Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-05  lopium: Well played by Fischer. I like this oppening with black.
Jan-07-05  cade: Why not 27.Rxf7 Bxd4+ 28.Kh1 Nxb4? White might still have a chance to draw with the double rooks.
Jan-07-05  lopium: Yeah, true. It was his best moves to do. And, maybe a draw or a win for Fischer. The position, and the diversity of black's pieces wouldn't have been a lost; i think.
Jan-29-05  seelyons: if he takes rook bishop takes knight check then the bishop is taken by knight..better position and 2 pawns queenside.. definitely lost for white
Jan-29-05  seelyons: and fischer could trade down and leave bishop+knight vs rook with more pawns and better position.. white is lost. only way to play it the way he did
Apr-24-09  Goldengab: After 27. Rxf7 the easy win comes with: 27... Bxd4+ 28. Kh1 Nxb4 and then let say 29. a3 simply Nd3 win after even the exchange of the 2 minor pieces in f2.
Dec-24-09  tentsewang: This game has actually repeated almost whole moves in karl Burger vs. Fischer 1956! What a coincidence.
Nov-21-14  tranquilsimplicity: Does anybody understand why Fischer played 9...d5 in this position? I do not challenge the move, obviously, but I wanted some insight. Thank you in advance.#

For several purposes.He makes the the pawn of e5 a target for counterplay(as in the game)pressure in the center and get rid of the semiweak d6 pawn.At the same time making his d-file and Black bishop more relevant.We can not demand more from one single move!.But the tactics have to be carefully examined.In this area,pattern recognition is of great help.

It is a good question you rise.
The same thing goes for several variations in the sicillian : when Black gets d6-d5 pushed at the right time,he has equalized or is even better.

So as chessplayers we shall always be alert to counterplay in the center.

Nov-22-14  tranquilsimplicity: <Moronovich> Thanks for that. And yes indeed; as a Sicilian Defence (Dragon & Kan) player I am always on the look out to push a timely ...d5.#
