   Dec-24-17 E Najer vs A Timofeev, 2016 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: I got this, but would never have got it over the board, which is why I'm not a GM, I guess. When you get the hint that there is a winning move sequence due to it being a Chessgames puzzle, you look for things you might not consider in an actual game. Anyway, a Happy Christmas ...

Pawn Slayer: @patzer2 "Grandson scored two touch downs on offense" Just as a matter of interest, why do they call it a "touch down" when they don't actually touch the ball down? In a proper game (rugby) you actually have to get the ball down on the ground to score. American football is the

Pawn Slayer: I remember the Fischer motto: if you see a good move, don't play it - there might be a better one. 42 ....R8h6 wins but allows white to struggle on. I preferred 42 ....Qxc3+ when white's best response is 43 resigns.
   Apr-20-17 Fischer vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: Fischer may have been mentally unstable and hold extremely unpleasant views, but as a chess player, he was incomparable. In his prime, would he have beaten Kasparov or Carlsen in their primes? Probably not; though it's by no means impossible and with the advances in computer ...
   Feb-24-17 Jakovenko vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: well that was a non-event, wasn't it?
   Feb-09-17 Sahovic vs Korchnoi, 1979 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: I went for the finish 45...Rh8+ 46 Kxh8 Rd8+ 47 Rf8 Rxf8#. Otherwise, the same. Korchnoi was a monster.
   Feb-01-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: What a beautiful game, full of strategic ideas and tactical tricks by both sides, and a lovely finish. I would love to see the 1970 Boris Spassky, with his top rating of 2690, take on any current GM with a rating of 2690. He would massacre them.
   Jan-22-17 R Rapport vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: That is one of the worst games I've ever seen a World Champion play. 22....d3 was a dreadful move strategically, making the pawn a target and blocking the bishop on the white squares, and missing 27 e5 was suicide. He could have resigned then. Rapport is very good: this may give
   Dec-26-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Pawn Slayer: @todicav23:"Even if we consider that Spassky, Petrosian, Larsen or Taimanov were complete patzers my point is still valid. Fischer was extremely dominant against his peers". Precisely. Usain Bolt is the greatest 100/200m sprinter ever - look at his world record. But is he better
   Nov-20-16 Y Kryvoruchko vs E Romanov, 2015 (replies)
Pawn Slayer: I would have played 19.Qh5 without much hesitation, forgetting Fischer's maxim "If you see a good move, don't play it. There might be a better one". I think it wins anyway.
