drukenknight: Fischer Meets the Caro Kann. Hey gang. I thought it would be fun to study Fischer and how he fared against the CaroKann, a not very well deeply analyzed system that proves difficult even against the greatest. I would guess that since Fischer relied on memory a great deal he might have some problems facing stuff he had never seen.
This one is from early in his career. Addison always was difficult in those days. This variation involves swapping the N on f6 and getting doubled f pawns. sounds like bad idea, but it will come up later in his career too.
Addison does not really try do anything with the doubled pawn, black should try to get something for it before the end game comes.
In the beginning it looks like 8...BxQ is better since that would still allow castling.
Look at blacks game on his 10th move, he had doubled pawn why not try to undouble w/ 10...Be6 or hey why not mess up whites K side pawns w/ 10...Be4. I prefer Be4 it looks tricky. but either way centraliz ing the B is a recurring theme.
even later look at 11...Be4 12 Ke2 g5 13 Rg2 Bxf3 14 Kxf3 something like that. See he never tries to do anything w/ initial imperfection in the game, he never tries to either, undoubled the pawns, use them on attack or attempt to do the same thing to white.
even with all that. Black is still okay fischer 000 so it will be some sort of pawn storm. Why not get pressure down the c file in order to attack whites K? black puts the R on the d file where it matches up nicely with whites R. WHy not try to get some attack out of this because the end game favors white at least so far he has one more connected pawn.
14 Bc2 see how the B line up? This will be a recurring theme. Why not 14...Be6 15 BxRP BxP? Look at it this way, they swap pawns but who does this favor? sinec black has an extra doubled pawn on the K side his 3 pawns can still hold off their opposite number. But if black gains the c pawn he has an attack down the c file.
Attack on the c file. ANother theme.
