|Apr-14-06|| ||chancho: Fischer played this game with impeccable mastery.|
|Apr-14-06|| ||whatthefat: Yes, it's certainly convincing. By the 20th move it's already difficult to suggest an active plan for white, and he simply gets whittled away over the next 20 or so. The word that comes to mind is 'clarity'.|
|May-14-09|| ||Hugh the Drover: In the end, Fischer's pawn majority resembles an electric fan falling into Donner's bathtub electrocuting him. Black's Rook, roaming on the seventh and eighth ranks, is the plug.|
|May-14-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Fischer saw that his rook wouldn't be trapped, and that he could get back in time for the a pawn.|
|May-14-09|| ||Riverbeast: Fischer really didn't have a lot of respect for Donner's playing ability...He once said Donner was "the weakest grandmaster in the world"|

What I wouldn't give to be the weakest grandmaster in the world!

Yeah, but you are a lot closer than I am.
|Jul-18-09|| ||technical draw: Again we see a cold blooded Fischer. White has a passed pawn and it looks like Fischer's rook is trapped. But everything is calculated. The rook gets back in time and white is left with an empty feeling. (like most of Fischer's opponents)|
|Oct-06-10|| ||ozmikey: As well as Fischer played this game, I'm not sure whether he would have been able to break through but for the blunder 22. Rd2, which allows him to take the seventh (26. Rd1? Bxf2+ is the crucial tactical point that allows him to). But the way he wraps up the game after that is very impressive indeed.|
|Oct-06-10|| ||AnalyzeThis: Sure, white needs to make at least one mistake for black to win.|
|Oct-06-10|| ||Atking: A pleasure to see.|
|Nov-23-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: In playing over this game again, I was struck at how after 20. Bc1, black did not trade bishops.|

If Black exchanges right off, d6 is weak and he helps White's development, plus at the moment, Black's bishop was not a worse piece than White's. Once Fischer got his king to cover the d file, no problem.
|Jan-27-12|| ||screwdriver: It seemed like a nice methodical win by Fisher.|
