|Jul-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Fischer the dumbo|
|Aug-11-09|| ||Sebas88: With 10 years "Bobby" and showed good manners, a portent.|
|Aug-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: "Blits kills ideas" Bobby Fischer|
|Dec-15-09|| ||Inf: Wow to see the King Bobby Fischer get mated!|
|Jul-27-10|| ||kingscrusher: Hold on, Dan Mayers player in many UK blitz tournaments, but I don't think mentioned this Fischer win.|
Is this the same Dan Mayers as:
He really beat Fischer ?!
|Jul-27-10|| ||Benzol: <kingscrusher> I believe it is the same player. The game appears in John Donaldson and Eric Tangborns' book 'The Unknown Bobby Fischer'. The first game in the book, an introduction states "The first is provided by Dan Mayers, a former English Senior Champion".|
|Jun-24-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Born in 1922, so he could conceivably be the "D Mayers" at the ACF Congress (US Open) at Boston in 1938.|
|Feb-19-12|| ||ArtsewS: Just created a short Youtube video on this game (less then 5 minutes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyU_...|
|Jun-24-12|| ||itzmajic: Hmm, couldn't believe I seen that move, you can't knock the kid though, it was probably nerves. Wasn't this his first game?|
|Mar-10-13|| ||Oliveira: Bobby should have played 15...f6; then the game might have continued 16.♖g4+ ♔f7 17.♖g7+ ♔e8 18.♘xf4 and I wouldn't want to have the black pieces here. |

|Mar-11-13|| ||morfishine: Can't get much more crushing than this; Of course, Fischer supposedly 'busted' the KG 8-years later [ie: 3...d6]|
|Sep-20-13|| ||DrAttitude: Bishop and Knight mate. Mate. Mate. Mate. Practice, Practice, Practice.|
|Nov-15-14|| ||Ke2: Very funny how Fischer is 0 for 2 in the KG.|
|Nov-15-14|| ||perfidious: <Ke2> Small sample size, comprising a blitz game played at age ten, with the other game featuring a blunder in a position where Fischer had a clear advantage.|
Back to the drawing board for another Fischer detractor.....
|Dec-13-14|| ||TheBish: Fischer was still two months shy of turning 10, if the game was played in January, according to the date on the scoresheet.|
|Apr-11-15|| ||ALKINAN: 10years; he was born in March 1943.|
|Feb-14-16|| ||RookFile: Mistakes on both sides. Just a blitz game.|
|Feb-23-17|| ||MrJafari: Fischer was aback with a sudden attack of his opponent and a mistake of himself!|
|Feb-23-17|| ||morfishine: More interesting is Fischer's opponent, Dan Myers, who as a physicist, worked on the A-bomb project during WWII|
In this game, his pieces radiated power in all directions, overwhelming Fischer
|Mar-01-17|| ||offramp: <morfishine: More interesting is Fischer's opponent, Dan Myers, who as a physicist, worked on the A-bomb project during WWII

I wonder if Myers was an acquaintance of Paul Nemenyi.
|Mar-26-17|| ||technical draw: Mayers died in 2014. This game was played in 1953. That means that Mayers had 61 years of bragging rights!|
"Fischer, Smicher, I beat him 61 years ago!"
|Apr-21-18|| ||FSR: Fischer always lost to the King's Gambit - 0-2 (his 1960 game against Spassky of course being a little more significant than this 1953 blitz game). Repertoire Explorer: Robert James Fischer (black)|
|Apr-21-18|| ||RookFile: His opponent played 3. Bc4. Fischer himself preferred that move in the few occasions he played this with white.|
|May-22-18|| ||bobbyperezchess: I don't want King's Gambit Accepted. Decline it with 2...Bc5!?|
|Nov-13-18|| ||linuxguy: 11...NxNd2 Judging by the naked-eye, this is where he lost the thread. After 11...Qg5, 12.QxQ NxQ, I would prefer Black.|
He played surprisingly well for his age, kept track of both the threats, and positional advantages.
