|Sep-22-06|| ||AAAAron: Instead of castling on the 13th move Spassky should have stopped Fisccer's pawn from advancing by making the move 13. a5. This stops Fiscers pawn from breaking up Spassky's defense. Spassky could also then sacrifice one of his bishops for one of Fischers horses. Because you would never want to allow Fiscer to have two horses in a good position. Thats just a thought, but when your playing, hindsight is 20/20. That said its easy to go backwards a say what should have been done. Good game nonetheless.|
|Dec-10-06|| ||talisman: <AAAAron> agree with your points.fischer's 15th move is the one that gets the ball rolling.|
|Aug-10-07|| ||RookFile: Fischer deviates again in this match, playing a different attack against the Ruy Lopez than played last time, and it yields him a quick win.|
|Nov-29-07|| ||InspiredByMorphy: <DhavalVyas> <The major error here seems to be 17. ...Kc6.> |
18.Nbxc5+ is threatened winning at least a pawn.
|Apr-24-08|| ||Joshka: <GreenMamba> Well to offer your opinion on the level of Spassky's play (1500)...former World Champion Karpov and GM Henley seem to feel this game was worthy to be included in their DVD series on Fischer!|
|Apr-29-08|| ||ketchuplover: 21...Kb5 22.Nc3+ Kc4 23.Nd3 b5 24.Nxe5+ Kb4 25.Nd5#
23...Bd7 24.Nxe5+ Kb4 25.Nd5+ Kb5 26.c4#
Two knights can be as deadly as two bishops.
|Nov-27-08|| ||adarknight: I don't understand why thegame ends here. There is no mate and pieces are about equal. Can someone explain|
|Nov-27-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Take a look at the posts by Marius and ketchuplover above, and you'll see the choices for black, and that all lead to a lost position. Hopeless, so Spassky resigned.|
|Nov-29-08|| ||adarknight: I see thanks for the response jim!|
|Nov-29-08|| ||Travis Bickle: <adarknight: I don't understand why thegame ends here. There is no mate and pieces are about equal. Can someone explain> adarkknight if you can afford it, buy a chess computer program like Fritz and use the setup function on the software to the position where the player resigns. Then have the computer play out both sides. You will see the reasons for the resignation and learn quite a bit. After further study in the future try playing whichever side won WHT or BLK and try to "win a won game", sometimes not so easy, but also a great tool to develope your tactical and all around game as a chessplayer.
|Jan-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: something is Fishy about this game... ha ha ha...|
|Jan-31-09|| ||WhiteRook48: thought he was safe on b7 until I saw that knight coming to d6|
|May-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: didn't play that Ruy Lopez often, did they?|
|May-26-09|| ||TheChessGuy: <WhiteRook48> Actually, Fischer somewhat revived the Spanish Exchange in the 1960's. His lifetime score in it with the white pieces was quite ridiculous. Many wins, no losses and only a few draws.|
|Mar-11-10|| ||InspiredByMorphy: What happens after 15. fxe5?|
|May-12-10|| ||beatgiant: <InspiredByMorphy>
On 15...fxe5 16. axb6 looks strong. For example, 15...fxe5 16. axb6 cxb6 17. Ne4 Be7 18. Rxd8 Bxd8 19. Nxc5+ etc.
|Aug-23-10|| ||Everett: Spassky revisits his '72 early-match form in this one.|
|Mar-10-11|| ||hottyboy90: Easy win for Bobby though how he constructed the plan that led up to that immense attack I dont know but Spasskys king was left completely out in the open with no protection.|
|Mar-04-12|| ||Lashab: According to Houdini, Fischer made no mistakes in this game. Spassky made two major ones. For some people, who criticize Spassky - game is nearly equal till 17.Kc6|
Perhaps on 1-2 occasions Houdini would have played a slightly better move, but strength of Fischer's move is pretty close...
|Jun-20-12|| ||screwdriver: <beatgiant
On 15...fxe5 16. axb6 looks strong. For example, 15...fxe5 16. axb6 cxb6 17. Ne4 Be7 18. Rxd8 Bxd8 19. Nxc5+ etc>
Nice analysis! I too was wondering why spasky just didn't play fXe5. E5 was genious by Fischer as was his sacrifice on c5. I thought maybe Spasky could just take that on c5 initially, 19...bxc5 20.Nxc5 Bf7(not forced but seems reasonable)21.Rxa6+ Kc7 22. e6 Bg6(again, not forced but seems logical) 23. Bf4+ Kc8 24.Ra8#
This is why Bobby Fischer was always a cut above the rest. He'd be looking for checkmates where others are just trying to improve their position. Someone get his DNA and let's clone him!
|May-21-13|| ||Damianx: but computer have no emotions to get the idea see Fishers commentary on a Morphy game he says this is an easy win and this is an easy win but Morphy wanted to make a master piece and on Fishers game of the Century comp says Queen d5 is best move Fisher plays second best move now i saw Queen d5 it was easy but boring i couldn,t see what Fisher saw|
