  percyblakeney: What I’ve always suspected has now been proved, I’m better than Bobby Fischer. :-) These days Lew Hucks plays chess on GameKnot as "oldtimer", and here I’m lucky that he’s not playing as well as he usually does:

On his game with Fischer Hucks writes:

the day before his 21st birthday, Bobby Fischer gave a simultaneous exhibition at the Roosevelt Hotel in Washington DC. He played 65 people at once. I had the great fortune of beating him before he beat any of the others. In his book "A Legend on the Road," John Donaldson says “nothing fancy.” He says I “just outplayed him.”

  chessamateur: Horrible play by Bobby, even for a simul.

  chessamateur: <percyblakeney> I can make that claim too! I have a 2-2 record vs Mr. Hucks!
Apr-08-07  Joshka: Does Mr. Hucks ever talk about on "GameKnot" what Bobby's reaction was after the game??...heck how old was Huck's around that time?.....thanks in advance

  percyblakeney: <Joshka> Hucks was around 30 then, I don't know more about the Fischer game than what he writes on his home page. Hucks was rated 2050 and won before Fischer had won any of his games:

  chessamateur: <Joshka> I know Mr. Hucks personally because he plays in clubs and tournaments in Maryland. I'll have to ask him next time I see him.

  sneaky pete: Typical simulation chess.

"Bobby knocked the king over as he passed. I was momentarily stunned. I had to chase him halfway around the hall to get him to sign my scoresheet. I had won before he had beat any of the other 64 players." Hucks, quoted by Donaldson.

Sep-19-15  NikMuhdHaziq: Play at international level then you can what is your strength of chess. Try at Under 12 category World Youth if you can achieve top 10. If you can achieve top 10...if....then you can claim you are a better chess player.
