|Jan-02-17|| ||RookFile: Yep. Perfectly logical too - let's open the position for the two bishops and all. ...Ng6 was terrific by Fischer.|
|Jan-03-17|| ||ZonszeinP: Yes!
Strong and (I understand) played almost instantly
|Mar-30-17|| ||Vyrak: Would you like to tell me, an ignorant, why is Ba4 winning|
|Mar-31-17|| ||ZZpatzer: <Vyrak> if Qxa4, then 28...Qxe4 and mate soon after. if 28. Qd2, then 28...Bxd1 29. Qxd1 Qxe4 29. Qd2 Nd3 with -5.15 according to Shredder|
|Apr-09-17|| ||ZonszeinP: This game is a typical example in this match,
That Spassky was not playing at his normal level
|Aug-28-17|| ||seriyvolk911: What if were 28.Bh5?|
|Aug-28-17|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: <seriyvolk911: What if were 28.Bh5?> 28..Bxc2 29 Bxg6 Nxg6 and black is a piece ahead.|
|Sep-30-17|| ||ewan14: 1977 - How did Korchnoi start the battle against Spassky before a game was played ?|
|Jul-07-18|| ||Justin796: In my eyes Fischer was not a true champion...just a fluke that happened when Spassky gave in to pressure, antics, and Fischer's childlike demands. If you never defended your championship, you are not a true champion!|
|Jul-07-18|| ||ZonszeinP: Whereas Spassky, Tal, Korchnoi, Petrosian and others kept playing up to the last breath|
|Jul-07-18|| ||offramp: <ZonszeinP: Whereas Spassky, Tal, Korchnoi, Petrosian and others kept playing up to the last breath>|
|Jul-08-18|| ||ZonszeinP: And hopefully for a long time.
But, he is not playing anymore
|Jul-27-18|| ||Albion 1959: The shortest game of this celebrated match. Curious as to why Spassky on his 4th move played Nf3 instead of his pet move Bg5? He had a lot success with this, but for some reason could not bring himself to use it at Reykjavik. This game is almost akin to game three, Spassky playing white, rooks are exchanged as he drifts into a passive position. Then Fischer hurls a thunderbolt to force Spassky to resign! On move 26, could Spassky have not done better with Qf3+ or even g3, to prevent Nf4? As for Qc2??, even a cheap computer would have played Bxa4! And yet the World Champion missed it! Had he played Qb1 instead, it is evident that Fischer stands better, but just exactly how would he have won? Spassky has work to do in order to get the draw, but the consensus is that black is winning, but I don't believe it is that straight forward, or am I missing something?|
|Aug-05-18|| ||ZonszeinP: Spassky's worse game ever.
And...in a World Championship
He probably felt "guilty" for having won a point without a fight on the 2nd game
That was the decisive game of this match.
|Aug-05-18|| ||RookFile: I don't think 11. f4 is a guilty move. It is a sign of ambition, Spassky was hoping for a crushing victory.|
|Aug-06-18|| ||Amarande: 28 Qb1 Bxd1 29 Qxd1 Qxe4 and now -
A. 30 Qf3 Qxe1+ and wins bluntly.
B. 30 Qd2 Qe2, forces the exchange of Queens and Black wins the ending easily.
C. (perhaps my favorite!) 30 Kf2 Qxg2+ 31 Ke3 a4!! White is completely helpless!

Prohibition has been repealed!
|Nov-22-18|| ||Pawn Slayer: @Justin796: "In my eyes Fischer was not a true champion"|
And what makes you think that anyone actually gives a pig's belch what your opinion is?
Methinks thou overestimateth thine own importance.
|Nov-22-18|| ||perfidious: <Justin> has never got over what he views as a betrayal by his hero Fischer, so slags the great man at every turn. He is, moreover, a pompous ass.|
|Nov-22-18|| ||Violin sonata: In this match the g6 squares was nicknamed the "mysterious squares", because Bobby put the pieces there a number of times successfully whether it was the knight or the queens. Correct me if i am wrong.|
|Nov-22-18|| ||morfishine: Supposedly, Spassky jumped out of his chair when Fischer played <27...Bxa4>. What a sight that must've been|
|Nov-22-18|| ||FSR: Your pun made me laugh, <HeMateMe>. Congrats.|
|Nov-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: Bob, the cold war warrior had the last laugh, huh?|
27...Bxa4 has to be the most amazing, surprise move ever in a WC game.
|Nov-22-18|| ||Check It Out: Yeah, I laughed at the pun too. I read it in a Trump voice.|
|Nov-22-18|| ||Ron: So this site has been taken over by Neo-con war mongers? Booo.|
