|Oct-28-05|| ||DeepBlade: Cant see the mate, I dont understand why Black resigns here, could somebody explain that to me?
I guess losing a Knight with no compensation agains Fisher means you should resign immediatly. And Black is underdeveloped, simply neglected.|
|Oct-28-05|| ||RookFile: Yeah, the notes give 6.... Nc5
as a good move, which is silly -
6.... d5 or maybe 6.... f5 are the
only moves you even consider here.
|Oct-28-05|| ||Anatooly Homedepotov: Ann O'Tating is having some fun with her analysis of this game.|
|Oct-28-05|| ||dzanone: Why did Fischer move Be3? Why not the immediate Bxh7+ Kxh7 11. Ng5+ followed by Q-h4?|
|Oct-28-05|| ||drmariogodrob: <dzanone> There's no reason to give the piece back right away with an unclear end, since after 10. Bxh7 Kxh7 11. Ng4+ Kg3 the King, while uncomfortably out in the open, is not in immediate mortal danger. These complications are unnecessary since the win is otherwise exceedingly clear.|
|Oct-28-05|| ||RookFile: drmariogodrob is quite right, practically speaking of course. And
remember that this is a simul, Bobby's got 40 other boards going on at the
same time, and just wants to win
this as simply as possible.
Having said all this, whether or not
10. Bxh7+ Kxh7 11. Ng5+ Kg6 12. h4
works or not is very interesting....
|Oct-28-05|| ||Anatooly Homedepotov: Yep, <drmariogodrob> is right. 10. Bxh7+ is unecessary and complicates White's task needlessly. There is no immediate crush. Look at these lines: 10. Bxh7+ Kxh7 11. Ng5+ Kg8! 12. Qh5 Bf5! 13. Nge4 Bg6 14. Qe2 Bd4 15. Bg5 Bxc3+ 16. bxc3 Qe8 17. Ng3 Qxe5, etc. OR 12. Qe4 Re8 13. Qh7+ Kf8 14. Qh8+ Ke7 15. Qxg7 Kd7 16. Qxf7+ Qe7. Looks like New Orleans. 11. ...Kg6? looks worse for Black: 12. h4 dxe5 13. h5+ kf6 14. Rf1+ Ke7 15. Qxe5+ Kd7 16. Rxf7+ Qe7 17. Rxe7+ Bxe7 18. Qe6+ Kd8 19. Nxf7+ Rxf7 20. Qxf7, etc.|
|Jan-05-07|| ||piroflip: He should help the other players in the simul by playing on.|
Also, there is every chance that he has looked forward to playing a super GM all his life, so why give in so soon.
|Jan-05-07|| ||micartouse: <He should help the other players in the simul by playing on.>|
I disagree, although this is one of those matter of taste issues. I think it's probably bad manners to play on a full piece down against Fischer and that resigning when he did was honorable. Also, it wouldn't really have helped the other players since this board no longer will consume any of Fischer's energy.
I agree it's exciting to play a super GM, but the game's over and Black acknowledged that to his credit.
|Jan-05-07|| ||Holden: <why give in so soon>|
Because it would be insulting to play on. Playing on in a lost position "to help the other players in the simul" is shameful at best.
Black showed respect to his opponent and demonstrated his own clarity of mind to see that that this game is over 1-0.
|Nov-25-10|| ||gentsquash: How does White win the knight after 6.... d5 ?
Can Black simply leave the knight on e4, and eventually
castle king-side, with pawns on d5 and f5?
Player <RookFile> mentions both moves
6. ... d5 and 6. ... f5,
and refers to "the notes". What notes are these, please?
|Nov-25-10|| ||Sastre: White can't win the knight on e4 after 6...d5.|
