Mar-13-12  ephesians: My guess is that Byrne had studied the entire game in home analysis, before this was even played.
Mar-13-12  AlanPardew: Well, it wouldn't have been much help studying the entire game in home analysis after it was played.
Mar-14-12  Bobby Spassky: "AlanPardew: Well, it wouldn't have been much help studying the entire game in home analysis after it was played."

Yes, nobody learns from their mistakes.

Some players never do, just like people in real life. Santayana got it right a long time ago.

Jul-05-18  Howard: CL&R told the interesting anecdote back in late 1976 that when Rogoff and Byrne were going over their game afterwards, they at one point were studying a hypothetical position that may have occurred in the opening phase. At that point, Csom happened to stroll by. He glanced at the position for a few moments, and then he quickly played a rook sacrifice. As he was walking away, he said "over his shoulder" that he and some other Hungarians had studied that position a few years ago.
