Oct-05-06  lopium: 32.Rc8 was probably a blunder. What about 13.a6 Nxd6, 14.Qxd6, Nf5 ?? I donĀ“t see why not 13.a6.
Mar-21-08  Coleman: Isolated F5 pawn keep his Queen stationary for too long. He really needed to exchange those rooks. But I definately think he missed the sac.

  keypusher: <Paint my Dragon>. Thanks for that link! This seems to have been the only time Fischer played 3.Bb5+ in a serious game.

Not literally true, but you know what I mean.

  kbob: paraphrasing from Paint My Dragon source: It is interesting to note that after the game Soviet grandmasters (that is, Bronshtein and Spassky) proposed for Black 8...f5. Fischer responded disapprovingly to this move, but nonetheless during analyis he did not manage to obtain an advantage. It continued thus:
9. ef5 Qf5
10. d4 cd4
11. cd4 Nf6
12. Nc3 Nd5. Black has good play.
