|May-28-04|| ||talchess2003: all of a sudden fischer effected a deluge of piece activity.. 28. Ke7 was not very good.. but black's position looks lost anyways |
|Mar-18-06|| ||zev22407: The black king find himself in the mercy of white's pieces|
|Apr-29-07|| ||e4Newman: at move 34, I first saw the nice discovered check Rc4. Is the eventual ...Re1+ and ...fxg2 the only thing stopping it?|
|Apr-29-07|| ||e4Newman: I was a little off, it's not as dramatic as I thought. No immediate pawn promotion for black. But how about|
34.Rc4+ Rxe3 35.Rxc8 Re1+ 36.Kh2 Kh4 37.g3+ Kxh5
and I don't see much advantage for white any more
|Dec-28-07|| ||apexin: after this game variation with 9..Bd6 was considered refuted.|
|Apr-05-09|| ||apexin: Why this was never a GOTD?
It is an excellent,excellent,excellent
preparation without computers only books and a great tactical struggle also.
|May-09-11|| ||Atking: What is the idea after 14...fxB? 15.f4!? else 15.exB exf2+ 16.Kxf2 O-O+ looks Ok for Black.|
|Oct-22-15|| ||zanzibar: As <talchess2003> noted, 28...Ke7 is clearly subjecting the king to hardship, better was 28...Kg8 seeking shelter.|
But I want to back up to strange-looking move 25...f3 (I think Black is worse even after 26.gxf3)

Note how Fischer immediately sets out to claim the vacated f4 square for White with 26.Be3, 28.h5 (driving off defender), 29.Rf4+.
Maybe better was 25...h5, accepting the long-term burden of defending f4.
And even earlier...
MCO-15 gives 10.Na5!, its interesting to wonder why it's a better move with a Black bishop on d3 vs e3.
|Oct-22-15|| ||zanzibar: At the end of the game Black must play 34...Rxe3 35.Rxe3 going down two pawns + exchange. |
The other option is being mated. There's a nice mating problem after 34...Kh4:

2r5 /6pp/3R4/1N2n2P/7k/2P1BR2/b3rPP1/6K1 w - - 0 34
There's a few branches, I like the one where the king returns to h4. Very nice example of 2R working together.
|Nov-24-15|| ||Howard: Mednis did a good article in the early part of 1979 on Fischer's 5.0-0 in this opening, and he analyzed this particular game in the article.|
|Nov-24-15|| ||parisattack: Classic Fischer!
His 'secret weapon' for Havana - beat Portisch, Gligoric and Jimenez with it. At least Gligo got a variation named for him out of the deal. The 5. 0-0 had been named previously after Barendreght -
