Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-05  lopium: I think black were lost, but better was 29...hxg. Isn't it?
Apr-09-05  aw1988: hxg Bxc8
Apr-09-05  lopium: But anyway, black could be less damaged by 31...Rxh7. Then white force the exchange of his bishop for the knight... but still lost, 2 pawns less.
Sep-08-05  RookFile: Sharp tactics by the world's strongest ever blitz player, who goes 21.5 out of 22 in this tournament!

  thegoodanarchist: Fischer's play was so logical and aesthetically pleasing that you look at his games and they make total sense, but you yourself can never seem to imitate them.
Oct-01-10  Damianx: Well said thegoodanarchist thats part of the genius that was Fisher
Oct-01-10  Damianx: i have Kasperov being interviewed & they asked him what he thought of the so called Super Gm,s 2700/2800 rating he said their all good players but there isn,t a Fisher in the lot

  perfidious: <Damianx> I'm doing this strictly from memory, but after Buenos Aires 1971, Fischer was 2785, then there was a collection of players in the 2640-2675 range: Spassky, Larsen, Petrosian, Korchnoi, Karpov to name the ones I remember. In those days, if you were 2600+, you were considered a top-class GM. Even in the late 1970s, Karpov was just above 2700 and Korchnoi slightly below. The ratings have inflated a bit. That's how much stronger Fischer was than anyone when he called it a day.

Oct-02-10  jmactas: I once took chess lessons with Arthur Feuerstein. He obliterated me. I knew when he forced my knight to h1, it was over. It was quite humorous.
Apr-02-11  Lobster: This is called blitz, but I believe the tournament was played at 10 seconds a move or as 5-minute games. I'll try to check.

  TheFocus: <Lobster> The Manhattan tournament was 5-minute.
Apr-12-11  Artemi: 1971 is Bobby's "monster" year....he played like a beast during that year....I really wonder if anyone can beat him in a match at that period ( any World Champion at different era )!!!! he's really the greatest ...maybe we can never see the likes of him...just look how he play those blitz games!!!!
Apr-12-11  M.D. Wilson: Pointless question. You can't compare players who never played against each other, let alone players from different eras.

His blitz games from the period are extremely impressive. Who has a better collection?
