Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-16-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: After 12.hxg6 black must recapture with h-pawn due to powerful double check with minor pieces on a2-g8 diagonal, thus making h-file a perfect attacking highway. Brillant sacs by Fischer.
Jan-27-10  pericles of athens: what a stunner by fischer! when he plays the white sicilian he often gets his white bishop to c4 and brings it back to b3 for safety. other times the white bishop goes to e2. he seems to generate good play, allowing the queen to work on the kingside, as he usually does in the sicilian.

  fredthebear: Black's pinned Bg7 is helpless as additional White pieces enter the fortress.
Dec-13-22  jerseybob: I dimly recalled a late-60s game Browne-Reuben I'd seen years ago in CHESS, which I remembered as a romp for Browne. I finally found it on Britbase, and it's not as one-sided as I'd thought. Browne-Reuben, Bognor Regis 1968: 1.e4,c5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.d4,cxd4 4.Nxd4,g6 5.Nc3,Bg7 6.Be3,Nf6 7.Bc4,00 8.Bb3,a6 9.f3,b5 10.Qd2,Bb7 11.000,Rc8 12.Nxc6,dxc6 13.Qf2,Nd7 14.h4,c5 15.Qd2,Bc6 16.Bd5,Nb6 17.Bh6,e6 18.h5,Qf6 19.Bg5,Qe5 20.f4,Qc7 21.Bxc6,Nc4 22.Qd7,Bxc3 23.Qxc7,Bxb2+ 24.Kb1,Rxc7 25.hxg6,fxg6 26.Bd7,Bf6 27.Bxe6+,Kh8 28.Bxf6+,Rxf6 29.Rd8+ (1-0) Why didn't black play 21..Qxc6? He either thought his q-side play was promising enough or he was lost in the long run. I lean toward the latter: white still has an edge, but how to cash in? Maybe(after 21..Qxc6) 22.e5 is best. In this game I much prefer Fischer's approach, dispensing with the Yugoslav attack trappings of Qd2 and f3 and going straight for the king with 9.h4! Wish I'd known this back in 1970, when Mark Yoffie played this "Dragondorf" line against me in a tourney in D.C. I mishandled the opening and lost a long dreary game.
