|Aug-10-07|| ||Wolfgang01: The final sac of the bishop is great. Bobby overestemated the pinned knight in the corner. Otherwise his bishop was also trapped. A great march of Boris king.|
|Apr-04-09|| ||kevin86: How would anybody like to be the "two zax" in this game?:the bishop at h4 and the knight at h1-neither can move and neither seems to care.|
|May-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Spassky did Fischer-like play!|
|Aug-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: except the 1 d4|
|Sep-01-09|| ||kooley782: Good game by Spassky-he takes into account the whole board, then marches his king forward to lure black's pieces too far from the (not so) lowly pawn.|
|Sep-02-09|| ||A.G.T.HUTAHAYAN: Spassky and Fischer maybe are very happy with 5 million dollars U.S but if compare with football good players moreless to small !?|
|Feb-24-11|| ||Tigranny: This could be a good puzzle for Monday. That bishop sac was awesome in order to create a passed pawn.|
|Feb-24-11|| ||Marmot PFL: Fischer wasn't even 2600 level in this game, and got squashed. I forget his PR for the match, maybe 2680?|
|Feb-24-11|| ||M.D. Wilson: Karpov would have slapped Fischer silly had he played this match instead of Spassky.|
|Feb-24-11|| ||ughaibu: 26th of April 2004 was a Monday.|
|Feb-24-11|| ||M.D. Wilson: And the 27th was a Tuesday.|
|Mar-14-11|| ||hottyboy90: GreatGame! Fischer played very clumsily with his knighta in this one and allowed Spassky too much space which in turn made his knights inefficient and useless.|

|Jun-11-11|| ||AVRO38: Fischer simply underestimated White's resources in the endgame. |
Trapping White's knight and going into a closed endgame with 2 knights vs 2 bishops is a sound strategy on paper, but Fischer missed some brilliant tactics and wonderful endgame play by Spassky including the final bishop sacrifice.
|Jan-02-12|| ||kasparvez: Spassky's best performance in this match. Very clear and purposeful endgame, defeating Fischer in Fischer's style! Lovely.|
|Feb-20-12|| ||mworld: 16.g4 was the 'rubicon' moment.|
|Feb-20-12|| ||waustad: The bishop sac reminds me a little of a well known Chandler game Chandler vs M Steadman, 2008.|
|Jan-02-13|| ||leka: Boris Spassky was 2598 elo rating the world ranking 167th in 1992. Fischer score results 10 wins 15 draws 5 losses.Fischer rating 2657,62.But Fischer played two games a great style.One was rossolimo attack the Sicilian and the other one was kings indian Fischer with black Fischer move that game 9..knight d7!!!! was the best in the whole match|
|Feb-05-13|| ||RookFile: Who cares what his rating was. The man had been champion of the world, and was getting a chance for a rematch with Fischer. It's safe to conclude that he was sufficiently motivated to prepare, and that he was no 25xx strength player during this match.|
|Jul-14-13|| ||Ulhumbrus: 8...Bxf3 concedes the bishop pair. White's king's bishop supports a king side pawn advance and decides the game eventually by a sacrifice on g6.|
|Jul-24-13|| ||perfidious: <Ulhumbrus: 8...Bxf3 concedes the bishop pair....>|
Of course; what you have had Black play instead, the supine 8....Bc8, so he can give up two tempi for free?
<....White's king's bishop supports a king side pawn advance and decides the game eventually by a sacrifice on g6.>
If, in typically dogmatic fashion, you are attributing Fischer's loss to the concession of the bishop pair, here is some concrete explanation: in these Benoni setups, the light-squared bishop has little to do and is Black's worst minor piece.
|Jul-24-13|| ||RookFile: Right. When the bishop went to g4, clearly it's not going to stay on the board much longer. Fischer might have chosen the leave the bishop on c8, which he did when he was younger. The move 7...e6 suggests itself. Once it went to g4, the die was cast.|
Fischer actually had an amazing record with these Benoni setups, this game is one of the very few that he lost on the black side.
|Feb-13-16|| ||whiteshark: This game illustrates how White's kingside expansion can totally suffocate Black's forces.|
|Mar-27-16|| ||RookFile: Fischer might have just played 1....d5.
After some early missteps in this match, he had made the QGA a reliable drawing weapon against Spassky. Obviously he was playing for the win from the outset of this game.
|Nov-23-17|| ||Kishorebodhe: Wonderful end game by Spassky. Fischer's Knights had very little to do against Spassky's bishop pair. I liked the way Fischer's king marched right across the board to capture the rook pawn.|
