   Mar-28-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Albion 1959: Edzelli - Wrong! I don't believe that Fischer was scared of anyone. I think he would have got past Karpov and maybe even Kasparov at a first attempt. Though I am of the view that Kasparov would have eventually beaten him. Bobby's motives are hard to fathom as to why he just quit
   Mar-16-17 Adams vs D Howell, 2012
Albion 1959: The ultimate example of "Sitzfleisch" This is more akin to Bobby Fischer. Ie: Geller v Fischer Palma 1970 or Fischer v Taimanov Candidates Game 2 in 1971. Here Adams grinds away for nearly 60 moves in a position where most players would probably agree to a draw, but not Mickey! ...
   Mar-14-17 M Basman vs Miles, 1981
Albion 1959: Mickey takes his hat off ! A Mickey mouse opening gets the treatment it deserves. Basman is a tricky player with his offbeat unorthodox opening lines, which work against players of similar strength as well as weaker ones. But ultimately he comes unstuck against stronger ...
   Feb-01-17 Kasparov vs Csom, 1980
Albion 1959: So where was the extra queen? There was actual promotion in the game. Yes there were some lines when black resigned that showed the promotion of the pawn on g7, but to class this in the multiple queens category - NO !
   Jan-28-17 Kasparov vs Marjanovic, 1980
Albion 1959: Once again "Kaspowerov" The energy and the way he finds these attacks, makes it look so easy - if only it was, then I might become a World Champion, but that will never happen !
   Jan-26-17 M Basman vs D Goodman, 1979 (replies)
Albion 1959: Goodman still had a draw in hand, but let it slip with 65 Rf1+?? For example 65 Kf4 Ra4+! 66 Kf5 Ra5+ 67 Kf6 Rxe6+ 68 Kxe6 d1=Q 69 Rg8+ Kh7 With a draw, if 70 d8=Q Qe2+ With a barrage of checks the game is a clear draw!
   Jan-26-17 Larsen vs Petrosian, 1966 (replies)
Albion 1959: To Chrisowen - Is that Nadsat as used in The Clockwork Orange?
   Jan-24-17 Miles vs Short, 1980
Albion 1959: What a sickener for Short ! This must have knocked his confidence and in the first round, since his subsequent results bore testimony. However to his credit he proved that he was made of harder metal and showed his real character by eventually getting the better of Miles and ...
   Jan-23-17 L Shamkovich vs Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
Albion 1959: Move 8 Re8 does not look right here, it leaves f7 undefended. It would be okay if black had followed up with Nf8 and Ng6, but instead black played the weakening h6?! which is almost inviting a sacrifice on h6. Move 14 Red8?! leaves e6 under protected, surely Rad8 was more ...
   Jan-23-17 Spassky vs Timman, 1977 (replies)
Albion 1959: Vintage Spassky! The ex-world champion rolls back the years to recreate the type of attacks he was renowned for in his halcyon days:
