Dec-19-12  gars: Howdy there!
There must be many books which analize Fischer's games and when I say "analize" I mean using words to tell us the ideas, the plans and the mistakes both players indulge in, not that awful Informant-style symbols and ciphers, very useful when one's ELO is 2500 or more but only irritating otherwise. I welcome all suggestions. Thanks a lot.
Dec-19-12  kevin86: White's attack comes sudden and is lethal!
Dec-19-12  waustad: The pun reminds me of the bad old days when I used to use DOS/Windows regularly.

Moves like 20 26 and 31 are simple yet crushing...imho...

  HeMateMe: Great Pun, more Bobness.
Dec-19-12  RookFile: After Be2, black had a choice of a wide variety of options. He choose ....b5, which threatens ....b4 and black's knight has nowhere to go. Fischer decided that the best way to meet the threat was to move the bishop rather than the pawn to a3. If Fischer had a crystal ball and knew black was going to play ....b5, he would have preferred Bd3 - but maybe if he plays Bd3, black doesn't play ....b5.

  Domdaniel: <gars> Try to get a copy of 'How to Beat Bobby Fischer' by Edmar Mednis. It has all of Fischer's losses in tournament and match games, with good commentary by Mednis.
Dec-19-12  TheFocus: <How to Beat Bobby Fischer> by Mednis is available at eBay.

  FSR: <gars> You mean <analyze>. "Analize" presumably would mean to put something up one's butt. That said, I recommend "Bobby Fischer: His Approach to Chess" by Elie Agur. Here is IM Jeremy Silman's review:
Dec-20-12  Abdel Irada: <You mean <analyze>. "Analize" presumably would mean to put something up one's butt.>

At least when you analyze with anal eyes, you enjoy 20-20 hindsight.

Dec-20-12  gars: <Domdaniel>, <The Focus>, <FSR>, <Abdel Irada>: many thanks for the tips not only about the books but about about my poor English too. I laughed a lot!

  keypusher: Ault was holding his own for much of the game, per <Random Visitor>'s posts. But he just couldn't keep it up. I know the feeling.

I really love Fischer's 31st move here.

  perfidious: <keypusher>, definitely a droll touch: the 'bad' light-squared bishop, so often White's worst minor piece in Pirc/KID middlegames, comes good after all.
