|Apr-23-04|| ||vonKrolock: oh, never mind, Lawrence, my software is a weaky amateur CM9000... I only noticed that Fischer played sound and strong moves (what a novelty!), and that those wasnt enough to outplay Korchnoi whithout the Zeitnot factor!! PS: 38...Rxd5! seems a good alternative too for Black |
|Apr-25-04|| ||Lawrence: <vonK>, not so weak, winner of Leiden last year and just about holding its own this year against the likes of Shredder, Ruffian, Hydra, Chess Tiger, and Diep. |
|Apr-27-04|| ||vonKrolock: ok, Lawrence, thanks for info... I just am fancing whith which name he played this Year in Leiden (i'm in Chessbase whith the Tournament's report posted today). PS: hablss castellano? |
|Apr-27-04|| ||Lawrence: <vonK>, CM9k engine is The King, and it knows how to play chess! Hablo castellano pero con un fuerte accento canadiense. |
|Apr-28-04|| ||vonKrolock: thanks, Lawrence... Yes, "The King" is a very sophisticated player, in our last blitz he gaves me mate whith a Queen's sac combination... thanks for the very esclarecedores remarks about Capa's name's origin, it's an obra maestra de etimologia genealogica (for the others: see Carl Schlechter page) PS: i mix spanish, french words in my english to writ speedily - my natural langage is the portuguese... |
|Sep-27-04|| ||aw1988: <Lawrence: <vonK>, not so weak, winner of Leiden last year and just about holding its own this year against the likes of Shredder, Ruffian, Hydra, Chess Tiger, and Diep.> But if it beats Junior pigs will fly :) |
|Apr-25-05|| ||khalil the King: about the game it is interesting to see if according to fischer the suggestion of Gligoric10. ...d5, the best, has been played anywhere|
|Apr-25-05|| ||vonKrolock: <khalil the King> Before becoming Gligoric's suggestion, <10...d5> was played in Samisch vs H W Duenhaupt, 1946 first victory for Black in base J Littlewood vs Gligoric, 1960|
Good victory for Black - Not yet here P. Ostojic vs L. Kaufman "Marshall Inv" 1979

|May-12-05|| ||e4Newman: is this really the only c91 fischer ever played? it's the only one i could find in the chessgames database.|
|May-12-05|| ||chessgames.com: You'll find a lot more under C92: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
|May-15-05|| ||e4Newman: Quite right, and thanks chessgames. But I'm particularly interested in games where d4 is played without h3. I've been playing with it lately and find it reduces white's chances in the endgame, but takes immediate advantage of black's position.|
|May-19-05|| ||woodenbishop: I love the way Fischer smacks around the powerful Korchnoi in this game... one in which he had the initiative throughout.|
|Jul-31-05|| ||who: Fritz gives 27...Bxd4 28.Qxd4 Qc3 29.Qxc3 bxc3 as drawing, and 39...g5 as at least keeping black in the game (+0.78 instead of +2.43 which the move played is evaluated at).|
|Sep-05-05|| ||SEVEN: I never understood why this game is called "Gaston and Alphonse"
Does anybody know?|
|Sep-05-05|| ||me to play: Perhaps due to the careful maneuvering on the part of both players through much of the game...a hesitancy to commit ala the characters of Gaston and Alphonse. http://www.toonopedia.com/alphgast....|
|Nov-14-05|| ||tjipa: A fascinating game! In his new book, Korchnoi shows how Fischer has quoted his (VK's) comments in his own (RJF's). And gives some more analysis. Better moves he suggests are: 21.Bd2 or 21.Re2; 23...g6; 35.Qf4; 36...Rb7; 37.Rc6 or 37.Bd3. And of course the crucial ...g5 on 38. and 39.|
|Mar-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: stunning game bt Fischer|
|Jul-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: sorry, meant to change the t to a y|
|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 36 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
|Jan-24-13|| ||leka: After the game Korchnoi tought that 14. knight a5?? was a mistake. I believe Korchnoi tought that 14. knight b6 is better|
|Sep-09-13|| ||rjsolcruz: In Rudy Canonigo of Paralympics vs Paul Casiano of UP, Cardoso Memorial Cup held last Sept 7, 2013 in Meralco, Canonigo continued with the not so popular, but logical, 10 h3.|
Canonigo is a partially blind player and is Philippine representative to the IBCA.
|Jan-24-17|| ||zanzibar: In the Gospel of Korchnoi, he was only in slight time trouble - missing some drawing chances. He even claims that Fischer didn't contest the assertion that Korchnoi had the better position before the blunder.|
Also, the possibility that Fischer helped Yanofsky prepare is mentioned.
|Feb-19-17|| ||zanzibar: GoK = CiML (1978)|
|Feb-19-17|| ||zanzibar: Find 39...g5 is very hard, Black has to allow White a passer on the d-file which would require tremendous calculation power to envision how to stop.|
Black had better drawing chances earlier, and both players made small, but significance misplays before the critical move 39.
(Based on engine walk-through at ~24-ply depth or better)
However, Korchnoi claims (CiML p44) that
<He gained the advantage from the opening, but then let me off the hook. In slight time trouble, I missed some drawing chances, and lost. I recall that I was very upset by this defeat.>
OK, I can buy all of the above, but K continues:
<On the following day, I bet Fischer that I had stood better in the position where I had blundered. He smiled, but didn't argue.>
Assuming K believed in his bet, I disagree. Playing over the game, Black never had the advantage, and was always playing to equalize.
Let's just note that no other game in <MillBase> follows K's "novelty" 17...c4, as White isn't too perturbed by the resulting bishop outpost on c3.
|Nov-06-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: My first time seeing this game is today. What a fun one!|
The cg.com db gives the head-to-head results between these two as 2-2, with 4 draws.
In blitz, it was one win each, with the black pieces both times!
A testament to how these great players both fought hard to win with either color.
