Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-05  RookFile: This is a really sharp game. Wow,
there is a lot going on here. I thought Mednis was doing well, but Bobby had a terrific answer for the very logical looking 29. Qxd6.
Oct-08-06  MyriadChoices: I agree. It seems like Mednis thought Fischer blundered a pawn, but it turns out it was he who was weak.
Oct-08-06  Maatalkko: 28...Rf8! was quite a trap for a blitz game. I call it a trap because I don't see how it helps Black unless Fischer saw the trick and knew Mednis would fall for it.
Oct-08-06  Larsker: Those two horses sure look mighty after Black's move.
Apr-14-09  music: I can't believe this was all thought out in a blitz game.
Jun-22-15  sportember: But 31.♖dd1 would be a bit better for white, wouldn't it?

  tpstar: 31. Rdd1 Nf2+ still wins the exchange while the game continuation trades off one pair of Rooks as well. Maybe 32. Kg1 (32. Rxf2 Rxf2 33. Kg1 Rcf8) Nxd1 33. Rxd1 Kf6 and Black would need some technique to convert.
