VEGH, Endre

May-29-20  wordfunph: <Chess is preparation! - I remember well the legendary Bobby Fischer's words. During his stay in Budapest I was lucky to meet him, the first time in a Japanese restaurant. I came with my Argentinian friend GM Gerardo Barbero (who unfortunately died at the age of 39 due to serious illness) and his Hungarian wife Dr Katalin Molnar, who played chess on a hobby level. A sense of excitement ran through me when I was eagerly waiting for this historical moment ... I don't know the exact date, but it was not much earlier than 2000. Fischer was an idol for me, as he was for countless chess fans. I had started to play chess at a club in 1972 during the famous Fischer-Spassky match in Reykjavik. By the time we arrived he was already eating his meat soup (in a loud and energetic manner) and there was a small magnetic chess set on the table. We all were invited - Fischer paid the bill. He was well informed about what was going on in the chess world. Later, his friend GM Torre called me once, telling Fischer needed the latest issue of Chess Informant. Soon I gave the book personally to my most famous buyer. I was fascinated by some of the long and interesting analyses in these periodicals. But Fischer's comment was: 'The computer makes it all!' I was astonished. What was he talking about? Now we all know that the chess world has changed a lot after the appearance of strong engines.
