Jan-24-14  MelvinDoucet: as much as i like fischer i must say the king centralization with the queens still on the board looked silly. he could've offered a draw if he was really out of moves

Jan-24-14  RookFile: You're probably right. He played it on the following move. A common pattern I've seen in GM games is playing the right move 1 move late.

Porath did a great job hanging in there with Fischer.
