Mar-10-12  Memethecat: Hey LTJ a bit of privacy. I think the cman saga is making progress, when you told him on your forum that there was something fishy about his analysis he pretended he didn't know what you meant, I've seen him do that many times. On last Sundays POTD page I told him straight out that he was cheating so he could not make the pretence. A lot was said & I left it there. Then nemenistic called him out mid-week, again no response. But the following day he got a POTD wrong, a very rare thing. So maybe its sinking in, more & more people are noticing. Personally I think a lot of people already know or suspect but just ignore it. I'm starting to think that's a good idea, but I'm pissed at this guy. Because he got everything right I was asking for his help when I started, not realizing he was cheating.
Mar-10-12  LoveThatJoker: <Memethecat> Thanks for your note, man.

Let me start by saying that this is a magnificent game. Lots of action and intrigue in this one. It's really instructive to see how Fischer sacs his N for 2 pawns in order to abate the attack. There is a game you must see that has a similar kind of idea - in this case it is an exchange sac to lessen the attack. Check it out: Larsen vs Petrosian, 1966

I gave you some props on that game btw, through the inclusion of a link to this game.


PS. As it regards the matter you brought up here on this page, I am in agreement.

  Penguincw: An even score against Fischer. Not bad. Fischer didn't seem to have much of an attack in this game anyways.

Fischer scored +49=4-1.

Jun-29-16  offramp: I'm airways baffled by people like William Wagenhals who are obviously very strong players but have just a couple of games available.

I suppose they were just extremely strong amateurs.

  perfidious: <offramp> In the pre-computer era, there are a great many players who are underrepresented; it is always a pleasure to come across games from other sources and submit them.

Wasn't he busy working on the Encyclopedia with Funk?
