Nov-01-04  rayzor: If I am not mistaken, this is an important game in history: the first time that a computer program defeated a human grandmaster under normal tournament conditions.

Nov-01-04  Knezh: Inastead of g4? 27. Rdg1+ has been suggested by the commentators.
Nov-01-04  ConLaMismaMano: This is the game i was talking about here: Bent Larsen
Nov-01-04  Spassky69: This game is a joke. Larsen played like a 2000 patzer.
Nov-02-04  Larsenb3: <Spassky69>not exactly a patzer but not his usual genius.
Nov-02-04  who: Why was the Bishop on g7 not taken for so long?
Nov-02-04  Larsenb3: More important matters where going on and he wanted to attack the d rook.
Nov-02-04  Spassky69: <Larsenb3> Larsen played a horrible opening. 1. c4. You do not know how much I hate the English!! If someone plays it I want to take the chess set throw it out the window and start over again by buying them a book on e4 openings.

PS d4 players I used to hate before I discovered the Budapest!! 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 players I still hate.

Nov-02-04  Larsenb3: tsk tsk so hateful of such good players.
Nov-02-04  PinkPanther: You hate d4 players? Do you hate people who wear glasses too? Or do you hate all people who live in the Eastern Hemisphere? That's kind of a large group of people to hate.
Nov-02-04  Granite: Personally I love the English, it's great for pissing off 1.e4 players and irritating your opponents is an advantage to be sure. Mind you, I doubt it has the same effect on computer opponents.
Nov-02-04  Spassky69: <d4 players I used to hate before I discovered the Budapest!!> I actually hate people who don't read my posts correctly.

Plus the best answer to c4 I think is c6 followed by d5.

Sep-27-07  Tal rules: King's Indian all the way! 1. d4 Nf6! 2. c4 g6! 3. Nc3 Bg7!!
