   Jun-17-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
Albion 1959: Larry Evans, after the 1972 match was quoted as saying that he did not believe that Fischer would play again. The fact that Fischer played no chess between 1972 and 1975 clearly confirmed this. I don't believe that Fischer was ever going to play Karpov, if FIDE had agreed to the
   Jun-10-17 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970
Albion 1959: Had another look at this game, I still think that is his best game from 1970. All that brilliant play from move 20, just to win a pawn. But also it resulted in a simplified position where Fischer had a 3-1 kingside pawn advantage and that proved to be enough:
   Jun-10-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016
Albion 1959: To VisayanBraindoctor. I share your thoughts on tie breaks to decide the outcome of a world title match. These are akin to a penalty shoot-out in football matches, not really a fair way to decide who is the best. Maybe one suggestion is sudden death? For example, say after 24 ...

Albion 1959: To morfishine. I think you need to get out more and get more fun out life. And as for your penchant for Fischerandom 960 chess. Good luck to you!
   May-01-17 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1913 (replies)
Albion 1959: This classic ending is featured in Irving Chernev's brilliant book "Capablanca's 60 Best Chess Endings - Game 19, though in Chernev's book moves 63 and 64 are not given! However, it DOES NOT appear in Golombek's Capablanca's 100 best games! It does appear in The Unknown ...
   Apr-26-17 Larsen vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
Albion 1959: Clearly an oversight in Larsen's calculations or a blind spot? The best 31st move was b4!For example: 31. b4! Nxd4 32. Bxd4 (The bishop protects a1 now) 32. Rd2 33. g3 Rxd4 34. b5 Larsen should not lose from here the b-pawn should allow him to hold this resulting ...
   Apr-19-17 E Bone vs L Dubeck, 1971
Albion 1959: Oh, them bones, them bones, them dry bones! The Duebeck Immortal? It looked like one of those Morphy v Amateur from the 1850's games. What a mess white got into as early as move 9! Qc1? was a poor misguided attempt to exchange the dark squared bishops. Surely Nf3 is better? Move
   Apr-15-17 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 (replies)
Albion 1959: Amazing to think that Bronstein was unable to defeat Spassky once in 22 games! The Spassky Immortal Game? Possibly, though the use of computers and powerful search engines will have taken some of the gloss of this game. A key feature of a Spassky attack is the white squared ...
   Apr-15-17 Spassky vs Pilnik, 1955
Albion 1959: A game that has made the anthologies, though for me a lot of this was home preparation with teams of analysis doing the donkey work. The game was most in part replicated by Geller and Keres! Which makes me wonder if such lavish praise should be given to this game? In Fischer ...
   Mar-30-17 Nunn vs Adorjan, 1975 (replies)
Albion 1959: This had to done by pure intuition in the style of Tal. No way Adorjan worked all this out! White uncastled king in the centre, open diagonals for the bishops assisted by an active queen all lead to belief that there must be something there in this position! I have played in ...
