Sep-25-04  refutor: an excellent example of the strength of the bishop pair...also i'm really enjoying "Bobby Fischer Rediscovered"...has anyone other than AdrianP read it? ;)
Sep-25-04  acirce: I have read some of it, but mostly just been reading the text surrounding the games, not looking at the games themselves that much.
Aug-21-06  MyriadChoices: Is it a good book or would I be better to look to some other Fischer collection (MSMG?).
Mar-21-10  Notagm: What if 11. Bxc4?
Mar-21-10  Notagm: Ah, now I see: 11... Nxe4, followed by 12... f5, winning the pinned knight.
Mar-21-10  lost in space: 11. Bxc4 Nxe4 12. Ncxe4 f5; advantage black
Feb-09-15  kyg16: The fantastic chess journalist Leontxo Garcia narrates that the first time he met Fischer, was in Frankfurt in 1991.

Fischer was very reluctant to speak to journalists, but Garcia told him that he had been a professional chess player before dedicating fully to journalism. In order to prove this, Fischer took out a pocket board and set up a position, and asked Garcia to point out the best move.

The position was from this game vs. Pomar and Garcia remembered it. After that, Fischer became much more happy and warm towards him.

Equally genius and mad.

  chancho: <MissScarlett> :Where does Garcia discuss this?>

From a Garcia conference:

<Mi primer contacto con Bobby fue a través de un magnate colombiano.

Este me recomendó que no le dijera a Bobby que soy periodista, decidí no hacerle caso y contarle la verdad y le dije que era periodista especializado, todo esto sin vernos personalmente utilizando como mensajero al magnate en ajedrez.

Entonces ocurrió algo increíble sonó el teléfono de mi casa, mi mujer lo descolgó y casi se cae del susto, al otro lado la voz dijo soy Bobby Fischer, pregunto por mí y mi mujer le dijo que yo estaba en Lion, el pillo un cabreo monumental en Lion dijo gritando siguiendo esa farsa denominada campeonato mundial, ella le transmitió que yo estaba haciendo mi trabajo, Fischer quedo en llamar más adelante.

Entonces llego la propuesta de concretar un matx revancha con Spassky, a través de un magnate catalán llamado Borel.

Hubo una reunión comida entre el magnate, Fischer, Spassky y yo.

Al terminar el primer plato Fischer sacó un tablero y me muestra una posición y me dice conoce usted esta posición, lo hizo para descubrir si yo era ajedrecista, yo conocía la partida era de una I de R variante de los 4 peones que jugó con Pomar en la olimpiada de la Habana, a partir de ese momento Fischer que había estado muy reservado, se muestra más alegre incluso dicharachero.>
