  al wazir: Fischer swindled this guy. 44...Qe5 would have avoided the mate. Then if 45. Qd3, 45...Qe1+ wins; if 45. Qb1 then 45...Kxg4. White has to play 45. Rf4+ (or Rg5+) Qxf5 46. Rxf5. The resulting R&P endgame is probably a win for white, but Bobby would have had to work harder.
May-28-06  sneaky pete: He was entitled to a bit of luck after missing 41.f4+ Kg4 42.Kg2 .. when the hopeless 42... Qxf4 is the only move to postpone #.
Sep-05-07  arminsson: How about 42. Kg2?
May-10-09  Travis Bickle: Beautiful ending, no stopping Qf1#!
Dec-03-14  TheFocus: From a clock simul in Davis, California on April 16, 1964.

Fischer scored +10=0-0.

Yep. Black has nothing better than 42....Qxg3+ 43.fxg3 f5 44.Rg7+ Rxg7 45.Qxg7#.
