The rules that apply to mortals (Addison) do =not= apply to geniuses (Fischer).
Like in bishop versus knight endgames. When Capablanca has the bishop, the bishop is stronger than the knight. But when Capablanca has the knight, the knight is stronger than the bishop. :-)
|Jul-10-07|| ||TaxiDriver: Heres another example when Bobby was quite a bit stronger! ; )|
|Jul-11-07|| ||RookFile: It's said that Fischer practically laughed out loud when he saw 1... d5 in this game.|
|Jul-12-07|| ||John Thornton: Said by whom?|
|Jul-12-07|| ||utssb: <John Thornton: Said by whom?>|
I wouldn't doubt that. Such things have been spoken of many times.
|Dec-23-07|| ||PKNJ: Frank Brady wrote in 'Profile of a Prodigy,' his Fischer bio, that "Addison's Center Counter Defense brought a wide smile to Fischer's face."|
|Dec-23-08|| ||KingG: Black should probably have tried 13...f5, trying to get some counterplay, and preventing White from taking control of the e4 and f5 squares as in the game.|
|Jan-08-09|| ||PugnaciousPawn: The Scandinavian can actually be an effective weapon, but you must be precise! 3...Qd8 was Addison's first mistake, as 3...Qa5 is the correct move in the system. Defenses like the Scandinavian take the opponent out of book lines.|
|Mar-04-09|| ||fischerstein: Addison played this opening like a patzer. I think that 6... Qc8 was horrible. Nc6 would have been much better. After only 7 moves he's way behind in development and his queen side is just ridiculous. Anyway, he brought it upon himself by playing the Scandinavian the way he did.|
|Mar-04-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Fischerstein: How would black have continued after 6...Nc6 7 Qxf5?|
|Mar-04-09|| ||Absentee: What was Addison thinking, playing the scandinavian against Fischer?|

Nice game by Fischer- it's a bit like his famous win over Najdorf actually.

|Oct-06-11|| ||jbtigerwolf: Fischer has it going on, but this resignation looks premature.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||jbtigerwolf: Actually... I see it! Fischer goes a pawn down, but opens his c-file. Not only that, but attacking with Rc1 puts his Rook at the base of that c-file. He has what I have learned is an 'isolani pawn structure' and it's beautiful. He gets tempi too! I think I might adopt this tactic.|
|Nov-21-11|| ||SoundWave: <PugnaciousPawn: 3...Qd8 was Addison's first mistake, as 3...Qa5 is the correct move in the system.> |
3...Qd8 is a perfectly playable line although Qa5 is perhaps slightly better.
|Nov-21-11|| ||SteinitzLives: Actually, the rage is now 3. . . . Qd6. Svidlar uses it.|
|Nov-21-11|| ||harrylime: < SteinitzLives: Actually, the rage is now 3. . . . Qd6. Svidlar uses it. >|
Cool. Would've loved to have seen Svidlar playing Qd6 against Fischer..
Oh, sorry, might add, against a Fischer armed with a Lap Top .. lol
|Nov-21-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: Addison tried to make this a sloppy tactical game (best chance against Fischer), but Fischer was stronger than him at tactics too. In hindsight, I think Addison did the best he could.|
|Jul-27-12|| ||JoergWalter: <AnalyzeThis: Addison tried to make this a sloppy tactical game (best chance against Fischer)...>|
took Fischer a handful of excellent moves to demonstrate that:
and the thing is done.
|Jul-29-12|| ||diceman: <Absentee:

Fischer finished 3.5 points ahead of the field with 15 wins, 1 loss, and 7 draws.
I dont think Addison was the important element in this game. :):):)
|Jul-29-12|| ||JoergWalter: Addison would have become a professional chess player had he qualified in that tournament.
I guess he became a lawyer.
However, he drew Karpov in an exciting breathtaking game
W G Addison vs Karpov, 1970
|Jul-29-12|| ||master of defence: Why not 23...Qxb1+ 22.Bxb1 Bxb1? Isnīt better for black|
|Jul-29-12|| ||perfidious: <master of defence> The snag is that 25.Nc7+ Kd7 26.Nxa8 wins, as Black loses his other rook if he snatches the knight on a8.|
|Jul-29-12|| ||RookFile: <What was Addison thinking?>|
My guess is he had the same thought Viktor Krueger had in Highlander:
"I'd rather burn out than fade away".
That is, he could play some defense like the Ruy Lopez and get ground down in 45 moves over so, without mercy.
Or, he can take a shot and try to make this a sloppy tactical game.
His execution was flawed, but on a high level, I think he had the right idea, playing against a much stronger opponent.
