|Jul-14-07|| ||RookFile: A great game by Robert James Fischer.|
|Jul-14-07|| ||whiteshark: It gives me the impression, that Fischer was always 2 moves ahead of Letelier, at least.|
|Apr-08-08|| ||smarterthanbobby: wow brillant|
|Apr-08-08|| ||smarterthanbobby: René Letelier was an International master... 2400 plus rating I agree
fisher was 2 moves ahead each move as well, just no rating above felt it was important.|

Well, we have no idea how a theoretical Fischer-Karpov match would've gone. They never played. Everyone says he was afraid, but if you ask me, he was just off his rocker even at that point. Still, he was an amazing player while it lasted. Quite an inspiration to me.
|Dec-11-13|| ||Castleinthesky: White's moves from 24-26 are wasted and show he has no plan. Black structures a beautiful king hunt.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||FSR: Another Fischer ending that concludes with a queenside mating net, from the 1959 edition of the same tournament: J de Souza Mendes vs Fischer, 1959|
|Dec-29-13|| ||offramp: Doubled pawns are frozen tempi.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||lost in space: What ever it means it sounds good.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||morfishine: Nice game and thanks <FSR> for the link!|
|Dec-29-13|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: White's game seems to have been remarkably plan-free.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||Akshay999: White plan was all solid until the 28.Rh8 blunder. The other big mistake was that white didnt try to bring the knight back from h4|
|Dec-29-13|| ||gars: <handdle>: you are right! Besides being "an amazing player while it lasted" and "quite an inspiration to me", and me too and everybody else, Fischer did more for popularizing Chess than any other player, dead or alive. From 1972 to 1975 there was a chess fever around the world. An by 1975 it seemed clear that he already was a bit out of order.|

Thanks for that!
|Dec-29-13|| ||waustad: Both of the Fischer games being discussed help remind one of the power of the two bishops.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||RandomVisitor: After 7. cxd4 Nc6! black has some hard to find (but not for Fischer) tactical play against the weak white a-pawn and a possible king-rook knight fork. |
Best play for white might be 8.e3:

Rybka 4.1 x64:
<[+0.07] d=20 8.e3> Nb4 9.Na3 d5 10.Kd2 Ra5 11.Nb5 e5 12.a4 Bd7 13.Nf3 Nc6 14.Be2 Bb4+ 15.Kc2 Rg8 16.g3 Kf8 17.Kb3 e4 18.Ne1
|Dec-30-13|| ||kevin86: Can white do anything about Ba3 and Bb2#?|
|Dec-30-13|| ||PJs Studio: What a gorgeous king trek by Fischer. From 21...Kd7 Fischer had this game under his control. One more game on a long list of that show just how deeply this man outclassed strong players. A beauty!!|
|Dec-30-13|| ||diceman: <kevin86: Can white do anything about Ba3 and Bb2#?>|
37. Rh8 Ba3
38. Rc8+ Kb4
39. Rc2!!! Bxc2
40. Bxc2 Rxc2
41. Ng6 Kb3
42. h4 Rc1#
he's not getting mated on b2.
(Resigns also works)
|Dec-31-13|| ||thegoodanarchist: <kevin86: Can white do anything about Ba3 and Bb2#?>|
Yes, 37.Rh8 Ba3 38.Rc8+ Bc4,
but now it looks like he must give up the exchange with
and the mate threat is replaced with a monster passed pawn for Black, with the opportunity to also slaughter White's backward pawns.
In other words, pay me now or pay me later.
|Jul-29-14|| ||Ke2: The real beauty of this game is the opening. Tremendously original from both sides.|
|Aug-03-14|| ||daugava: Crazy attack! Before Fischer started moving his king to queen side, I thought that there was no way to break through.|
|Apr-28-17|| ||plang: 3 c3 is a very odd move showing no ambition; 3 d5 and 3 Bxf6 are the main lines. White did not have to play 27 Rh8!?; he could have tried something quieter like 27 Be2 followed by Bh5. |
Very nice mating attack that White did not anticipate.
|Jun-27-19|| ||Patzer Natmas: Game featured in "New in Chess - Tactics Training - Bobby Fischer "|
Solve for black on move 30...
