|Apr-01-11|| ||AylerKupp: <andrewjsacks> Yes, I knew about Mrs. P. I was curious and I recently Googled her, and I was pleasantly surprised that she was still alive. I occasionally drive by her house on Bundy and think of her, the wonderful times I had during those years, and the one time that she graciously invited some of us to visit her at her home. Were you one of them? I don't remember. Old age and all that.|
BTW, I am now retired and have more time on my hands, and I have rekindled my interest in chess. So, if you need some help in getting that book off the ground, let me know and I may be able to contribute. I may even record my song about Larsen-Petrosian, Santa Monica 1966 and let you include it as part of the book. And, no, I wouldn't do that. Those that have heard me sing would understand.
|Apr-01-11|| ||fab4: just played thru this.. White just never got anytime to orchestrate anythingng on the kingside.. the c file and powerful queen on d4 paid to that... |
and 35.. Rc3 secured at least a draw....
Well played Sacks! Bravo!
|Apr-01-11|| ||andrewjsacks: Thank you, fab4.|
|Apr-01-11|| ||andrewjsacks: Thank you for the offer, Ayler; might just take you up on that...um...on part of it. Ha!|
|Dec-23-11|| ||andrewjsacks: IM John Donaldson points out that 39...Bxh4! would have won for me.|
|Jan-22-12|| ||Nozsr: Thanks for this discussion. I remember that Sunday afternoon fondly although I was one of the 47 "also-ran losers" at the Knickerbocker Hotel event. I was 16 then. (64 now, seems like a lifetime ago, maybe because it was). Thanks to the Piatigorsky's I came from "the country" to the big city for this and for the Cal Junior Championships in 1964. - Mike|
|Jan-22-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Thanks for the post, Mike. Yes, Mrs. P. provided us juniors with opportunities galore.|
|Jun-10-12|| ||xreny: good Game !!|
|Jun-17-12|| ||utssb: Not quite sure how Fischer managed to draw with such a terribad.|

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but this is your second kibitz in 2 years and it's all you can say? Black was a youngster back then and I bet he was thrilled just to play Fischer. Maybe you're jealous, I don't know. Whatever, just go back to sleep and do all of us a favor that just want to appreciate a good effort by a young player.
|Jun-18-12|| ||andrewjsacks: <King Death> Thank you. Is it not remarkable what one sometimes gets when anyone can post just about anything?|
|Jun-18-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <andrewjsacks> Congratulations for drawing against Fischer!|
|Jun-18-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Thank you, LTJ.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||HeMateMe: <AJS> Really, if you broadened your opening repertoire, I think you would be ready for Spassky. Of course, Spassky would need a tune up first...|
|Jun-18-12|| ||RookFile: He's ready for Fischer now. Winner by forfeit!|
|Jun-18-12|| ||andrewjsacks: <HeMateMe> Thank you for the vote of confidence. However, I think I'll wait on that challenge...|
|Dec-16-12|| ||Calli: <andrewjsacks> Can you be seen in this photograph of the event? http://framework.latimes.com/2012/1...|
|Dec-24-12|| ||HAPERSAUD: <andrewjsacks> May I ask what emotions crossed your mind in the game agaisnt Fischer? And if ever doubt or dare I say fear arrived, how did you overcome them? In this day most of those lines played have been analysed to such depths there really Is little mystery to the positions. As I search for my own Personal well of courage to face masters in my competitions it would be great to hear words of wisdom :). My last game against an IM I lost face in a completely drawn position imagining he had ideas of such depth that I could not dare win, low and behold I missed a winning line.|
|Dec-31-12|| ||andrewjsacks: <HAPERSAUD> Thank you for asking. Because of youthful confidence and exuberance, I was within myself, though I was fearful he might notice the shot if he played, as he did, 35. g4. Fortunately for me, it was a 50-board simul, so not enough time or care were taken by him to allow the surprising shot, which actually should have won, but I was so pleased to draw that I went directly for the forced repetition of moves...|
|Jan-12-13|| ||AnotherNN: When I played this game, OTB I also noted Bxh4 at move 39.|
There are a few variations but I think a plausible continuation is 40.Rd3 Qf2 41.Rg2 Qe1 and now White can't play 42.Rxd6 since Be7 will lose White the R or else be mated.
But there are other possibilities starting with 40.R(1)g2 Qg5 41.Rd3 Qe7 42.R(2)d2 Be1 (threatening Qh4+) which brings up other complications.
All in all, worth mentioning...
|Jan-12-13|| ||andrewjsacks: <AnotherNN> Yes, 39...Bxh4 was the move, all right--but as I think I said below, I was so pleased at that point as a 15-year-old kid to get a draw with the great Fischer, I did not notice it and simply went for the sure draw. C'est la vie.|
|Jan-12-13|| ||Check It Out: <andrewjsacks> Cool, historical game, and well played!|
Bonus: from the start this forum's commentary is fascinating and highly recommended.
|Jan-13-13|| ||andrewjsacks: <Check It Out> Thank you. Yes, there have been a lot of both favorable and helpful comments here. Best to you!|
|Jan-13-13|| ||diceman: Interesting to compare this game:
Fischer vs O Gadia, 1960
Fischer gets the bishop to d5 first, which leaves him with a much greater advantage.
(good knight vs. bad bishop)
I donít play the Sicilian, but Iím guessing thatís the ďcostĒ of black not rushing
|Jan-13-13|| ||andrewjsacks: <diceman> Isn't it interesting how often a seemingly innocuous move order transposition can be so important in such a potentially sharp line? Thanks for looking and commenting. Appreciated.|
