Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-31-04  Saruman: Although 39.-Rxh3? wasnt the best move white seems better anyway.
Sep-08-05  RookFile: This is a quality game, in general, even though this is blitz.
May-27-09  Travis Bickle: 1971 this is when Fischer was razor sharp, even if it is just a blitz game.
May-27-09  AnalyzeThis: I'm sure that black does not survive long with 40....Bf4, but I would have tried it.
Jun-11-12  screwdriver: Dropping a piece by capturing on h3 isn't the best way to play Bobby Fischer.
Sep-26-22  jerseybob: <AnalyzeThis: I'm sure that black does not survive long with 40....Bf4, but I would have tried it.> You mean 39..Bf4, right? After that move I don't see a forced win, though Bobby was probably winning on time, as usual. Up till his 39th, Kramer puts up a surprisingly stout defense.
