O-O 5. O-O c6 6. d4 d5 7. cxd5 cxd5 8. Nc3 {Theory says that
Black equalizes easily against this move. The sharper 8 Ne5 is
answered satisfactorily by 8...Bf5 as in the Botvinnik-Smyslov
match 1957, and also in a later game Benko-Fischer.} Ne4
9. Qb3 Nc6 {!} 10. Be3 {Of course Black's d-Pawn was taboo.}
Na5 11. Qd1 {? Allows a very bad Pawn formation. Correct was
11 Qb4.} Nxc3 12. bxc3 b6 13. Ne5 Ba6 {Black has ideal play
against White's backward c-Pawn.} 14. Re1 Rc8 15. Bd2 e6
16. e4 Bb7 {! Of course trading white squared Bishops
highlights White weaknesses on the white squares.} 17. exd5
Bxd5 18. Bxd5 Qxd5 19. Qe2 Rfd8 {19...Nc4! was simpler.}
20. Ng4 {!?} Nc4 {? 20...h5 21 Ne3 Qd7, with a clear
advantage.} 21. Bh6 {! Suddenly White has counterplay;
21...Bxh6 is impossible because of 22 Nf6+.} f5 22. Bxg7 Kxg7
23. Ne3 Nxe3 24. Qxe3 Rc6 25. Rac1 Rdc8 26. c4 {? Better was
Qd2.} Rxc4 27. Rxc4 Rxc4 28. Qxe6 Qxe6 29. Rxe6 Kf7 {!}

easy.} Rxd4 31. Ra3 a5 32. Rc3 Ke6 33. Kg2 Kd6 34. h4 Ra4

45. Rc1 Kd4 46. Kh6 Rb7 {Because Black by approaching with his
king can win White's Rook for the b-Pawn without losing his
own h-Pawn.} 0-1

1. e4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 b6
5. a3 Bf8 {For a time Robert Byrne, the American grandmaster,
enjoyed considerable success with 5...Bxc3+ 6 bxc3 Ne7 7 Qg4
but apparently he found a clear refutation because this sharp
defence has dissappeared from his opening
repertory. "Undeveloping" pieces though as with 5...Bf8?! has
little to recomend it.} 6. f4 Nc6 {Intending to castle
Queenside. If 6...c5 7 Nf3 Nc6 8 Ne2?! gives White a clear
advantage.} 7. Nf3 Nh6 8. Bd3 {Bb5 was more precise.} Nf5
9. Ne2 h5 {...Nh4!? was a good chance to free Black's game
slightly.} 10. g3 Bb7 11. c3 Qd7 12. Qc2 O-O-O 13. b4 f6
14. Bd2 Kb8 15. O-O Nfe7 {Better was 15...Be7 and White would
answer 16 a4.} 16. Rfb1 h4 {Black takes a last chance for
counterplay.} 17. Nxh4 g5 {!} 18. fxg5 fxe5 19. Rf1 {!} exd4
20. cxd4 Bg7 21. Bc3 e5 22. Rf7 exd4 23. Rxg7 {Bb2!} Rxh4

Qg4+ 25. Ng3 dxc3 26. Qxc3 d4 27. Qd2 Ne5 28. Rf1 Nd5 29. Bf5

34...Qf4+ and 35...Rf5 wins for Black.} 35. Bxb7 Rxf5+ 36. Bf3
Nd5 {36...Qc2+ 37 Ke1 Rxf3?? 38 Qd8+ Kb7 39 Qxc7+ Ka6 40 Qc4+
Nb5 41 Qc8 mate.} 37. Rg8+ Kb7 38. Qe4 Qd2+ 39. Kg3 c6
40. Qxf5 {?? Rg7+ Ka6 41 Qc4+ forced mate.} Qe1+ {A very
clever trap considering it was 5 minute chess.} 41. Kg4 {or 41
Kh3 Qf1+ 42 Kg3 Qe1 and draws. But being ahead on time I
decided to play for a win.} Ne3+ 42. Kf4 Nxf5 43. Kxf5 Qxb4

[PlyCount "65"]

