Aug-30-04  wall: 35...Nc5 is wrong. Perhaps 35...Nd8 holds. After 35.Nc5? Rxb4! 36. Rxb4? fails to Bxc5+. I think this game was from the Marshall Chess Club vs Manhattan Chess Club in the NY Metropolitan League. Fischer played board 7 for the Manhattan Chess Club.
Jul-09-07  RandomVisitor: Eliot Hearst should have played 25.Nce4 and the game would then have been equal:

Analysis by Rybka 2.3.2a mp:

1. = (0.00): 25...Bc6 26.Qf3 Nf6 27.Be3 Bxe4 28.dxe4 Rc4 29.Bc5 Rb8 30.Rfa1 Qd2 31.h3 Qf4 32.Qxf4

2. = (0.00): 25...Rc7 26.Qf3 Nf6 27.Be3 Bxe4 28.dxe4 Rc4 29.Bc5 Rb8 30.Rfa1 Qd2 31.h3 Qf4 32.Qxf4

Sep-08-09  desiobu: This is only a minor thing among the bigger concepts at play here, but I particularly liked black's 43...Re3+. I might naturally play Rf3 in such a position but Re3+ then Rf3+ get's to the same position with tempo.

Maybe so.. But Fischer would've won anyway.

You snuggle up to Rybka.. and I'll snuggle up to chess history.

Apr-27-11  TheFocus: Nice coincidence.

I made this <Fischer's Game of the Day> at My Forum with a big thank you to NM Eliot Hearst.

NM Hearst says that 25. Ned4 would have given him attacking chances on both wings.

Dec-20-13  AlbertodaCruz: merry christmas and that our dreams come true in 2014
Dec-22-16  Helios727: Why not play 25. Nxb5 ?
Feb-22-18  TheFocus: Hard to believe that it was in 2011 that Eliot Hearst annotated this game and his win against Fischer for me.
