Jun-27-09  WhiteRook48: 11 Nxg6+! wins the queen as early as possible
It is very odd to see Fischer playing 1. d4
Mar-10-10  vsadek: Fischer was 11 years old when this game was played.

  technical draw: <Fischer was 11 years old when this game was played.>

And his opponent played like a 2 year old.

  Benzol: It is odd see Bobby opening with 1.d4 but this game is proof that he did it at least once.
Dec-05-10  BobbyDigital80: Never in a tournament game though Benzol!
Dec-28-10  kingfu: I am deleting the Zinnowitz from my opening book!

  perfidious: <Benzol> Here's the only other example of which I'm aware, though as <BobbyDigital80> notes, he never opened 1.d4 in a serious game: Fischer vs Hort, 1970.

Jul-11-13  DCLawyer: This game illustrates some problems with the "Guess The Move" feature.

7.e5?! is a weak move because of 8...Ng4. Both 7.Be2 and 7.Qd2 are better. But full credit is given for 7.e5, while the better 7.Qd2 is scored down.

9.Nd5? is another weak move and would have increased Black's advantage after the correct 9...f6. But full credit is given for Nd5.

Basically, this is a game where Fischer's poor play was rewarded by his opponent's awful ninth move. No reason to be proud of a good score on this one.

  Noflaps: This is, indeed, one of the relatively few examples I've seen where the "guess the move" feature provides fewer points for better moves. Go through the game move by move with the database and with a competent newer chess engine, and I believe this opinion will be vindicated. On the other hand, a win is a win.
Apr-11-15  ALKINAN: 11years; he was born in March 1943.
Nov-22-15  bobbyperez: Altusky losed.But he missed an opportunity to become better.Here it is:9...f6! 10.exf6 exf6 11.Bf4 threatening Nxc7 11...Nde5! stopping the threat 12.Be2 c6 13.Ne3[13.Nc3?! Qb6! 14...O-O Qxb2 ]13...Qa5+!? 14.Kf1 Nxe3+ 15.Bxe3 f5! .
Apr-20-17  MrJafari: Fischer grinded his opponent!I think it was unbelievable and shocking for him.

  fearlessone: Very nice. I thought I was playing over a different Fischer because I thought there was no way it could be him with 1.d4 First game I have ever seen and many years later! Funny it his 11 year old game.
May-05-19  Whitehat1963: With best play, black can survive for quite a while, but it is hopeless nevertheless. Here’s what Stockfish suggests:

12...Rxd8 13. Nxe5 Bxe5 14. Qd2 Re8 15. Be2 Kg7 16. O-O Bf6 17. Rad1 Ne5 18. h3 Nc6 19. Rfe1 Be6 20. Qf4 Bxb2 21. Bf3 Bc3 22. Bxc6 bxc6 23. Re4 Bf6 24. Qxc7 Re7 25. Qxc6 Rc8 26. Qb5 Bd7 27.
