Jan-25-05  I See Dead Pieces: i just read your comment that you have a score of 21-13-32 against bobby fischer, which is quite remarkable... i was wondering what your thoughts are about this game akashic?
Jan-25-05  WarehouseMan: Once the centre was locked white focused his plan on a queenside why can't I think up a plan so obvious as that once in awhile! to the untrained eye like myself I wonder what the disadvantage of 20. Nxa4 is, it seems to snatch a pawn..hehehe.
Jul-29-05  lentil: Suttles was the tailender in this tournament: +1 =3 -7.
Aug-14-06  Maynard5: Black's problems here seem to start with 10. ... a5, after which the queenside pawns become vulnerable. After 11. ... b4, White will eventually gain an advantage with a3 (as in the game), either creating a backward pawn on the a-file, or creating threats against the pawn on b4. Black should probably have played 10. ... a6, followed by 11. ... Bb7.
Nov-11-10  shakespeare: very interesting - after 13.Ne4 I can hardly see an active plan for black - and I really love how Fischer deals with this seemingly strong knight - he just ignores it^^
Dec-05-10  misha1992: Bobby! Can chess seem so easy? Fischer should have been challenging the world champion before 1972. Why did he not play?
Jun-15-11  Wyatt Gwyon: Comical how the knight on e4 looks so strong yet does nothing.
