  geezerbloke: Mr Sugerman doesnt seem to have grasped his chance for fame with both hands. Mind you id be interested to hear the thought process behind Bb6.
Jun-11-06  FiveMinutesToWapner: I'll bet he wanted his knight on a5. but still... ew. I'm a little surprised @ Fischer playing the Evans. I thought this opening, in post-Morphy days, was more or less retired.

If you check out you will see that Fischer, while he is listed as having essayed this Gambit thirteen times, never did so in a tournament or match game. Of the thirteen games, twelve were simuls, while the remaining one, Fischer vs Fine, 1963, was an offhand game.
