Aug-24-07  notyetagm: Beautiful classical play by Fischer in this game.

First Fischer plays against the <HOLE> on d6 (11 ♗c1-a3, 12 ♘d2-c4) and then, after the weakening 12 ... c6-c5?!, Fischer plays against the newly-created <HOLE> on d5 (15 ♘c4-e3, 17 ♘d2-b1!, 18 ♘b1-c3).

More incredibly instructive logical play by Fischer.

Nov-15-10  WiseWizard: The best.
Nov-22-11  sicilianhugefun: Domination by Fischer, Rook at the 7th rank, 2 connected centre passed pawns, active knight and Queen on a deadly diagonal.. Quite a pictursque position at the end.
Nov-29-14  TheFocus: From a simul in Detroit, Michigan on February 9, 1964.

Fischer scored +47=2-2.
