  An Englishman: Good Evening: Impressive upset draw by Silverman. Although I suspect that if this were a tournament game, Fischer would have been able to find a win, Black deserves credit for his willingness to take the fight to his opponent and even sacrifice material for the attack.
Sep-29-05  BadTemper: 12...Qa5+ leads to huge advantage for black.
19...Nxe5 is winning for black. I noticed it while reading a book and Fritz says so as well.

Crafty how about you?

Sep-29-05  aw1988: I find those moves psychologically impossible for Silverman against Fischer.
Sep-30-05  schaumburgstew: Interesting comments about my game with Fischer. I followed Fines analysis with 12-cxd4. I could have won a pawn with 14- qb4+. I rejected19-NXe5 because of QG7. Is 19 RxE2+ sound?
Sep-30-05  who: Fritz gives 19...Rxe2 20.Kxe2 Qxd4 21.Rf1 Qxe5+ 22.Re3 Qc7 23.Qg7 Rd8 with slight advantage to white. It likes your move better.
Feb-15-14  morfishine: A well played game. One thing, Fischer had his problems from time-to-time with the French: Fischer vs C Clement, 1964
