|Apr-03-05|| ||RookFile: Olafsson plays Fischer's own 6.Bc4
against him and wins.
|Aug-20-07|| ||Inf: Here Fischer lost on the exchange. a rook for knight? that cost him the game...|
|Aug-20-07|| ||euripides: The Rxc3 sacrifice is often very good for Black in the Sicilian. Here the problem is f6. Gligoric later played the same sacrifice a move earlier, omitting Nb6, and retaining more control over f6: D Ciric vs Gligoric, 1965|
|Aug-20-07|| ||Cactus: Why not 37...Qxa1?|
|Aug-20-07|| ||euripides: <Cactus> I think <37...Qxa1> 38.Qxg5 and mate on g7 cannot be prevented.|
|Aug-21-07|| ||Cactus: Oh! How didn't I see that?|
|Sep-24-07|| ||smarterthanbobby: how old was fisher IN THIS GAME?
WAS HE ABLE TO DRIVE?

Cactus: Why not 37...Qxa1?
( THE REASON CACTUS IS THE FOLLOWING )
MOVE white 37Qxa1 - black QXG5
38 QUEEN ANYWHERE - QG7! MATE
see the queen is OUT OF PLACE TO
PRVENT THE MATE, That's why the catle
is able to FORCE fisher out OFF THE BACK RANk.... HOPE THAT HELPED...
euripides: <Cactus> I think <37...Qxa1> 38.Qxg5 and mate on g7 cannot be prevented. YES THIS IS TRUE.. just confirming...

|Sep-01-09|| ||meth0dSNK: 14.. Nc5|
|Nov-08-09|| ||Plato: <meth0dsnk: 14... Nc5>|
More like 14...Rxc3!
14...Nc5 does not control the critical d5 square. After 15. Bxf6 Bxg6, 16.Qg4 followed by Bd5, White's game is more pleasant. Fischer's move 14...Nb6 is better than that.
But 14...Rxc3! is a great thematic exchange sacrifice that would have given Fischer great compensation after 15.bxc3 Nxe4, 16.Bxe7 Qxe7, 17.Nxe4 Bxe4, because of White's horrible pawn structure.
|May-10-12|| ||Peter62: Plato discusses 14.--,Rxc3!? and actually it seems playable. I analysed after the noted line 15.bxc3 Nxe4 16.Bxe7 Qxe7 17.Nxe4 Bxe4 and tried 18.c4 for exchanging the poor pawns, but find that 18.--,Qg5! (18.--,Nb6 because of 19.Qe2!) gives black counterplay, i.e. 19.Rf2 (White wants to take at d6) 19.--,Nf6 20.Qxd6? Ng4! 21.Re2?! Qf4!! with a winning attack! On instead 18.Qe2 then is 18.--,d5 good. Conclusion so far: Black has good compensation!|
|Nov-12-13|| ||zydeco: 7.a3 and 9.Ba2 seems like an inferior version of the Sozin (losing a tempo compared to 7.Bb3). Fischer probably figured he should take advantage and got carried away with 15.....Rxc3.
I wonder if black could have defended better with 21....Bg6: if 22.h4 h5. Maybe white has 22.Rf5 but then 22....Qc8 or just 22....Re8 intending 23.h4 Qf8.|
|Mar-22-17|| ||Sally Simpson: The result should be changed from 1-0 to 2-0. Fischer lost it twice!|
The game was adjourned, Fischer sealed but resigned before the game resumed. (the game here gives 45...Bf5 but Bobby wrote something else down.)
When they opened the sealed envelope it was discovered Fischer had sealed an illegal move which would have lost the game on the spot.

|Mar-22-17|| ||Petrosianic: In that case, Capablanca retained his title against Alekhine. Because, as is well known, to beat Alekhine meant beating him 3 times; once in the opening, once in the middlegame, and once in the ending. That makes the final score of the match 9-6 in Capablanca's favor.|
|Mar-22-17|| ||Sally Simpson: You are indeed correct Petrosianic, you send the correction for the Capablanca - Alekhine match and I'll get this game changed to read 2-0.|
