  Phony Benoni: I don't think this is what Fischer had in mind.

By the way, it's not the first time this disaster occurred at the US Open. In Louis Levy v. Bill Wheeler, Atlanta, 1967, Black chose to drag the game out with 12...Ke7 13.Qe6#.

  fredthebear: Taking flight in the final position yields 12...Ke7 13.Qe6#, a Swallow's Tail/Gueridon Mate making use of White's Q-B spearhead. Better for Black but costly is 12...KxBf7 (removing the guard) 13.QxQd8. So resignation is certainly in order.

  fredthebear: Note that if 8...BxQd1?? leads to Legall's Mate by the three White minor pieces.
