  offramp: Iceland's strongest-ever Grandmaster shows how to exploit an advantage in development in a rook ending. The key move is 31.c4.

  keypusher: I was about to say: but Fischer won the game! Sometimes I am a little slow.

  Sneaky: <Iceland's strongest-ever Grandmaster> LOL, I have to admit, that threw me for a loop.

  technical draw: The difference between good players and genius can be seen by Fischer's seemingly unnecesary 32.h4. Calm, no hurry, play the best move, always.
Sep-21-13  thegoodanarchist: Also, Deep Shredder 12 ranks 31.c4 as the strongest move in the position. Olafsson fails to find the strongest reply, 31...bxc3 e.p. (Black is still lost, though).

After capturing en passant, Whit takes back with 32.bxc3, when 32...Rxc3 loses to 33.Re8.

  HeMateMe: Fred went down without a fight. All of the piece swaps made white better.
Apr-24-19  PJs Studio: Fischer treated his good friend to an epic and ruthless beating.
