|Aug-18-10|| ||truthteller908: Tal just smashed Bobby. That aint right!!!|
|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.|
