|Nov-05-10|| ||Peligroso Patzer: For the historical record, according to the tournament book by Golombek, this game was played in Round 13 (not 21) on Monday, 28 September 1959.|
|Nov-05-10|| ||Petrosianic: Yes, they played in Rounds 6, 13, 20 and 27 (not 21). Fischer was White in the 2nd and 4th games, and this is the second, so Round 13.|
|Nov-05-10|| ||Eric Farley: Fischer once commented on 1.e4 : "Best by test." I might add, "My foot!"
The annotation of chess games should be
like this: 1. e4 ??? White might as well resign.
|Nov-05-10|| ||Whitehat1963: You know, <Eric Farley>, crack kills. You should really put down the pipe and check into a rehab program.|
|May-18-11|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here:
|May-18-11|| ||OneArmedScissor: thanks Kingscrusher!|
|Aug-16-11|| ||patzer777: After these games Tal was asked for an autograph. He signed both his and fischer's name and quipped "I've beaten Bobby so often-I have the right to sign for him!"|
|Aug-28-11|| ||jack bruce: why 28 Re2?|
|Dec-01-11|| ||HeMateMe: Killer pun; monster crush by Tal.|
|Dec-03-11|| ||technical draw: <Killer pun; monster crush by Tal.>|
Thanks <HeMateMe>. That's my pun...
|Dec-16-11|| ||palagalaako: Hmm its a sicilian game right? Can i ask a beginner's question about it? I try to play with sicilian as black and the first moves went like this:|
1 e4 c5
2 Nf3 d6
then White goes
3 Bb5+ ...
What's the best reply for it?i tried 3 ... Nd7 4 Bxd7 Qxd7 and 3 ... Bd7 4 Bxd7 Qxd7 but always ended up losing.. Should i move a6 first before d6 to do the Najdorf or are there variations similar to the moves i did?
|Dec-16-11|| ||King Death: <palagalaako> You can play either 3...Nd7 or 3...Bd7, though ...Nd7 is a little more interesting. Here are games for each line: first 3...Nd7, J Curdo vs R Byrne, 1994 and 3...Bd7, Browne vs Quinteros, 1974.|
|Dec-16-11|| ||palagalaako: Oh wow thanks for those games..i think i'm just intimidated as my friend exchanges early.. i dont feel comfortable that my queenside pieces were exchanged in the openings..i'l try to work out with .... Nd7, i think it fares better..|
|Dec-28-12|| ||plang: This must be one of Fischer's worst games with 6 Bc4. After he omits 11 a3 his knights are chased to passive positions and after 17..d5 he is close to lost. Tal did avoid one nice Fischer trap: if 25..Bxg2? 26 Qxf4! and it is White who would have been winning.|
|Jan-11-13|| ||talsqueen: The turning point is 11. ____ B4, after that White has a discernible expression of haplessness....and then smashed!|
|Nov-26-13|| ||Meaux: <joelsontang: Fischer says white should play 10.f5 instead of 10.0-0?...any comment???> Wow, did Fischer really say that about this game? I thought it was wise. I do not feel like that was where he went wrong.|
|Nov-26-13|| ||Meaux: < ChessYouGood: Fischer was american - americans can't play chess> Fischer became as UNAmerican as they come, God rest his soul.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Meaux: Oh my, after further review, castling there was where he went wrong.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Meaux: Bobby, I hope that you can hear me from chess heaven and forgive me: You were an American hero in 1972 and are still my hero today. I am reading ENDGAME and have a fresh perspective and a whole new theory regarding your behavior in the end. I just really miss you!|
|Dec-02-14|| ||MindCtrol9: Fisher was outplayed in this game.Tal played solid the aperture in this Sicilian.Good coordination.This is an instructive game.|
|Dec-02-14|| ||1d410: Not even close|
|Jan-29-15|| ||auldoxon: Fischer got into a very bad position without an apparent blunder. I guess 11. f5 is the first mistake, followed by some inaccuracies. A credit must be given to Tal for his great play. He did make some inaccuracies late in the game but this didn't hurt because he already had decisive position.|
|Jan-29-15|| ||auldoxon: Perhaps the variation that Fischer played is relatively weak.|
|Jan-30-15|| ||RookFile: I'm not an expert on this, but I don't think Fischer usually put the queen on f3 in all those games he did win with this.|
|Mar-08-15|| ||Uhohspaghettio: The queen does go on f3 in the main line of 6. Bc4. No guys these moves are all standard book and you won't be able to pick out the first inaccuracy made without a lot of research and likely a computer.|
