Or maybe he's just cheap. I heard that donations to his web-site have fallen off lately. Sad, really. I mean, those award-winning web pages and YouTube videos should have money funneling in, at least enough to pay for a Premium Membership here.
It's getting harder and harder for a LifeMaster to make a living. Perhaps we should run a telethon to raise some money for him?
Anyone got change for a nickel?

|Jul-26-12|| ||harrylime: I still think <JoergWalter> is visiting the wrong sites.|
|Jul-26-12|| ||harrylime: Blitz game and Fischer certainly did blitz Korchnoi. |
Only Fischer can advance chess so far in ideas thru a blitz game....
|Jul-26-12|| ||TheFocus: <JoergWalter> I love the poem. It really fits <AJ> to a T.|
I wish I had written it.
|Jul-26-12|| ||I play the Fred: <Nikolai>, if you can spare the time, please drop into my forum. I have questions for you which shouldn't take up space here.|
|Jul-26-12|| ||TheFocus: <Fred> Be careful what you ask for...|
But I may have to be discreet in some of my answers.

There's no way he'd ever let his premium membership expire. Someone so vain and egotistical couldn't live without having his portrait attached to his posts.
|Oct-23-12|| ||blitzpatzer: Nh8..Nf7..Ng5..Nxh3.. boom!|
|Nov-30-12|| ||Olsonist: The black queen never moves and the knight goes on an odyssey! This game is just soo much fun.|
Seven moves: Nc6 Ne7 Ng6 Nh8 Nf7 Ng5 Nxh3
By the time it gets sac'd on move 28, a quarter of Black's moves are by that Knight.
|Feb-04-15|| ||GrahamClayton: Another game where Black wins in 30 moves without moving his Queen:|
Maroczy vs Lasker, 1924
|Jun-24-15|| ||Sniffles: Consider this. At 15... Rf6 Fischer saw that he could control that side of the board. All he needed was to advance his pawn on g5 to take control.|
At 17...Rg6 he knew he had complete control and had calculated the various moves he would have to put his knights through.
At 19... Pg4 he had won the game. If Korchnoi had been awake he would have resigned at that point. As Fischer noted 21 Rf3 was weird and the end of the game.
The irony came in at 21...Rh6. In appearance, a superficial feint. In actuality, Fischer was just giving the second knight room to move. Knights and Rook in a complex dance.
|Oct-15-15|| ||ToTheDeath: Much was made of the byzantine Knight manuever g6-h8-f7-g5 but in fact the more obvious sortie 24...Nh4! was also strong: 25.Rd3 Nxg2! 26.Kxg2 Qe8 and White is going to have trouble defending e4 and h3, not to mention his king.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||HeMateMe: geez, classic Bob. Korchnoi is a spectator after move 20. Zero counter play on the queenside, and the center can't be opened.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||stoy: This was a blitz game!|
|Oct-16-15|| ||HeMateMe: Fischer played a lotta blitz in 1970.|
|Oct-16-15|| ||RookFile: This game was over before it started. It's an example of Fischer's outstanding prep.|
|Oct-16-15|| ||harrylime: To be honest Fischer was so far ahead back then it's not true.|
|Jun-12-16|| ||The Boomerang: "To be honest Fischer was so far ahead back then it's not true"|
Why did it take so long for Fischer to win the world championship of he was so far ahead? Unlike Kasparov or Carlsen.
|Nov-30-16|| ||Eusebius: <The Boomerang>
According to Fischer the Russians cheated...|
|Jun-10-17|| ||The Boomerang: "The Boomerang> According to Fischer the Russians cheated..."|
Yeah and according to Fischer all Kasparov vs Karpov games were pre arranged...
He's opinion is about as trustworthy as Donald Trump.
|Jun-10-17|| ||The Boomerang: Carlsen would wipe the floor with Fischer in blitz. 2944 rating!!!!|
|Jun-10-17|| ||HeMateMe: ...unless of course Fischer's 2800 rating would be worth 3050, in today's dollars...|
|Mar-31-18|| ||Justin796: Korchnoi certainly got blitzed, and being a Saturday night, I shall get blitzed as well.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||Olsonist: A knight on the rim is looking dim.
But this knight in the corner is looking ornery.
