savagerules: Don't know about Jimmy Page's favorite solo in 1972 but I loved the short but sweet nylon guitar solo in Alone Again by Gilbert O'Sullivan in 1972. (By the way, don't anybody listen to Alone Again if you take meds) Actually it's amazing that a song with such gloomy, depressing ...
 
   Mar-23-17 Paul Poschel (replies)
 
savagerules: Surprisingly that photo of Poschel is nothing what I pictured when I played over the game with Fischer. I thought he would be past 50 yrs old, graying and balding and professorish looking but instead he's in his early 30s and athletic-looking when the photo was taken a couple ...

savagerules: Wind and bullets. Winter is about over and he probably thinks he can manage being outside now. As the old Animals song goes "It's my life and I'll do what I want. It's my mind and I'll think what I like."
 
   Feb-06-17 Spassky vs J Penrose, 1969 (replies)
 
savagerules: Spassky had an incredible score with the Saemisch in his career up until 1973. 20 wins 0 losses and 5 draws (according to the database on this site). No wonder Fischer decided not to play the KID in their 1972 match.
 
   Jan-25-17 Aronian vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
 
savagerules: Game of the year so far. Maybe Aronian is now recovered from the nosectomy surgery.
 
   Jan-20-17 B Adhiban vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
savagerules: Wow- King's Gambit in a top level game. Looks like So was prepared even for that.
 
   Jan-17-17 Hans Berliner (replies)
 
savagerules: Berliner was the left handed version of Weaver Adams who famously said 1 e4 and wins. Berliner said 1 d4 and wins. Some years ago he did a lengthy analysis which he claimed busted the Gruenfeld forever but overlooked a rather simple resource for Black around move 15 or 16 that ...
 
   Jan-07-17 Palma de Mallorca Interzonal (1970) (replies)
 
savagerules: There's a short video out there at the end of the Botvinnik-Fischer game where a visibly relieved and smiling Botvinnik shakes hands of his fellow players for making a draw while Fischer looks pale and shocked for what he thought was a certain win. Botvinnik wore a casual short ...
 
   Jan-07-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
savagerules: I actually watched recently the Columbo episode where the hard-of-hearing chess champ manages to lose by a fool's mate during a simul, while being questioned by Columbo on the murder investigation. The chess board and moves were accurate, surprisingly, but even a comatose master
 
   Jan-07-17 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
 
savagerules: Those above videos of the award ceremony were hilarious where Ivanchuk is busy playing checkers and they announce his name to come up to get his first place prize in the Rapid chess world championship and he has to hurriedly run up there. Then you can see him calculating to ...
