Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-05  Granite: Ouch - Fischer gives Kurajica a lesson in pins.
Feb-13-11  WiseWizard: So this is how you play Chess.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Can't be too many games where Black's KN doesn't stir for 30 moves...even fewer where Black wins.
Feb-13-11  Shams: <keypusher> You almost get the feeling he challenged himself to leave it on g8 as long as possible.
Feb-13-11  Damianx: Well put Shams i kept thinking it must be now got to be now
Feb-14-11  AnalyzeThis: You get the feeling the Fischer calculated the daylights out of this game, while Kurajica only had a vague idea of what was going on.
Jun-07-11  joelsontang: I think Lou Hays says 14.Re1 is unclear.

Anyway was there anyway White could win?

Oct-09-14  alfiepa: Arrogance on the chessboard !
Premium Chessgames Member
  kingscrusher: The desperado tactic 20.Nxf7 was desperately needed if White wanted any chance of an advantage.
