Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-04  morphyvsfischer: Ever notice how Fischer's games against the little-known Michael Green are virtually similar? Fischer proves his minor pieces superior to Black's.
Feb-21-04  Taidanii: Indeed. The position of Fischer's pawns and his minor pieces proved superior.
Aug-15-07  amntony: Bobby commits a mistake on move 18. After that, Black shouldn't have a waiting move h6; instead, Green should move more aggressively with Nxc3, and Bobby would retake with bxc3, then Green would move Bxc3 forking the two rooks on a1 and e1!
Aug-15-07  Shams: amntony, after your line white plays Bh6 (or perhaps Bg5 or Bf4 first?) and should win.
Aug-15-07  D4n: Matthew Green's Black Bishop became useless in the endgame...

  fearlessone: 18th move Nxc3 looked sharp move, Stockfish gives 18. Qf3 +.33 and liked Fischers 18th move as best, after Nxc3? 19. bxc3 Bxc3 (looks good) but 20. Bh6 reconnects the rooks Bxa1 21. Bxf8 Kxf8 23. Rxa1 and white is up +2.04

  fearlessone: Stockfish also thinks 18. ... h6 and Ra8 are the best move with an evaluation ranging from .04 to .18 (for white) going back and forth in 29 plies many times.

  fearlessone: 18. ... nxc3? 19. Bf4?? Qd5! 20 Qxd5 Nxd5 +1.78 for black Stockfish says.

  keypusher: Green missed his chance to get an opening advantage with 5....d6 (see A Reinhard vs Fischer, 1963 :-)).
