  Check It Out: <GSM> I don't trust any of those psychiatric disorders. Or doctors. Or chess kibitzers for that matter. Leave me alone.

<Chess maestro Bobby Fischer has cited a lack of alcohol as one of the factors making him ill behind bars at the East Japan Immigration Bureau Detention Center in Ushiku, Ibaraki Prefecture.

"I can't get any alcohol in here, which I think is also bad for my health. I say that quite seriously. I think alcohol in moderation is very good for your body. Alcohol in moderation is very good for your health. It has a cleansing effect on your body, an antiseptic effect. It has many benefits. It's good for your heart and so on," Fischer told Radio DZRH in the Philippines in the second of two separate interviews given on New Year's Eve and Jan. 17 and listed on the Internet overnight. "They don't allow alcohol, but they allow cigarettes. And they give the people cigarettes, tax-free. So the people are smoking like chimneys in here." >

Jul-15-11  Petrosianic: "And cigarettes are good for you too!"

(Funny, I thought it was beans that were good for your heart.)

  diceman: <NARC: If Fischer saw 13. Rb1 or 13. Nb5 he must have had access to Rybka>

In the old days Fischer was Rybka.

Jul-16-11  JoergWalter: <petrosianic> what is good and what is bad and in what quantities - I absolutely don't know. at least we keep the health debate going?!?!

I don't believe in good moves. I believe in the best move.

Jul-16-11  Shams: <Funny, I thought it was beans that were good for your heart.>

No, it's beans that are good for your <farts>. This is the danger of a pedagogy based around rhyming.

Jul-16-11  Petrosianic: <Bobby Fischer has cited a lack of alcohol as one of the factors making him ill behind bars>

How can that be? There's plenty of alcohol behind bars.

Ohhhh! THOSE kind of bars! Sorry. Got it now.

As TheFocus, and HeMateMe, I try to have my priorities in the right place(s).

Jul-16-11  Shams: <andrewjsacks> You can keep the "good" blondes, I'll take their sisters, and we can double, how's that?

Rybka stole Fischer's source code.

  andrewjsacks: OK. OK. Deal, Shams.
Jul-17-11  JoergWalter: <OhioChessFan><Rybka stole Fischer's source code> To prove it, do we have to exhume the maestro a second time?

  TheFocus: <JNDrummond>< Fischer childhood known events pre-10 y.o.: mother used to chase him around the apt WITH A BUTCHER KNIFE screaming she was going to kill him; locked him out of the apt and told him she would never let him in, while he was crying and banging on the door. Undoubtedly tip of the iceberg. enough to cause massive mental illness. Poor Bobby, finally driven totally bonkers by the demons forced inside him.>

This is pure and total BS.

  Penguincw: Up two pawns, opposite coloured bishop not enough to hold the draw. One pawn, maybe.

  Kent Swearingen: Given his note to 19...b6, it is odd that Fischer said nothing about 18...Nb5. Instead, 18...b6 saves the c pawn, equalizing. Discovered attacks on the a8 Rook are stymied by Bd5.
Jul-19-17  sudoplatov: Opposite colored Bishops tend to be drawish on their own. With other pieces, they tend to favor an attacker. In this game, there are Rooks on each side so the aggressor (Fischer of the Extra Pawns) has a big advantage.
