|Mar-20-05|| ||RookFile: 17. Bxe4 is an absolutely shocking
move for Bobby Fischer to play... more typical of Korchnoi. The old Fischer would never have played this, I believe.
|Mar-20-05|| ||offramp: It is not too bad a move, though 17.Nd3 looks more like a Fischer move. |
|Dec-29-05|| ||seeminor: 23...Bxe3! sets of a fine tactical battle which ends in an a fair draw.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||chess champion 8: I don't think Bxe4 was a bad move. Even though Nd3 does look more like a fischer move I think Bxe4 does still but Fishcer in an ok position.|
|Aug-10-07|| ||RookFile: It was part of a surprising trend in this match, that Fischer in many positions favored knight over bishop... that was very rarely true in his earlier career.|
|Nov-29-08|| ||Travis Bickle: Did Bobby ever play the catalan before this match?|
|Jan-31-09|| ||WhiteRook48: nice Fischer game|
|Apr-05-09|| ||DWINS: <Travis Bickle>, Fischer had used the Catalan only once before, against Attilio Di Camillo in the 1957-58 United States Championship. Di Camillo had accepted the Catalan with an early ...dc, but here Spassky conservatively declined it with 6...Nbd7.|
Fischer vs A Di Camillo, 1957
|Sep-27-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Fischer decided to give up the Catalan after this|

I have to agree. Simply 17 Nd3 looks ok..
The 'old Fischer' would've been physically sick upon seeing such a move played lol
|Mar-12-11|| ||hottyboy90: Nice tactical shot with 23...Bxf3 but Fischer had the resoucefulness to find that perpetual check and overall a great game by these two men. All i can say is he was lucky to have found that perpetual...|
|Jun-03-12|| ||RookFile: Anand just got done playing Gelfand, where he favored the knights too. Looking at this game with those eyes, it seems to fit right in with what Anand did.|
|Dec-23-13|| ||Owl: 33. Nf5+ nice save by Fischer
Also nice defense

Actually, this game follows game 19 of the Korchnoi-Karpov WCC match 1978, where Korchnoi, playing white, at one point did indeed play Bxe4.
|Oct-05-16|| ||RookFile: Fischer could have played something like 6. b3. He was really good at those slow buildups, with gradual pressure on the black position.|
