   Aug-24-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
todicav23: <KnightVBishop: Would you guys agree that Bobby Fischer's 2789 rating is equivalent to about a 2300-2400 rating today?> There's actually a rating deflation. Fischer would be at most 2300. Botvinnik 2100 Lasker, Capablanca 1900 Pillsbury 1700 Morphy 1300
   Aug-16-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
todicav23: <Marmot PFL: Kasparov was very critical of Fischer's play in his 1992 rematch with Spassky, how such bad play tarnished his legacy and so on. Probably what angered Kasparov most was that Fischer called that a world championship match after Kasparov had earned the title. Anyway ...
   Jul-28-17 Fischer vs Pedro Galarraga, 1960 (replies)
todicav23: Fischer played really bad in this game.
   Jul-27-17 Fischer vs W Beach, 1963 (replies)
todicav23: <TheFocus: It seems that Fischer had great memory for his big wins, but other games not so much. In early Chess Life or Chess Review advertisements, he asked for early opponents to send in copies of their score-sheets if they had them. If he could remember every move of every ...
   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
   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
   Jun-21-17 Sarin Nihal (replies)
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 ...
