Sep-15-05  rjsolcruz: This is one of the games in the Meralco-sponsored "Beat Bobby Fischer" series in the Philippines. Meralco is the country's prime electric utility company. And it is the home of the Meralco Chess Club who has the likes of titled players Lobigas, Balinas, Cabrido and Cabellon in its fold at one time or another.

  technical draw: Fischer gives up the exchange early on. A speculative sacrifice or calculated play? I don't know but Fischer then crushes this high rated NM from Philippines.
Mar-20-12  screwdriver: It looked like the average crushing Fischer was handing out in 1967.
May-02-12  screwdriver: Yes, white can't take the rook on c4 or Bobby simply recaptures with the knight attacking white's queen on d2 and attacking white's rook on b7 with his queen on c8. The final move Queen f8 to c8 carried this dual threat to it.
Aug-10-17  SpiritedReposte: I love this exchange sacrifice from the black side of the Sicilian.

Usually end up with a pawn, two bishops on highways and whites pawn structure is often left in tatters. The initiative is often too great for white.
