  offramp: It was during this game that Fischer invented the Diesel engine. He did that with his left hand. With his right hand he painted a colour version of Picasso's Guernica.

  ChessDude33: <offramp> and surprisingly enough, he did all that blindfolded! =P

Sacrifices which don't occur in an opponents position always fascinate me. 9.Qg3 is a nice move.

Jan-10-11  Halfpricemidge: What would've happened if 14...Nh5 ?
Jan-10-11  sevenseaman: Whenever I study a game from Fischer I get a feeling of supreme confidence that he invariably displays.

And he plays with panache, ever a presence OTB. Its like the earth turning anti-clockwise or the Sun rising from the East.

Jan-10-11  apexin: <Halfpricemidge> 15.Bxf7+ kd7 16.Qxe5 16...Bxg5? 17.Qe6# and if 16...anything
17.Bxe7 wins.

17...Rf7 18.QxRf7# = Scholar's Mate.
17...Ke7 18.Qe6# = Swallow's Tail Mate/Gueridon Mate. 17...Kd7 18.Qe6# = Dovetail Mate.
