Apr-21-04  patzer2: <Karlzen> Thanks for taking the time to take a look at the 12. hxg4! variation. This morning in having Fritz 8 reanalyze the position, I confirmed the accuracy of the moves 12. hxg4! Nxg4 13. Nh3 Bh4+ 14. Kf1 Nf2 15. g3!! Bxg3!? 16. Kg2! Nxh3 17. Rf1! Nxf4+ 18. Bxf4 Bxf4 19. Nd5 Qc5 20. Rxf4 Ne5. However, after your recommended 21. Rd1 the computer assesses the position as a clear White win (+2.41 @ 14/51 depth & 678kN/s).

So, you are correct that Fischer tried to get too cute in not immediately taking the free piece and the win with 12. hxg4!, and simply overlooked the fact that 12. Bxc6?? Nxe4!! would throw away the win and give it to his young (future GM) opponent Carlos Garcia-Palermo.

Apr-21-04  patzer2: After 12...Nxe4!! note that the Black Knight is poison.

If 13. Qxe4 or 13. Bxe4, then 13...Bh4+! 14. g3 Bxg3+ 15. Kf1 Qf2# follows.

If 13. Nxe4, then 14. Rd1# is the finish.

  InspiredByMorphy: My earlier post has a lot of hogwash in it. A simple improvement for white would have been 6.d4 Nf6 7.c4 threatening 8.d5 . Or in the game 7.Nd2 also looks good.
Aug-07-05  Chessburger: hi everybody! im new here...

and this is very strange because i played a game against carlos garcia palermo today! nice game btw. and, he beat me of course. but i think i screwed the game, was draw. =(

good luck everyone.

Aug-07-05  Montreal1666: <Chessburger> And where was this?
Aug-09-05  Chessburger: in Rio grande, Argentina.
palermo come from Buenos aires. but he is lives in italy actually.

good luck

Nov-09-05  russep: What's wrong with 13. Bxe4.
Nov-09-05  AverageWoodpusher: But you have to admit she is really nice to look at!

:)

Dec-06-05  Chopin: Impressive win over Fischer. It's not surprising to see that Carlos is currently ranked 2550. He simply destroyed Fischer.
May-01-06  Atking: Fischer plaid simply a risky line in a simultanous performance. Not 1.d4 but a King Gambit for our fun. If as patzer2 (who is not) and karlzen noted (Thanks) Fischer had seen 12. ...Nxe4!! he will have play 12.hxBg4 and probably found g3! and Kg2!

  technical draw: This is no ordinary amateur Fischer lost to. He later became a GM.
Sep-19-06  whatthefat: <technical draw>
That's true, but he was only 17 here, and didn't even become an IM for another 10 years.

  Eggman: 7.dxe4 is the first move of White's that raised an eyebrow from me. A classic example of an open position with a lead in development.
Dec-03-07  RookFile: Well, 12....Nxe4 was a remarkable move.
Dec-03-07  HOTDOG: Garcia Palermo is now competing in the Italian Championship,today he lost against Caruana who has dominated the tournament with 8,5/10(still one game to be played)

  offramp: Having spent his whole career playing older players, Fischer in the early 70s had a bit of a crisis playing players younger than he.
Dec-03-09  newzild: The photo shows the position after 10...Qb6. Fischer is about to play 11.h3.
Mar-10-10  JG27Pyth: ressup:<What's wrong with 13. Bxe4.>

five years later -- 13...Bh4+ with Qf2# on the way.

Nov-30-10  estebansponton: Vamos Carlos!!!!!!! Es argentino, aunque también tiene chances de ser campeón de Italia

  Honza Cervenka: 12.hxg4(!) was not so easy decision to make. In fact, one must foresee 12...Nxg4 13. Nh3 Bh4+ 14. Kf1 Nf2 15. g3!! (the only winning move) with all its consequences as in all other lines black is at least equal, if not better. For example, 15.Nd5 loses for 15...Rxd5 as well as 15.Rh2 Bg3 16.Nd5 (16.Bxc6 is a bit better) 16...Rxd5! 17.exd5 Re8 etc.
Mar-08-12  chvsanchez: This game was, in fact, played on 20th August 1970 in La Plata, Argentina. See http://ara.org.ar/chs/ajedrez/perla....
Dec-02-12  Eduardo Bermudez: In the year 1971, when Garcia Palermo won in simuls to Fischer, Bobby was already the world number one !!
Feb-07-14  RedShield: Donaldson/Tangborn in <The Unknown Bobby Fischer> incorrectly place this game as <Cordoba, 1971>, confusing it with the simuls Fischer gave after the Petrosian match.
Nov-19-16  clement41: Just wow!
Jun-08-20  Albion 1959: Is it my imagination, but does this not look Tal ?
