Kibitzer's Corner
May-12-04  somethingstrong: after 27. c4?, Black's endgame technique is exemplary. I vote for changing the name of the Sicilian Najdorf to the Sicilian Fischer variation after watching him dominate these lines so often.
Jan-20-08  fischeranian: the way Fischer outplays a strong Matulovic in this complicated opening is impressive
May-13-08  Lt.Columbo: Hello kibitzers, and fellow woodpushers. Forgive my somewhat novice level but doesnt Bobby make chess look too easy. Have a goodnight gentlemen
May-13-08  Cinco: Indeed he did, <Lt.Columbo>. In this game, as in others he played, he also showed how the b2 pawn in this line wasn't always poison :)
May-14-08  Lt.Columbo: Hello Cinco Ive heard that recently that b2 isnt necessarily a poisoned pawn ;-)
May-17-08  Cinco: <:0!>
Sep-20-09  kurtrichards: The b2 pawn is really poisonous except to Fischer.
Sep-04-13  Sebastiaan: It's not poisoned if white can't figure out a way to make an advantage out of his better position.
