Nov-17-04  TheGreatNN: Fischer plays the Fischer gambit! I knew he wrote about it, but I didn't think he would actually play it. Cute game.
Dec-01-06  TaxiDriver: The Master gives his pupil a harsh lesson haha!

  beatgiant: <drukenknight: looking at 14...Ne5 here is that any bette?>

At least White could reply with 14...Ne5 15. Bxg7+ Kxg7 16. f6+ Kxf6 17. Rxf4+ Nf5 18. Qh4+ Kg6 19. Rxf5! with what looks like a crushing attack (19...Kxf5 20. Rf1+, or 19...h6 20. Raf1, etc.)

Dec-02-07  Talis: More beautiful final could be after 13...Nxf5 14.exf5 Qc6 15.fxg6 Qxc4. Then follows 16.Qh6!! Qg8 17.Bxg7+ Qxg7 18.Qxf4+ Ke8 (18...Kg8 19.Qc4+ with mate) 19.Rae1+ Kd7 20.Qg4+ Kc6 21.Qc4+ Kd7 22.Rf7+ and white wins.
Dec-02-07  D4n: What is the full line of the Polish Opening: Tartakower Gambit?
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: This was the Fischer Gambit? I thought it was the Tartakower Gambit. Or did CG list the opening wrong because this is the first time I've ever seen it.
Sep-23-09  Travis Bickle: Bobby plays The Opening Of The Day! ; P
Nov-29-14  TheFocus: From a simul in Cleveland, Ohio on March 18, 1964.

Fischer scored +51=0-1.

  HeMateMe: The daily puns are getting better. There may yet be hope for this site.
Oct-29-18  mravikiran: "To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone" last lines from Star Trek opening narration before the title theme...

"These are the voyagers of the star ship enterprise.......To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone before....."

Oct-29-18  SeanAzarin: There have been plenty of awesome puns on this site. Here's one of my favorites.

  OrangeTulip: Apart from the pun the game is just dust in the wind. Mr. Gloger has one game in the database, so any analysis is a waste of time

  piltdown man: Why is analysis a waste of time if the guy has only one game? How does that make a difference?

  perfidious: There are some strong players who have few games here at CG, a result in large part of their careers being in the era before databases captured seemingly every game.

Girome Bono was such a player; had Fischer faced him in any game--with a grand total of two games here to Girome's credit--he would have gotten a run for his money.

Oct-29-18  catlover: I love the pun!

  perfidious: <wtpy>, vastly amusing.

With regard to a certain poster given to much innuendo, many accusations made up of whole cloth and spraying gallons of oil of vitriol, more than once I have posted that line from <Star Trek> at Rogoff. Always got under his skin too. As they say: truth hurts, don't it?

  keypusher: Couple of practice pointers from SF: after 11.Nf5, I thought ...Kf8 was forced, but Black has 11....d5!. After 12.Bb3 (11.Nxg7+ Kg7 -+) 0-0 13.Nxe7+ Qxe7 14.Qxd5+ Kh8 he has managed to castle and is doing OK.

Fischer could have played 12.Bxf6 immediately. After 12.0-0?! Black could have tried ...Qd7, since 13.Bxf6 gxf6 14.Qh6+ Ke8 15.Ng7+ Kd8 16.Ne6+ Qxe6 nets three minor pieces for the queen. But if Fischer doesn't sacrifice Black is going to have a hell of a time getting developed.

Well, the video below, is a <perfect summary> of the state of affairs on virtually ALL online discussion boards:

Oct-29-18  savagerules: Rare instance of Fischer not playing 1 e4. He started mixing it up a little bit more after 1970 with a few 1 c4 and 1 b3.
