Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-09  M.D. Wilson: Paul Dirac, who many consider to be the preeminent physicist of the 20th Century, said Oppenheimer should have focused less on poetry and classics and more on physics. His view of physics was a bit mystical and lacked the objective realism of Heisenberg or Pauli, for example, but his genius is unquestionable. He also moved from topic to topic, so he never really focused on any one problem long enough to make Nobel-winning discoveries. However his postulates regarding neutron stars and black holes come pretty close; but, alas, throat cancer claimed his life.
Jun-21-12  backrank: Breyer's opponent was not the scientist, but some obscure 'Colonel' Oppenheimer (as indicated in Ivan Bottlik's book on Breyer). Breyer played this game in a blindsimul on 20 boards.

13. Qf6+!! is a remarkable shot for a blindsim, IMHO. The early attack 8. g4, 9. g5 without castling is typical Breyer (or hypermodern), as it seems.

Jun-21-12  RookFile: So why didn't black play Ba6 in the opening, on move 8 for example. He got himself set up to play it but didn't follow through.
Jun-22-12  backrank: Black didn't have a strategic concept here, as it seems. What he played can hardly be called an opening.
