Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-04  Erwin: mad game i really confuse what the heck really happend
Jul-19-04  uglybird: I second that confusion, the score is got to be wrong.
Jul-19-04  notsodeepthought: The score does not look so unreasonable... just a couple of comments on the less obvious moves: 1) after 24... Re6, white cannot play 25 N:g5 since then 25 ... f3+ 26 e5 f:e2 27 e:d6 e:f1 and black is up an exchange; 2) after 34 ... Kb6 (?) 35 Nd4, 35 ... R:e5 36 R:e5 R:e5 loses the bishop to 37 Rg6+.
Jul-19-04  uglybird: But what about the knight moves 7.Nc3, 10.Nd1, 13.Nc3, 14.Nb1, 15.Nd2, these seem like moves maybe Petrosian would make but not Fischer.
Apr-02-06  blingice: Apparently they both wanted their knights in a very specific place...
Jun-19-07  piroflip: what was wrong with ...21 B x g5?
Dec-05-08  PugnaciousPawn: Bobby was known for his contributions to the Exchange Variation.
Jul-16-09  TheFocus: Opponent's name is Jose.

  kingscrusher: 21.g5 is fascinatingly the best resource to make use of it seems:

(Gavriel, 16.03.2021)

With the move g5 , one key point seems to be that the h3 pawn can be left as a shield.
