Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-29-04  Whitehat1963: The queen sac, 20...Qe6, (forced) may not have come as a surprise as it's the only move that really works, but I'm sure white was probably smiling after 19. Nf5, exf5 20. Rde1. And Fischer shows it all to be merely a mirage. I'm surprised no one has kibitzed about this game
Dec-29-04  Whitehat1963: What is 23. b4 about?
Aug-01-05  bomb the bishop: is 10. e5 a mistake?
Aug-01-05  Montreal1666: <bomb the bishop> 10. e5 doesn't seem like a mistake. The mistake is later on and it is simply giving up too much material for nothing!

  perfidious: <Whitehat1963> On looking at this position before White's 23rd move, I'm unsure about the objective value of the move played, but it's clear to me that White must, above all, stay active, for if Black is allowed to safeguard his king and coordinate his pieces, the tide will turn against him.

  technical draw: 20..Qe6 and white thought for sure he had beaten the teenage star. Then Fischer moves into a discovered check, surely it's all over? Not quite yet. A few more moves and the tables are turned. Fischer was sure hard to beat.
Aug-01-09  wanabe2000: White loses the Queen after 51.Qa3 Rc2+ 52.Kd1 Rc1+ 53.Kd2 R8c2+ 54.Kd3 Rc3+. Amazing game that has set here, fallow, until TD commented.
Nov-29-13  Thorncastle: The value of White's 23rd move seems rather clear: intends (next move) to chase the Bishop from c6 to be able to check with the Knight on d5 and get more material engaged in attack (actually only d7 is a possible escape for the Black's Bishop but in this way blocking a further retreat for his King, which was as it seems White's hope).
Jul-23-14  Eduardo Bermudez: Francisco J Perez is the ONE AND ONLY MASTER IN COMMON TO WHOM BOBBY FISCHER AND I, WE'VE WON !
Jul-29-15  SpiritedReposte: <Perez Dispenser>
