Fischer wins with b6! but Kh7 instead as played against Dr. Anthony Saidy should also win too. :D
1. c4 {Notes by Wade.} e5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. g3 f5 4. Bg2 Nf6 5. d3 Bc5 6. e3 f4{A sacrifice. The soundness of the move is questioned, but there is no doubt it leads to lively play.} 7. exf4 O-O 8. Ne2 Qe8 9. O-O d6 10. Na4 Bd4 11. Nxd4 exd4 12. h3 h5 13. a3 a5 14. b3 Qg6 15. Nb2 Bf5 16. Qc2 Nd7 17. Re1 Nc5 18. Bf1 Ra6 {A good move (!). Fischer is trying to use every piece to exert pressure against White's position. This move seems to carry it to an extreme, as it requires great judgement to sense that the rook is not being put out of play.} 19. Bd2 Rb6 20. Bxa5 Rxb3 21. Bd2 Ra8 22. a4 Ra6 23. a5 b6
[d] 6k1/2p3p1/rpnp2q1/P1n2b1p/2Pp1P2/1r1P2PP/1NQB1P2/R3RBK1 w - - 0 24

[d]6k1/1pp3p1/r1np2q1/P1n2b1p/2Pp1P2/1r1P2PP/1NQB1P2/R3RBK1 b - - 0 1

Deep Junior 10.1, Hiarcs 11.2, Zappa Mexico, and Naum 2.2 saw Kh7, but switched to b6 with a higher eval.

Would you agree that white is lost after b6! or Kh7? :?