1. e4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5 {This
is Matulovic's specialty the same as his gambit in the
Sicilian defence. In blitz games there is no problems for
White because of the Black King's weaknesses. I know this
variation very well and because of that I was surprised at
Matulovic's choice.} 4. Nc3 fxe4 5. Nxe4 d5 6. Nxe5 dxe4
7. Nxc6 Qg5 {7 Qd5 gives probably more problems for White.}
8. Qe2 Nf6 9. f4 Qxf4 10. d4 Qh4+ 11. g3 Qh3 {The same was
played in the game Gheorghiu-Maric, Skopge 1968. Georghiu
played 12Na7+ but he did not get any advantage in this
position. I analyzed this position all night with Robatch and
Gheorghiu in Vinkovci. Gheorghiu showed me that game against
Maric and it was very interesting for me. Our idea was 12 Bg5}
12. Bg5 a6 13. Ba4 Bd7 14. Bxf6 gxf6 15. Qxe4+ Kf7 16. Ne5+
fxe5 17. Rf1+ Ke7 {Black has many problems. If 17...Kg8 18
Rf6! Re8 (if 18...Bxa4 19 Qd5+ with Qf7 mate) 19 Bb3+ Kg7 20
Rf7+ Kh6 21 dxe5 with a winning attack. If 17...Qxf1 18 Kxf1
Bxa4 19 Qf5+ wins.} 18. Bxd7 Kxd7 {If 18...Qxd7 19 O-O-O and
Black's King and Queen are attacked.} 19. Rf7+ Ke8 {?? Be7!!
gave good chances for a successful defence.} 20. Rxc7 Bd6
21. Rxb7 Rc8 22. O-O-O Qxh2 23. dxe5 Be7 24. Rxe7+ {After this
move Black has no hope. Maybe I had an easier way to win , but
thought I had not enough time. As a matter of fact I had three
minutes.} Kxe7 25. Qb7+ Ke6 26. Qd7+ Kxe5 27. Qd5+ Kf6
28. Rf1+ Kg6 29. Qf5+ Kh6 30. Qe6+ Kh5 31. Rf5+ Kg4 32. Rf4+

1. e4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4
4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 {A risky continuation.} 6. Nxc6 {!} bxc6
{on 6...dxc6 7 Qxd8 Kxd8 8 Bc4 White's advantage is clear.}
7. e5 {!} Ng8 8. Bc4 Bg7 9. Bf4 Qa5 10. O-O Bxe5 11. Bxe5
{Other possibilities for the initiative are 11 Re1!? Bxf4 12

Qc7 12 Nd5 cxd5 13 Qd5 Nf6 14 Qf7+ Kd8 15 Rfe1 d6 16 Bxe5 dxe5
17 Rad1+ Bd7 18 Be6 Rb8 and the game ended in a draw
eventually after an interesting struggle, Kurajica-Ostojic,
Skopje 1970.} Qxe5 12. Re1 Qc7 {?? Better was 12...Qg7 13 Ne4
d5 14 Bxd5 cxd5 15 Qxd5 Rb8 16 Rad1 with an unclear position
according to Kurajica. Also 12...Qf4! is a tough defence.}
13. Qd4 f6 14. Bxg8 Rxg8 15. Qxf6 {! Nb5! cxb5 16 Qd5 forking
the Rooks was another road to victory.} d5 {Slightly better
was 15...d6 but after 16 Re3 and 17.Rae1 Black's position was
hopeless. Or if 15...e6 16 Ne4.} 16. Re2 {? 16 Rxe7+ Qxe7 17
Qxc6+ Kf7 18 Qxa8 won easily.} Ba6 {? More tenacious was
16...e6 17 Rae1 Qf7!} 17. Nxd5 cxd5 18. Qxa6 Rf8 19. Rae1 Rf7
20. Qe6 {20 Qa4+! and 21 Qd4 won easily. Now White must be
satisfied with grounding out a long win with a Pawn ahead
endgame.} Rd8 21. c3 Kf8 22. g3 d4 23. cxd4 Rxd4 24. Qe5 Qxe5
25. Rxe5 Rd2 26. R1e2 Rxe2 27. Rxe2 Rf6 28. Kf1 Rc6 29. Ke1 e6

