It is very odd to see Fischer playing 1. d4

  technical draw: <Fischer was 11 years old when this game was played.>

And his opponent played like a 2 year old.

  Benzol: It is odd see Bobby opening with 1.d4 but this game is proof that he did it at least once.
Dec-05-10  BobbyDigital80: Never in a tournament game though Benzol!

  perfidious: <Benzol> Here's the only other example of which I'm aware, though as <BobbyDigital80> notes, he never opened 1.d4 in a serious game: Fischer vs Hort, 1970.

Jul-11-13  DCLawyer: This game illustrates some problems with the "Guess The Move" feature.

7.e5?! is a weak move because of 8...Ng4. Both 7.Be2 and 7.Qd2 are better. But full credit is given for 7.e5, while the better 7.Qd2 is scored down.

9.Nd5? is another weak move and would have increased Black's advantage after the correct 9...f6. But full credit is given for Nd5.

Basically, this is a game where Fischer's poor play was rewarded by his opponent's awful ninth move. No reason to be proud of a good score on this one.
