   Mar-25-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Absentee: <EdZelli: Bobby would always moan and groan for more money. Ironically, when the big payday arrived in 1975, he put his tail between his legs and ran off scared out of his pants. There is only one reason for why he fled, Bobby had always tracked Karpov's games (* even a decade ...
   Mar-22-17 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1970
Absentee: <The Rocket: ...he moved fast, that's it.> This should go straight to the memorable quotes page, except he's serious.
   Mar-21-17 Borislav Ivanov (replies)
Absentee: <Domdaniel: This page still has a link to "FIDE Player card for Borislav Ivanov" ... but it leads nowhere, as there is no such FIDE card.> Perhaps that was counterfeited too.
   Mar-13-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Absentee: <AylerKupp: And since Snowden showed that the NSA can (but does not necessarily do) record everyone’s conversations, then why would Obama or anyone else have to order any wire tapping to take place? It would just simply happen.> Bull. And in bad faith, too. Snowden showed ...
   Feb-28-17 Women's World Championship (2017) (replies)
Absentee: <stst: ...or, as Fish... Brooklyn playgrounds...> Yes, good example. Fischer was famous for never making any special demands of the organizers.
   Feb-27-17 FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) (replies)
Absentee: <spinal pat: <Compliant with what?> That's probably about her protest game a couple of weeks ago, because she played many women in Gibraltar and she wanted to play against more male opponents (for the higher level of chess). She thought it was rigged in some way.> No, ...
   Feb-22-17 Tradewise Gibraltar (2017) (replies)
Absentee: <Riverbeast: <Absentee> No inconsistencies there...I believed the pairings were rigged, and still have not seen proof they weren't...One person who did manual pairings said most of Hou's pairings were correct, but one round was not.> Then you have a lot of catching up ...
   Feb-12-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
Absentee: I thought that was epistle. But tuttifrutty, chessalem, etc, they're all tolengoy.
   Feb-07-17 Yifan Hou vs B Lalith, 2017
Absentee: <luzhin: Shortsight, the purpose of randomly generated pairings is not to give each player what he or she wants (even if that were possible).> The pairings aren't random. There's no randomness in the algorithm. The only element of chance, if you want to call it that, is the ...

Absentee: <Lambda: I dislike expectations that people in the public eye always act perfectly, it means seriously deviant behaviour from the likes of Trump stands out less, with horrific results.> Trump's presidency is the best thing that's happened in international politics in years.
