|May-01-08|| ||littlefermat: It's nothing more than a public service announcement that you did this stuff, and it's been documented throughout various pages of CG. It's a way of saving other users from wasting their time.|
|May-01-08|| ||RookFile: Try to focus, Plato.|
|May-30-08|| ||hedgeh0g: Perhaps you two should meet up somewhere and have a punch-up.|
|May-30-08|| ||RookFile: We already did that. Plato and I had our grudge match. (He won: he's a master). He keeps coming back for more, under different user names.|
|Sep-28-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: WOW! Now that is some direct chess right there!|

Incredible ass-whooping meted out by Fischer here.
|Jan-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 19...? Here Black hung a piece (well, maybe) with 19...Nf5?? weird.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||newzild: Yeah, black blundered a piece pretty bad. But he was already lost.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||parisattack: Ouch! Scandinavian probably not the best pick against Fischer - he thrived on the initiative. See also Fischer-Addison 1970.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||Travis Bickle: I read one time a GM played the Scandanavian against Fischer and Bobby started to laugh. LOL!! This wasnt a chess game it was a slow suicide.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||IMlday: In his 2007 notes Fischer is less critical of the variation giving 4..g6!? and blaming the disaster on 8..0-0? instead of 8..Bxh6 9.Qxh6 Be6 aiming to castle long.|
|Feb-18-09|| ||newzild: Where did you find Fischer's 2007 notes?|
|Feb-21-09|| ||hackmate: Fischer's 2007 notes are here
|Feb-22-09|| ||Bautismo: Also 10... gxh5 is a terrible move... why open the strong kingside structure in that way?|
|Feb-22-09|| ||IMlday: In the 2007 notes he also sislikes 10..gxh5. The best defence: 10..Bf5 11.f3 Nbd7 (improving on 1969's 11..Bxh6)12.g4! Be6 13.Bxg7 Kxg7 14.hxg6 fxg6 15.Qh6+ "with loads of pressure, but at least Black isn't down material as before."|
Maybe Fritz could analyze likewise, but what would Fritz know of the problematic chandelier or hotel donkey at Sousse 1967?
|Feb-22-09|| ||Aspirador: <Maybe Fritz could analyze likewise, but what would Fritz know of the problematic chandelier or hotel donkey at Sousse 1967?> You would be surprised. How do you think the Fritz handicap modes are programmed?|
|Feb-23-09|| ||ughaibu: I guess Fritz might be able to read Profile of a Prodigy: http://books.google.com/books?id=Ab...|
|Feb-23-09|| ||IMlday: The thing with the donkey is that even if the hypothetical forger had discovered the fact that a hotel donkey existed, what would he gain by (begrudgingly) explaining the purpose of the "foul beast"?
It is the type of thing one would certainly not dwell on, if one's purpose was forgery, because many people who were there might easily spot one's deception.|
Our hypothetical forger would also need to imitate an extremely unconventional mind. Which way the ♘s point in diagrams, or their colour in figurine notation, are familiar conventions which only a rare and bold mind would consider changing.
Likewise !/2 is an annotator's punctuation which I've never seen before: half an exclamation mark.
Consistent innovation is not easy to mimic.
In addition somehow our hypothetical forger would have to acquire various original, unpublished photos up to and including 2007 (page ix in colour).
All things considered the possibility of the book being a forgery seems highly improbable.

Could you please move the discussion about the book to a more appropriate page, such as the Fischer page? This one is supposed to be about the Fischer-Robatsch game, and the posts about the book are becoming less and less relevant.
|Feb-27-09|| ||chessgames.com: Please keep the discussion on this page relevant to the specific game above, and not about the "61 Memorable Games" controversy. Feel free to discuss anything related to Bobby Fischer on our Robert James Fischer page. Thanks.|
|Mar-19-09|| ||swarmoflocusts: Fischer: "What the hell is the Scandinavian? That's the Dragon you're playing! Pry open the h-file..."|
|Aug-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Fischer really hated 2...Qxd5|
|Apr-17-11|| ||mccarthpm: karpov crushes this opening against rogers who was the expert on it after robatsch|
|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 41 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
|Sep-12-13|| ||hoodrobin: An easy task for RJF.|
