ok no on can get
15..Nxc3 Why couldn't Byrne take the knight?
I kinda feel this game is overrated due to Byrne's mistakes in the opening.
oh and to chessking47 if 36. Kh1 Ra1+ 37. Kh2 Bg1+ and here if Kh1 again Ng3# the best continuation is 38.Kh3 Rh3+ or 38...Be6+ both mate after the knight on e5 blocks, it's important to note though the Ra3+ is a 3 move mate because of the Q can block on g3 but Be6+ is a 2 move mate
to lenny15 move 35. Qc7 loses completely to Bd6
Why did Byrne move KG1 for move 35 instead of QC7?
36. Kh1! and I don't see a lot of possiblities for black to play; 36... Ra1+ is useless, and so is 36... Ng3+ or 36... Nf2+ are also useless. Thinking against 36. Kh2? would fall victim to a discovered check.
Hans Kmoch noted the the game could finish one move earlier with 37... Re2+. Well, Byrne got too overconfident and he deserves to be an IM. Robert J. Fischer, should be a GM because his rating is 2780. Oh, too bad he died 4 years ago.
Ahh, The popolar game finally in chess.com!
My favorite Fischer game
"game of the century"
White was completely ridiculed!
very impressive game!!!
I mean Kf1
I wonder what would happen though if Kh1 instead of Kh1?
Move 17 was a queen sacrifice to gain development.
was this the game of the century?
..because his king is in check
i dont get move 17?
Opening: English Opening: Anglo-Indian Defense, King's Indian Formation (A15)
