Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-04  delterp: An excellent example of white 'castling into' black's attack. White's king is safer in the center. While 31) Rd1? is the obvious loser, there was nothing constructive for white to do. It is impressive to see Fischer work on both sides of the board in harmony. First opening up the h file, then threatening to trap the silly a6 bishop, finally pinning the poor e3 knight.

  keypusher: Quite an interesting encounter...wonder how often Black has castled queenside in the King's Indian Defense?

  Gypsy: < keypusher: ...wonder how often Black has castled queenside in the King's Indian Defense? > Not often. Here is from the man himself:

Shamkovich vs Bronstein, 1971 game is unique, for the fact that in a King's Indian Defense Black castled on the queenside! I was also pleased with the final combination. <Bronstein on King's Indian>

Sep-12-08  joelsontang: where can i get notes by fischer apart from his 60 memorable games???

  sergeidave: Is 3...h6 playable only because this is a blitz game? Would this be a good move on a normal time controls game? I mean, doesn't black end with doubled pawns on f and a potentially trapped bishop on g7 after 4.Bxf6? I'm sorry if questions like these sound silly, I'm just very interested in understanding a bit all these subtleties going on at games by geniuses of this caliber.
Nov-03-09  birthtimes: Sergeidave, yes, after 4. Bxf6 Black does have doubled f-pawns, but this is more than compensated for by Black having the bishop-pair (2 bishops vs. bishop and knight), and after he soon plays ...d6, he can then play ...f5, which both frees the bishop on g7 and puts pressure on the e4 square or pawn...
Apr-07-12  RonPaul677: Is there a clear checkmate coming when White resigns? Or does White resign only because he is down a Rook?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <RonPaul677> The rook alone is enough reason.

Hort played badly. Two bad blunders for a GM. It was a blitz game, though.

  harrylime: Blitz games give a superb and lucid insight into chess.. and how great players think..

And blitz game or not, it was competitive.

Fischer won that tournament by a country mile lol lol

Apr-07-12  Octal: This game is rather silly. If Fischer wasn't black no one would have commented on it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Well, it was blitz chess.
Premium Chessgames Member
  harrylime: And Fischer was black..
Apr-07-12  Octal: I just realized I used the subjunctive wrong! "If Fischer *weren't* black"
Apr-07-12  King Death: < Octal: I just realized I used the subjunctive wrong! "If Fischer *weren't* black" >

The grammar police is coming for you!

Apr-08-12  Octal: I'm lucky a single unity of individuals is singular: it makes it feel less daunting.
