|Dec-17-07|| ||al wazir: <CG>: Who dreamed up these clues? Obviously there are some very clever people browsing this site, but the contest's creator must be even cleverer.|
|Dec-17-07|| ||Riverbeast: It's games like this that make me think in his prime Fischer may have been able to beat Kasparov in his prime...NOBODY could defend like Fischer...He loved it when his opponents tried to attack him|
|Dec-17-07|| ||RookFile: I had a similar experience playing through this game... the defence is so ridiculously scary at every stage, and yet it all holds together....|
|Dec-20-07|| ||Arbitrarily0: Will someone explain the Najdorf poisoned pawn to me (7...Qb6)? I don't understand why white allows a pawn to be taken (8...Qxb2). What does white get in exchange for his missing pawn?|
|Dec-20-07|| ||paulalbert: The general idea is that for the pawn White gets a significant lead in development, presumably leading to an overwhelming attack. Fischer shows here that precise play enables him to defend against the attack and then counterattack. I think in this game Fischer had analyzed most everything at home, since he was a regular user of this variation of the Sicilian as black. It wasn't successful against Spassky, who played some new moves, in the 1972 match. Paul Albert|
|Dec-20-07|| ||Phony Benoni: Yes, WHite certainly went up in flames in this game. In fact, I can just imagine Fischer singing, "I fell into a burning Tringov fire."|
|Dec-20-07|| ||Jim Bartle: Down, down, down as the flames...|
|Jan-18-08|| ||Shams: <Phony Benoni> golf clap for that pun.|
|Oct-25-08|| ||PinnedPiece: <iron maiden: Like R Byrne vs Fischer, 1963, it's a little disappointing that White resigned to Fischer rather than allow the imminent beautiful mate. >|
Maybe I'm just slow but I fail to see a quick mate after 23 Nd1.
If still Nf2+
24 Nxf2 Qxf2
25 Rb1 and now what?
|Nov-13-08|| ||zev22407: Cool defense by Fischer turning the table on table on Tringov's 13)Nxe6
13)B-f6 looks better.|
|Apr-15-09|| ||Eduardo Leon: <PinnedPiece: Maybe I'm just slow but I fail to see a quick mate after 23 Nd1.>|
There is no mate, but black wins a piece and brings his rook to life with 23. ... Rxc8.
<zev22407: Cool defense by Fischer turning the table on table on Tringov's 13)Nxe6 13)B-f6 looks better>
Not really. 13. ... Bxc3, winning the queen was threatened.
|Dec-12-09|| ||BISHOP TAL: Good analigy gypsy except for the part you say he made a deal with the devil.He may have been blessed he was a tither at the time he won the world championship and he gave a good chunk when he won it.It may have been God sending those mind blocking waves to spassky and the russians couldnt detect that.Fischer Quit chess cuase he diddnt get his way on everything somthing i beleive is a symtom of asburgors disease.He became resentful and angry at God cuase he wasnt doing what he loved that made him mean and antisematic. Possibly Fischer new this might happen and delayed winning his own championship, though that might be alittle far fetched.|
|Jun-22-10|| ||zev22407: To Eduardo Leon my mistake
I mean 15)B-f6
|Oct-15-10|| ||sevenseaman: A sterling high quality defense against imminent doom by Fischer; reminiscent of what he did against Byrne in the 'Game of the Century'.|
The genius of Fischer is unquestionable. In the context of such outstanding ability, it was really sad that he went out of international contention/picture following his championship win over Spassky due to some internecine problems.
The game of chess was the biggest loser.
|May-31-11|| ||hedgeh0g: Basically an outright refutation of the 12.Bc4 line until 15.Bf6!! was discovered.|
|May-31-11|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @Hedgehog
I remembered the old Wade and O'Connell book of Fischer's collected games (published by Batsford) mentioning Euwe's magazine "Archives" (1965) giving an analysis to a win for white; Fischer refuted it!
15. Bf6 is, I believe, an innovation of Robert Byrne.
|May-31-11|| ||hedgeh0g: Yes, it is.
R Byrne vs Larry Evans, 1965
|Dec-13-11|| ||Zugzwangovich: <paulalbert: I've been trying to find the source unsuccessfully, but, as beautiful as this game is by Fischer, apparently it was a refutation of Nxe6 he had found in home analysis, and he took only about 5 minutes to play this whole game.> You may be thinking about another Fischer win with the poisoned pawn Najdorf, specifically Bilek-Fischer, 1962 Stockholm Interzonal. According to Andy Soltis (Chess Life, June 1986), "The game itself is impressive, but the stunning story was told by the clocks. Bilek took two and a half hours, Fischer less than 10 minutes. It was all home analysis by Fischer."|
|Sep-07-12|| ||Luigi Bros: Fischer did what he should have done here I Bilek vs Fischer, 1962|
|Sep-07-12|| ||RookFile: Always a pleasure to player over a game from the greatest expert on the Poisoned Pawn Sicilian.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Sniffles: 23 Pg3??|
|Sep-10-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: That is an ice cold, computer-like refutation of Nxe6.|
|Sep-10-14|| ||Everett: Home-cooked.|
|Sep-10-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: Yes with no Mr. Fritz Rykba.|
|Apr-16-17|| ||kbob: This seems to be the only game in this database where the sacrifice 15. Nxe6 was tried. I thought I remembered from analysis at the time that 18. ... Nc6 was Fischer's big novelty. For what it's worth, my crude version of stockfish immediately jumps to -4.5 after the sac.|
