Nov-14-05  TopaLove: After 17 ... b5 Fischer brings his knight to c1. Dvoretsky teachs in his books that when you castle long, you should play Nc1 to keep your king protected against the pawnstorm.

Black did blunder in the end of this game.

Nov-15-05  RookFile: Too bad.... black played reasonably well.
Nov-15-05  sleepkid: Hank Mobley played some mean jazz...

...but my guess is this isn't him.

Nov-15-05  JohnTal: How about 33 ... Rd1+! for Black.

Obviously, 34 Qd1 ...Qc6 or
Secondly, 34 Kb2 ...Rd2!, 35 Qd2 ...Qc6 or 35 Rc8+ ...Qc8, 36 Qd2

In all lines, Bobby keeps his 1 pawn advantage, yet Mobley's Q can sustain threats against Bobby's K side pawns along with perpetual check opportunities.

I'm sure there is a Bobby win, but I suspect with my line - it would take at least 50-60 moves to prove it.

What do the computer programs recommend?

Jul-29-14  standardwisdom: <JohnTal: How about 33 ... Rd1+ for Black.> I love 33 ... Rd1+ White keeps his 1 pawn advantage and may win, but I don't see any short term win.