1. e4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer.} e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5
c5 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. bxc3 Qc7 7. Nf3 {I could have played Qg4 but
was influenced against it because Petrosian as Black had
recently beaten Diez Del Corral at Palma de Mallorca in this
line.} Ne7 8. a4 Bd7 {An interesting idea, Black plays his
Bishop to c6 the knight's square and his Knight to d7, the
Bishop's square.} 9. Bd3 Bc6 10. O-O Nd7 11. Ba3 {To prevent
11...Nb6. But clearly 11 Ng5! offered excellent prospects on
the King's flank for White, ie: 11...h6 12 Qh5 g6 (or
12...O-O? 13 Nh7 Re8 14 Nf6+ gxf 15 Qh6 f5 16 Bg5! and wins)
13 Qh3 or Qh4.} h6 12. Re1 b6 13. Nd2 {!? A standard way of
indirectly protecting the a-Pawn.} Bxa4 {? Risky.} 14. dxc5
{Possible also was 14 Qg4 and if 14...c4 15 Bxc4! dxc4 16 Bxe7
with advantage to White. But a better chance for Black is
14...O-O 15 dxc5 b5 16 c6 Nxc6! 17 Bxf8 Rxf8 with compensation
for the exchange.} bxc5 {? I was afraid of 14...Nxe5 15 cxb6
axb6 16 Bf1 ( White is not without some compensation for the
Pawn, ie: 16...Qxc3? 17 Re3 Qc7 18 Bb2 or 16...Ne5g6 17 c4 but
best for Black is 16...Bc6!} 15. Qg4 {!} Bc6 16. Qxg7 Rg8
17. Qxh6 Nxe5 18. Bxc5 {? Qf4 was crushing as after 18...c4!
(only move) 19 Bf1 Ne7g6 18 Qg5 Black is practically in
zuzwang and white threatens 19 h4 and h5.} d4 19. Be4 dxc3
20. Bxc6+ N7xc6 {?? Of course 20...Qxc6! 21 Ne4 Nf3+ 22 Kh1
(22 Kf1 Nd2+ 23 Nxd2 cxd2 wins a piece) Nxe1 23 Rxe1 O-O-O!
and Black should win because 24 Bxe7 is met by 24...Qxe4!! and
mate in four moves - For 23 Nf6+ Kd8 24 Bxe7+ Kxe7 25 Nxg8+
Rxg8 26 f3! Nxf3 27 Rxa7+ Kd6 28 Qf4+ Ne5 and Black should win
after some more checks. If 26 Ra7+ at once Ke8 27 f3 Qc4 mates
quickly} 21. Ne4 O-O-O {21...Nf3+ 22 Kh1 Nxe1 23 Nf6+ and Nxg8
wins.} 22. Red1 {Many other moves were more tenacious.} Ng4 {?
A pleasant surprise; 22...Nf3+ 23 Kh1 (23 Kf1 Nxh2+ Ke2 Qe5
etc.) 23...Rh8! 24 Bd6 Rh6 25 Bc7 Kc7 26 gxf Rdh8 with good
chances for Black.} 23. Qh4 {White plays on Black's weak d6
square and a safe King position. White takes over the
initiative.} Rxd1+ 24. Rxd1 f5 25. Nd6+ Kb8 26. Nb5 Qg7 {or
26...Qa5 27 Qh7!} 27. Bd6+ Kb7 28. Rb1 Kc8 29. Qg3 {Bg3! was
crushing.} Qb7 {? ...Nf6 gave more chances for saving the
game.} 30. Nxc3 {Maybe Black was playing for traps, ie: 30 Bf4
Rd8! and 31 Nd6+? Rxd6 or 31 h3? Qxb5! or 31 Nxc3? Qxb1+
etc. } Qa6 31. h3 {31 Qf3!} Nf6 32. Qh4 {Qf3 was better.} Nd7
33. Qh7 Rd8 34. Qf7 Qc4 35. Rb3 Qd4 {?? ...Nd4!} 36. Qxe6 {The
rest is simple enough.} Qf6 37. Qd5 Nde5 38. Nb5 Qf7 39. Qc5

is 9...b6? 10d4 with an advantage for White as in the game
Smyslov-Reshevsky, the match of the century, Belgrade

ahead.} 10. a3 a5 11. Rb1 Bd7 12. Bd2 Ne8 13. Nd5 Ne7 14. b4
Nxd5 15. cxd5 {?? Very anti-positional. Correct of course was
15 exd5. Now Black gets a strong passed a-Pawn, also White's

