   May-23-18 Fischer vs Bisguier, 1957 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: I know the first Russian G.M. Fischer beat was this game: Fischer vs Keres, 1959 . But who the first actual holder of a G.M title that Fischer beat? Was it Fischer vs Bisguier, 1957 . Bisguier was awarded the GM title in 1957. This game was played late in December 1957
 
   May-22-18 D Byrne vs Feuerstein, 1956
 
Sally Simpson: Unphased by being the loser in "The Game of the Century" D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 which was played two rounds earlier, Byrne, albeit from a different move order has the same position as White. Here Black played 5...d6. In the GOTC Fischer pushed the d-pawn one square further ...
 
   May-20-18 Fischer vs V Kovacevic, 1970 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: That is a good post Fischer vs V Kovacevic, 1970 (kibitz #99) Cmrlec says: "I see three rough options to interpret this story." I see a 4th that does need a mention. Fischer shaking hands and saying 'Well Done.' For all his faults, and Everett is 100% in saying Fischer ...
 
   May-20-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Hi beatgiant, This post: Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (kibitz #50) I believe Fine. Why should he lie. I recall at the 1992 pre-match press conference a brave journalist asked Bobby about 29...Bxh2 and if it was an attempt to win. Bobby mumbled 'Yes'. --- During the game ...
 
   May-19-18 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
 
Sally Simpson: Today whilst browsing a 2nd hand book shop I noticed a pile of old Time Magazines. 24th March 1958 was there... https://scontent.flhr4-1.fna.fbcdn.... ...I bought it. It has the article about Fischer winning the U.S. title and mentions the 'Game of the Century.' A snippet ...
 
   May-19-18 Capablanca Memorial (2018) (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: If Caruana plays. The Olympiad finishes on the 7th of October. The W.C. match starts on the 9th of November. That is 33 days a few of which will spent travelling to prepare and get his head right for a match v Carlsen. Karjakin played in the 2016 Olympiad but that finished on
 
   May-19-18 Women's World Championship (2018) (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Possibly call this 'The Friendly Final'. Ju does appear to have taken her foot off the gas in the last game. Possibly nerves. She spent a long time avoiding the clear win on moves (48-50). The report says the two are great friends. ""The players are more than friends, almost
 
   May-16-18 Ju Wenjun vs Tan Zhongyi, 2018
 
Sally Simpson: This one, starting with 27.Rxe5 does not shout at you 'something here.' [DIAGRAM] Of course all exchanges should be examined for a twist or a turn but this is an easily missed shot. Ju Wenjun spent 53 seconds on 27.Bc2. On move 25 (Bd3) she spent 6 minutes possibly deciding ...
 
   May-16-18 Tan Zhongyi vs Ju Wenjun, 2018 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: White has just played 45.e3-e4. [DIAGRAM] This saves the game because 45...f4 46.Re6+ and due to stalemate White can keep checking on the 6th rank with the Rook.
 
   May-14-18 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
 
Sally Simpson: Hi Howard, "Seems pretty surprising that no one has pointed out 41...Rc2! before." Eggman had actually mentioned before in 2005. Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981 (kibitz #20) If 41...Rc2 was the only way to win then Karpov, then at his ultimate peak would have played it. ...
