Call me Ishmael: <he reason that topalov's victory in san luis probably will not be viewed as legitimate is because neither kasparov nor kramnik participated, while in mexico city, kramnik agreed that the winner would be champion, and he participated, while kasparov was retired.> There
   Jul-26-10 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
Call me Ishmael: <If that were true, every GM would be world champion.> How does understanding chess moves automatically make someone World Champion? Another stupid post by <Petrosianic>.
   Jul-26-10 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Call me Ishmael: <Larsen and Petrosian are interesting because both were heavily influenced by Nimzovich, but each had a different "interpretation". Larsen specialized in risk taking, and Petrosian didn't.> Total BS. How do you know who interpreted what? You have no idea what the hell ...
   Jul-26-10 Fischer vs Robert E Byrne, 1965 (replies)
Call me Ishmael: <The odd thing is that Fischer apparently HAD seen Bd6 a move earlier> How do you know what Fischer saw? Who the hell do you think you are always making these grand pronouncements as if you're all knowing. 99% of the garbage you spew on this site is false. Take your ...
   Jul-26-10 King's Gambit Accepted, Abbazia Defense (C36) (replies)
Call me Ishmael: I agree with <Wassily> and <Eric Schiller>, the Abbazia (Modern) via the Falkbeer move order is Black's best defense to the King's Gambit. Although I still feel 5.Bb5+ gives White a small edge.
   Jul-25-10 King's Gambit Declined, Falkbeer Counter Gambit (C31) (replies)
Call me Ishmael: The King's Gambit is alive and well. There is nothing special about Fischer's line (3..d6), it's sound but not the best way to meet the KG. The Modern Defense (Abbazia) via the Falkbeer Counter Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4 d5 3.exd5 exf4 4.Nf3 Nf6) is the best way to meet 2.f4. ...

Call me Ishmael: <And I still don't see how this hypothetical male Hungarian relative back in 1365 (or whenever it may have been) makes the entire male line Magyar> It doesn't make the male line entirely Magyar only the Y-DNA Magyar. If "Lazlo" is Magyar and his son Jacob is 50% Magyar
   Jul-18-10 Ponomariov vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
Call me Ishmael: <mindCtrol9> I'm not sure I understand your logic. All chess victories are the result of a mistake by the opponent. Why can't you compare this game to the Evergreen or other immortal games? They too were the result of a mistake by the opponent. In this game a seemingly
   Jun-23-10 Lasker - Tarrasch World Championship Match (1908) (replies)
Call me Ishmael: It's also interesting that this match featured the debut of the Chigorin variation of the Ruy Lopez. It had only been uncorked the year before and was Chigorin's last gift to the chess world.

Call me Ishmael: <talisman> IMO it's the best book ever written in the english language. The problem is that many people misunderstand the book and think it's just about whales and whaling, but nothing could be further from the truth. The book is actually about Platonic philosophy and
