|May-19-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Unno, but after 88... Nd7 it's actually mate-in-55.|
|May-19-18|| ||takchess: As my wife and daughter get ready to watch the Royal Wedding , it gives me time to look at this. Woohoo! My first move is correct. A little victory.|
|May-19-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: A critical position:

White now captures the Knight in 9 moves. So from 88... Nd7 it takes 36 (!) forced moves to capture the Knight. Most fascinating.
|May-19-18|| ||Marmot PFL: 30+ years ago when I met Browne he said he was totally winning this game but messed it up (not his exact phrase). Now finally playing it over I see what he meant.|
|May-19-18|| ||njchess: Got this. Upon seeing the complete game, I remembered I had seen it before; a hard fought contest to be sure.|
|May-19-18|| ||agb2002: Black has a knight for a rook.
White threatens Kc6 and Rg7.
This threat suggests 88... Nd7:
A) 89.Kc6 Ne5+
A.1) 90.Kxd6 Nxf7+
A.1.a) 91.Bxf7 h1=Q 92.Be6+ Kb7 93.c8=Q+ (93.Bd5+ Qxd5+ 94.Kxd5 Kxc7 =) 93... Kb6 looks drawing in spite of being a bishop down.
A.1.b) 91.Kc6 Ne5+ 92.Kb6 Nd7+, etc.
A.2) 90.Kb6 Nd7+ 91.Rxd7 (91.Kc6 Ne5+ repeats moves) 91... Kxd7 92.Be6+ Ke7 (92... Kxe6 93.c8=Q+) 93.c8=Q (93.Bd5 Bxc7+ =) 93... h1=Q 94.Qd7+ Kf6 95.Qxd6 Qg1+ followed by Qe3 is probably draw.
B) 89.Be6 Be7
B.1) 90.Rxe7 h1=Q
B.1.a) 91.Rxd7 Qb7+ 92.Kc5 Qxc7+ =.
B.1.b) 91.Bxd7+ Kxc7 92.Bc6+ Kd6 93.Rd7+ Ke6 94.Bxh8 Kxd7 =.
B.2) 90.Bxd7+ Kxd7 91.Rh7 h1=Q (91... Kxc7 92.Rxe7+ and 93.Rh7 + -) 92.Rxh1 Kxc7 =.
C) 89.Bc6 Ne5 90.Rh7 Bxc7 =.
|May-19-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: PS 88. c7 Nd7 89. Rh7 Kxc7 (forced) and now Lomonosov 7 says mate-in-54|
|May-19-18|| ||siggemannen: <Granny O Doul>, wow, thanks, Be7 is really clever. Amazing save by Fischer|
|May-19-18|| ||Jack Kerouac: Walter Browne once said,' Fischer is the God of chess, but I am the Devil!'
True or false?|
|May-19-18|| ||NBZ: Fantastic save from Fischer. In the Be6 line, Be7!! is a fantastic idea, didn't see it at all.|
I thought the solution was 88. ... h1=Q 89. Bxh1 Ne6 but after 90. Bc6! Nxc7 91. Kb6 Kb8 92. Rd7 wins.
|May-19-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <Jack>
Considered that this game goes beyond human logic, I would not be surprized ;)
|May-20-18|| ||JJpro: hello|
|May-20-18|| ||JJpro: The Be7 is a good move|
|Nov-16-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: Didn't Fischer quit high school?
I am certain he did not go to college.
So in my mind, a better pun would be
"Browne versus Bored of Education".
Let me know what you think of it.
|Nov-16-19|| ||MissScarlett: Hmmm, it's a good-un. Even a very good-un. Compared to Jabberwocky schiiit, it's practically genius.|
|Nov-16-19|| ||MissScarlett: <"You don't learn anything in school. It's just a waste of time. You lug around books and all and do homework. They give too much homework. You shouldn't be doing homework. Nobody's interested in it. The teachers are stupid. They shouldn't have any women in there. They don't know how to teach. And they shouldn't make anyone go to school. You don't want to go, you don't go, that's all. It's ridiculous. I don't remember one thing I learned in school. I don't listen to weakies [Bobby's term for non- chess players or for chess players who are weaker than himself]. My two and a half years in Erasmus High I wasted. I didn't like the whole thing. You have to mix with all those stupid kids. The teachers are even stupider than the kids. They talk down to the kids. Half of them are crazy. If they'd have let me, I would have quit before I was sixteen." >|
|Nov-16-19|| ||OhioChessFan: Hard to believe such an enlightened citizen ended up a sad and lonely racist...|
|Nov-16-19|| ||MissScarlett: Just a pity he never found The Kibitzer's Café.|
|Nov-16-19|| ||Granny O Doul: Browne was a fellow dropper-out of Erasmus.|
|Nov-16-19|| ||HeMateMe: I think Erasmus High was closed and torn down several years ago. Huge high school--4,000 kids? You'd think a school that large in Brooklyn would need to have a police station built in the basement. Jes sayin'...|
|Nov-17-19|| ||Granny O Doul: Thought I'd made a comment, but it didn't post....oh well. Anyway, "Erasmus Hall" as such was declared a failed school in 1994 (raising the question--can its failed students have their records expunged? Seems only fair), but the complex is still up (broken up into several 'brand new' schools, à la the familiar charade), most notably the original building of 1786.|

I liked the first one, about Nimzo. After that it was all down hill.
|Nov-17-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: <OhioChessFan: Hard to believe such an enlightened citizen ended up a sad and lonely racist...>|
But not an anti-Semite! As Fischer himself pointed out, "I don't hate Arabs".
(This post was meant as humor, so please let's not get into an argument about racism. Thanks in advance.)
|Nov-17-19|| ||MissScarlett: <As Fischer himself pointed out, "I don't hate Arabs".>|
Well, to be fair, he'd never lived among Arabs.
|Jan-10-20|| ||ACMEKINGKRUSHER: HAPPY BIRTHDAY WALTER!
Still a FAN and will be!
