|Oct-07-03|| ||ughaibu: Fischer had a strong preference for bishops over knights so in this game 7.Nf3 may have been the winning move from the psychological standpoint. |
|Oct-07-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: Fischer's preference and stronger intuition for the bishops is why I've always wondered why he played the Nimzo Indian occasionally. His record is relatively bad with it. |
|Feb-25-05|| ||aw1988: A powerful game. |
|Nov-16-06|| ||ToTheDeath: It's amazing how much resistance Fischer puts up in losing positions.|
|Nov-16-06|| ||Pawn and Two: In his book, "How To Beat Bobby Fischer", Edmar Mednis stated after Black's 36th move, <Clearly the "automatic" active 36...Re2 must be the right move. Fischer would be the first to know and realize it. He did not like that White could then force a draw with 37.Rc7 Ke8 38.Rc8+, etc>.|
Mednis was of the opinion that the losing moment occurred at move 37. He believed Black would still have excellent drawing chances if he had played 37...Rf5.
|Nov-17-06|| ||RookFile: Yeah, there was another game, I think it was against Matulovich, where Fischer lost the exchange right out of the opening. So, Fischer defended tenaciously, and could have made a draw by 3 fold repetition - and spurned it! Later, the game ended up as a draw anyway.|
|Nov-03-10|| ||elohah: Notes...
17...de 18 Bxf7+! Kxf7 19 Qd5+ ( 19 fe+? Kg8 20 Qd5+ Kh8 21 Qxd7 Qxe5
[ also 21...Qxc2=] 22 Bf2 Nc4= [ 23 Rde1 Qb5 24 Rxe7 Qxd7 25 Rxd7 Nxb2];
Also 22...e6=) 19...e6 (note that this move is forced.)
Now not 20 Qxd7+? Qxd7 21 Rxd7+ Kg8 22 Bc5 ( 22 fe Bxe5=) Rxf4 23 Rxf4 exf4 24 Bxb4 Nc6 25 Bc3 Bxc3=.
20 fe+!, since if 20...Ke7 21 Bg5+! wins. If 20...Kg8 21 Qxe6+! wins.
|Nov-03-10|| ||elohah: Finally, if 20...Nf6 21 Qd7+! Qxd7 22 Rxd7+ Kg8 23 exf6 Bxf6 24 Bc5 wins. Or 23...Rxf6? 24 Rxg7+! Kxg7 25 Bd4 wins.|
|Nov-04-10|| ||elohah: 24...Mednis suggests 24...Re4. White can then respond 25 Rc6 d5 (or Black just dumps a pawn) 26 Rxd5, with complications that will likely still favor White.|
28...Since just 28...Rxf4 is possible, one should assume that Bobby's move is stronger. Mednis gives it an exclam.
55 Kf5! Ne7+ 56 Kxf4 Nd5+ 57 Kg4 Nxb6 58 h7 Re4+ 59 Kg5 wins.
