Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-20-08  AdrianP: Timman gives Fischer's (!) analysis of 13 ...Nxc3 in the latest issue of NIC.
May-28-08  inthestepsofTal: Kasparov could have achieved advantage with the superstrong 17...Rd8!! and there are no good moves for white. I.e. Rg4 Rd5! and the e-pawn will be weak due to future Bc8-d7-c6xf3. 18.Rxd8 Qxd8 19.Bd3 Nf4 for instance.
Dec-09-16  seeminor: According to Timman Kasparov gave 13...Nxc3 14. Qg4 Qxe5 15.Bh4 Qe3+ 16.Rd2 Nxa2+ 17.Kd1 0-0 18.Qa4 e5 and apparently white is better.

But Fischer gave, instead of 18...e5?, 18...Qe5! 19.c3 b5 20.Qd4 Qxd4 21.Rxd4 e5 and black is better.
