|Feb-15-13|| ||TheFocus: <solskytz> There is an Index page: Tournament Index.|
|Feb-17-13|| ||solskytz: Oh - good to know :-) was worth the posting only to receive this feedback. |
|Feb-17-13|| ||solskytz: However it would still be nice to have a drop-down menu from each individual tournament page, including all of these tournaments in the collection...|
...and come to think of it, it also wouldn't do any harm, to have from any tournament page, a link to the World Championship Index, in addition to the above - just for easy navigability.
|Feb-17-13|| ||solskytz: actually anybody who goes through this tournament catalogue will understand immediately why my suggestion to make it a drop-down menu is impractical. |
Just check it out... it will be a drop-dead menu.
|Jul-31-14|| ||offramp: User: solskytz Thank you for your comments about Bled.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||Nosnibor: The official record of the event was published by DZS of Ljubljana in 1962 and is entitled "Jubilarni Medjunarodni Veleturnir" and of course is in Serbo-croat.The book contains some excellent photographs including that of all the players in the 1931 event held in Bled. The games are annotated by Tal,Gligoric,Keres,Petrosian and Geller, with a theoretical overview by Pirc. 200 pages of sheer delight!|
|Jan-20-16|| ||perfidious: <Nosnibor> Have tried to get hold of a copy of the book, but no dice so far.|
Thanks for the heads-up!
|Jan-20-16|| ||TheFocus: <Ljubljana in 1962 and is entitled "Jubilarni Medjunarodni Veleturnir">|
It is a nice book. I think I bought mine from John Donaldson.
|Jun-22-16|| ||RookFile: Good tournament for Bisguier. He played with the big boys and held his own.|
|Jun-24-16|| ||offramp: It's odd to see Fischer going through undefeated, especially at the age of 18.|

Will we ever see another tournament book? I mean of a non-historical tournament. Which was the last tournament to have a published book? I think there was one about 12 years ago, about a Candidates' tournament, won by Topalov. I can't think of anyting since then.
I am not saying it is a <very> bad thing; just a bit of a shame and a sign of the passing of an age.
|Mar-01-17|| ||Sally Simpson: In 'Fischer - Spassky, Move by Move' by Larry Evans and Ken Smith. (an excellent book the way. A note [in some cases quite funny] after every diagram and every move.)|
In the introduction when discussing the bidding war for the match they state:
"Yugoslav journalists bitterly recalled a time 12 years ago when Fischer, on stage in front of 2,000 chess fans, counted out his money in dinars bill for bill."
That sounds like our Bobby.
|Mar-02-17|| ||offramp: Against the 6 other top 7 finishers Fischer did much better than the winner, Tal.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||ughaibu: Amazing for Fischer to manage that considering the advantage Tal accrued by the short draws with his compatriots.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||HeMateMe: aren't Bob's 11 wins better than Tal's 8? It seems that Tal could have done even better if he hadn't taken so many draws.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi HeMateMe,
In round 18 (the penultimate round) Tal agreed a 15 move draw with Portisch because he was expecting Petrosian to beat or at least draw with Fischer.
The Fischer - Petrosian game is the famous one where Fischer grinds out a win refusing a draw offer from Petrosian only because Tal was standing near by and watching the game and it would have given Tal first prize with a round to go.
Fischer vs Petrosian, 1961
|Mar-02-17|| ||HeMateMe: you can't blame Tal for that. people like to finish first. Didn't fischer agree to a bloodless draw with Gligoric so both could qualify for interzonal play, in 1959?|
I would blame Portisch for not making people work.
|Mar-02-17|| ||Sally Simpson: It was a good move by Tal, Fischer was at time trailing Petrosian by 2-0 in wins and losses. He had no reason to suspect Fischer might win.|
Tal's bad move was staying in the tournament hall, if he had not being hanging about the board like a Hooded Vulture Bobby would have accepted Petrosian's draw offer.
|Mar-02-17|| ||keypusher: <HeMateMe: aren't Bob's 11 wins better than Tal's 8? It seems that Tal could have done even better if he hadn't taken so many draws.>|
|Mar-02-17|| ||tamar: If Tal were alive, he'd make a crack about HeMateMe's higher mathematics:)|
|Mar-02-17|| ||HeMateMe: He'd probably tell me to "get new glasses." Then, we'd buy each other a shot of vodka. He'd probably drink me under the table.|
|Mar-02-17|| ||offramp: <offramp: Against the 6 other top 7 finishers Fischer did much better than the winner, Tal.>|
I agree. But, oddly, Fischer was not as ruthless as Tal with the people who finished in the bottom 5. Tal beat all of them. Fischer, a win and 4 draws.
|May-05-17|| ||colmor: Fischer has 5 games from Bled in 'My 60 memorable Games', he was playing very inspired chess in this tournament. Normally one would expect him to make a tasty snack out of the tail Enders. He could have finished a mile in front of the pack!|
|Jan-13-18|| ||Fusilli: The Soviet collusion machine at work, with all pacific draws among their four representatives, but they all also drew with Trifunovic (who had a winning position against Geller and botched it). Was Trifunovic part of the collusion too?|
|Jul-11-18|| ||ewan14: Tal short draws with Geller , Tal and Petrosian|
21 , 16 and 16 moves respectively