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

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

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

1. e4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. a3 {I
chose Alekhine's move inspite of the fact that 4 e5 was a
safer move.} Bxc3+ 5. bxc3 dxe4 6. Qg4 Nf6 {Alekhine
recommended 6...Kf8 but after 7 Qxe4, White has a big
advantage.} 7. Qxg7 Rg8 8. Qh6 Rg6 {Usually it is better to
play this move later, 8...Nbd7 played Kovacevic against me at
"Turnir mira" in Zagreb. I played 9 Ne2 b6 10 Bg5 Qe7
threatening ...Ng4, 11 Qh4 Bb7 with difficult play.} 9. Qe3
Nc6 10. Bb2 b6 {At "Turnir mira" Zagreb, 1970, Uhlman played
10...Qd6 but after 11 O-O-O Bd7 12 f3 White had a big
advantage.} 11. O-O-O Bb7 12. h3 h5 {? Weak move because the
Pawn at that place is weak and it is loss of time but Black
wanted to prevent g4.} 13. c4 Qd6 14. Ne2 O-O-O 15. Nf4 Rgg8
{If 15...e5 16 Nxg6 exd4 White has many interesting
possibilities the most sure is 17 Nf4 dxe3 18 Rxd6 Rxd6 19
fxe3 h4 20 Be2 with a winning position in the endgame with two
strong Bishops.} 16. Be2 Qe7 {If 16...Na5 which is more active
17 g3.} 17. d5 exd5 18. cxd5 Ne5 {If 18...Na5 19 c4 Ba6 20 Qc3
with good play.} 19. c4 Ba6 20. Qc3 Nfd7 {If 20...Rge8 21 Kb1
and White is safe because on 21...Qc5 White has many moves;
Black's Knight on f6 is under attack. Maybe also 22 Rd4.}
21. d6 {!} cxd6 {? Black overlooked a piece. Black has got to
play 21...Qg5 then 22 g3 is possibly better for White.} 22. c5
{!!} Bxe2 {?? Uhllman was surprised by the last move and he
made a mistake taking White's bishop on e2 - He had to play
22...Nxc5 trying for compensation on the Queen's side. If
22...Nc5 23 Bxa6+ Kb8 24 Bb5 a)...Ncd3+ 25 Nxd3 Rc8 26 Nxe5
with a winning position b) 24...a6 25 Be2 Rc8 26 Kb1 Ncd3 27
Qd4 Nxf4 28 Bxa6 Rc5 29 Qxe4 with a probably winning
position. Possible is also 27 Nd5.} 23. cxd6+ Nc5 24. dxe7
Rxd1+ 25. Rxd1 Bxd1 26. Qxe5 Ba4 27. Kb1 Bc6 28. Nd5 Bxd5
29. Qxd5 1-0

Game 10
[Event "Herceg Novi blitz"]
[Site "Herceg Novi blitz"]
[Date "1970.??.??"]
[EventDate "?"]
[Round "?"]
[Result "0-1"]
[White "Vlastimil Hort"]
[Black "Robert James Fischer"]
[ECO "A48"]

[BlackElo "?"]
[PlyCount "68"]

1. d4 {Notes by Bobby Fischer} Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. Bg5 h6
{Forcing White to decide at once on which diagonal to place
his Queen's Bishop.} 4. Bh4 Bg7 5. Nbd2 g5 6. Bg3 Nh5 7. e4 d6
8. Bd3 {? Five minute chess...Better was 8 c3.} g4 {! Wins a
Pawn.} 9. Nh4 Bxd4 10. c3 Bf6 11. Nf5 Nxg3 {But not 11...e6 12
Qg4 and White regains his Pawn.} 12. fxg3 {Dubious since it
cedes control of the e5-square to Black. Apparently White was
not interested in positional fine points at this stage. But in
any event after 12 hxg3, ...h5 or ...e6, white would be a Pawn
down without any initiative. Now at least White has the f-file
to work with.} e6 13. Ne3 h5 14. O-O Nd7 15. Qe2 Qe7 16. Rae1
Ne5 17. Ndc4 Bd7 18. Na5 {!?} b6 {But not ...O-O-O?? 19 Ba6!
Bc6 20 Nxc6 Nxc6 21 Bxb7+! etc.} 19. Nac4 {Maybe 19 Nb3 gave
more tactical chances for White.} O-O-O 20. Nxe5 Bxe5 21. Ba6+
Kb8 22. Nc4 Bg7 23. a4 {!? White offers his a-Pawn for the
initiative.} h4 {!? Black offers his g-Pawn for the
initiative! All very interesting.} 24. a5 hxg3 25. hxg3 {White
had no time to open tha a-file, ie: 25 axb6 Rxh2 26 bxc7+ (or
26 bxa7+ Ka8! not ...Kxa7 27 Qe3+! and 28 Qxg3 etc.) Kxc7 27
Qg4 Rg8! 28 Qxg3 Be5! 29 Qxg8 Qh4 and wins.} b5 26. Ne3 c6
27. c4 {?? Weakens d4 irretrievably, he should take the
g-Pawn.} b4 28. c5 Bd4 {!} 29. cxd6 Qxd6 30. Rf4 Rh5 31. Rd1
{??} Bxe3+ 32. Qxe3 Qxd1+ 33. Rf1 Qd6 34. Rc1 c5 0-1
