drukenknight: Fischer/carokann. Here is the game from the Zurich tournament in '59 that the Russians studied in order to meet Bobby at the candidates matches four months later.
Supposedly the Russians had found some mess up in his memorized opening lines. The odd thing is that in this game he plays 7 a3 in order to avoid the pin on the N. When he played the Russians four months later he didnt play that move; so how did they know? I guess they had prepared a line in order to improve on this game. and I guess Fischer played 7 g3 in order to steer out of that, but it backfired.
NOte the pin on f2. That is recurring theme. Bobby should probably break that pin asap the longer it goes the more trouble because black is developing pieces.
Also whites Qn does not have much room to go; and black centralizes the B as a result. In the Adddison game the KN was blocked but he did not threaten to exchange it; the difference between masters and experts, I guess.
13...Qd6 Larsen is not afraid to exchange Q, he is playing strongly. bobby should exchange in order to break that pin. People afraid to swap Qs. Here Larsen finds a way to work his Q to the q side.
21 Bc3 looks like it might be better, since it will be harder for black to defend the e pawn. Also this sets up the mate on g7.
26 Bc3, 5 moves late?
28 Kh2 now he breaks the pin,but no longer exists. He should try to set up f4 is all I can see because the end game does not favor white.
why doesnt he try 34 Bg6 and push the d pawn? it is getting hit by Ns where it is.
all that jockeying for position just before the time control and then Larsen decides he really doesnt need a passed pawn on the q side.
overall a pretty good game, but there is room for improvements
