|Dec-24-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: <talisman: never play chess in a ping pong room.> Hear, hear. Spassky said in a tv interview that during a backroom incident before the third game, when Spassky allowed Fischer to impose his will, he knew that in that moment he had lost the match.|
|Dec-24-10|| ||sevenseaman: I think Fischer was a rare genius that the inefficient administration of the game lost in the quagmire of their quibbling - too prematurely. An irreparable blow to chess!|
|Dec-24-10|| ||muralman: I sat there wondering why the sacrifice. I knew there was something great in the offing. I could see that Fischer's Queen was going to exploit the space for good position. After I worked that out, I thought, what a great puzzle combination.|
|Dec-27-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: As an alternative to 13 Nc4 Fine gives 13 f4 Bd4+ 14 Kh1 Nf6 15 Nb5! Be3 16 Nxd6! Qxd6 17 Nc4 Qe7 18 Nxe3 Nxe4 19 f5 with advantage|
As an alternative to 14 Ne3 Reshevsky gives 14 Nxe5 Bxe5 15 Be3 followed by an early f4 with advantage.
Reshevsky makes an instructive comment about 14 Ne3 as well. He says that it aims to play the N to f5, but the plan is ill advised because Black is able to defeat the plan in time by means of the moves 14...Qh4 and 15...Ng4.
After 16 Nxg4 hxg4 Black's pawns have been mended which means that White has been deprived of his compensation for the bishop pair.
|Mar-21-11|| ||hottyboy90: Fischer played a good solid game there can't be any complaints as to how well he converted the win in such a drawish endgame.|

Thanks. But no thanks. This game had
been analysed to death before Karpov decided to get involved .
|Aug-08-11|| ||Petrosianic: For anyone wondering what I mean when I use the word "fanboy", whether it means anything specific, or just a generic insult, the previous comment captures it in a nutshell: a cult of adoration over the man, but little interest in his actual games. The above is remarkably similar to MrQuinn's comment about how he wanted to study Fischer's life, because his games were 40 years old and analyzed to death. Who cares about some dumb old world champion's analysis of those dumb old games?|
|Nov-08-11|| ||sevenseaman: <31...Bxc3>!! The move removed a defender of the e4 point to make
it 3 vs 2 and hence the logical advance.
It was an intensely expected move in battle for control
of e4. The point had become a gateway to penetration of White's
position and to ultimate demolition of the bulwark.
After the fall of E4 things simplify fast and Black is in sight
of victory. All <Spassky> moves thereafter are nothing but death
|Mar-09-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: This is without a doubt one of Fischer's excellent games that made a profound impression on me! |
|Mar-09-12|| ||RookFile: Actually, Karpov points out a spot in the middle game where Spassky had the pawn sac h4!, giving him excellent defensive possibilities. That was news to me, and I'm sure he's right.|
|Mar-09-12|| ||Penguincw: Nice job by Fischer. The first time ever he beat Spassky, and also with black (in a WCC match).|
|Jun-10-12|| ||hottyboy90: This was a good game,I'm not big into analyzing games to death but I am pretty impressed by what I saw and was wondering why Spassky resigned and as usual CG has a great source of information and many knowledgeable people.Thanks!|
|Jul-16-12|| ||offramp: Played on the 16th July 1972.
Fischer plays with inventiveness and all Spassky does is respond to his opponent's ideas. The final attack beginning with 36...Qb1 is really good.
|Oct-11-12|| ||Joe Fenn: I used to be able to see the games (Sp. vs. Fi.) played step by step. Now I can't, what gives?|

We still have Kingscrusher's analysis, with the honor of being introduced by a Geico advert!

If it's the pig with the pinwheel, I'll click through. If it's the caveman, the gecko or those silly new 'witch in a broom factory'-type ads, no way. I also liked the stack of cash with eyeballs, but haven't seen him in ages.

Fischer still would have won.
|Oct-13-12|| ||RookFile: Well, I guess that settles that. Thanks Harry!|
|Dec-18-12|| ||leka: The finnish player Kaarle Ojanen elo rating 2563 world ranking 89th showed how to beat tha Benoni.Kaarle Ojanen beat Paul Keres in 1960.Ojanen playe bishop d3! knight e2! f4!.Penrose copied this and beat Mikhail Tal.The Brits have rob hold up mug this line from Ojanen.This not a Penrose Tal line.IT IS OJANEN KERES LINE!!!!!!!|
|Dec-18-12|| ||12.12.12: 42. Ke3 Qd1|
|Mar-09-13|| ||toreohm: And what if 42. Ke1???|
|Mar-10-13|| ||DWINS: <toreohm>, 42.Ke1 Qxb4+ 43.Kd1 Qb3+ 44.Ke1 b4 is quite lost for White. Black will place his Queen on c2 simultaneously threatening mate on e2, the bishop on c1, and pushing the passed b and c pawns. White has no way to defend.|
|Mar-14-13|| ||Robyn Hode: Re: the TV interview and knowing he was lost if he accepted the room...if you think you're lost, for any reason, before the 3rd game of a 24 game match...then you shouldn't play. Fischer was down 2-0. Did he think he was lost.|
Spassky's response doesn't seem genuine.
|Mar-15-13|| ||toreohm: <DWINS> Sounds a good plan to me!|
