   Jul-07-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
todicav23: <I'm not sure either. Lev Alburt claimed as far back as the 80's that the Soviets were relying on them (that's supposedly why Karpov collapsed in KK-I, from being on them for too long). There's also coffee and other more everyday drugs.> Interesting. I never heard this story
   Jul-06-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
todicav23: <Experts include Kasparov in the modern game's top players, but he himself once said US maverick Bobby Fischer, who dominated the game in the 1970s, was "the greatest chess player of all time".> When did Kasparov say that?
   Jun-28-17 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
todicav23: I'm very sensitive to noise. Especially repetitive noise generated by some electric or electronic devices drives me crazy sometimes. I perfectly understand Fischer. Probably that is why he blundered in the first game. It is true that most of the people are not affected by that ...

todicav23: <alexmagnus: If that was a response to <norami>'s comment - Polgar still holds the record for the highest rating (let alone ranking) ever reached by a pre-teen (2555).> Let's not forget that Judith achieved that rating in January 1989 when she was 12 years and 5 months

todicav23: He is almost 13 years old and his elo is 2454. At 12.5 years old Judith Polgar was 2555 (in top 50 in the world at the time) and that was in 1989! Don't get wrong, his achievements are very impressive. But he still needs to work very hard to get to the top.
   Apr-09-17 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1971
todicav23: Fischer talks about this game in the new interview:
   Mar-24-17 Anand vs Smyslov, 1989
todicav23: I found this: Grandmasters with minor planes named after them are Alexander Alekhine (1909 Alekhin), Vassily Smyslov (5413 Smyslov), Anatoly Karpov(90174 Karpov), Mikhail Chigorin (7268 Chigorin) and Kirsan Ilyumzhinov(5570 Kirsan). Other ...
   Mar-16-17 Garry Kasparov (replies)
todicav23: <MissScarlett: Harry Weinstein, you ain't no Isaac Newton: And I've never believed Bobby Nemenyi had an IQ of 167 or even 187. No offence, but I'm smarter than those guys put together.> Newton is probably the greatest scientist in the ...
   Feb-20-17 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
todicav23: I think the story of Capablanca being lazy is just a myth. You can't become one of the greatest players ever without working hard. Maybe he didn't read many chess books but I'm sure he worked hard to improve his play. Chess, like other games, is based on pattern recognition. You ...
   Jan-27-17 Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Rematch (1986) (replies)
todicav23: <Petrosianic: <todicav23>: <Kasparov is really a bad looser for accusing Karpov of cheating by having access to his preparation.> Possibly he is, but your actual arguments are nonsense. (No Black Magic was used, therefore no theft or prep occurred. That's a complete
