|Mar-09-12|| ||Penguincw: I think the idea is to deflect the queen away from rather e4, or d3.|
|May-29-12|| ||chaamjamal: I tried shredder chess and it did suggest 11.... exd4 but for 27 it suggested Fischer's move 27.... Bxa4.|
|May-29-12|| ||diceman: <hottyboy90:
Spassky played really horribly here.>
Taimanov, Larsen, Petrosian, the players in the 1970 Palma Interzonal,
top grandmasters at the 1970 Herceg Novi blitz event,
Spassky during the rest of the 1972 match, and during the 1994 match,
all had the same problem.
|May-29-12|| ||RookFile: Gligoric on 11... Ng6:
"A great move by a great player."
|May-29-12|| ||Whitehat1963: Not being Fischer, Spassky, or Houdini, I think the resignation is a bit early. What's the best finish?|
|May-29-12|| ||RookFile: 28. Qxa4 Qxe4 and try and find a defense to both Qxe1 and Qxg2.|
|May-29-12|| ||unferth: <Whitehat1963> If 29 Qxa4, Qxe4 threatens mate on both g2 and e1; if 29 Qb1, c1 or d2, Bxd1 30 Qxd1 Qxe4 31 Qd2 Qe2 32 Qxe2 Nxe2 and the a pawn can't be stopped.|
|May-29-12|| ||Whitehat1963: But what if white declines the bishop offer?|
|May-29-12|| ||Petrosianic: 28. Q-N1 BxB 29. QxB QxP leaves Black two pawns up and with pressure on White's remaining center pawns. It's hopeless.|
|May-29-12|| ||Whitehat1963: Thanks, guys (gals?)!|
|May-29-12|| ||TimothyLucasJaeger: And after unferth's <28 Qd2 (or similar) Bxd1 29 Qxd1 Qxe4 30 Qd2 Qe2>,if white tries|
31 g3, hoping to get his bishop to d2 with gain of tempo, black can reply
31 ... Nh3+ 32 Kh1 Qxd2 32 Bxd2 Nf2+ 33 Kg2 Nd3 and once again the black knight controls c1 long enough to render white's bishop impotent against the impending advance of the a-pawn.
|Jun-10-12|| ||hottyboy90: Good response King Death,funny thing was Spassky followed all the right principles of play and yet even without the Qc2 he would have had many defensive problems.|
|Jun-10-12|| ||RookFile: Yes, Spassky obtained a protected passed pawn, and Fischer knew it didn't matter. When I play and let the other guy have a protected passed pawn, I lose. The great players make it look easy.|
|Jun-11-12|| ||hottyboy90: Yes,us mere mortals can only dream RookFile.|
|Jan-11-13|| ||Chris321: Fischer was a genius when it comes to chess!....well thats from the point of view of the mortals like myself!...to come to the point,tell me anybody please:why did Fischer played 20... g5 and why didn't Spassky played 21.Bxg5 ?
Anyone?,cause i cant figure it out!|
|Jan-11-13|| ||NM JRousselle: The pawn on h6 defends the g5 pawn.|
|Jan-19-13|| ||leka: Diceman. You are correct.The players from 1962 to 1972 played against Fischer really badly.Gligoric Larsen Taimanov Spassky Panno Benkö Portisch and so on.They played under 2000 elo rating level against Fischer many times.Gliroric lost the rook for knight.Hort blunder a piece.Taimanov made a blunder lost piece against Fischer|
|Jan-19-13|| ||perfidious: Under 2000 level? Really?|
|Mar-07-13|| ||Chris321: Thanks NM J Rousselle(yea obviously!...the version of the game i had had the pawn on h7 still...so wrong diagram!)|
|Mar-07-13|| ||diceman: <perfidious: Under 2000 level? Really?>|
1863 to be exact.
|Apr-10-13|| ||teddysalad: Did Spassky ever comment on why he resigned so early in this game? After losing for the first time ever under unusual circumstances to Fisher in the little ping-pong room in the back in game 3 he played a strong draw against Bobby back in the main hall in game 4; yet here he bails out after 27 moves in a position that people who know a lot more about chess than I do say he could have fought for a draw. To me, this is the key game of the match, not games 3, 6 or 13. This is the game that Boris seems to acknowledge that Fischer is a better chess player than he is at that moment in time and seems more intent on saving energy to wait for a battle he could win.|
|Apr-10-13|| ||Just Another Master: this was a bad game for a 2400, for Spassky its quite unbelievable|
|Apr-10-13|| ||DWINS: <teddysalad: Did Spassky ever comment on why he resigned so early in this game?>|
He resigned because his position is hopeless. He either gets mated or loses a bunch of pawns. The people who believe he could have fought for a draw were probably referring to the position before he blundered with 27.Qc2.
|Apr-10-13|| ||Petrosianic: Yeah, no comment is necessary here.|
|Apr-10-13|| ||RookFile: Gligoric described Fischer's ...Ng6 as a great move by a great player. I believe that Fischer learned from this loss - here he waited too long, and Reshevsky was able to put that h4 knight into f5 instead:|
