Jan-07-05  Flo: 5....Nxd5?? lost the game.
Feb-08-05  Abaduba: can someone explain why Black is lost?
Feb-08-05  Open Defence: Well a number of reasons but firstly coz he is a Knight down without compensation
Feb-08-05  offramp: White is a piece up. Black wanted to win the piece back by ...Qa5+ and ...Qxd5, but then he noticed that he couldn't take the bishop because of Nc7+ winning the queen.

9...Qe7 would have held out longer.

Feb-08-05  DWINS: <Abaduba>, After 11.Bb3 White is a piece up. At the grandmaster level, a position like this is an easy win.
Feb-08-05  RookFile: Ok. 5...Nxd5 is not a losing move.
It is considered risky and is occasionally played in master level chess today.

As Bobby was well aware 41 years ago,
6. Nxf7 is also an option after
5...Nxd5. After 6. d4, one move
for black is ...exd4, to which Fischer
probably would have replied 7. 0-0,
again passing up the possibility of the tricky 7. Nxf7.

Fischer loved the initiative with White, and I feel as though he would have chosen to rapidly develop first.

I sure wouldn't want to be black,
but a computer probably can find
defensive moves that make the result
