Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-06  M.D. Wilson: Excellent technical win.
Jan-18-09  M.D. Wilson: Yes, excellent indeed.

  technical draw: Not too many comments on a Fischer "will to win " game. Many other players would just have taken the half point. Indeed it even looks better for white at times. Great games by the 16 year old Fischer playing black in 1959.
Jan-29-12  screwdriver: Nice win, but I would've played on if I were white, hoping to sack the knight for two pawns or just getting a drawn position in a king pawn ending.

  AylerKupp: I don't think that this game is a matter of Black winning as it is of White losing after pressing too hard. It may have been a case of White (aged 67 and 7 times the Brazilian chess champion, most recently in 1958) underestimating Black (aged 16).
Mar-03-12  screwdriver: I just love watching the Bobby Fischer games. He always puts on an interesting display of moves.
Oct-05-16  zydeco: 68....e4! is the key idea.

I could imagine David Bronstein playing this middlegame.
