Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-03  InspiredByMorphy: Black could have at least played 7. Be6
Dec-23-03  TyroPower: Did Black resign because he just didn't see 10... d5?
Dec-23-03  InspiredByMorphy: Good question! After 10.d5 11.exd Na5
Fischer would have still prevailed from blacks poor 6.d6? though.
Feb-01-04  TrueFiendish: I think 6...d6 is okay, but 7...Na5 should have been tried.
Jun-09-04  zb2cr: If 10 ... d5, then simply 11 Qxd5, Qxd5 (forced); 12 exd5, Na4; 13 dxe5 gives the following situation:

a. White is 2 Pawns ahead.
b. White has the better position
in the center.
c. White's development is better.
d. Black has lost the right to castle.
e. Black's Kingside Pawns are broken.
f. Fischer at the height of his powers
is on the other side of the board.
I think resignation is definitely in order.

Oct-15-04  Apocalypse79: Of course, black missed one chance..(e.g 7.Be6 or Na5) but anyway, fisher will get a better position...
