|Dec-21-05|| ||oao2102: Pardon my ignorance but what exactly is the danger of 11..Nxe4? This move seems obvious prima fascie, but it's not in the database, so I assume it is a weak move. Why?|
|Dec-21-05|| ||tpstar: 11 ... Nxe4?? 12. Bd5 wins a piece.|
|Feb-05-06|| ||whatthefat: This is arguably Fischer's most impressive game from the 1970 Palma IZ where he destroyed the field. He plays a flawless game to victory.|
|Mar-16-06|| ||zev22407: Smyslov-Fischer from the same tournament is also a vry impressive game.|
|Mar-16-06|| ||zev22407: 42)N-e1!! deflecting black's queen.|
|Mar-16-06|| ||AlexanderMorphy: gr8 game!|
|Mar-16-06|| ||itz2000: 42. Ne1(!!)|
|Sep-17-06|| ||MyriadChoices: I hadn't seen the Be3 defense before, but it seems to have worked out mighty good.|
|Nov-10-06|| ||Rama: The position after 22. c4 ..., is impressive. I don't like 22. ... bxc4, though. |
22. ... Qb6, 23. a5 Qc7, 24. cxb5 cxb5, looks okay, with Nf6 coming, or Ne5 if possible.
36. Nc5 ..., is a real "Bobby-move"! After 40. Nd6 ..., we can see it coming. Did he see it all on move 36?
And when did he notice the extraordinary 42 Ne1!
Bobby's motor is running. He finishes the tournament with a string of wins.

Agree -- computer-like calculation throughout and elegance at the finish.
|Dec-20-06|| ||euripides: Fischer borrowed 13.Qb1 from some Russian bloke. Not much hope after that: Games Like Fischer vs Ivkov, 1970|
|Dec-20-06|| ||keypusher: Not sure why the <Games Like> feature doesn't pick it up, but Spassky also played 13. Qb1 against Gligoric:|
Spassky vs Gligoric, 1969
According to the Wade & O'Connell Fischer collection, Spassky got an advantage with 14. a4, so it was to be assumed that fellow Yugoslav Ivkov had something ready to use against Fischer in that line. But Fischer played 14. a3 instead and got a quite different sort of game.
|Mar-26-09|| ||TheWizardfromHarlem: my favorite fischer game perfect example of him imposing his will over his opponent.. from about move 16 onward black is concentrating all his forces and energy on the c5 break to just abandon it all together after Fischer's strategic manuevering on top of that c5 becomes a weakness!..that has to be psychologically crushing for the other guy|
|Mar-26-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Qb1 is a common move in Torre attacks against the King's Indian setup, as is b4. The main difference between those setups and this one is the black bishop sitting on f8 instead of g7.|
|Sep-05-09|| ||Garech: Is there anything wrong with 42. Kh2?|
|Sep-05-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <Garech> After 42.Kh2 Qf4+, Black can trade queens. True, the resulting endgame is probably lost, but that's still better than being mated at once.|
|Mar-10-11|| ||BarcelonaFirenze: Can you help me? What's the point of 42.Ne1? Is black compelled to take the knight? Thank you in advance.|
|Mar-10-11|| ||keypusher: <BarcelonaFirenze: Can you help me? What's the point of 42.Ne1? Is black compelled to take the knight? Thank you in advance.>|
42.Ne1 is played to avoid the exchange of queens that would result after 42.Kh2 Qf4+. <phony benoni> already pointed this out -- often it's a good idea to read previous kibitzing.
As for the second question, I guess you could say Black isn't compelled to take the knight, but only because he is lost whether he takes it or not. He can't defend f7, and he can't take the white bishop: 42...fxg6 43.Qxg6+ Kh8 (or 43....Kf8 Qf7#) 44.Nf7#.
|Mar-11-11|| ||Damianx: me questioning Fisher that,s funny but isn,t 39 Nd6 crushing|

|Jul-31-12|| ||Poisonpawns: Speechless. Comment-less.|
|Jun-25-14|| ||sicilianhugefun: A Chess fantasy... Fischer's Bc1 followed by Qd3 is indeed elegant|
|Aug-23-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: 42. Ne1 may be my favorite knight sacrifice of all time.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||kamagong24: bloody game!|
|Nov-03-15|| ||jerseybob: 13.Qb1 is first of all a defensive move; black's threatening to win a pawn since the bishop on e3 blocks the rook on e1. It's also the start of a slow, subtle q-side strengthening program, one made easier by black's dubious 20..Nf4!?|
