|Sep-12-03|| ||MichaelJHuman: What was bad about 18...Bxc6? |
|Sep-12-03|| ||MichaelJHuman: 34...Rxf4 looks correct. |
|Sep-12-03|| ||xu fei: <MichaelJHuman> 18...Bxc6 19.Bxe5, and 34...Rxf4 is not legal. |
|Sep-12-03|| ||Marnoff Mirlony: What are you talking about... 34...Rxf4(?), I don't get it. |
|Sep-03-04|| ||wall: After 34.Rxf4 Rxf4 35.Qxf4, White seems to be better. In the game, 36.Rd1 was played. Maybe better is 36.Bxf3 (or 36.Bxg7+) Rxf3 37.Bxg7+ Kxg7 38.Qb2+ Kg8 39.Rxf3 Qxf3+ 40.Kh2. In the game, White played 38...Rxh3+, but has a mate after 38...Rf1+ 39.Kh2 Rf2+ 40.Kg3 Rg2+ 41.Kh4 Bf6+ 42.g5 Qxg5 mate. The game ended with 41...Qh2+ since 42.Ke1 Bxc3+ wins the queen. |
|Jul-06-06|| ||nummerzwei: It is funny that Donald Byrne only played Nf3 twice and both times he lost to Fischer.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||RookFile: I thought Byrne had a pretty good game at one point.|
|Apr-28-10|| ||DiscoJew: What a terrific effort from Bobby, my favorite move was 14...f5!|
|Apr-28-10|| ||fab4: Yes obviously 18..Bc6 walks into 19.Be5..
34.Rf4 looks possible to me,after 34..Rf4 35.Qf4 Fischer has some variations arising after a check on f3 with his Knight..say 35..Qc5+ 36.Bd4 Nf3+ and maybe Byrne was afraid of this so put his king on h1..
|Dec-23-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Hans Kmoch, annotating the game in <Chess Review>, thought it deserved a slight discounting from the famous <Game of the Century> between these two players. He suggested calling it the <Game of the Minute>.|

You got back up here <Phony> ?
|Dec-23-11|| ||TheFocus: Here's his proof:
Game of the Minute
The head, as has often been observed, is not the most important part of the body in tournament chess. Yet losing it can cause inconvenience as this game demonstrates. A fine game it is up to a point, both sides displaying plenty of imagination and top alertness. Indeed, Black slips and gets into trouble, but he still has chances of holding his own. Then, in the last minute, White starts flying "by the seat of his pants" and plunges into disaster.
In defeating Donald again, tournament winner Bobby has scored a success as sensational as in his famous "Game of the Century." Nevertheless, this second game, deserves a slight discount in praise and might rather be called the "Game of the Minute," – Kmoch in Chess Review, October 1957, pg. 308-309.
|Dec-23-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <TheFocus> Thanks. I can be lazy about quoting sources.|
|Jan-25-12|| ||Zugzwangovich: In this their first game against each other after their "Game of the Century", both played the same first two moves as in that game but then Byrne very quickly (and understandably) deviated with 3.b3.|
|Aug-06-13|| ||Mudphudder: Move 35 onwards must have hit Donald like a tidalwave....what a slaughter at the end.|
|Aug-07-13|| ||HeMateMe: I heard Kmoch called this one "The game of the weak".|
