|Apr-16-09|| ||Riverbeast: I heard this was Bobby playing in this simul in disguise...he was wearing glasses with the fake big nose and mustache.|
When they asked if he was Bobby, he said "Naaah...My name's Jespa"!
|Jun-25-09|| ||TheFocus: Actually, this was an exhibition where Reshevsky played blindfold 10 seconds a move against ten players who had sight of the board. Reshevsky won 6 and lost 4. This was the first game between Reshevsky and Fischer, played before the Rosenwald Tournament.|
|May-13-11|| ||TheFocus: Actually, <TheFocus>, it was played after the Rosenwald Tournament.|
|Jul-11-11|| ||Benzol: So this is really Bobby not Jesper Fischer ?|
|Jul-11-11|| ||Petrosianic: <Actually, <TheFocus>, it was played after the Rosenwald Tournament.>|
Well, after Rosenwald '56, before Rosenwald '57. But not their first game together, no.
|Jul-11-11|| ||TheFocus: Right. Reshevsky won their first game in Rosenwald Cup '56, then Fischer beat him in this game, before RC '57.|
Would you believe this was my very first post?
And I made a mistake in it?
Some Fischer expert I turned out to be.
<Benzol> It's Bobby.
|Jul-11-11|| ||Petrosianic: Opening night jitters. Still not as bad as Petrosian in that first game with Botvinnik.|
Speaking of Rosenwald, I've never heard the circumstances behind how the US Championship ceased to be a Lessing J. Rosenwald tournament. It wasn't his death. Rosenwald lived until 1979, but the last "US Championship and Lessing J. Rosenwald Tournament" was in 1969.
|Jul-11-11|| ||TheFocus: I never heard either.
Maybe he no longer sponsored the tournament?
