Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-22-05  Knight13: Good game. This doesn't look like an blitz game at all! And great notes by Fischer.
Sep-12-08  joelsontang: where can i get notes by fischer apart from his 60 memorable games???
Oct-10-08  ToTheDeath: <Good game. This doesn't look like an blitz game at all!>

This is sarcasm right?

Terrible game by both players, sloppy even for blitz.

Oct-10-08  RandomVisitor: 15.Na4 Qxd4+ 16.Qxd4 Nf3+ 17.Rxf3 Bxd4+ 18.Be3 and white has better development.
Oct-11-08  AnalyzeThis: In the final position, Reshevsky might have played on. The game will become King and rook vs. King and Knight, a theorectical draw, but there are chances for the defending side to go wrong.
Feb-13-09  Garech: It's surprising that Fischer accepted the draw, he had a reputation for playing to the kings. Good game all the same, some sharp positions despite the inevitable errors that come with blitz games.

  sleepyirv: <Garech> Why would Fischer play on when he had no winning chances?
Feb-13-09  Marmot PFL: I would also play this out in blitz. Not that I would expect Fischer to lose, but if it was reversed he would definitely try to win.
Aug-16-09  WhiteRook48: "Blitz kills ideas" Bobby Fischer
Aug-16-09  AnalyzeThis: I think what you guys are trying to say is that Reshevsky should have played on.
Oct-27-09  Garech: <sleepyirv: Garech Why would Fischer play on when he had no winning chances?>

Lol yes you have a point there! Maybe to try and sneak a queen onto the board after telling Reshevsky there was a three-headed monkety behind him.

Jun-28-13  leka: Sam Reshevsky was rated 2663 in 1970 at age 56 years old.But Sam Reshevsky was the world number one in 1953 rating 2785
Aug-04-13  Zugzwangovich: Interesting that according to Fischer's own notes Sammy had him dead to rights in both of the blitz games they played on this day.
Oct-03-15  Helios727: Did they have a 3rd person writing down the blitz moves or did the players create the move list from memory? <leka>, in 1953 they did not have world Elo ratings. Only the USCF did. So maybe Sammy could claim to be the highest rated American player in 1953 (assuming your numbers are correct), but that claim would not extend to the world.
