Oct-29-11  dinekum: what, no comments to this game???
Jul-01-13  Zugzwangovich: <dinekum> Here's a couple. First, it was played not in '70 but in '71 after the Petrosian candidates match. Second, it's the last time RJF met the Caro-Kann in his recorded career and interestingly he returns to his first love the Two Knights variation after having mostly shunned it for a decade.
Jul-01-13  PhilFeeley: At move 42, black had 4 pawns to one. He should have won this game!
Jul-01-13  newjerm: At move 42, black has a force checkmate. e.g. Ke5!
Jul-01-13  getnacke: You are right newjerm, houdini says mate in 10 moves!
Jul-01-13  RookFile: Black did well. It's tough. The GM circles the boards rapidly, and bangs out his move. You're supposed to move right away, or maybe get one pass. That's probably what saved Fischer.
Sep-27-13  victor antoni: en la jugada 33- del negro gana con torre por peon + no puede comer con rey y si come con dama dxc + dc1 y d3d+ y lo demas es facil para complicar la partida y ganar!!!!!!!
Oct-22-13  Zugzwangovich: This game was a veritable comedy of errors, to judge from John Donaldson's annotations in "The Unknown Bobby Fischer". The players take turns throwing away wins and draws practically from start to finish. Padula finally outfumbles RJF with 53...Ka5??, when Ka7 would have left him only slightly worse.

  Dionysius1: <Rookfile> That's not the way the simuls I've seen work. Yes, the GM cirlces the boards rapidly and makes his move as he goes. But you aren't supposed to move right away - you wait until he or she comes round again. It only gets like you suggest when the GM only has one game left to play and even then you have a reasonable time to respond - not like in classical time games, but no worse than a five minute game (and I've never been in that situation).
Oct-22-13  RookFile: Yes, that's actually what I meant - you make your move in front of the GM so he can see it. Thanks.

Borislav Ivanov would have won this against Fischer.
