N. Cline Plane: <731> The posts were fittingly random and belligerent for a thread devoted to Fischer, I thought... I found bobby's web page in japan yesterday, He apparently scans in the emails he receives and posts them. There were lots of emails either ...

N. Cline Plane: I frequently wonder how much cheating is actually going on at the high levels, especially in FIDE competitions. I left a comment at Karpov vs. Yudasin 1988 from an article by GM Nigel Davies - after Yudasin unexpectedly checkmated Karpov, 'the boys' had a talk with Yudasin, ...
   Mar-02-04 Morphy vs Maurian, 1869 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: I thought that after 1858 Morphy nearly always gave odds, especially against Maurian; it seems likely therefore that this is the correct game of the two, although frankly he didn't need the N at all, did he?
   Feb-27-04 Morphy vs Owen, 1858 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: <calli> Thanks, I don't know what I was thinking.
   Feb-27-04 J Thompson vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: Incidentally, through 10 e5, this opening was played the same year with morphy as white against schulten, who lost twice after replying 10...Bg4. after 19 Nh5+ f6, white may have a chance, but not Thompson against Morphy, judging from their other games.
   Feb-03-04 Steinitz vs E Pilhal, 1860 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: Preliminary dissection of the phases of a chess game is bewildering to the novice, not helpful. It is much better, at first, to study complete games, and study opening/midgame/endgame when it seems natural to divide a game into these phases, when the intuition feels the ...
   Dec-22-03 Geller vs Petrosian, 1962 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: The board position or any opening analysis is indeed irrelevant in determining whether the draw was "predestined." As an example, I refer you to Karpov vs. Yudasin 1988 on this website, to which I have appended this quote due to GM Nigel Davies, who was present: "I witnessed ...
   Dec-22-03 Steinitz vs Blackburne, 1876 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: A nice example by both sides of how to use pawns in the Spanish: the rebuffing of black's counterplay attempts in moves 5,6,7; the queenside black pawnstorm; the gamelosing blunder by black (at move 26) turns on pawn pressure too.
   Dec-22-03 Reti vs Tartakower, 1910 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: I think this game should only be studied after a few beers, which is clearly when it was played -
   Dec-13-03 Karpov vs Yudasin, 1988 (replies)
N. Cline Plane: A win for Karpov? -- let me quote from the esteemed GM Nigel Davies's article on Bobby Fischer: "I witnessed one blatant example of Soviet 'pressure' in an active chess qualifier in Gijon, Spain (1988). Leonid Yudashin checkmated Karpov and then, after the boys had a quiet ...
