|Aug-29-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: Lol glad it was cleared up Miles said that not Seirwan. Easy for me to mix up quotes.|
It amazes me how good the best players were without a single computer helping. Of course they had seconds working for them but it is so much easier now!
|Aug-29-15|| ||TheFocus: <Many today would cite that as irrefutable evidence that Fischer was cheating.>|
I have made a phone call to <AJ> to begin an investigation.
If Fischer is proven to have cheated, <AJ> Will be able to prove it. Look how he shamed Nakamura, who will forever be known as <The Man Who Cheated AJ>.
Chess is a tough world to play in.
|Sep-16-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: <20. e4!> This hero pawn just demolishes Black's proud center.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||Petrosianic: Of course, it helps if Black obligingly plays 20...d4.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||RookFile: Everything is obvious to us 43 years later. I don't think much was obvious when the game was played.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||diceman: <Petrosianic: Of course, it helps if Black obligingly plays 20...d4.>|
What is it about the people who lost to Fischer,
...they always seemed to make mistakes.
|Sep-17-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: LOL I don't think Black "obligingly" played d4...no matter what, Whites e4 push makes its presence felt.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||AylerKupp: <diceman> Of course. How can you lose if you don't make mistakes? The same for Fischer, the only time he lost was when he made mistakes.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||WannaBe: Bobby doesn't make mistakes, he merely didn't calculate more correcter than his opponent. =))|
|Sep-17-15|| ||Petrosianic: The whole strategy of hanging pawns is that if you have them you want to maintain them abreast, if you're fighting them, you want to make one advance, where they become weaker. Advancing one without being forced to seems pretty obliging, doesn't it?|
|Sep-17-15|| ||unferth: what would you suggest instead?|
|Sep-17-15|| ||drleper: It seems the problem with 20...d4 is giving away control of c4 which makes the light squared bishop even stronger. The computer's choice of 20...Nf6 looks like a better alternative, then black can maintain his hanging central pawns, and maybe make some counterplay with the half-open b file, depending on how white goes.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||diceman: <AylerKupp: <diceman> Of course. How can you lose if you don't make mistakes?>|
I was being sarcastic.
Petrosianic hates Fischer so of course he faults Spassky for making a mistake.
...like, if Spassky could play, we may have had a game.
So I was like:
<What is it about the people who lost to Fischer,

|Sep-17-15|| ||unferth: <drleper: The computer's choice of 20...Nf6 looks like a better alternative, then black can maintain his hanging central pawns>
can he, though? after exd5 exd5, if white continues with Bf3, Rd1 etc., doesn't black have to tie himself in knots to avoid the advance?|
|Sep-17-15|| ||perfidious: <AK....One time one of my subordinates indicated that he liked my management style. I said: "Management is not that difficult. In any situation I ask myself, 'What would my boss do?' and then do the opposite."|
Unfortunately my boss heard me ...>
Did he, perchance, soon afterwards become your former boss?
|Sep-17-15|| ||Petrosianic: Probably 20... Nf6 21. e5 Nd7 22. f4. White is still better but Black's hanging in.|
I just had a look at it in Fritz. It prefers moves like c4, dxe4, or Rc6, but I don't believe in any of them. (the problems with them go beyond the program's horizon). Nf6 seems most in the spirit of the variation.
|Sep-18-15|| ||RookFile: After Petrosianic's hated 20....d4, as played, Spassky had an opportunity to play 22.... Nb6! and stay in the game. Kasparov made this point, as I recall.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||AylerKupp: <perfidious> He actually took it quite well and laughed about it, saying something along the lines of "That's nice ...". We liked each other. He did eventually become my former boss but it was for a different reason and it was my doing, not his.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: How about <20. ...Nf6 21. Qh3!?>|
|Dec-26-15|| ||chancho: Scene from Pawn Sacrifice Game # 6:
|Dec-27-15|| ||Joshka: Error after error in this film, his arrest was May 26th, 1981.|
|Jan-02-16|| ||piltdown man: Don't think Bobby would be too pleased about being included in the "Greatest Jewish players" list.|
|Jan-02-16|| ||MissScarlett: Nor Spassky.|
|Jan-02-16|| ||HeMateMe: I can play over this game once a year and never get tired of it.|
|Jan-02-16|| ||john barleycorn: <HeMateMe> yes, an exceptional game. here is a game compilation for the remaining 364 days of the year:|
