|Jan-22-06|| ||rigel1503: I have to agree with you acirce, just aimlessly moving the rook to e1, makes no sense. Why not 30. f4, reinforcing the e5 pawn and setting up a fortress that will be difficult for Black to penetrate.|
|Jan-22-06|| ||RookFile: I don't think 30. f4 solves all of white problems. Black can play 30... Rb5 and ...Rxb4, giving up rook for bishop and pawn. White will then be
tied down in a very passive position, black has an active rook bearing down on b2, and a 2 to 1 queenside pawn majority. White's kingside pawns can't go anywhere, and black has a constant threat of ...Rb3 hitting the weakness on g3.|
|Jan-23-06|| ||Hesam7: At move 30 White is already lost. 30. f4 if played, would just make the game longer, it would not change the result. Here is a line I got using Fruit:|
30. f4 Re4+ 31. Kf2 Rd3 32. Ra1 a6 33. Re1 Kd5 34. Kg2 Rxe1 35. Bxe1 Rd1 36. Bc3 Rc1
White wont last very long, his king side pawns will fall.
|Nov-03-07|| ||HOTDOG: after 11...Nxd5,Fischer gives the variation 12.exd5 Nb4 13.Bc4 Bf5 14.Nxb4 Bxb4+ 15.Kf2 Re8,''with compensation for the pawn'',but after 15...Qh4+(instead of 15...Re8)and 16...Qxc4 Black immediately wins|

"The game hangs in the balance after 30.Ra1, despite Black's material advantage - it's not so easy to find a way to break through the enemy defenses. However, Lombardy committed "hara-kiri": he allowed Fischer to obtain an easily won pawn ending, based on the outside passed pawn."
|Aug-02-11|| ||phoenixdillenger: Why doesn't Lombardy play 27. f4? I would think it good to lock down that central pawn? Or does the f4 pawn now become a weakness with moves like g5.|
|Jul-27-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Too bad. Fischer hit Lombardy with just about every tactic except the pin, thus missing a chance to say:|
<"Forgive me Father, for I have pinned.">
|Jul-27-12|| ||vinidivici: I dont get it the title.
Is it Lombardy is a priest or something?
|Jul-27-12|| ||I play the Fred: <Is it Lombardy is a priest or something?>|
|Jul-27-12|| ||Llawdogg: Lombardy was Fischer's second during the 1972 WC Match.|
|Jul-27-12|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Is this the game where Fischer described the decisive move of the combination (here ...Bh4+!) as "the scorpion's sting at the tail's end" or something similar?|

<Is this the game where Fischer described the decisive move of the combination (here ...Bh4+!) as "the scorpion's sting at the tail's end" or something similar?>
"The scorpion's sting at the tail-end of the combination." It's game 25 in My 60 Memorable Games.
|Jul-27-12|| ||HeMateMe: Not a very good opening by Lombardy if he is already losing the exchange by move 14.|
|Jul-27-12|| ||twinlark: <Phony Benoni> LOL|
|Jul-27-12|| ||wordfunph: <Phony> hahaha! :-)|
|Jul-27-12|| ||kasparvez: Fischer on this game:
A passive non-developing move which leads to nothing. White wants to gain control of Q5, establishing a Maroczy bind with c4, Nc3 etc. But after going to all that trouble he can't prevent ...d5 after all. Correct is that tired old move- Nc3
Reckoning that the loss of a pawn is compensated by superior development. 9...Re8 is sound but passive.
Too intent on holding on to the pawn. Correct is 13. Be2 Bh4+! 14. g3 Bf6 15. 0-0 Bxb2 16. Rb1 =
This unexpected 'discovery' jolts white back to reality.
The scorpion's sting at the tail-end of the combination."
|Jul-27-12|| ||kasparvez: "19...Bd8
The smoke clears. Black is an exchange ahead for a pawn. But there are still great technical difficulties. White's Knight is on a dominating outpost and his pawn structure is solid.
Weaker would be Re8 because of g4 blocking the K-side.
This advance is necessary, but it undermines the support of the Knight [which can now be driven away].
Black has steadily improved his grip, but his winning chances are still problematic, hinging mainly on sacrificing on b4 or e5 at the right moment.
A gross blunder. Correct is 30. Ra1 a6 31. Rg1
Swapping everything leads to a won King and pawn ending."
|Jul-27-12|| ||TheTamale: Oh, man, this game is just crazy. So many moves a duffer would find inferior, but it all works out.|
|Jul-27-12|| ||Castleinthesky: Whose father?|
|Jul-27-12|| ||kevin86: Fischer donates on passed pawn so he can gain another (the outside passed pawn)|
|Jul-27-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<castleinthesky>
Catholic priests - Lombardy was ordained - are referred to by Catholics as "Father".
"Forgive me Father, for I have sinned" is the opening phrase a Catholic says when going to confession.
|Jul-27-12|| ||Once: I love the little rook stutter we get in this game: 29...Rc4/ 30...Rxc3. The rook goes from c8 to c4, waits for the white rook to commit itself, then pushes on to c3.|
The point is that the exchange of rooks pushes the white king back to his home square on e1. This means that the black king has the time to grab the key c4 square. From this point on, the white king has to serve time as nursemaid to the sickly c2 pawn.
Then it's a simple matter of forcing the white king over to the queenside to stop the outside passer, at which point the black king saunters over to the kingside to commit mass prawnicide.
|Jul-27-12|| ||BarcelonaFirenze: I know it must be quite easy for him, but I can't help admiring the fact that, after his 30th move, Fischer had everything calculated...|
|Jul-27-12|| ||dark.horse: I think the word that best describes Fischer's style is "economical". Zero BS, with every move directed to the desired end.|
|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 25 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
