  technical draw: Amazing, Just one comment on a Fischer thriller. Again this is a game that the opponent think he's winning but can't quite get there. Fischer fear at 16!

  Richard Taylor: I don't see it as "thriller". Denker played more enterprisingly in the opening - if his h3, g4 was a bit "wild" And if he had played 19 g5 he seemed to have an advantage.

Fischer had to defend and his play involved fairly routine (and mostly quite obvious) moves to slowly grind down Denker who played well.

  thegoodanarchist: a merry ol' king hunt at the end, though.
Nov-01-11  Old King Cole: Denker played to win but advanced his pawns a bit too improvidently, perhaps.
