|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
|Aug-21-16|| ||offramp: User: Fast Gun has not posted here in over 8 years. I have his home address. He is retired and lives in one of those tall old buildings in Manhattan.|
I'll convey him your comment.
|Aug-21-17|| ||Toribio3: Boris could not breach Fischer's next move, Rh8, bingo!|
|Dec-13-18|| ||Albion 1959: PawnSac makes some erroneous comments here. Fischer was not 60 years old at the time he was 49! Three million dollars is nice work if you can get it. PawnSac probably couldn't even make three dollars. Retire in comfort, that is Fischer's prerogative since he felt he had nothing left to prove. But in the real world, the chess world does not stand still and in a constant state of flux (this is not too deep for you is it?) Fischer never proved himself to the likes of Karpov and Kasparov, who would surely have tested him. Nothing wrong with earning a living from the game, though I suspect he played this match for financial reasons. If money was Fischer's motivation hotshot PawnSac, then not play Kasparov? He would surely have made twice as much money, or maybe Fischer was afraid that Kasparov would have beaten him?!|
|Dec-14-18|| ||Granny O Doul: Soltis at the time expressed the idea that Spassky embarked on an extremely speculative attack because either he wins brilliantly, or the match is over. Win-win.|
|Dec-14-18|| ||RookFile: When Fischer became champ, he had nothing left to prove to anybody.|
|Dec-14-18|| ||sakredkow: Karpov begs to differ.|
|Dec-15-18|| ||RookFile: Really? Do you have a quote from Karpov that says Fischer had something to prove? |
Of course you don't.
