|Jun-10-06|| ||alexmagnus: Seldom thing: no kibitzing on Fischer's loss:-)|
|Jun-04-08|| ||Xeroxx: I can kibitz if you want?|
|Jun-04-08|| ||tonsillolith: <Xeroxx: I can kibitz if you want?>|
That won't be necessary. There are already three kibitzes.
|Jun-05-08|| ||Xeroxx: Alright, it would definitely not be necessary now when there are four kibitzes.|
|Sep-22-08|| ||Cactus: Can you not count? It's obvious there are five kibitzes!|
|Sep-22-08|| ||RookFile: Boy, black seems like he was a really strong player, master strength anyway, I'd say.|
|Sep-22-08|| ||RookFile: I found out from googling him that he was multiple times Mississipi State champion.|
|Sep-22-08|| ||BraveUlysses: I bet this feat is still Parham family folklore. We must remember it was a simul, Fischer was human even though it is hard to believe sometimes when looking over his games.|
|Sep-22-08|| ||drukenknight: 30 Bc5 I think would be the correct obvious move. I guess he didnt notice the f pawn was pinned..|
|Apr-12-10|| ||SharpAttack: The game was not played by Fenner Parham. The game was actually played by Bernard Parham whose uncle Fenner Parham registered for the simulataneous. Young Bernard was a minor at that time. Just for the information - Bernard Parham is the creator of the matrix chess system. He is a very aggressive and original attacking player but couldn't become a grandmaster due to financial reasons. He currently is taking a degree in education in Purdue University. I had the honor of playing him numerous times and getting thrashed brutally with his unique attacking style. Beating Bernard Parham in two games remains one of my most memorable achievements.|
|Apr-12-10|| ||TheFocus: <SharpAttack> Are you sure about that? Because Donaldson has Fenner in <A Legend on the Road>.|
|Apr-13-10|| ||TheFocus: Both the Times Picayune and American Chess Quarterly report that it was Fenner Parham. Bobby lost to a teenager, 15 year old Charles Levin, a Class C player. Rating lists in 1964 show that Bernard was Class C/B player. If two teenagers had beaten Bobby, I think they could have accurately reported it.|
This game appeared in ACQ. This is the game that Bobby said "Thanks for the lesson" after he resigned.

|Aug-03-10|| ||shatranj7: During a visit to my chess club, Bernard Parham and I began to have a discussion about the history of blacks in chess. During this discussion, he told me that when he was young, he had beaten Fischer before in a simul. I asked him if he used the Parham Attack (1.e4 e5. 2.Qh4). He said that he had not yet fully developed the system. He said that he beat him in the Giouco Piano (Italian Game). He even proceeded to show me (without the score sheet) the game. If this is not the same game, the moves are certainly congruent with what he showed me. I don't see any reason for him to bear false witness. I mean, he already is a master. It's nothing for a serious player to beat a master in a simul. I beat Parham in a simul, but I doubt that I can do it head to head. I drew with IM Stephen Muhammad in a simul. He annihilated me numerous times, one on one!|
|Aug-03-10|| ||shatranj7: As for The Focus' statement, "If two teenagers had beaten Bobby, I think that they could have accurately reported it," not if one of the teenagers was black. 1964 wasn't exactly a good year for blacks, who were considered intellectually inferior. The media certainly wouldn't have been too fond of revealing that a black teenager beat one of the strongest young, white players in the most intellectual sport. Therefore, it would be easy to assume that the magazines had it wrong. At least it would be possible for them to intentionally omit information, as had been done numerous times before.|
|Aug-03-10|| ||Jim Bartle: 1964 may not have been a good year for blacks in absolute terms, but it was better than the years which preceded it. Landmark civil rights legislation was passed in 1964.|

30.Kf3 and Bob is ok..
|Dec-22-11|| ||Dr. J: <shatranj7: ... he [F\Parham] had beaten Fischer in a simul ... I beat Parham in a simul>|
Then that must mean that you are simultaneously better than both Fischer and Parham ?!
