  OhioChessFan: As bad as this game is, 6....h5 is the kind of move that used to beat computers to a pulp.
Jun-12-05  DP12: its also a fairly normal move in this specific position. Black just messed up somewhere along the road. e:d4 seems like the decisive mistake moie prudent was f6. Bd7 seems funny compared to Be6 but maybe its cool.

  whiteshark: Pun: Bad to the Bone
Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: black was ripped from his bones
Oct-25-13  jerseybob: Analyzing his 1966 game vs.Gligorich in My 60 Games, Fischer recommends 8.Nbd2! eventually reaching a position he calls "slightly better". To be fair, that's pre-computer analysis. J-Fed's 8.Be3 seems stronger to me and pinpoints black's problem: after h5 it's not safe to castle short so 000 is coming up. But the bishop on e3 is a dagger aimed right at a7. Bone might've been able to improve with 14..f6, but it still looks very bad for black.
