Anthony Saidy vs Robert James Fischer (1965) What's Up, Doc?

Mar-21-11  hottyboy90: Fischer is way better than Kramnik ever was in my opinion although I am sure there are going to be people who dispute this!

  chrisowen: <WhiteRook48> Dano shut reverted fufking RJF 0 1 he a go tell it lean baggar
Mar-22-11  selfmate: <Once:...An excellent example of an advantage in space, time and position outweighing a <disadvantage in material>. Great stuff.>

In the position you gave, it's black's move and he is immediately going to win another pawn - so material is actually even by the old 9-5-3-3-1 evaluation criterion. And, by the new Kaufman criterion (9.75-5-3.25-3.25-1), black has a slight material plus.

So it seems more accurate just to say black has a crushing positional advantage.

Mar-22-11  hottyboy90: Why is it that <chrisowen>'s comments never make sense?

  TheFocus: <hottyboy90>< Why is it that <chrisowen>'s comments never make sense?>

  thegoodanarchist: If anyone is wondering about the pun, as I was, look no further than the Saidy bio:

<Anthony Fred Saidy was born in Los Angeles. From 1963 to 1965 he was a doctor with the US Peace Corps in Jamaica>

Besides inane, what other kinds of twaddle are there?

Silly, foolish, stupid, fatuous, idiotic, ridiculous, ludicrous, absurd, senseless, asinine, frivolous, vapid...

  perfidious: There are, regrettably, too many: pity the one adjective noted by <tga> is but one of many in this regard.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: By the way, this is an amazing combination, especially because at the end of it (as in the even more amazing Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970) Fischer is in an exchange-down ending at the end of it. But he's forseen that the opposing rooks are not going to be able to get coordinated.

In a way, it's too bad that I (and probably most of us, the Americans anyway) saw Fischer's famous combinations when we were beginners, and couldn't fully appreciate them.
