|Jun-29-12|| ||RMKvdS: Nice video <kingcrusher>.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||Nightsurfer: You're right, <chaamjamal>, I do agree with you: <"eerie">, that is the right way to describe that very strange event of second coming in 2008, namely during the rather incredible game R Gralla vs S Stojanovic, 2008 - 150 (!!) years after this game here <Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, Paris 1858>!|
|Nov-02-12|| ||perfidious: <FSR: ....Even better is 1.d4 d6 2.c4 (arguably a mistake!) e5!, which actually gives Black a plus score, <especially> if White trades queens....>|
At Philadelphia 1991, Gennadi Zaitshik played 1.d4 d6 against me (the only time I faced 1....d6), but after 2.c4, we transposed into a Saemisch KID.
If I were to ever to reach the position after 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5, my likely response would be 3.Nc3 with transposition into a variation normally reached via 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 d6 3.d4. Not sure how much this really offers White, though surely there are improvements for him upon this smashing victory by someone who wasn't half bad as an attacker: Huebner vs Kasparov, 1985.
|Nov-02-12|| ||perfidious: <FSR: <Domdaniel> If one likes the French, or 1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5!?, 1.d4 e6 is a good choice....>|
From time to time I played this for Black and even used the Kangaroo once against a booked-up 2100 player who was solid-anything to get him out of his preparation.
<....I usually respond with 2.c4 as White, but am annoyed when I see 2...f5, since I'd rather play something else against the Dutch....>
In the early days I used to play the same way, but later switched to 2.e4, though by then, the French had become one of my mainstays as Black. No-one ever played 1.d4 e6 2.e4 c5, though.
<....I'm not overjoyed to play 2.Nf3, either, which rules out lines like the QG Exchange Variation with Nge2 and the Marshall Gambit, 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.e4!?>
Never cared for the idea 1.d4 e6 2.Nf3 myself, because I also favoured the Exchange QGD, though I was known to play the classical lines sometimes after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5. Didn't always want to allow the Nimzo.

|Jan-17-13|| ||Nightsurfer: Now - apart from that case of nearly replaying that brilliancy <Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard (1858)> in R Gralla vs S Stojanovic, 2008 - one more case of more or less replaying <Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard (1858)> has happened in R Schnelle vs H Niemoeller, 2001 ... at least until Black move no. 14 when Black tries the new riposte <14. ... Qb4>, though that has not helped anyway.|
|Feb-25-13|| ||Conrad93: This game looks like something that would be played on ICC.|
|Jun-17-13|| ||Snehalshekatkar: One of the greatest games of all time for me!! Salute Mr. Morphy!!|
|Jun-17-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Amusingly, I've played the white side of this game not once but several times in blitz against the late Don Gardiner, who had a fatal fondness for 3. ...Bg4 in the Philidor.|
As <Nightsurfer> says, most of Black's play in this game is naïvely plausible. To anyone who hasn't seen this game, it is even quite logical: All of Black's moves have a purpose, although they are made in what, *because* of this game, we know for a lost cause.
|Aug-03-13|| ||BlackFront: <Bobby Fischer annotates Paul Morphy>|
The two Serbian simul games that Fischer mentions went:
<1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Bg4 4.dxe5 Bxf3 5.Qxf3 dxe5 6.Bc4 Qf6 7.Qb3 b6 8.Nc3 c6 9.Bg5 Qg6 10.Rd1 Be7 11.Bxe7 Nxe7 12.Bxf7+ Qxf7 13.Rd8+ Kxd8 14.Qxf7>

Bobby Fisher annotates this game, this CB version has a java-script re-play board, so that you can see all of the lines that Fischer was looking at. (You can also download the PGN version of the analysis.)

My video on this game.
|Oct-18-13|| ||offramp: This could be called "Philidor Defence Norma Variation."|
|Oct-18-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I found the Fischer video to be thrilling!!! [I had known that Bobby Fischer had analyzed this game (for TV) many years ago, but I was told that the footage no longer existed, and that it had been lost over time.]|
|Oct-18-13|| ||Joshka: Yes, a real gem to see, although, with all the reports about memorizing game after game, I found it quite interesting that Bobby kept on looking at the paper to see what the moves were? We've read where Bobby memorized hundreds of games, and even some insignificant at that. So a game like this where even I (average patzer) could memorize, finds Bobby constantly looking at notes.|

Probably some mix of reflex/public shyness.
(he looks at the sheet for, 1...e5, and 2. Nf3.
|Oct-18-13|| ||RookFile: I think diceman has the right explanation. There are some effective public speakers who type out their whole speech and look at it, even though they are quite capable of speaking without notes.|
|Oct-18-13|| ||offramp: Performance poets almost always have a book in their hands, even though they have memorized the poems. It looks better and it creates something for their hands to do - like George Burns's unlit cigar.|
|Oct-21-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Fischer obviously knew the game, I think that he had notes because he was on TV, and did not want to make a mistake ... in his early years, he often seemed very shy.|
|Oct-21-13|| ||Joshka: <Life Master AJ> <RookFile> <offramp> Hey thanks for your thoughts. Guess with someone like Bobby having something memorized is no big deal, since his mind is able to almost memorize at sight. I know how I feel when I've practiced something over and over (rote) I don't want anything in front of me, basically I want to prove to myself, that I don't need the notes. Example: If I were to perform a musical piece, I'll have all ready practiced it, many times, so having notes in front of me defeat the purpose, but that's just me. thanks for your responses!!|
|Oct-21-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: You are definitely welcome ... I had no idea anyone even cared. I know that - for me, personally - seeing that video was a real joy. To be honest, if not for Bobby Fischer, I would probably be your next-door plumber, and not involved in chess today. |
Poor Bobby, so talented, such a brilliant mind. It still bothers me that he ended the way that he did.
However, I can ALWAYS separate the man from his games. Bobby's games - for me - are like jewels that only grow brighter with age.
All the best - aj
|Oct-21-13|| ||RookFile: Fischer showed one variation in the video involving Qd5+ and Qxa8 that I don't remember seeing in anybody's else's notes to the game.|
