todicav23: <TheFocus: Looking through Fischer's games, I see four that have no commentaries. Perhaps it is them? 315. Fischer - Hense 370. Fischer - Henriksen 372. Fischer - Jensen 635. Fischer - Zhukov> Thanks!
 
   Apr-09-17 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1971
 
todicav23: Fischer talks about this game in the new interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zP...
 
   Mar-24-17 Anand vs Smyslov, 1989
 
todicav23: I found this: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/spor... 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: http://sirisaacnewton.info/isaac-ne... 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
 
   Jan-27-17 Jeffery Xiong (replies)
 
todicav23: Even if Wei Yi is playing well in Tata Steel I think at this point Xiong has higher chances of becoming a WC candidate in the future. For some reasons Wei Yi stagnated for almost two years (at least his rating did).
 
   Jan-23-17 Karpov - Anand World Championship Match (1998)
 
todicav23: So many excuses for Anand. He knew ahead of time the schedule. Karpov was already 47 and way past his prime but he still managed to win the match. We all know who was the greater player.
 
   Jan-17-17 Volodia Vaisman (replies)
 
todicav23: I wonder if his rating is accurate. 2560 in the seventies was good enough to be in top 100.
 
   Jan-17-17 Hans Berliner (replies)
 
todicav23: RIP Hans Berliner. I remember reading somewhere that he started a PhD when he was 40 years old and he finished it at 45. He is an example that people can achieve great things later in life.
