Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-05  popski: Another nice one from Mr. Fischer!
Apr-11-07  Sam Chapin: Ray Keene cites this game as refuting 8...Nd5 in the Austrian attack.
Apr-11-07  RookFile: I don't have my chessboard in front of me, is this the one where Fischer says you play ...Nh5 instead, and Keene took it to heart?
Apr-11-07  shalgo: Keene says the following in his notes to 8...Nh5 in Gligoric vs Keene, 1971:

"The old main-line position of the Austrian Attack. Now 8...Nd5 was refuted in Fischer - Perez, Havana 1965, while 8...Ng4 never recovered from the game Gligoric - Quinteros, Vinkovci 1970, which continued 9 Be4 f6 10 h3 Nh6 11 Bd5+ Kh8 12 O-O Nf5 13 Re1! Nfxd4 14 Nxd4 Nxd4 15 Qxd4 and whichever way Black chooses to regain the piece he remains with a markedly inferior position. In this line the bold piece sacrifice 10...fxe5! 11 hxg4 exd4 certainly deserves attention. The text move 8...Nh5! was mentioned, but not analysed, by Fischer in his My 60 Memorable Games. To the best of my knowledge the move was first employed in an international tournament in the game Safvat - Keene, Siegen Olympiad 1970."

  technical draw: Perez had a real good game against Fischer 5 years before, F J Perez vs Fischer, 1960 and it looked like Perez was going to upset Fischer. No chance in this game, however.
