Losing on time to Reshevsky???
That sure took more than a miracle.>
...since it was round 6,
and the "Game of the Century" was round 8.
...the first "Game of the Century."
|Sep-04-15|| ||HeMateMe: I've always suspected that Spassky's last win in the match was arranged. Bob wouldn't have fallen for the simple tactics in that game that led to a loss.|
|Sep-04-15|| ||MissScarlett: <Here is a blow by blow account of that critical hour on the 31st July 1972 by Prof. Christian Hesse.>|
On behalf of Edward Winter, I'm compelled to ask: where did Hesse get his information from?
|Sep-04-15|| ||Sally Simpson: He seems on the level.
The links seem temperamental when posted here but if you google.
'Prof. Christian Hesse + fischer spassky'
It takes you parts 1-4 of 'A great moment in chess.'
Part 2 is abridged above.
This is the link to part 2.
It worked a few times but not now (on my kit it stops - possibly work firewall)
|Sep-04-15|| ||schweigzwang: <The Icelanders hired two look-alike actors to play out the match with games made up by Lothar Schmid.>|
I *knew* it! First the alleged moon landing, then the Mets, then this.

I wonder if Fischer liked this guy because he had a chess name? :)
|Sep-04-15|| ||fisayo123: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yL...
The tournament, from the barely visible poster, seems to be the 2nd Piatigorsky Cup. And Fischer, is playing "Ivanovic", is that meant to be Ivkov? In any event, that makes little sense since Ivkov was never "fourth best player in the world", using chessmetrics for instance or just common sense.
Anyway, I hope the movie has more to do with chess and way less to do with other stuff.
|Sep-04-15|| ||TheFocus: If anyone has seen <Pawn Sacrifice>, did they spend a lot of time on his 15-puzzle expertise?|
Hey, they could do a whole movie just on that.
But who would play as Johnny Carson? (Please don't pick Leno, Letterman or O'Brian.)
|Sep-04-15|| ||TheFocus: Leno, Letterman and O'Brian.
Sounds like the divorce firm that took me for everything in my last divorce.
|Sep-04-15|| ||AylerKupp: <<diceman> I wonder if Fischer liked this guy because he had a chess name?>|
No, Fischer liked Marshall because he was doing his work pro bono.

on Fischer's right (with gray hair no less) is "Brent" Larsen!

SelfMate, HelpMate, and CheckMate.
|Sep-04-15|| ||savagerules: What's with that clip of the upcoming movie? They used a fake chessplayer named Ivanovic who is apparently the number 3 player in the world and then the totally fictitious event where Fischer waits until a few seconds before being forfeited to make the first move against him. What's next is Boris Spassky going to be renamed also? Maybe they couldn't get clearance to use real names or something and Fischer in this clip looks more like the scrawny Karpov than the tall Fischer.|
|Sep-04-15|| ||Petrosianic: You don't need clearance to use real names.|
|Sep-04-15|| ||TheFocus: Hmmm.
Larry Smith (referee).
It would sell much better with the Americans if you Anglicized the names.
|Sep-04-15|| ||Joshka: <TheFocus> Think it hits the movie houses tomorrow?|
|Sep-04-15|| ||latvalatvian: As mentioned before I recently went to 25 psychologists about my mania for eradicating the chess computer engine from the face of the earth. I learned that ten of my psychologists had chess computers themselves and this made me think that defending myself was hopeless. But a day ago I was able to get four of the ten psychologists to turn over their chess computer to the nearest recycling depo. They are going to be recycled into plastic spoons. Now think of it: Topalov has a human mind, Carlsen has a human mind, Aronian has a human mind. You may think they are just computers and that it is a coincidence that they are also flesh and blood. Butt the best way to improve your chess (the only way) is to study annotated games between human beings. You may not be able to think like Carlsen within a week, but you might be able to emulate the thoughts of a local master within your area in a year or two. On the hand if you try to think like a computer, you are completely lost and might as well give up chess.|

Only if the projection and the sound is absolutely perfect. If the audience makes the slightest noise the projectionist will stop the film.
|Sep-04-15|| ||TheFocus: Movie theaters will not be selling candy as opening the wrappers would be too noisy.|
|Sep-04-15|| ||Eggman: What's with the total absence of posts on this page from Aug 25 through Sept 1? Some kind of major purge of posts or something?|
|Sep-04-15|| ||Joshka: I see no posts at all from August 25th, thru September 1st. Maybe there just weren't any?|
Lots of posting during these days about the Sinquefeld Cup.
|Sep-04-15|| ||Joshka: Speaking of new films, Johnny Depp plays Whitey Bulger in "Black Mass" I used to live in some of the areas Bulger controlled around Boston back in the late 70's early 80's. The paradox was that his younger brother (Billy) was one of the top political leaders in Boston at that time, President of the Senate, very straight, kids didn't watch TV, all spoke Latin/ very strict Catholics, ect. Wonder if it was filmed in Boston? Recall a couple of years ago, they made a mob movie about Cleveland's Danny Green, and the bastards filmed it in Detroit!!!!LOL|
|Sep-04-15|| ||harrylime: Geeeez what would RJF think of these pages ??!
lol lol Lol
|Sep-04-15|| ||HeMateMe: He'd ban you, straight off, Harry.
I do hope the Bulger movie is better than that overwrought mess directed by Martin Scorsese, with Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson and Mark Walhberg. The movie was 45 minutes too long.
