|May-11-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: This is the game where Keres worked out a draw during adjournment, then forgot it, right?|
|May-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I think so|
|May-11-09|| ||Eyal: That's what Keres said, according to Fischer, though I find that a bit hard to believe - how could he forget such a critical drawing line which occurs immediately after the resumption of the game (it was adjourned at 58.Rxh6+)?|
|May-11-09|| ||IMlday: Wrong was 60.Ba6? since 60.Bf1! Bf7 61.Rh4! Rg1 62.Ba6! Ra1 63.Bc8 Ra4+ 64.Ke5 Bh5! 65.Bb7 Ra5+ 66.Kxf4 Rb5 57.Be4 is still winning.|
60..Bf7? is losing again. Better was 60..Bb1+ 61.Kxf4 Rf5+ 62.Kg4 Rf6 when 65.Rxf6 Kxf6 draws.
|May-12-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Maybe Keres was tired, I don't know. We all make mistakes.|
|Sep-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Fischer must have loved this ending|
|Jan-22-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: On 32 Bxh6 an alternative to 32...Re6 is 32...Rc8 not allowing White's Rook to keep the c file. White's Rook goes later to c7 and a7 and wins the a6 pawn.|
|Jun-07-10|| ||elohah: Having just recently come into possession of 60MG, which I read long ago when I wasn't strong enuf to fully appreciate it, my assessment is that Fischer is much stronger than both Kasparov or Karpov were at the same age. MUCH stronger.|
|Jun-07-10|| ||Blunderdome: Interesting position after 36. Kf2. Black is a pawn up but his pawns are terrible.|
|Jul-25-10|| ||tentsewang: A very strong play by young Fischer at the time which brought thunder-quake in the chess world of russia.|
|Aug-22-12|| ||csmath: Great Keres falls for two-move combination by 16-year-old Bobby. I guess Botvinnik would say "you need to work on those two-move tactics." Mind you it is a great positional game otherwise.|

Anyone is capable of such errors: here's one from the Patriarch himself.
Botvinnik vs Pachman, 1947
My guess would be that you would have us all believe you've never fallen into a two-mover yourself, as you sit in your perch On High and criticise a player you couldn't have touched on the best day of your life.
|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 8 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||Eggman: Carlsen just beat Caruana in this ending!|
|Oct-08-12|| ||notyetagm: Game Collection: I MAKE YOUR PAWNS LOOK LIKE YOUR GRANDMA'S TEETH|
Fischer vs Keres, 1959 23 Nf5-h6+! sham sacrifice destroys the Black pawns structure
|Oct-09-12|| ||csmath: <Carlsen just beat Caruana in this ending!>|
These endings are essentially different.
|Oct-10-12|| ||Eggman: <<These endings are essentially different.>>|
|May-28-13|| ||hoodrobin: <AnalyzeThis: We all make mistakes.>|
You meant: we make all mistakes. :-)
|Jul-25-14|| ||rickycota: Fischer had a better pawn structure even though Keres was a pawn up so Fischer exchanged queens and delivered a beautiful endgame|
|Apr-04-15|| ||Howard: Anyone know of any computer improvements to this game ?|
It looked pretty complicated at one point, so I wondered.
|Aug-12-15|| ||Serbon91: Could black play 38.Bxb5? It looks so simple,so I'm probablly missing something...|
|Aug-12-15|| ||Serbon91: Ohh,know see,cannot take own pawn...God,time for bed...|
|Sep-28-15|| ||sfm: <Serbon91: Ohh,know see,cannot take own pawn...>
I know this so well from my own games. I mean, here we get all these great winning ideas, but some stupid little detail screws it all up.|
|Jan-07-16|| ||SeanAzarin: Taking the Bait|
|Mar-29-17|| ||Kent Swearingen: Fischer gives 41...Be6 a "!"" in MSMG, with the comment, "sacrificing a second Pawn for counterplay on the open QB-file", but Stockfish sees this as a serious error. It gives 41...Bf5 as equalizing at a depth of 45/75, but evaluates +1.54 after 41...Be6. Its move also sacs a Pawn for activity, but also forces the exchange of Bishops. Fischer later notes White's need to keep the Bishops on to avoid a draw. My only point: chess is hard.|
