Sep-03-04  wall: Looks like it's mate after 49...Rb2+ 50.Ka1 Ra2+ 51.Qxa2 Qxc1+ 52.Qb1 Qgb2 mate. Fischer could have also played 49...Qxc1+ 50.Qxc1 Rb5+ 51.Qb2 Rfxb2+ 52.Ka1 Ra2 mate.
Feb-10-12  Robed.Bishop: 50...Rb3 might be faster.
Jun-11-13  Jambow: Looks like Fishers answer to the English is simply to play the KID.
Jun-11-13  RookFile: Marchand did the right thing by not castling kingside. He would have been mated by move 35 if he does that.

  perfidious: <RookFile>: A while later, a stronger player than Dr Marchand got into just such a fix against the great man: E Nikolic vs Fischer, 1968.
Jun-11-13  RookFile: Quite right, perfidious. That game shows exactly why Marchand didn't castle kingside.
