|Dec-01-04|| ||kostich in time: Pavey was once champion of Scotland anda minor US master from the early nineteen fifties. He is famous for two things. In the early fities, Fischer played in a simul against him-probably Bobbys first game against a master. Secondly, he played against Keres in the 1955 US-USSR match. Despite the fact that he was seemingly hopelessly outclassed, he actually managed to win one game of the 4 game set. |
|Mar-05-05|| ||pazzed paun: <kostich in time> ANY comments about the Lincoln was ... controversy?
MAX PAVEY played in the Moscow 1956 tournament-he had a great quote that went something like-the Russians maybe
better prepared in the opening but Americans can win by fighting spirit and imagination in the middlegame.
substitue MASTER for Russian AND AMAETUER for AMERICAN -and this should be some good advice for 1400 level players for spend years trying to memorise openings 25 moves deep or study worthless "opening statistics"! |
