|Dec-08-13|| ||parisattack: Just different perspective, I suppose.
"Chess is a sea..."
|Dec-08-13|| ||tamar: For me, I think that it adds to the game's charm to see in actual variations that Fischer had, as he claimed, an advantage. So thanks,
<RandomVisitor>. Gull and Houdini concur, but the advantage does not appear to be decisive. |
That said, if we only had computer notes for this game, and had to lose Tal's insouciant concern more for his cup of coffee than killer moves, we would miss out on the personality battle that was taking place.
|Dec-09-13|| ||kevin86: Sparkling game by Tal-or is it just the usual?|
|Dec-09-13|| ||AylerKupp: <<playground player> As long as human beings let computers teach them how to play chess, we shall not see Tal's like again.>|
You mean if computers teach humans to play a game like this one: Rybka vs Houdini, 2011? Get over your anti-computer bias and misconceptions; computers are quite capable of playing Tal-like games, only with greater accuracy. We would do very well to learn how to play like that.
|Dec-09-13|| ||penarol: <AylerKupp> In the game you mention, Tal would have never played 14.Nxh7...|
|Dec-09-13|| ||playground player: <AylerKupp> If I can't be prejudiced against computers, what am I still free to be prejudiced against? It's a personal thing.|
I grant you, the game you posted is delightful--I never would've guessed machines had anything to do with it. But how am I supposed to drum up any rooting interest?
<parisattack> Maybe we can be coelocanths, and still be around after a lot of newfangled life forms are long-since fossilized.
<RandomVisitor> Although I think of you as one of the really big "computer guys" on this site, I can't hold it against you.
In one of the first CG consultation games a few years ago, in which we were allowed to let computers pick our moves, I suggested a move that ran counter to the majority computer analysis--and you were open-minded enough to support it, even though the machines said no. I think we wound up being a minority of two.
I will always appreciate that.

It may be our only hope! Wait it out for the computers to have a final shoot-it-out, be waiting with our MCOs in-hand.
|Dec-09-13|| ||tamar: <parisattack> Or MCO's in caudal fins while doing a headstand. http://www.dinofish.com/|
|Dec-09-13|| ||playground player: <tamar> Cool coelacanth video!|

Yes, that's us BC chess players! We all play the French since Evans said we are a 'breed apart.'

I think we should look to chess to help us develop skills for life & understanding the world, but not for chess itself.
People use computers to learn chess. They often use computers to play chess. After games with other people or to examine historical games they use computers to analyze chess. Whether we like it or not, this is a growing trend.
At the same time, chess is not growing in popularity. The game itself, as a game, is slowly moving towards becoming one of the great lost arts.
However, if we can adhere to the study of chess & transpose it's principles to life, to help us understand our many relationships, understand politics, understand businesses, understand societies, then just as we use tools to understand chess we can use chess as a tool to understand life.
Thus mastering chess should not be our Endgame. Mastering chess should be our Opening.
|Oct-29-14|| ||Rookiepawn: <...if Fischer was right in his claim that he had the better position against Tal in all 4 losses.>|
The data may well be correct, but imho it means not so much. Tal may claim the same (he was also superior at some point of the game). Besides, he won.

Maybe this position shows what I think is some kind of strategic principle (or whatever): some flank attacks, rather than being "vertical" (attack through the files), are kind of "triangular" clashing on the h1-a8 long diagonal, pushing WQ's flank agaist BK's flank.
I guess White's control of f5 - d6 - e7 forces the awkward BQ's step back to g5 and illustrates the point.
|Nov-19-14|| ||Rookiepawn: f5 - e6 - d7, I meant...|
|Mar-02-17|| ||Joker2048: Tal outplayed Fischer here ...
|Mar-02-17|| ||Petrosianic: No, only 1-0 in this game.|
|May-07-17|| ||Joker2048: Yes you'r right petrosianic ..
I mean in the last 4-0 not in this game..
This is just the beginning of the end
|Jun-29-17|| ||Johnnysaysthankyou: I'd just like to point out that none of the lines in this game are unsound. There isn't even a "real sacrifice" in this game. Tal's play may be, as they say, "extra as @#$%" but its sheer whimsy and pure disregard for Fischer's play(Its like Tal is mocking him) doesn't make it unsound.|
|Jun-29-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I like how Tal took Petrosian's famous KID Killer 7.d5 and made it his own.|
|Jun-29-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Coincedentally, two other champs are playing the KID right now, Komodo vs Stockfish, Black to move:|

|Oct-27-17|| ||Kcb1990: Ok nice game
|Oct-28-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Love the pun!|
|Oct-28-17|| ||HeMateMe: a great game, always worth another look.|
|Apr-18-18|| ||Toribio3: Tal is a gifted human being. He demolished Fischer in this simple killing style.|
|May-27-19|| ||mosheach: After 27...f3, 28...Be5 looks like a mating attack for black, threatening the sacrifice on g3|
