Jan-21-05  dac1990: A good game showing Fischer's style quite nicely.
Jul-14-05  Swindler: Soltis gives 6.e4 Nxc3 7.bxc3 g6 as more natural, and also gives 7...e5 8.dxe5 Qh4+ as more sharp. Though I fail to see what Black got after 9.g3 Qe7 10.Bf4. Sure, the White kingside is weak but I fail to see anything concrete. Any ideas?

  keypusher: Hmm, I would expect 7...e5 8 de Qxd1+ 9 Kxd1 Nd7 10 Bf4 0-0-0.
Mar-16-06  RookFile: I think 4. d5 is in order, and probably what Fischer was expecting.
Jun-14-09  Ulhumbrus: 9 Qb3 loses a tempo to defend the d4 pawn, and it allows Black to play the move ...Nc6 ( a move which attacks the d4 pawn) with tempo, as the N threatens then the fork ...Na5. An alternative is 9 Ne2 at once eg 9...Bg7 10 Qd2 Nc6 11 Ne2 0-0-0 12 0-0-0 or 12 Rd1.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: With 4.d5, White achieves the same position with colors reversed and an extra tempo that Fischer had vs. Petrosian in the 1971 match! I wonder if the post-mortem analysis of this game gave him an idea for future use against Petrosian...
Jun-07-11  joelsontang: 13...Qc6 (simplifying to a simpler ending - Lou Hays). A younger Fischer would definitely have played 13...Nxc4 gaining the 2 bishops without hesitation
Jan-02-13  Zugzwangovich: Would the king-and-pawn ending still be winning for Black if the final sequence had been 35...Bg7 26.Rd3 and then the double exchange of pieces? I realize that this way the White king ends up on d4 instead of c3 the way RJF played it, but I'm not a good enough endgame player to know whether the extra tempo makes a difference in this case.

I believe that Nimzovich would have known about this possibility. That's why it was so surprising what Petrosian did in allowing that.

May-20-14  jerseybob: Joelsontang:<A younger Fischer would definitely have played 13..Nc4...>. What's your basis for saying that?
Nov-06-17  newzild: <jerseybob> Fischer was well-known for chasing the bishop pair in his early days. He called exchanging knight for bishop "winning the minor exchange". The ending of bishop versus knight with pawns on the board is sometimes called the Fischer Endgame. In his later years his view became more balanced, most famously in the game Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 with 22. Nxd7+.
