May-04-05  Hinchliffe: Give the guy a break he was only 10. Interesting how both players are very well versed in the opening. The standard of coaching in the Soviet must have been amazing. Hence the production line of first class players. For me that it what makes Soviet chess so fascinating that the intrinsic personality of each player comes to the fore quite rapidly and decides on which direction they eventually take. I suppose this is what is expected when you instil the same knowledge into young players eventually it is there personality that takes over. Again the Soviet coaching system was aware of this aspect and would then marry up certain players with coaches who could best develop the individual. With this type of approach in practice it does make Robert Fischers achievements all the more extraordinary and that is not merant in any way a slight to the American coaches around at that period.

  wwall: Actually, he was 9, not 10.

or 24...Kf8 and if 25.Bxh6 Be7 26.Qg3 Bf6 should hold or win for Black.

or 26...Ke6 27.Qg4+ Kf7 28.Qh5+ and perhaps a draw by perpetual check.

28...Re7? loses. 28...gxh6 29.Qxh6+ Kf7 30.Bg6+ Ke7 31.Qg5+ Ke6 32.Qf5+ Ke7 should draw. If 28...Bc6 29.Bg5 Bd5 30.Bg6 Rec8 31.Qh8+ Bg8 32.Be4 (threatening 33.Bd5) Qf7 33.Rad1 Be7 34.Rd7 Nc6 35.Bxc6 Rxc6 36.Rxe7 should win for White.
