|Jan-26-05|| ||passivefianchetto: nice game i liket it |
|Feb-25-05|| ||JoshuaJ8588: Here, Fischer shows why the Panno is the best way to meet the Samisch Variation. I have good results from this. |
|Mar-08-05|| ||JoshuaJ8588: The Panno. The best unpopular variation defense to d4 known. |
|Dec-28-05|| ||seeminor: 33.Rc6? is losing. IM Malcom Pein gives analysis by Deep thought "33 Qc3 Rxc3 34 Rxc3 Nc5 35 b4 Nb7 36 Rfc2 and black comes to a grisly end."|
|Dec-28-05|| ||syracrophy: <seeminor> I agree with you, 33.Rc6? was a blunder. I think that much better was 33.Rxc7 Nxd2+ 34.Rxd2 Qxc7 35.Rc2! Qb6 36.Rc8+ Ke7 37.Rxh8 Qxe3 with a little advantage to black|
|Dec-28-05|| ||HannibalSchlecter: Fischer has still got it! I don't care what anybody says, Fischer coming out of chess inactivity for twenty years and beating Spassky who was very active was a remarkable feat.|
|Dec-29-05|| ||seeminor: GM Viktor Kupreichek gave 33.Qc2 Rxc2 34 Rfxc2 Nxc1 35 Rc8+ Qd8 36 Kc1 Rf8!=. The rook could match the minor pieces.|
|Dec-29-05|| ||szunzein: After 33. Qc2 I'm not sure Fischer would have played Rxc2|
|Jul-02-07|| ||talisman: <szunzein> agree...he would have played KN x c1.|
|Aug-10-07|| ||RookFile: After 18 moves, it's hard to believe White can lose this game. Fischer shows his ingenuity here.|
|Sep-27-07|| ||sunyata3: seeminor ur line doesnt make sense 33. Qc3 cant b played whites queen is on d2|
|May-11-10|| ||Helios727: Actually, if 33 Qc3 Rxc3 34 Rxc3 Nd4 35 Nc2 Qa7 36 Nxd4 Qxd4, black is doing okay.|
|Apr-02-11|| ||DWINS: It's interesting how the world's strongest computer chess engine in 1992 is relatively weak compared to today's chess engines. Several of today's free engines would easily defeat the highly specialized and hugely expensive Deep Thought II of 20 years ago.|
Deep Thought II gave 33. Qc3 Rxc3 34. Rxc3 Nc5 35. b4 Nb7 36. Rfc2 Nd8 37. Rc7 Qf8 38. Rc8 as winning by either 39. Rxd8+ followed by 40. Rc8+ or 39. R2c7 followed by 40. Rd7 and Rcxd8 mate.
There are so many mistakes in this analysis that it's actually hard to believe that it came from a computer. Note how the computer misses a mate in two: 38. Bxd7+ Ke7 39. Bxb5#
33. Qc3 is the best move for White, but it leads to a draw. Instead of Deep Thought II's 35...Nb7?, 35...Qa7! 36. bxc5 dxc5 37. d6 c4 is completely even. There are many other variations but all lead to a draw according to Houdini 1.5a.
It will be interesting to see if the computers of tomorrow can improve on this.
|Feb-25-12|| ||screwdriver: Yea, that's interesting about how the computers in chess have improved. Fischer wins the rematch, but nobody thought much of it.|
|Feb-25-12|| ||RookFile: It's too bad Fischer never wrote books about his Spassky matches. He took a lot of secrets with him to the grave, when he might have cleared up a lot of misconceptions.|
|Feb-21-13|| ||Biff The Understudy: Well considering the content of the racists and paranoid rants he was spitting at the end of his life, I would say it's probably better he didn't write anything.|
Poor Fischer. Such a pathetic ending. Nice game by the way. Panno variation is just sexy, in my opinion more interesting than the c5 sac variation...
|Feb-21-13|| ||pojtr: What is the line after 33.Qc3 Nxc1? I can't see anything that saves white.|
|Feb-21-13|| ||DWINS: <pojtr>, if 33.Qc3 Nxc1 34.Qa3 and according to Houdini the position is absolutely dead even (0.00). A representative line might be 34...f6 35.Nc2 fxg5 36.hxg5 Nb3 37.Qxb3 Qxg5|
|Feb-21-13|| ||pojtr: <DWINS>, thanks.|
