Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-26-04  S4NKT: why is this game english? fischer doesn't play c4 until move 13
Feb-25-04  Queen killer: transposition, but it is the KIA first
Sep-03-04  wall: 29...Rg7 loses, but can Black improve with 29.fxg4 instead? In the game 32.e7+ wins after 32...Kg8 33.Bxc6 Qxc6 34.Rd8+.
Sep-03-04  Calli: <improve with 29.fxg4 instead?>

29...fxg4 30.Rd8!+ Kxd8 31.Qd3+ Ke8 32.Qd6 etc

Aug-02-07  amntony: 21.b5 would be in accordance with the English line :-)
Aug-02-07  Aspirador: <21.b5 would be in accordance with the English line :-)>Yes, but the game should have been stopped at 5 o'clock for an Earl Grey. Cardoso later blamed the organizers for ignoring this tea time break.
Aug-15-07  amntony: It's interesting :-) Thanks a million, Aspirador!
Jul-15-11  DrMAL: After 17...g5 a very dubious move, Fischer's delay of c5 to maneuver the knight to e4 was really excellent. Now black's king is destined for early execution wherever it goes.
Jul-23-14  jerseybob: What's the purpose of 6..h3 if not to retreat the bishop to h7? 7..Bg4 looks bad to me.
Dec-01-19  crankykong: If 7...Bh7 then 8.e5
Feb-23-20  N.O.F. NAJDORF: I think Capablanca would have played 32 Rd7 immediately.
