   Aug-12-23 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
Saul Goodman: Kudos to Donald Byrne for not resigning.
   Jun-23-23 Korchnoi vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
Saul Goodman: <scutigera> “If that's not enough for you, Fischer fans, consider that Bobby spent a much smaller proportion of his life at his peak ability than Korchnoi did.” Fischer was basically the best in the world from age 20 until he stopped playing ten years later. Korchnoi ...
   Jun-23-23 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
Saul Goodman: <sorrowstealer: I never understood why Kasparov said this games as old man's chess. > At the time Kasparov wrote the Fischer book, there were really only two candidates for best player ever, Fischer and Kasparov. Accordingly, Garry spends a good deal of effort trying to ...
   Jun-11-23 Maroczy vs Tartakower, 1922
Saul Goodman: According to Jeff Sonas’ research, Geza Maroczy was the best player in the world during the period of 1905-1906, and was still a top ten player at the time of this game, although he was 52 years old.
   Jun-05-23 Reshevsky vs Capablanca, 1935 (replies)
Saul Goodman: On the issue of Casablanca’s supposed “decline,” it should be noted that, according to Jeff Sonas’ research, Capablanca returned to number 1 in the world in May, 1937, and stayed there for several months.
   May-22-23 Botvinnik vs Portisch, 1968 (replies)
Saul Goodman: Kasparov’s books detail a number of occasions where Botvinnik acted dishonorably in chess matches. My favorite example is during the World Championship tournament of 1948 when Max Euwe’s notebooks containing his opening research disappeared from his hotel room for the ...
   May-22-23 Tal vs Hjartarson, 1987
Saul Goodman: This game was played over 25 years after Tal lost his Championship crown.
   May-19-23 Spassky vs Tal, 1973
Saul Goodman: Fischer dropped out of the World Championship cycle after the Soviets cheated at the 1962 Curaçao Candidates Tournament. He was 19 years old and still developing as a player. After the 1966 Piatagorsky Cup tournament, when Fischer as 23 years old, he literally won every ...
   May-15-23 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1954
Saul Goodman: Botvinnik cheated throughout his career. Of course he assumed that other players cheated too. I think the accusation is all you need to know about Botvinnik’s character.
   Jan-07-23 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
Saul Goodman: That draw against Uitumen is significant, because it was the last time anyone got a draw off Bobby until the Candidates match against Petrosian. He proceeded to win 20 straight games against top players including 6-0 match wins against Taimonov and Larsen.
