Sep-16-05  RookFile: Tell you what, black has a good position in the final position. If Fischer was black, I think he would played on.
Jul-14-09  WhiteRook48: If Fischer was white, which he was, he would've played on
Oct-11-13  tipareth: I disagree, RookFile. Fischer's about to eat up those pawns on the queen side.
Dec-08-14  Strelets: 27...Rd8 28.Nxc4 Rd4 29.Nxb6 Rxf4 30.Nxa8 Rxa8 31.Rg2 Nxa4 32.Nxa4 Rxa4 looks like a drawn double rook endgame to me. Still, an extremely rare example of Fischer taking a draw with White before the 30th move.
