|
|Aug-24-11|| ||joshuap: A great attack by Fischer|
|Mar-21-14|| ||RookFile: Well, I would have chopped that bishop off on b3 the first chance that presented itself. You guys are right, Fischer would win anyway because the whole thing was a time wasting maneuver.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I believe Fischer himself said that beating the Dragon was a matter of open the h-file, sac, sac, mate. Black refused both of them in this game, but it didn't make much difference.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||offramp: That extra chromosome didn't help black at all.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||superzee: Poor moves by black|

Not! was against Mjagmarsuren - Las Palmas 1970 :-)
|Mar-21-14|| ||ossipossi: Putting a Knight in a5 was for nothing, while 13.h4 was to be contrasted with 13...h5. I like Dragon, seems logical but has a lot of weaknesses.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||gars: <An Englishman>: Good morning. You are right. I quote Fischer's words after his 16th move: "He won't get a second chance to snap off the Bishop! Now I felt the game was in the bag if I didn't botch it. I'd won dozens of skittles games in analogous positions and had it down to a science: pry open the h file, sac, sac ... mate!", as it is in "My Sixty Memorable Games".|
|Mar-21-14|| ||kevin86: White will seal in the black king and then force mate with queen and rook.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||RookFile: It's kind of humorous, but it's possible that what black should do is 12.....Nxb3, followed by ....Nd7 and and ....Nf6. He's already in a tough spot.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||diceman: <offramp: That extra chromosome didn't help black at all.>|
17... e5 tried to break the bind.
...but white had too much pull.
|Feb-20-16|| ||ZonszeinP: Why didn't ask Mr Purevzhav to write his name on his scoresheet? |
