Dec-19-09  tibone: isnīt there a game in "my 60 memorable games" where Fischer castled with black in a similar strucure but amazingly even won in the end?
Apr-10-14  Doniez: Awful! Castling leaving your King without a pawn! And blocking the castled rook. I couldn't have done worst than Black. A good lesson on how NOT to castle
