Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-04  vonKrolock: a very interesting game from the first round... is a pity that Hübner dont included this in his "Annotated Games", maybe shall we wait for the second volume?!
Mar-15-04  Whitehat1963: Does Huebner let a victory escape here, or was Bobby ever in any real danger? Perhaps it was the other way around?
Feb-05-05  aw1988: A very exciting game.

Huebner misses 18...Nec6!, which would have given him quite a large advantage.

Fischer in turn misses 32. Bf3!, which could have very well won against Huebner. The text move brings an even game.

Feb-05-05  Shadow 812: A battle between the two Roberts, for the record this game was played on the 9th of November 1970:
May-04-05  woodenbishop: Incredible game! Huebner really puts up a fight against the mighty Fischer.
Jul-28-05  arifattar: 31. Qa6 brilliant. Pity it just resulted in a bishop.

  offramp: The final pawn formation reminds me of one of those disastrous games from 1992; I am not going to look up which one, though.

  Eyal: After 25...Ng8? which allows Bd5, Black is in great danger of losing; much better was 25...b6. Huebner was probably afraid of 26.Bh3, but it seems that after 26...Nf5 Black has adequate defense:

27.Bxf5 Qxf5 28.Re7+ Kg8 29.Qh6 Qf6 30.Qxh7+ Kf8 31.Rxa7 d2 and White has to settle for perpetual check.

27.Re5 Nxh4! 28.gxh4 (28.Bxd7? Nf3+) 28...Qxh3 29.Re7+ Kf8 30.Rxh7 Qg4+ 31.Kf1 Rd7 32.Qh6+ (32.Rxd7? Qh3+! 33.Kg1 Qxd7 with winning chances for Black in the queen endgame - the intermediate check at h3 is important so as to keep the white king away from the queening square of the 'd' pawn in the line 34.Qh6+ Ke7 35.Qxg6 d2) 32...Ke8 33.Rh8+ Ke7 34.Qf8+ Ke6 35.Qe8+ Kf6 and again White has nothing better than perpetual check.

32.Qxa7? which loses a piece throws away White's winning chances. After moves such as 32.Kg2 or Bf3, White's winning plan should probably be based on bringing the king over to the queenside.

Robert Hübner: "Materialien zu Fischers Partien" (roughly <Materials to Fischer's games>, 235 pages), Schachzentrale Rattmann, Ludwigshafen 2004, ISBN 3-88086-151-1, where he is analysing <the quality of Fischer's M60MG annotations> and thereafter classifying its mis-evaluations and mistakes.

He added and analysed this game on a mere of six pages.

Aug-01-10  vonKrolock: <whiteshark> Yes, already a classic, it should go to my wish-list, thanks!

  perfidious: <whiteshark: (Huebner) added and analysed this game on a mere of six pages.>

Given numerous analyses he has published for Informator, this qualifies as a short day at the office.

  diagonal: Interzonal first round game between GM Fischer and (then) IM Hübner:

When Fischer immediately played 32.Qxa7? which loses a piece and throws away White's winning chances as <Eyal> pointed out above, Fischer had more than one hour on his clock, meanwhile Hübner had only around a minute left (first time control at 40 moves, 2 1/2 hours), according to Robert Hübner in the monthly SCHACH 8/2016

Feb-16-17  Howard: One suspects that Fischer should have won this game, somehow.
