Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-06-06  ToTheDeath: Beautiful play by Fischer. Wins a pawn with 17. Bxc4! followed by Re3, gets a passed a pawn, trades into a strong knight vs bad bishop endgame, activates his king and that's that.
Nov-06-17  newzild: Botvinnik: "His play is so simple - like a child".

But what a child!

  kingscrusher: I think 32...f5 made things much worse for black than they needed to be. Just preparation with 32...g6 seems better and black should be able to draw as there is enough pressure and the bishop seems quite good. it can defend d6 via c5.

  kingscrusher: I would say also 23... Qa4 very good move - seems to get the dark-squared bishop without the counterpart from black and should have equalised. I think Fischer must have overestimated his position with the forcing 16.Bc4. It seems to come at too high a price for potential counterplay objectively speaking.
