Jun-10-04  King99: This game had exellent endgame.
Jun-10-04  Sneaky Victor 16: Long but pleasing to watch :)
Jun-17-05  lopium: At move 40, by not taking the rook with the bishop, Fischer played for a quiete better position I guess, instead of winning the equivalent of a pawn. I don't know If I would be able to play such a move.
Jun-17-05  Shams: I know all three of you are sure how Fischer wins this, so I'll pretend I do too.

Feb-26-16  caligula64: 10. ... Why not Bd7?
Feb-26-16  peterh99: Wonder why Ross didn't play NC3 or NE3 earlier instead of Qh6, and I wonder if he feared his Q could be trapped somehow after Qh6, Ng7; Ne3, f5?

Also wonder why Ros didn't play the Rossolimo Attack?

According to the database Rossolimo played 3.d4 more often than 3.Bb5+. Even against 2....Nc6 Rossolimo has an equal number of games in the database with 3.d4 and 3.Bb5.

Dec-26-16  prosperov: Good game
