Petrosianic: <Jim Bartle>: <Ruth is a saint compared to some other greats such as Ty Cobb.> Yeah, but I think that with Cobb, it's sort of generally known that he had an unsavory side, while people still think of Ruth as a lovable lug who called shots for kids in the hospital. I ...

Petrosianic: I don't know if the game itself was patentable, but the name "Fischer Random" was surely the kind of thing that could be copyrighted. A lot of sources call it Chess960, just to avoid any possible legal snafus with the name.

Petrosianic: FWIW, Chessmetrics lists Steiner's 10-10 score in the '52 Interzonal as his all-time best performance.
 
   Jul-24-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
 
Petrosianic: <Chess Life, November 5, 1952 EUWE TO PLAY IN CANDIDATES According to an announcement by FIDE, Dr. Max Euwe has decided to play in the World Championship Candidates Tournament..."> As easy as that. No qualification or anything, he just decided. (I suspect Reshevsky got ...
 
   Jul-24-15 Fischer - Spassky (1992) (replies)

   Jul-24-15 Denker vs Fine, 1944 (replies)
 
Petrosianic: Heard the story, but I can't think of any time other than the 1944 US Championship where Denker specifically stood in Fine's way. The other instances must have been pretty minor.

Petrosianic: <keypusher> <Did you look at the article? It's tracing a combinational theme from a Morphy game from 1859,> Not only that, he put them in the same sentence himself!
 
   Jul-21-15 Korchnoi - Spassky Candidates Final (1977)
 
Petrosianic: He wasn't relieved, he became so unglued that he couldn't even bear to sit on the same stage with his opponent. Then Korchnoi became even more unglued. For both financial and sporting reasons, Spassky would have preferred losing a World Championship match to losing a Candidates
