Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-09  Knight13: Why 18. Rxd8+ and allow the rook to come down on d2? Why not b3 and fight?
Jun-26-09  shalgo: Where is the fight after 18.b3 Bc6? It looks completely dull. I don't see any good plan for White. He could even end up being slightly worse if he gets stuck with doubled pawns on the kingside and nothing to compensate for them.
Jun-26-09  WhiteRook48: Fischer: "stupid prearranged games!"
Dec-09-15  cg999: What's this madness? This is the match of the two best chess player of our time.
Jun-29-16  Joker2048: They are just not in the mood!!!
Jun-29-16  RookFile: The game might have continued 28. b5 Ne5 29. a4 Nxf3+ 30. Kg2 Nh4+ 31. Kf1 Nf3 32. h3. Maybe white has a tiny edge. I'm sure Kasparov would draw it anyway with black.
