|May-04-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: 16 Bg5 is a preparation for 17 Qxe6+!. It clears c1 for the QR on a1 for the move Ra1-c1, so that after Black gains a pawn on c3 in return for the pawn which White wins on d5, the Bc3 and the c7 pawn can be skewered by Rc1.Nor is that all. In taking the c7 pawn, the Rook occupies the seventh rank as well, so White gains the benefits of a Rook on the seventh rank in addition to a pawn.|
|Dec-07-07|| ||qskakaley: Can someone please tell me how 25.Bd2 isn't a better move? Doesn't it virtually win material by force?|
|Dec-07-07|| ||JNewton: <qskakaley> I think that after 25. Bd2, black has the response 25 ... Rxf3. Now Black's bishop cannot be taken, and if 26 gf3, then 26 ... Rxd2, and White's attack has been nullified, and has lost his advantage.|
|Dec-07-07|| ||ernieb: I was thinking if 25. Bd2 Rb8.|
|Jan-30-08|| ||Eyal: <At the end of the tournament the two of us were invited by one of the participants, Yaacov Bernstein, to spend a few days on the kibbutz where he lived [...] At the kibbutz we played some blitz. In our tournament game I had collapsed as soon as Bobby had uncorked an opening novelty. Playing blitz I hoped for... well, not really revenge, but maybe one draw out of a series of games, was that too much? But no way. After a while he wanted to give me knight odds. I protested, but I had to oblige. That game he won also, and then he refused to go on. "No challenge," he said.> (http://www.chesscafe.com/hans/hans....)|
The opening novelty uncorked by Fischer that Ree refers to is apparently 16.Bg5 – until then, they used to play 16.Ng5 (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...).
|Jan-30-08|| ||Riverbeast: Amazing that Fischer could give knight odds in blitz to an IM, and former Dutch champion|

I felt the same way. Probably most of us at some point would have slipped in a little tempo loss with h3. Fischer saw that it wasn't necessary.
|Apr-18-09|| ||paulmorphy41: ernieb, one move earlier 24Bd2 Rxf3? now is bad because of 25gxf3 and if Rxd2? 26Ra8mate! and if 24...R-b8 25BxB RxB 26Rxg7+ kf8 27h3 via N-g5 or N-e5...looks good also. I found a good line for black 16...Bxc3 17Rc1 Bf6 18Qxe6+ QxQ 19Bxd5 Qxd5 20RxQ Nb4 21R-d7 Nxa2 22Rcxc7 Rfd8 23Bxf6 Rxd7 24Rxd7 gxf6 maybe equal.|
|Jun-11-09|| ||vonKrolock: <Benzol> Voilà... :)|
|Jun-11-09|| ||Benzol: <vonKrolock> Your collection is growing.|
|Jun-11-09|| ||vonKrolock: <Benzol> And the quest will go on :)|
|Jun-11-09|| ||Benzol: <vonKrolock> Bojan Kurajica played Fischer in 1970 at Rovinj/Zagreb.|
|Jun-11-09|| ||Benzol: Jorge Alberto Rubinetti looks like another one.
There are more than I first thought there were.
|Jun-11-09|| ||vonKrolock: <Benzol> Much appreciated :) One of the Rubinettis and the Kurajica were missing... Now we have 29 games|
|Oct-17-13|| ||jerseybob: Riverbeast: In the Summer of '72, while he was in NYC debating whether to go Reykjavik, he gave Lombardy odds of a minor piece, and lost only after a severe struggle.|
