|Mar-21-04|| ||Tigran Petrosian: Wait a second, I believe chessgames.com has the names mixed up. |
|Mar-21-04|| ||vonKrolock: right, Fischer was white and Reshevsky was black... ("60 Memorables", and other sources) |
|Mar-21-04|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks, we'll fix this shortly. |
|Nov-08-04|| ||Benzol: "After 38...R-B1; 39.N-R6+ taxes even Reshevsky's defensive ability" - Fischer |
|Nov-08-04|| ||von schlepstein: What's wrong with 28 Nd2? |
|Nov-08-04|| ||iron maiden: <von schlepstein> See Benzol's kibitz on Andrew Rowland Benedick Thomas... |
|Nov-08-04|| ||von schlepstein: So what did he miss? Or was he "right" about the move forcing resignation? |
|Nov-08-04|| ||Benzol: I think 28.♘d2 is a good move and seems to force 28...♕xh1+ but the dark squared bishop on g7 is providing cover for the King hence Fischer's decision to remove it. |
|Jan-07-05|| ||Hesam7: Can anyone tell me why this match was stopped? I know that there was a argument between Fischer and Reshevski but I do not know more than it. |
|Jan-07-05|| ||iron maiden: <Hesam7> Actually, Reshevsky had little to do with it. The organizers chose to move a game to an early hour when it turned out that one of their sponsors couldn't attend it at the normal time. Fischer, as with most chess players, was a late riser. He refused to play and was forfeited. After that, he refused to continue the match. It was the first major dispute that Fischer ever had with "the powers that be." |
|Jan-07-05|| ||Hesam7: Thank you <iron maiden> But Reshevski and Fischer were not so friendly with each other were they? |
|Jan-08-05|| ||iron maiden: There was always animosity between them, though it appears to have little to do with Fischer's forfeiture in this match. |
|Jan-08-05|| ||Granite: Fischer's first tantrum - one of many unfortunately. He's an embaressment to all Americans. |
|Jan-08-05|| ||Shams: <Granite> that assumes we`re capable of embarrassment. ;)
ok, jokes aside...I respectfully disagree. Fischer is not now sane and it`s arguable how stable he ever was. His boorish behavior, whatever people may think, is not really attributable to his being an American. In my opinion. |
Now Bush, on the other hand...
|Apr-14-05|| ||zb2cr: For completeness:
38 ... Kh7?; 39 Qh8#.
After 38 ... Rf8; 39 Nh6+, Kh7(forced); 40 Qxf8, Rxe5.
Black's last is forced, since there is no other way to
simultaneously defend the threats of Qg7# and Qh8#.
Now White plays 41 Qg8+, Kxh6; 41 Qh8+, Kg5; 42 Qxe5+
with an obviously crushing material advantage.
|Apr-14-05|| ||RookFile: It was funny how it was handled.
Look back at Fischer's forfeit
against Reshevsky, at the time,
Fischer got tremendous sympathy.
Funny thing is, nobody thought
about it from Reshevsky's point
of view. It was just as inconvenient
for the older man to show up at
11 am, maybe more so. Yet
the old warrior showed up and
was ready to fight, with the black
pieces, at an inconvenient time for
I think very clearly, we can
see today who was afraid in 1961.
|Feb-09-06|| ||Chesschatology: <Right Mr Thomas!>
<Benzol:I think 28.d2 is a good move and seems to force 28...xh1+ but the dark squared bishop on g7 is providing cover for the King hence Fischer's decision to remove it.>
Yeah- that's what I think too- so Was Mr.Thomas right, or was he right that he had missed something?
Bobby's comment really confused me!
|Jul-10-06|| ||mccarthpm: if 28 N to d2/W takes B/then R to f1 & Wh3|
|May-16-07|| ||timhortons: 16....e6 as then considered best defense has been consigned to the dustbin of history.....16...qd6;17.o-o-o NH5;18.H3 NF4 is the modern approach as written on eric schillers book "bobby fischers greatest games"|
|Jul-28-07|| ||Helios727: Maybe Fischer could not take the pressure of the match being tied after 11 games. Was this match supposed to be 16 games total?|
|Sep-23-07|| ||timhortons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLrG... think these explains the forfieture|
|Oct-18-07|| ||DiscerningKing: Reshevsky.. should be embrassed by this LOSS... letting Fischer sack that rook on him on g7. Well deserved Victory by Fisher!!!|
|Oct-18-07|| ||RookFile: It's funny how everybody focuses on that sac on g7. Even Fischer, who notes as a sidenote in My 60 Memorable Games a commentator's obseration that 28. Nd2 wins the queen.|
|Apr-03-10|| ||TugasKamagong: The way I heard it, the players and the organizers had a contract. The playing schedule, including the starting time, was stipulated in that contract.|
Mrs. Piatigorsky was afraid that if the 12th game took as long as the 11th game did she would not make it to Mr. Piatigorsky's music event later that evening. (Piatigorsky was a cellist.) To accommodate her, the organizers moved the game to an earlier hour.
Fischer stood by his contract and said he would play at the hour stated in it. As I'm not a lawyer, I don't know if that constituted throwing a tantrum or not.
Kidding aside, one can understand the organizers' dilemma here: give the rich and powerful sponsor what she wants, or let a chessplaying kid hold them to his contract?
|Apr-03-10|| ||Shah Mat: <Chesschatology: so was Mr. Thomas right?>|
yes, he was.
