   Jul-05-08 Ragozin vs Botvinnik, 1951 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: Only Ragozin's third win against MB, it took 67 games to manage this. It was his only win with the white pieces !!
 
   Jul-05-08 Botvinnik vs Ragozin, 1936 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: At last a Ragozin win against Mischa, it took him fifteen games to manage this !!
 
   Jul-05-08 Ragozin vs Botvinnik, 1936
 
Fast Gun: Maybe Botvinnik felt sorry for Ragozin? After all he had beaten him in their first eleven consecutive games and felt obliged to give Ragozin something for his efforts:
 
   Jul-01-08 Tal vs Uhlmann, 1971 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: This game also appears in Cafferty's Tal's 100 Best Games (1973) Quite an achievement to outplay and demolish a specialist on the French like Uhlmann in less than 20 moves !!

Fast Gun: After this the last game of the match, Fischer had played his final game of his career and disappeared into the wilderness with $5 million in his back pocket never to play again !! What a waste of chess talent:
 
   Jun-01-08 Tal vs Karpov, 1971 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: Yes, Kg2 is an easy win for white !! How is possible for both players to overlook this ? (Time trouble?) On move 91 instead of Qb1?? Karpov should have played Qh1!! Threatening a series of checks against the white king: However Tal gets a second chance on move 93 with Rd7 (Who is ...
 
   Jun-01-08 Tal vs Karpov, 1988
 
Fast Gun: Games like these are "pants" there is plenty of play left in this position. Surely they could have played on. A typical Russian Grand Master draw, I doubt whether Fischer would taken a draw here, no matter which colour he had !!
 
   May-30-08 A Matanovic vs Benko, 1958 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: Subtle bishop tempo moves near the end to promote the pawn:
 
   May-30-08 Robert E Byrne vs Benko, 1963 (replies)
 
Fast Gun: Is this not the same US Championship where Fischer won with a clean sweep of 11 - 0 ?
