|May-24-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <fenno> Lol, thanks! (at least, I think it's a compliment)|
<refutor> I agree to disagree. No matter what we say, it's still comparing the incomparable. So I offer you a draw. Do you accept?
<square dance> I suggest that you desist too, it's obviously getting us nowhere.
After all, everybody's entitled to their own opinion. What's for sure, though, is that Jordan, Wilt and Mikan (<keypusher> mentioned him) are among the very best, the creme de la creme, and that's, I think, the only fact we could (and should) agree on.
|May-24-05|| ||square dance: <fenno> i think you underestimate my nba knowledge. ;-)|
|May-24-05|| ||fenno: Well, my own NBA knowledge rating is much below 1000 so my estimates are maybe arbitrary.|
|May-24-05|| ||Jaymthetactician: fenno: We want more. More!
Lasker? Nimzowitch? Reti? Sultan Khan?
Laskar 2300, Nimzowitch and Reti 2500, and Sultan Kahn around 2450
|May-24-05|| ||Jaymthetactician: On an estimation of my rating, I resigned when I was playing black against a 1750 OTB, the position was white pawn h2, white king f3, and black king at d7. I resigned, as white promote's no matter what, and I blundered by castling, moving the king to e7 centralizing after a bunch of exchanges would win for me, and Chess21 is inflated 300 point's, and I am 1700 on chess.ac and Queenalice.com (provisional) so I estimate myself to be around there, and in a couple of years maybe around 2000 if I keep studying the game.|
|May-24-05|| ||Jaymthetactician: Correction: white king at f4|
|May-24-05|| ||fenno: <Jaymthetactician> White:pawn h2, king f4, black (you) king e7.|
No matter who is to move in that position, you resigned in a drawn position. How is that possible?
|May-24-05|| ||Jaymthetactician: This was no draw! His king blocked my king, allowing the pawn to promote no matter what.|
|May-24-05|| ||hintza: That position is a draw. If it isn't a drawn position you must mean a different position.|
|May-24-05|| ||mang00neg: i think/hope jay was joking|
|May-24-05|| ||hintza: If I were you I'd be hoping, not thinking.|
|May-25-05|| ||Jaymthetactician: If it isn't a drawn position you must mean a different position.|
must be, I didnt record the moves past a certain point.
|Jun-01-05|| ||WMD: The plan 19.Rdh2 -> Rh7 + Rxg7 was very strong for White.|
|Dec-10-05|| ||James Demery: See what happens Bobby when you`re not a scaredy cat. I played him...why couldn`t you? - Spassky|
|Dec-16-05|| ||Jim Bartle: I know this discussion ended months ago, and well, it's not about chess, but I just saw it and....|
Oscar Robertson couldn't dribble with his left hand??? Right, and Garry Kasparov couldn't play the KID. How many people here saw him play with Cincinnati, not his final years with Milwaukee, when he had faded some? Greatest point guard of all time.
And Wilt: listen, he was a great, great player, even if the conditions of the game have changed that stats are hard to compare. OK, he got 20 rebounds a game, that's about like 12 or 14 today (fewer missed shots). And in the early 60s so little contact was allowed, and yes, the centers who guarded him were so much smaller, that he just got the ball and shot, no problem. First NBA game I ever saw he scored 61 and I just thought that was average...
|May-23-07|| ||Raginmund: wrong site... or wrong forum... I think the spot here it's basketball not chess...|
down kasparov,... up magic johnson :)
|Nov-26-07|| ||xeroxmachine: <Laskar 2300 and Reti 2500>First of all I think you mean Lask<e>r |
Overall record: Emanuel Lasker beat Richard Reti 4 to 0, with 3 draws.
search "Lasker reti"
|Apr-09-09|| ||vonKrolock: <33.♕xg6+> It seems that instead of this last move, ♔asparov had the fantastic 33.♘d5!!, that would afford him at least a deserved draw in this game - the idea is: ♖ or ♙ take the ♘, then ♖xf8+ with a perpetual - (ps: my computer is saying that the best rejoinder for Spassky is 33...♔d7!!!, with a better endgame following the fireworks )|
|Sep-04-11|| ||DrMAL: Kasparov mentions in his video "My Story" regret for running low on time during this, the only game he lost during his stellar performance in this tournament (see Kasparov vs Portisch, 1983 for a great example). Indeed, on move 16 he was already significantly ahead. 16.Rd2! then 17.Ng1! 18.Nf3! was a great plan. But the follow-through 19.Rdh2! was missed (probably decisive). Spassky defended brilliantly as well. After 22...Nc6! it seemed the moment for Kasparov's attack was gone (23.Re1). 33.Nd5 should have held the ongoing draw but out of time he played 33.Qxg6+?! probably losing then his flag fell.|
|Feb-13-12|| ||screwdriver: Another game that should've been played further.|
|Feb-13-12|| ||Shams: <Another game that should've been played further.>|
As is explained right before your post, Kasparov lost on time here.
|Oct-27-12|| ||HeMateMe: Exciting game. The conclusion would have been interesting.|
|Oct-27-12|| ||RookFile: Kasparov didn't manage his time here, of course. There was a lot more game to be played here.|
|Sep-29-13|| ||grasser: The game annotated:
|Sep-21-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: <Jaymthetactician: Well, today's players overall would be rated higher, I estimate Morphy would be around 2100, Staunton around 1700, Zuckertort and Steinitz around 2250, Capablanca around 2500 Saint Amant around 1400, Greco around 1400 Damiano and Poleria around 1200, and so on.>|
And these estimates are worthy every penny I paid for them :)
