  Steppenwolf: Boring. Chess was so Boring before Kasparov came along.
Jan-16-06  setebos: Fischer beats a schmuck (yawns)
Mar-22-06  Volmac: The player behind the white pieces is not Sidney Norman Bernstein but Yaakov Bernstein who finished last at the tournament in Nathania. Fischer was first with 11,5/13.

  Ulhumbrus: 9...f5 may give Black a good game in the end, unless White reacts strongly by 10 exf5 gxf5 11 Ng5 threatening both Qh5 and Bd5.
Apr-21-06  Jarlaxle: try a M. Tal game <steppenwolf> and you will see your judgement is a little off.
Apr-21-06  mack: <setebos: Fischer beats a schmuck (yawns)> <Steppenwolf: Boring. Chess was so Boring before Kasparov came along.>

Sometimes I have to remind myself why I stopped coming to chessgames for a while.

Nov-10-07  ForeverYoung: On 10 exf5 Qxf5! is probably what Bobby would have played. You are right about 10 ... gxf5? 11 Ng5!

This approach used by Bobby is worth noting and using. It sure beats the deadeye equality of ... 0-0 and ... f5.

  Resignation Trap: As <Volmac> indicated over two years ago, White in this game was not Sidney Norman Bernstein , but a player from Israel with the name Yaacov Bernstein. Here is the crosstable from this event: .

Mar-05-12  screwdriver: Another Fischer opponent bites the dust.
Aug-05-13  Zugzwangovich: I seems Fischer must have seen that 17...e5 gives back the exchange and restores material equality. Did he have any better alternative?

  TrueFiendish: it's an exchange sac. he ends up with an overwhelming position after giving back the exchange.
