1. g3 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} g6 2. Bg2 Bg7 3. Nf3 c5 4. c3

Nf6 5. O-O O-O 6. d4 {I played this opening in Benko's style.}

d6 {? The ensuing endgame is clearly better for White because

his Bishop on g2 is more active than Black's on g7 and Black

has weaker squares. Neither is particularly recommendable

6...Qb6!? 7 d5! as in Benko-Fischer, Curacao 1962, when

Black's Queen on b6 was misplaced. Correct for Black was

6...cxd 7 cxd d5! with an equal game as in Smyslov-Fischer in

this same Blitz tournament.} 7. dxc5 dxc5 8. Qxd8 Rxd8 9. Be3

Na6 10. Na3 Nd5 11. Rfd1 Bg4 12. Bd2 h6 {To keep White out of

g5; if 12...Nac7 but after 13 Nc4 b6? (otherwise 14 Na5 with

pressure) 14 Nce5 Be6 (14...Bxe5 Nxe5 Bxe2 16 Re1 Ba6 17 c4

Nf6 18 Bc3 threatening 19 Nc6 and 19 Ba8 should win) 15 e4 Nf6

16 Nc6! Re8 17 Bf4 Na6 18 Bf1 c4 19 Ng5, Black is lost.}

13. h3 {Nb5, or Re1 were probably more exact.} Be6 14. Nb5

Ndc7 {14...Nb6 gave more counter play.} 15. a4 Bb3 16. Rdc1

Nxb5 17. axb5 Nc7 18. Be3 {!} Nxb5 19. Bxc5 b6 {?? It was not

necessary to give away a Pawn. Correct was 19...e6 still after

20 e3 threatening Nd4, White keeps an edge.} 20. Bxe7 Re8

21. Ba3 Rad8 {21...Rxe2 22 Bf1! wins the exchange.} 22. e3 {A

Pawn up and a powerful square on d4, the position is easily

winning for White.} a5 23. Nd4 Nxa3 24. Rxa3 Bc4 25. Bf1 Bd5

26. Bg2 Bc4 27. Ra4 Bd3 28. b4 {!} axb4 29. Rxb4 Rd6 30. Rd1

Bc2 31. Rd2 Bf5 32. Rdb2 Rc8 {32...Rb8 ofcourse was slightly

more tenacious, but after 33 Nxf5 gxf5, Black's pawn structure

on the King side is hopeless.} 33. Rxb6 Rxb6 34. Rxb6 Rxc3

35. Nxf5 gxf5 36. Bd5 {Rb5 was more precise.} Rc7 37. Rb5 Re7

38. Bc4 Re5 {?} {Better to give up the Pawn on f5 with 38...f4

or Bf8 it is just a matter of time in any case.} 39. Rb7 Kh7

40. Rxf7 Kg6 41. Rc7 Bf8 42. Rc6+ Kg7 43. Bd3 Be7 44. Bc2 Ra5

45. Kg2 1-0
