Jul-17-07  RandomVisitor: 10.Bxf7+ is good for White.
Apr-15-09  AnalyzeThis: Here black's opponent, a <US Open winner> is one of Fischer's opponents in a <simul>.

Pretty remarkable.

Mar-06-13  HAPERSAUD: where is the analysis to prove 10.Bxf7?
Mar-06-13  Novirasputin: It's a simul though is it mate in 3 5 min calc good? or 40 min sitting at a single board calculating 5 won endgame variations good?

Simuls aren't always the place for best play. It's about efficient play which is what makes games like "Tal vs Sviridov" so inspiring

Dec-03-14  TheFocus: From a simul in Cicero, Illinois on May 20, 1964.

Fischer scored +44=5-1.

Apr-26-15  rodantero: 10.Bxf7 was played in a Kaufmann-Marco game in 1915...

  fredthebear: This simultaneous game is an extension of a casual game that Fischer played against Fine a year before. In the previous miniature, Black castled into trouble. Fischer vs Fine, 1963

  HeMateMe: why does black play 9...R-f8 instead of castling?
Nov-12-17  sneaky pete: <HeMateMe> After 9... O-O 10.Bxf7+ Rxf7 11.Qc4 .. black is lost. See Fischer vs Fine, 1963
