|Dec-05-03|| ||PinkPanther: Gosh, just look how much the theory on the Sveshnikov Sicilian has changed. |
|Jul-16-04|| ||apple head: No Soltis tryed to crack fischer with it but it oviously failed! |
|Jul-14-05|| ||aw1988: I'm suprised no one has answered Bc4 with the more accurate Ra7 yet.|
|Sep-08-05|| ||RookFile: This ...Ra7 idea is really interesting. Do you play such a move against Bobby Fischer? But, I can find no flaw in it, I think after 10... Ra7 white plays 11. Bd5 and black goes .... Nd4.|
|Aug-02-08|| ||jerseybob: This is the second of the two games Fischer and Soltis played that day, but incredibly the score of the first seems to have been lost. In a picture taken of them in play, we can see it was a Najdorf Sozin. Reportedly Soltis as white got the advantage and actually won Fischer's Queen but eventually lost. Is there any score of this game floating around?|

Here is the picture:
|Aug-28-10|| ||jerseybob: GrahamClayton: Thanks, but I already have the picture. What I want is the score, and I can't believe that Soltis isn't able to reconstruct it.|
|Jan-06-11|| ||wordfunph: <jerseybob> no score available, they were playing almost too fast for the spectators to follow.|
twas the game where Soltis resigned and said to a New York Times reporter that he knew he would lose even though he had a winning position..
|May-30-11|| ||jerseybob: To beat this dead horse just a little more...Fischer was reportedly able back in the early '70s to reconstruct blitz games he'd played over a decade before during his visit to Moscow in 1958. This reportedly occurred during a conversation with one of the Soviets he'd played then, possibly Krogius. So what's the big deal about somebody getting this score correct right after it was played.? I bet even now, Soltis could at least partially reconstruct it.|
|Sep-11-12|| ||Helios727: Why not continue with 25... h6 ? Did Soltis lose on time?|
|Sep-12-12|| ||Helios727: Never mind. 26. gxf7+ would follow.|
|Nov-23-12|| ||HeMateMe: You don't hear much about Soltis on this site. He has written about 100 chess books, some of them very good.|
Here, he plays a guy named Bob.

"Pawn Structure Chess" is hands down his best, among those I've seen. A superb instructional book.
|Nov-23-12|| ||Atking: <GrahamClayton:> Seeing the picture the game might be something like : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bc4 e6 7.Bb3 b5 8.0-0 Be7 9.Qf3 Qd7!? 10.a3 Bb7 Soltis playing the Sozin against Fischer's favorite Najdorf. 9...Qc7 is usual. 9...Qb6 sometime but I had never seen 9...Qd7.|
|Dec-24-12|| ||jerseybob: Atking: I've looked at this picture countless times and never noticed it's a knight on a2, not a pawn! So the sequence ...(black)b5 (white)a4,(black)b4 (white)Na2 must've occured. I doubt if Soltis played a3; that move is usually played to ensure the knight DOESN'T have to move.|
