Apr-26-09  AnalyzeThis: Well, give Fischer the credit for seeing this, I guess.

  Parsifal2: The Fischer draw is given in Timman´s updated book on the 1972 Fischer-Spassky match. Jan relates how he met Fischer once, in Brussels in 1989 and how Bobby showed 2 pieces of analysis he had done on the plane coming over from the States. The other was an improvement on a key line, very early on, in a game between Ivanchuk and Kasparov from Linares 1989. Timman lamented how many other such snippets of genius must have been lost for ever since Fischer had kept no records of them.

…and break tradition?

Jul-17-14  Tatumart: Ah, a Fischer hater :)) so you doubt Jan?
How sad. But hating Fischer is also a part of the USCF. Although I noticed that USCF Is doing a good business selling Fischer books.
