|Feb-28-07|| ||piroflip: amazing aggression by Bobby with black.|
|Aug-08-09|| ||technical draw: Amazing king moves by Fischer. This is a really good game without a lot of comments. Lombardy is no slouch and offers a good fight but Fischer, well, Fischer was just impossible to beat.|
|Aug-08-09|| ||parisattack: Lombardy never made 2600 but I suspect in his prime he could run with any 2700 player today.|

|Aug-08-09|| ||technical draw: <parisattack> Lombardy has wins against world class players like Korchnoi, Polugaevsky, Ljubojevic, Timman and Reshevsky, so I agree with your statement.|

Grazi! Interesting style he had. Hypermodern twist but could also be quite agressive. My moniker is after an article he wrote in Chess Review in 1968 on the system for White with g3, Bg2, f4, Nh3, Nf2...

- Bobby Fischer (when Lombardy offered his hand of resignation)
|Jan-10-13|| ||Garech: Beautiful game from Fischer; definitely GOTD material.|
|Jan-11-13|| ||CapablancaFan: When I saw 23...h3 I thought to myself oh oh! (That's when I knew Lombardy was finished)|
|Jan-11-13|| ||RookFile: Looking at the final diagram, white's pieces are not badly placed, with the exception of the horse grazing at b7 while the kingside burns down.|

In the late 1970s, when Lombardy was ~2530, a rating of 2600 was not at all easy to attain, and was the province of super GMs, not the dime-a-dozen club that figure has become in relative terms in today's market.
The one time I met Lombardy at the board, it began 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nc6 (which I always preferred to 2....Nf6) 3.Nc3 Nf6 and led to a positional struggle. He had an interesting, original style of play.
If I had the game score, I would send it on. Maybe one day I will find it, along with some other worthwhile games.

Yes. But also the movements of his two rooks are very unusual.
