Nov-15-08  jerseybob: One of Formanek's numerous grandmaster scalps. Could 18..00 19.Qxf5 have been any worse than what actually happened in the game? Byrne was a loyal "Frenchie" for a long time, but what price loyalty?
Nov-15-08  AnalyzeThis: Byrne was super solid against his fellow GMs, but against masters he occasionally got beat when he tried risky stuff.
Nov-15-08  jerseybob: Analyze: I agree with him being solid against his fellow GMs with one glaring exception: as black in a Winawer he got beaten badly on several occasions. Some of those games are in this database, there may be others.

  kbob: In the early to mid sixties Byrne had phenomenal results with the french, culminating with wins against Fischer and Larsen.

I knew a master from Madison, Wisconsin, who happened to get off to a great start in one of the U.S. Opens, including a win against Byrne. He said with some chagrin that the headline in the New York Times read " 'Unknown' leads U.S. Open Chess Tournament. :-)

Delicious.

Was Byrne then editor of the NYT column, or did that come later?
