Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 9 OF 9 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Mar-09-13  beonlychampion: i got bishop e4 yippei. thou not all of them but most of them
Mar-09-13  Patriot: <<morfishine>: I would like to see the win after 28.Be4 <28...Be8>> I was thinking 29.Nxh7 Nxh7 30.hxg6 fxg6 31.Bxg6 is similar to the 28.Nxh7 line. Also, 30...Nf8 31.g7 is another way.
Mar-10-13  Eduardo Bermudez: Bishop e4 is the best move of the game !
Mar-10-13  snakebyt: ,thegoodanarchist> Thanks. I see it now.
May-17-14  RubinSteinitz: When Bobby Fischer played a move like he did here with 28. Be4, you KNOW there is a trap in there somewhere! What a genius that guy was!!!
Sep-07-14  SpiritedReposte: This is pretty. Panno even gets in a little counter-attack and not only does the piece do him no good but he's mated immediately.
Sep-30-14  jerseybob: LIFE Master AJ: How could you analyze this game and not discuss the consequences of 10..Qb6!?
Oct-08-14  mrandersson: How about 29 Nf5 i did a little look into that and its seems ok a line i hand in mind was Nf5 exf5 gxf5 Qd7 Bxd5. Maybe engines will give some ideas?
Oct-10-14  jerseybob: mranderson: Your suggested 29.Nf5 may or may not work - I didn't bother to check - because Fischer's 29.Nh7 is obviously the best move, the logical followup to his 28th. Does 29.Nh7 seem faulty to you?
Apr-30-15  ToTheDeath: Great game- the bishop on b5 was a spectator to the proceedings. Panno must have been kicking himself for not trading it for the knight when he had the chance.

  Nightsurfer: <The King's Indian Attack> is a very effective tool against the Sicilian Defence - just see the corresponding games Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 and A Skripchenko vs I Krush, 2004 - and against the French Defence, herewith one of many examples: the recent encounter R Gralla vs S Demel, 2015 (though the foregoing battle is a less sophisticated case than the other examples, of course!).
Jul-25-16  andrea volponi: 26...Cf8!-Dg5 Dc7- Af1 Axf1- Rxf1 De7-Dc1 Dd8- h6 Cd7
Dec-06-16  clement41: Highly instructive Be4 sac!
Dec-21-16  Saniyat24: A beautiful game...!
Jan-16-17  Albion 1959: A masterful attack by Fischer that seems to come out of nowhere. The slow build up of pressure up to where the position erupts with 28.Be4!! Panno probably thought that all points of entry were covered and Fischer had no way to break through. Not even Rybka suggested Be4!! However, it suggestion of Nxh7 looks quite forceful: 28. Nxh7 Nxh7
29. hxg fxg
30. Qxg6+ Kh8
31. Qxe6 With pawns (passed for the knight, white has more than enough here, but Fischer wants more! And Be4! launches an attack where Panno could find no defence. Move 28. Qe7, a more determined attempt to resist was Be8 to fortify the g6 square, but even this falls short. 28. Be4!! Be8
29. hxg hxg
30. Qxf8+ Kxf8
31. Nxe6+ Ke7
32. Nxd8 dxe
33. Nb7 The passed pawns on d4 and e5 must be decisive. And finally, instead of 30. Nxh7, another forceful winning line is 29. Nf5!! exf
30. gxh gxh
31. Bxf5 Bd7
32. Bxh7+ Kh7
33. Nxf7+ Qxf7
34. Bg6+ Wins the queen;

I can't think of too many games where Fischer played attacks like this, for me he was primarily an aggressive positional player, who used tactics to win games:

  An Englishman: Good Evening: And it all boils down to a single tempo. None of this happens if Black can play 27...Qf8. But White has the tempo and plays 27.Ng5, forcing 27...Nf8. With his own Knight out of the way, Fischer can then follow up with his famous Bishop move.
Nov-05-17  Ratt Boy: Sucks that Fischer turned out to be such a nutcase, but hoo boy, was his chess beautiful.

There are a few players whose games I like to see over and over again. Fischer is one, as are Tal, Morphy, and Alekhine. Bronstein, too.

Nov-05-17  Ironmanth: Masterful!
Nov-05-17  newzild: Once again, Fischer makes it look easy.

I play the King's Indian Attack with white, and I would have been concerned about 10...Qb6. It would be interesting to know what Fischer intended as a response.

Superb calculation (or intuition) with the attack, as there are lots of possibilities after 28. Be4!!

Nov-05-17  orbisignis89: gotta love 18.g4
Nov-06-17  The Kings Domain: Fine attacking game by Fischer.

  kevin86: Mate to follow.
Nov-07-17  RookFile: I think after 10...Qb6 white plays 11. d5 Nd4 12. Nxd4 Bxd4 13. Be3 Bxe3 14. Rxe3. Some advantage to white. If 14....Qxb2 white keeps on developing with 15. Nc3.
Mar-19-18  Justin796: It's easy when you are told that there is indeed a winning move, but my problem is making that move otb.
