|Feb-07-10|| ||Boomie: General comments about Fischer belong on his player page. The game pages are for comments about the game.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||Damianx: listen to Kasperov sometime he says some say me some say Fisher he doesn,t even consider any of the rest|
|Jan-16-11|| ||fischerrules: Fischer is,in my opinion,the second best of all time after Capablanca(Fischer had said this once). As a matter of fact he would have crushed Karpov.|
|Feb-08-11|| ||Sniffles: I wonder how it would have turned out if Fischer and Tal had squared off like the great Fischer Spassky encounter. I'd guess at Tal heading into a nervous decline by game 20.|
Regarding AS. Purely academic. Provide the clinical tests that determined the condition. Stress and anxiety can cause a galaxy of aberrant behavioral patterns. Getting the shaft by ones own government for pursuing the major passion of your life is more than enough to make a person act erratic.
|Feb-08-11|| ||NARC: If Fischer saw 13. Rb1 or 13. Nb5 he must have had access to Rybka ;-)|
|Apr-23-11|| ||Sho: A lot of top chess players seem to have had a mental illness. The more I learn about historical players, the more examples I find. |
I'm not saying a cause and effect with chess exists but chess does seem to have higher rates than other sports.
|Apr-23-11|| ||Amulet: I've been reading opinion about how Fischer became a broken man, lonely and bitter in his old age 'till his death.|
Now I am thinking what brought about this to Fischer and the likes?
Did Fischer belong a type of personality pattern that is vulnerable to getting broken simply because he says black when he believed its black, and white when white, with nothing in between. In short, he is a man of principle. I say this because I know of people who will say white or black not because they see them as such, but because of `convenience', they do not want to go against the current. A man of principle will never do that, it's against their very core.? They will stick to their belief no matter what.
Of course we know that he got harassed by the those most vocal and articulate, using all influence at their disposal, until they got and led him to become bitter and felt wronged till his last day.
And why do these people do that to Fischer and the likes. Is it because they are threatened in a way so they they have to attack/chastise him?, or is it a predatory tendency to attack what they perceived as the common prey.
Then say he's a fool.
But then, who is the real fool?
|Jul-15-11|| ||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.|
|Jul-15-11|| ||diceman: <DarthStapler: Tal would have won if he was in better health when this game was played>|
He probably would have won if Fischer was 15 when this game was played.
It’s a shame we cant give all Fischer’s opponents “winning” conditions.
Interesting that “poor health” Tal finished number two.
|Jul-15-11|| ||diceman: <talisman: does anyone know the clinical name for fischer's disorder?>|
“Ahead Of Your Time At The Chessboard” disorder, causes extreme hatred, anger, anxiety, in others.
Symptoms: Losses to Fischer.
Treatment: Extensive chess study
Cure: Victory over Fischer
|Jul-15-11|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: <talisman: does anyone know the clinical name for fischer's disorder?>|
|Jul-15-11|| ||Check It Out: <GSM> I don't trust any of those psychiatric disorders. Or doctors. Or chess kibitzers for that matter. Leave me alone.|
|Jul-15-11|| ||HeMateMe: I don't believe in good moves. I believe in Hannibal Lecter.|
|Jul-15-11|| ||TheFocus: I don't believe in good moves. I believe in good beer.|
|Jul-15-11|| ||JoergWalter: <TheFocus: I don't believe in good moves. I believe in good beer.>
Stop believing - start drinking.
<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.)
|Jul-16-11|| ||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?!?!|
|Jul-16-11|| ||diceman: <TheFocus: I don't believe in good moves. I believe in good beer.>|
I don't believe in good moves. I believe in the best move.
|Jul-16-11|| ||BobCrisp: I believe in good movies. Hold the popcorn!|
|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.
|Jul-16-11|| ||andrewjsacks: I believe in good moves, good beer, good bars, and good blondes.|
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?|
|Jul-16-11|| ||OhioChessFan: <NARC: If Fischer saw 13. Rb1 or 13. Nb5 he must have had access to Rybka>|
<dice: In the old days Fischer was Rybka. >
Rybka stole Fischer's source code.
