|May-10-06|| ||al wazir: <Confuse: i dont understand? why didnt black move her queen after taking fischers?> Well, white already has two pieces in exchange for the ♕. If, e.g., 15...Qc8 then 16. Rf1 Bg4 17. Nxf8 Bxf8 18. f5. White has pretty good attacking chances and almost even material.|
|May-10-06|| ||blingice: Because he would've lost his bishop, and he wins more material by trading his bishop for rook and queen for knight.|
|May-10-06|| ||olaf4lena: Again, Why not 15... PxN|
|May-10-06|| ||blingice: Then Bxe6+, and then white takes the bishop. It is now two minor pieces and a pawn for a queen, but Fischer has more active pawns. Black ends better with a more protected king, and a minor piece for a rook. Sillars way seems to be best. |
Shall we consult <crafty> again?
|May-10-06|| ||epithet: i love the pun|
|May-10-06|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: What's Black's best move on 17? 17...Bc7? 17...Re8? 17...Kh8? Something else?|
|May-10-06|| ||Manic: Fisher misses mate in four after Ke8, starting with Bc6+. I think black should've moved her queen or taken the pawn.|
|May-10-06|| ||ReikiMaster: What can white do after 16...Rfxd8 and Bf8? Black is up in material.|
|May-10-06|| ||LexBenaim: Good call manic. (Bc6+, Bc5+, Nxg7+, Rf5#, right?) That's pretty.|

i agree with you.
|May-10-06|| ||blundermaker: Why is 17.. d5 exactly a blunder? It seems to be a pointless move, indeed, but not a losing blunder(for me, which doesn't mean much :( ).|
|May-10-06|| ||benigno: <Confuse: i dont understand? why didnt black move her queen after taking fischers?> I was wondering that too. Doesn't 15... Qb6 win for black.|
|May-10-06|| ||keypusher: I'm no crafty, but if 15...fe 16 Nxe6 threatens the queen. If then 16....Qc8 17. Nxf8+ and 18. Nxf3. 15....Qb6 looks better. Not sure what White does then.|
|May-10-06|| ||El Tiburon: I was thinking 15...♕a5+. Doesnt this save her queen as well as preserve some fairly equal piece exchanges? The queen ends up in an awkward spot, but after some exchanges... I would much rather have a queen roaming around on a sparse board than a couple of lesser pieces. Of course, I'm just a patzer with an internet connection.|
|May-10-06|| ||kevin86: Nice pun: it not only fits in with the name but the game as well. Strange game-it looks like white is giving up the store,but he ends up ahead in material. Typical Fischer: he makes a rook and three pieces seem like about two rooks,four pieces,and a partridge in a pear tree.|
|May-10-06|| ||itz2000: it's a big honor to have one game in database, vs Fischer, and to be in Game of the day.. isn't it?|
|May-10-06|| ||e4Newman: more of that wonderful annotation we love|
|May-10-06|| ||dakgootje: when i would be in the opportunity to play against fisher and he offers his queen this way i would probably accept it... if i would lose this way after that i wouldnt be too happy though ;-)|
|May-10-06|| ||crafty: 15...fxe6 16. ♗xe6+ ♔h8 17. ♘xf3 ♕a5+ 18. ♗d2 ♕a4 (eval -2.23; depth 16 ply; 1000M nodes)|
|May-11-06|| ||blingice: For those too lazy to play it out, <crafty>'s line ended up:|

Seems pretty surprising that Sillars missed that though.
|May-24-06|| ||samikd: Even 15..Qa5 would have won. Horribly unsound sacrifice by Fischer|
|Nov-22-06|| ||KateGasser: I want to thank those who posted comments on this game, which I played at the age of 16 under my maiden name.|
|Nov-22-06|| ||Maatalkko: <KateGasser> That's awesome that you played him! Welcome to the site! Do you know <Kingsider>? I was reading the other posts and I wondered how he knew your full name, when the website only says "K Sillars".|
|Jan-24-11|| ||Caissanist: Kate Gasser was fairly well known in the seventies, both as one of the country's top female players and as the daughter of Rob Sillars, who wrote "Reader's Showcase" in Chess Life. That column featured games by players of below-master strength (or "patzer's games", as one critic called it). Rob was not a particularly strong player himself but he wrote a great column; it was the first thing I read when I got the magazine every month, since they were games that a class E player could understand and appreciate.|
|Nov-30-14|| ||TheFocus: From a simul in Chicago, Illinois on March 22, 1964. |
Fischer scored +56=11-4.
