Lucy: Mr. Martel, Andy moved his knight without doing the little hook thing.
Andy: You don't have to do the little hook thing; that's optional.
Pete: Andy, uh… the knight has to do the "little hook thing".
Andy: Every time?
Pete: It's a privilege! No one else gets to make that move.

...oh wait, we're doing chess related quotes?
Not too many people know this, but Jack Nance, the actor who played Pete Martell was killed after becoming involved in a brawl at a doughnut shop in 1996.
He also had a brief but memorable cameo in the video for the heart-warming little ditty "Insitutionalized" by Suicidal Tendencies (one of many fondly cherished tunes from my misspent youth - that LP still makes it onto the old turntable every so often.)
As for the chess in Twin Peaks, apparently there was a Twin Peaks fanzine called "Wrapped in Plastic" (issue #4)http://spectrummagazines.bizland.co...
which contained the Windam Earle/Dale Cooper chess game with analysis by John Jacobs
...but I don't know if we'll ever get to see that...

Let me pull some strings, I can get a copy.
|Feb-09-06|| ||sleepkid: <mack> that would be interesting if you could get a copy, and post it here, or somewhere else appropriate, or even load it up as a PGN.|
I wonder if it was a game they constructed for the movie, or if it was based on an actual one? If so it could be added to someone's collection (does someone have one?) of games from movies such as:
Roesch vs W Schlage, 1910
Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960
|Feb-09-06|| ||delterp: Am I silly for saying that at the end of move 37 that this position reminds me somewhat of:|
Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971
|Feb-09-06|| ||pawn to QB4: No, you're far from silly; interesting link. In both games, complex position, lots of minor pieces flying around and Fischer knows just the exchanges to make so it's all suddenly simple and he's winning. I love the pairing that in the other game he plays NxB(d7)! and proves his bishop superior to the knight and here...the other way round! On the surface, he makes it look like anyone could do it, but in reality these are fine judgments.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||CoryLetain: Its looks like Fischer uses the letter 'b' for 'c' and 'f' as well.|

Favorite verse: "Mom... dad... get me a Pepsi. No! You're on drugs!"
|Jan-10-08|| ||ruelas007: (To Fischer) Hey nice writing, it looks like mine|
|Jan-10-08|| ||slomarko: Fischer's writting is unbelievibly ugly.|
|Aug-31-09|| ||laskereshevsky: In my judgement, considering his writting, He would had been a good Doctor....|

|Jan-13-10|| ||The Famous Chess Cat: <Maatalkko: Even if Fischer's competition wasn't as strong as super-GM's today, that's no fault of his. Fischer himself explained this when referring to Morphy. Someone interviewing Fischer asked him who the greatest player of the past was, and the first name Fischer gave was "Morphy". The interviewer asked him if Morphy's games were less impressive because his competition was fairly weak, and Fischer responded, "You can't hold [Morphy] responsible for his opponents' mistakes.">|
Thanks for the quote

Yes, the concept of indicating a file by which piece starts off on that file is one of the bases the descriptive notation is founded on. See the wikipedia link:
|Aug-29-10|| ||whiteshark: <offramp: The scoresheet is very interesting. ... Fischer did the heading in blue; it's possible he filled it out beforehand.>|
I don't think <he> filled it, but the organizers did.
|Aug-29-10|| ||TheFocus: Right. That in blue is not Bobby's handwriting.|
|Aug-29-10|| ||Lil Swine: i agree, if you compare that to the scoresheet from D. Byrne- Fischer you will see fischer writes cursivly while the one from the match with najdorf is written in print.|
|Aug-29-10|| ||Lil Swine: if you close enough at the bottom of the second sheet it looks like it says something in german|
|Aug-29-10|| ||Lil Swine: one of them appears to read zeit von schwarz|
|Aug-29-10|| ||Lil Swine: according to google translate it means "time of black", so the other one must be "time of white", however neither are filled|
|Aug-29-10|| ||Lil Swine: it says scach olympiad so this match took place in germany, however if it were written by officials it should be in german|
|Jun-17-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: see better size score sheet
|Jun-17-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: dirty handwriting|
|May-16-14|| ||sicilianhugefun: How can I not be so crazily in love with this website... It has the auto-play mode which allows me to watch the game without clicking the > (greater than sign) button on each move. The speed interval for each move is perfectly enough to understand the ideas behind each move that was made. I also love my iPad|
|Jul-27-14|| ||Ulhumbrus: 27 e5 opens lines in a position where White is at least two moves ahead of Black ahead in development|
After 27...de 28 Qxa8 Rxa8 29 fxe5 White's e5 pawn has fixed Black's f7 pawn without becoming vulnerable while his c pawn is passed, and with queens exchanged White's king is less exposed to attack. This suggests an alternative to 27...de eg 27...Bc6
In the position after 37...f6 White's pieces are three moves ahead in development of Black's piece and his c5 pawn is two moves ahead in development of Black's f6 pawn
