Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-15-02  knight: Fischer exchanges two rooks for a queen and a pawn,picks up another pawn and then trades his queen back for two rooks winning the resulting endgame easily.Bisguier probably could have drawn but tried too hard to win,witness his fortyfourth move.
Aug-19-05  Helios727: Everyone tried too hard to beat Bobby. They should have realized that a draw a against Bobby is better than a loss.
Aug-19-05  RookFile: I guess 44. Re2 is better, to deal
with black's threat of ...Be3. Maybe
white can hold, although black is better and white's position after 44. Re2 becomes passive.
Feb-16-08  Helios727: What happens after 13. d5 ?
Feb-19-08  Jesspatrick: 13.d5 is answered with 13...♘ed4! 14.♕e4 ♘xf3+ 15.♗xf3 ♘xe5 winning a pawn
Jul-28-09  LIFE Master AJ: Another amazing Fischer game.

I went over this game like 36 years ago, but this was a nice second look.

Fischer plays model chess, I would have thought that the two (white) Rooks should triumph over Fischer's Queen.

Mar-06-12  screwdriver: I never met Bobby Fischer but I did meet Arthur Bisguir once in the early 1990s when he was giving a simultaneous exhibition. I was the only one that got a win from Arthur. I guess I had a little bit of that "model chess" that Fischer had.
Aug-17-14  zydeco: 20.....g5! is such a strange-looking move: it puts a pawn en prise, weakens the kingside, blocks in the dark-squared bishop, etc -- but it keeps white from stabilizing his position with 21.f4, and creates all sorts of possibilities on the kingside.
Aug-17-15  karthick2229: why white played 24.Qe2 ? anyone please?
Apr-12-17  karik: Why he played it I can't say
He just liked it better that way.
