May-09-08  CharlesSullivan: Fischer could have won with the tricky 36.♕g4!! ♖e1+ 37.♔h2 ♖b1 <or 37...♖xa1 38.♘f5+! ♔f6 39.♕xb4 ♖a4! 40.♕c3+ ♔xf5 41.♕c7!> 38.♖xb1 ♕xb1 39.♕xd7 d5(best) 40.♕e7 and the mate threats win more material. For example: 40...♖f6 41.♕e5 ♕b4 42.♖c6 wins the rook.
Aug-03-10  shatranj7: I saw 36.Qg4! Kg8 [Black's queen cannot safely abandon the fourth rank, and is therefore forced to participate in the attack. So 36...Kg8 parries the most obvious threat, 37.Nf5+] 37.Rc8+ Nf8 38.Ne6!! [If 38...Qxg4?? then 39.Rxf8#. If 38...Rxe6 then 39.QxQ.
Apr-21-16  Howard: I believe 36.Qg4!! is pointed out in Mueller's book on Fischer.
