Nov-04-07  chicago: an amazing foresight for Fischer to see the queen trap. and not only is the queen attack brilliant, all of Fischer's pieces are defended save for the rook which is out of reach anyway. a great game!
Mar-08-09  Absentee: What a little piece of art.
Mar-08-09  outsider: very fischerish indeed
Oct-06-09  tivrfoa: Indeed a great Queen trap. xD
Oct-06-09  AnalyzeThis: Notice that Fischer didn't need his main line openings to beat this guy. He saved those for the big boys.
Jun-23-13  detritus: I wonder what Black was thinking with 19... cxb4.
Sep-02-13  Zugzwangovich: So Fischer was playing the chameleon Sicilian even back that far!? He played this way a few times in the '92 Spassky rematch.
Jun-08-15  A.T PhoneHome: The only safe square for Black Queen is g7, but then Fischer would play Rg1, pinning Black Queen to King and thus, the Queen is lost.

Brilliant way to end a tournament!

Sep-16-18  Beancounter: In my opinion Fischer played best chess of his career from 70-72.

That may be the least controversial statement ever made on CG. ;)

  fredthebear: This is a Sicilian Closed (B23-B26). Scroll down to the bottom:

"The Main line of the Closed Sicilian is 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.d3 d6, when White's main options are 6.Be3 followed by Qd2 and possibly 0-0-0, and 6.f4 followed by Nf3 and 0-0." - Wikipedia

Maybe this helps (White delays Nge2):

The King's Indian Attack places the knights on Nf3 and Nbd2.
