Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-05  Dres1: Bxg3 Kxh5, g4, and f3
Dec-20-10  Xeroxx: indeed.
Aug-06-13  estrick: This game, up to move 22, is given as a note to Game #6 in Fischer's "My 60 Memorable Games."

Fischer gives Keres credit for pointing out that 23. Nf3! would have allowed White to hold on to the extra pawn, as Black cannot capture the pawn on d5 with his queen without losing either the knight on f6 or the bishop on d7 after 24. Bc3!; and can't use the knight to capture on d5 without getting skewered on the h1-a8 diagonal.

Aug-06-13  RandomVisitor: <estrick>Ok, 23.Nf3 Rc8 and now black threatens Nxd5. Play might continue 23.Nf3 Rc8 24.Qd4 Nxd5 25.Rd1 Be6 26.Ng5 Bg7 27.Qh4 h6 28.Nxe6 Qxe6 29.Qe4 =.
Aug-08-13  estrick: It seems your computer analysis may be stronger than Keres or Fischer's.
