Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-29-04  ToTheDeath: Fischer's 14... Kg8 followed by doubling rooks is highly original and was highly praised, but can't white simply win material with 15. Bxe6 fxe6 Nxe6 etc.? The activity of Black's minor pieces would give good compensation for white's rooks and pawns, but I can't imagine this line being worse than the game continuaton.
Apr-29-04  ToTheDeath: That should be read as Kh8, of course.

Apr-30-04  ToTheDeath: Thanks crafty. After 19. Bd4 Nxb2 20. Nxb5 I think white is all right.

  perfidious: <TheFocus: Opponent's name is Julio.>

True, and this was noted at least as far back as 1972 by Wade and O'Connell.

This game provides an object lesson in how not to play against the Sicilian; if White is reduced to grovelling with such moves as f3 and Rc1 in this line, his opponent will have no problems.

A byproduct of White's passive play is that Fischer was enabled to implement an idea normally seen in the Hedgehog lines of the Symmetrical English with ....Kh8, ....Rg8, and ....g5-g4 to prise open the g-file.
