|Feb-04-05|| ||Halfpricemidge: Correct me if I'm wrong but why not 18.P-h6, B-e5 19.P-h7+, K-h8 20.B-h6 instead of 18.Knight sac? |
|Feb-04-05|| ||aw1988: 20...Nxe4 |
|Nov-25-05|| ||aerohacedor: Spassky had a good chance of winning this game if he only used the f5 pawn instead of the h5 pawn to take Fischer's rook in the 27th move. Even if Spassky's queen were actually placed in d7, Spassky could drive the pawns backed by his own queen against Fischer's cornered king.|
|Nov-25-05|| ||RookFile: I don't see anything for Spassky
after 27. fxg6 Qd7 (idea of Qh3+)
28. Kg2 e5 29. h6 f5
|Feb-13-07|| ||Zorts: 21...Qc7 IS a typo-it was actually Qd7! going after the pawn on f5 and forcing white to defend with 25.Qb1 otherwise 25.Qe1, Rg8 26.Rg6, Rxg6 27.hxg6, Kg7 28.Bh6+, Kxh6 29.Qh4+, Kg7 30.Qh7+, Kf8 31.Qf7#. RJF, however, was alert and avoided this position with 21...Qd7!|
|Aug-10-07|| ||RookFile: At first sight, 9..... Nd7 <can't> be right, but the more you think about it, the more logical it gets. The reason why it works is white has just used his own extravagant knight move, 9. Nc1, removing an attacker from the kingside. 9. Qd2 was probably normal. Fischer figures that if Spassky is going to spend a couple of moves to move a knight over to the queenside, it can't be bad to overprotect the e5 square.|
|Jan-18-08|| ||Paraconti: The champ's last game..|
|Jun-03-08|| ||Fast Gun: After this the last game of the match,
Fischer had played his final game of his career and disappeared into the wilderness with $5 million in his back pocket never to play again !! What a waste of chess talent:
|Jun-03-08|| ||wanabe2000: <Fast Gun> Not a waste, A Legacy!|
|Jun-04-08|| ||talisman: <Fast Gun> <what a waste> waste implies lack of work...Nuff Said.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||TheMacMan: fischer is the best of all time
|May-13-11|| ||AVRO38: Spassky probably underestimated the force of 20..Bxb2. Recapturing on a1 with the queen leads to a fatal fork on c2. The tempo lost neutralizing this allows 21..Qd7 and Spassky's attack is effectively over, ending the game and the match.|
|Jun-12-11|| ||wals: Rybka 4 x 64
Looking good, 17...Bb7, =-0.53.
18.Nf5, -3.58. Best, Nxb4, -0.53.
21.Kf1, -4.90. Best, Rb1 or Bxc5, -3.45.
22.Qb1, -6.04. Best, Bxc5, -4.90.
25.Qb1, -6.87. Best, Bg4, -6.24.
27.hxg6, -8.02. Best, fxg6, -7.06.
White resigned after 27...Kg7, -8.07.
White 7.23. Black 0.
within 0.84 of a pawn to the closing value.
White's biggest error was 18.Nf5,
was always on the backfoot after that move.
|Aug-06-11|| ||Zugzwangovich: In his 1992 book "No Regrets", Yasser Seirawan called Fischer's TN 9...Nd7 a boon to KID players everywhere. Can any of you booked-up theoreticians out there tell me if this move has stood the test of time?|
|Dec-11-11|| ||Penguincw: Wow. User: SwitchingQuylthulg & User: kevinatcausa now tie it up with 2 prizes each. Who will reach 3 first? Who will reach the limit first?|
|Dec-11-11|| ||RookFile: White's attack looks scary enough after 14. fxg4. It took great judgment on Fischer's part to play this way - just looking at the position, you do have to be concerned over whether black will be checkmated.|
|Dec-11-11|| ||OhioChessFan: What a patzer Black is. He never even moved his e Pawn.|
|Dec-11-11|| ||Petrosianic: Is that what great players do? Move their e pawn a lot?|
|Feb-25-12|| ||screwdriver: Hmmm. Spasky sacrifices lots of material unsoundly and loses. What was his rating when this match took place?|
|Jul-19-13|| ||hudapri: The last chapter.|
|May-11-14|| ||sicilianhugefun: The final fantasy... Robert James Fischer's footprint in the world of Chess is yet to be emulated...|
|Sep-09-14|| ||Apostolov: Good game !|
|Aug-21-16|| ||PawnSac: < Fast Gun: After this the last game of the match, Fischer had played his final game of his career and disappeared into the wilderness with $5 million in his back pocket never to play again !! What a waste of chess talent: >|
LOL. ok. wow.. what a maroon.
first of all, it wasn't $5M. the total purse was 5 mil and it was a split, something like 3.3 and 1.6 mil.. Now tell me hotshot.. if you could make over 3 MILLION DOLLARS in one month of work, would you consider that a waste of talent? if you or me or any other person on this site could make 3+ MILLION dollars in one month and retire in comfort, who would care what you think about it?!!!
ok so you are 60 years old and you play a match then retire.. whats wrong with that? How talented are you? can you make 3M in one month? LOL

I'll convey him your comment.
|Aug-21-17|| ||Toribio3: Boris could not breach Fischer's next move, Rh8, bingo!|
