Aug-28-04  Whitehat1963: Funny that Fischer never played it.
Feb-16-05  Dudley: He did play it several times but I am not sure how it got named after him considering it was played much earlier in chess history.
Feb-16-05  Dudley: 4...b6 is the Fischer variation, not 5.Ne2

  Joshka: Well if he played it (4...b6) where is the game?...and when?

Fischer mostly played it under E45. Opening systems tend to be confusing since E45 is a subset of the opening on this page.

  refutor: is 5.Ne2 the strongest line v. the Fischer variation? I've been having some trouble against it recently...can anyone recommend a good setup for White? I haven't tried it, but i imagine Ne2, f3, e4, etc.
