  Ron: The recent Berlin terrorist attack was done by a man from Tunisia, who went through various European countries in the Schengen Area before, and after, his attack.

And here we have chessgames.com's Game of the Day, called "A Night in Tunisia."

I find this somewhat in poor taste, though I guess it isn't as bad as chessgames's "Richter Scale" K Richter vs Gruenfeld, 1928

after over 230,000 people had died in the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake.

Jan-06-17  Mendrys: The Berlin attack was weeks ago. It's very likely a coincidence that the attackers home country has been invoked by CG.

  Ron: <Mendrys> By my count, its about 17 days ago. And its still fresh in a lot of people minds.

I am interested in what chessgaes.com says.

Jan-06-17  ughaibu: Ron: You have forced a tenuous connection that I can't imagine any serious reason for finding offensive. On the other hand, the excessive claims to be offended at the drop of a hat, I do find offensive. Your comments are insulting to the admin. and the other members.

  Ron: <ughaibu> But surely you are aware of the previous poor taste they showed:

K Richter vs Gruenfeld, 1928

If that wasn't done, I doubt I would be speculating about this Game of the Day.

But you know what, I just found out there is a jazz piece called "Night in Tunisia". I'm not a connoisseur of jazz.

Jul-12-18  Ulhumbrus: <Howard: Fischer said (according to Evans' The Chess Opening for You) that he actually had spent more time on 13.a3 than on any other move in the game. He wanted to safeguard his queenside in case his kingside attack failed to go through.> Interesting, and possibly instructive. So Fischer did not want to gamble his queenside on a king side attack which he was not sure would succeed.

lovely attack, finished off with the double check. Mig "got an offer he couldn't refuse."

  offramp: <Howard: So, 29.Bg4 would have forced mate-in-12, according to Stockfish ?! Never would have guessed !>

I am very surprised as well. Here is the line that SF gives. It so similar that at first I could not see what the difference was.

Here iae the moves of the Stockfish mate in 12.
29.Bg4 dxc2 30.Rc1 Be2 31.Qh6 Qf8 32.Qxh7+ Kxh7 33.hxg6+ Kxg6 34.Bxe2 Rc3 35.Bh5+ Kh7 36.Bf3+ Qh6 37.Be4+ Kg8 38.Rxh6 Rxg3+ 39.fxg3 Kf8 40.Rh8#

What I found odd was that part of the sequence was that "defensive" 30.Rc1 move. I don't think many human would foresee that quiet move in the middle of a huge queen-sacrificing mate-in-12.
It is necessary to stop ...c1=♕, of course.

If you use a light-box and overlay the game continuation with the Stockfish variation, you'll see that after
29.Bg2
Black could have played
29...Qf8.

..leading to the same moves but again slightly changed around a bit: 30.Be4 dxc2 31.hxg6 fxg6 32.Bxg6 hxg6 33.Rh8+ Kf7 34.Rxf8+ Rxf8 35.Qh6... There is no immediate mate, but Black is a long way behind on material.

Sep-29-18  Violin sonata: I remember Chessbase.com has been discussed about this opening, just a few weeks ago. There is a game that was played by Wolfgang Uhlman as black, which is black won. Anyway I'm just new here, so i can't posted a game with you guys, cause i don't know how
Sep-29-18  Ironmanth: Bam! Great little game; thanks chessgames!

  harrylime: This game by Bobby was played 51 years ago.

At the time HE WAS THE BEST CHESS PLAYER in the world.

Since then a lot of time has passed ! lol

But we can still take humble homage in the resident Grandmaster Guru's on this site who constantly try to find fault in Bobby's games...

  harrylime: This game was played in 1967 ..

ALL the silicon input from you GM's on here cannot time machine back to 1967 when this game was played !

lol lol lol

Bobby was the best Chess player in the world at that time and there was no INTERNET. And NO COMPUTERS.

lol lol

Sep-30-18  Howard: It's debatable whether Bobby was really #1 as early as 1967, in my view.

If he'd qualified for the 1968 Candidates, Spassky, Larsen, and Korchnoi would have given him a run for his money--no doubt about it.

As for Petrosian, I'm not sure Fischer would have gotten that far.

Nov-03-18  Everett: Spassky was top-notch, hungry for the title and nearly unbeatable from 64-70. His only blip was the 66 match.

If Bobby sat for any particular reason besides mental illness during this period, it may have been due to the prospect of facing the very best version of Boris.

  diceman: Fischer was smart.

He waited for the weak:

Taimanov
Larsen
Petrosian
Spassky

before he took the title.

Nov-06-18  Howard: The book Kings of Chess (1985) makes the assertion that Fischer may have indirectly paved the way for Karpov, stating that in 1974 Karpov's rivals such as Spassky and Petrosian, were never quite the same after being crushed by Fischer.

The book states that Karpov merely "stepped over the bodies of the wounded".

Questionable logic, on my opinion, but you never know.

Nov-06-18  Petrosianic: <Questionable logic.>

No logic at all, really. Just a wild claim. Both Spassky and Petrosian were playing in the Candidates into the 1980's.

Petrosian hit age 40 in 1969, and Spassky in 1977. It's no surprise that neither was quite as good as in their early 30's.

Even Larsen played in the Candidates in his 40's.
