May-19-05  AndrzejewskiJr: isn't 9...Q7 better than ...b5?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: wow... 31. ... Kxh7
32. hxg6+ Kxg6
33. Be4#


32. ... Kg8
33. Rh8#

You/one have to admit, Bobby is gooooood.

Jun-22-05  kab: How does white play after 23..gxf6? (if 24. exf6 Kh8)
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: <kab>
On 23...gxf6 24. Ne4 looks very strong and probably winning.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessical: <kab> Lhamsuren Myagmarsuren was faced with the total disintegration of his K-side after <23...gxf6>, for example:

<24.exf6 Kh8> 25.Bf5! exf5 26.Re7 Qd8 27.Rxf7 Qg8 28.Rg7 Qxg7 29.fxg7+ Kxg7 30.Re1 Ra7 31.Nf3 winning.

  Sneaky: Looking over this game again I can't help but to reorganize my Game Collection: Fischer's 10 Greatest Games to make room for it.

By the way, what does the pun mean?

Jun-22-05  sneaky pete: It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing. It's just the title of a famous Dizzy Gillespie tune.

  kevin86: hat was black trying to do? Queen a pawn,maybe pick up a rook? white did what good attackers do-go for the king with hook,line,and sinker. Good attackers-and great Fischers.(or fishers) lol

BTW,why did black move his rook to a7 BEFORE white attacked it a move later? Could there have been a sequence problem in the score of this game?

Jun-22-05  Shokwave: Cool game. I like looking over KIA games.
Jun-22-05  Jonathan Kolkey: 26..c-4 looks terrible for Black. Why not B-b7, which, by applying immediate pressure on the rook, at least prevents the White rook from reaching h4 after White pushes his king rook pawn next move? Could this scheme be any worse than what actually happened to Black in this game?
Jun-23-05  ConspTheory06: <Kevin86> the bishop move was to secure the mate in the end not attack the rook
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: <Consptheory>You're right,it was to complete the mate at e5-that's why Qh6 a move earlier fails.
Jun-24-05  Chess Addict: That was pretty good Queen sac, no matter what Black does he will be checkmated.
Aug-02-05  Chessplayer99: Nice job Fischer. You played well againtest your opponent.
Nov-17-05  GBKnight: By chance I followed Myagmarsuren's play in a game yesterday. My opponent played 13 a3 which I followed with 13..bxa3 14 bxa3 and then Rb8. I thought a3 was perhaps not the best - it seems to give black play on the b-file and divert white from his king-side intentions - but now I know that Fischer played it I must change my opinion !! I won the game by the way, since black always had a q-side initiative and white never got going on the k-side. This was a fantastic finish by Fischer, of course.
Mar-11-06  drukenknight: before putting too many exclamation pts. on 29 Bg2, has anyone tried saving this with 29...Qf8?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: 30 Be4 looks crushing.
Mar-11-06  drukenknight: yes it does look bad. The chesslab pc played 30 Bh3 for some strange reason, so now it looks like 28...Rc7 is the last chance and even that is...?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: To my patzer eyes 28...Rc7 looks worse than the game move, since the QR is hanging after 29 Bg2...any reason you think it is better, <dk>?
Mar-14-06  MaxxLange: I won a nice game in this opening once against an expert who went right down the "Long Variation " main line as in this game. However, I transposed moves, playing 11. Bf4 and 12. h4....that seems like it's probably innacurate (RJF played h4 first, for one), and I wonder what Black can do against it. Is 11...g5 possibly playable? Looks weakening to me, but maybe Black is OK.
Mar-15-06  drukenknight: kp. what I meant was 28...Rc7 is the latest suggested improvement in the game that hasnt yet been demolished. My comment was more like: "but this wont work either will it?"
Mar-15-06  drukenknight: Forced to choose between two R moves, one should have a logical reason why one is better than the other; either that or they are both wrong. They cant both be good moves, chess doesnt seem to work like that. Now Miag. has to try to figure out why one is better than the other, he has to see the R sack on h7.

If he gets a R on c7 and then B on b7 he can prevent the R sack on h7 but wont work if the R is on a7.

So something like this:

28...Rc7 29. Bg2 Bb7

I dunno, maybe it was suggested earlier.

Mar-15-06  drukenknight: Here is the R sack and explains why 28...Bb7 is out:

29. hxg6 fxg6
30. Rxh7 Rxc2
31. Bxe6+ Qxe6
32. Qxg6+ Kf8
33. Rh8+ Qg8
34. Qxg8#

MIag. should be able to see at least some of this coming, so he rejects the B move, but he has to decide on which of two R moves, they cant both be right.

  keypusher: OK, now I understand. Will try to take a look...
Mar-15-06  Cerebrum Of Tal: There's another Fischer KIA game I found in Sahovski Informator vol.6 which is also very good and it was annotated by him...
