|Mar-18-15|| ||bengalcat47: This is a clever pun. However, since Fischer's opponent is of Spanish descent I'm pretty sure the name "Bachiller" is not pronounced like "bachelor." In the Spanish language the surname "Trujillo" is pronounced as "true-he-o."|
|Mar-18-15|| ||FSR: Shouldn't it be Bachiller <Partie>?|
|Mar-18-15|| ||piltdown man: He was the greatest.
Too bad he turned into such a fruitcake.
|Mar-18-15|| ||Ratt Boy: 1970. This is when Fischer, who'd been amazing in 1956 and awesome since 1960, was at his peak. Even in a simul, getting blown out by a guy who was fixin' to blank Taimanov and Larsen was nothing to be ashamed of.|
I completely agree, <piltdown man>. He was the second "Pride and Sorrow of Chess".
|Mar-18-15|| ||offramp: <piltdown man: He was the greatest.
Too bad he turned into such a fruitcake.>
I don't know much about him. Except that he was born in 1944 in Spain.
|Mar-18-15|| ||perfidious: <offramp> Fischer was actually born one year earlier than has been believed, to a woman who was widowed by events at Pearl Harbour.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||offramp: Who was <piltdown man> talking about?|
|Mar-18-15|| ||RookFile: A clever game by Fischer, at only seconds per move!|
|Mar-18-15|| ||TheaN: <offramp: <piltdown man: He was the greatest. Too bad he turned into such a fruitcake.>|
I don't know much about him. Except that he was born in 1944 in Spain.>
That actually made me laugh out loud.
|Mar-18-15|| ||Penguincw: Great finish with 26.Qxg7+ Kxg7 27.Rg4+ Kf8 28.Rg8+ Ke7 29.Re8# 1-0.|

I believe this type of mate is called "Hook mate".
|Mar-18-15|| ||Strelets: <Penguincw> Right you are. I used to call any checkmate with rook and knight an Arabian mate, but those need to be in a corner and only a rook and knight can participate.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||perfidious: <offramp> No idea, but fruitcake is good, actually, every now and again.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||AylerKupp: I suppose that Fischer didn't get a rose from this Bachiller after the game.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||kevin86: Arabian Mate on the way...|
|Mar-18-15|| ||lost in space: Nice mate. Elegant.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||Gilmoy: <Llawdogg: Imagine if every book you read was missing the last chapter just because the intelligent reader should be able to figure out what happened.>|
"Obvious as all hell!" -- I.A.
|Mar-18-15|| ||WDenayer: Black plays pretty well until 15. ... Qa7. The whole idea is wrong. Why not Be7 and castling and then we will see?|
|Mar-18-15|| ||Moszkowski012273: Cute but 19.Nb5...is stronger.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||JohnBoy: My favorite move here is 24.Qg4, threatening to expose the black rook w a back rank mate. It looked for a moment there that black was making a game of it. Hell of a thing, that the c8 rook is on exactly the wrong square.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||JohnBoy: <Gilmoy> - I like the mate and thought it rather evident, but your quote reminds me of Wigner's comment to Oppenheimer. Rob't O routinely browbeat his opponents, almost always his intellectual inferiors, with something like "oh, come on... that's obvious". Until Wigner, every bit his equal, replied "It may be obvious, Robert. But not to me."|
|Mar-18-15|| ||NimzoCharlie: If 25...Kf8, 26. Bh6, and if 26...gh, the queen delivers the hook mate.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||Moszkowski012273: If 25...Kf8 26.Qd7...|
|Mar-19-15|| ||Ladyanavt: I like the walls of pieces on the kingside. Gives the impression of an impenetrable fortress.|
|Mar-19-15|| ||alfiepa: my tribute to late Bobby Fischer .
a trip in Iceland trancing on his footstep
|Mar-19-15|| ||morfishine: Great finish by Fischer!
However, the play-on-word referencing the Black players name fails.
It would've barely crawled into the lower regions of viability if only
Black won. I guess the pun-submitter and/or voters overlooked this
fairly obvious aspect of the game. Its safe to say that afterwards Bachiller had little interest in attending a party, though he may have taken to drinking
