Pure patzer but I love chess and those who make it beautiful. First memory of chess was watching Shelby Lyman analyze the teletype moves of the Fischer-Spassky match on channel 13 in NY in 1972. I enjoy reading about Fischer and his perplexing, idiosyncratic life, but I don't have a true favorite....all great chess players are Gods to me. Chess could save the world if everyone would learn how to play at least as well as me.....and that's not asking too much.

teddysalad: <LIFE Master AJ: Bobby Fischer on the Dick Cavett show. (It's probably been posted before ...)> Right at the beginning is probably the most poignant comment of his life. "I don't live anywhere actually........I just live in ...

teddysalad: Considering that Morphy was playing blindfolded underwater in a shark tank while a rook down I don't think you can call him to task here as his well known fear of sharks might have taken him off his game.
   Apr-10-13 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
teddysalad: Did Spassky ever comment on why he resigned so early in this game? After losing for the first time ever under unusual circumstances to Fisher in the little ping-pong room in the back in game 3 he played a strong draw against Bobby back in the main hall in game 4; yet here he ...

teddysalad: <AylerKupp: BTW, I don't know if anyone has mentioned it but if the 3-0-1 scoring had been used (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss) Carlsen would have clearly won with 22 points.> If the 3-0-1 point system had been used this thread would only be 70

teddysalad: <AylerKupp> <What a match this would have been between these two fighters! And only 2 years apart in age.> They were 12 years apart in age.

teddysalad: <This is game 48 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>>......Bobby is one tough grader.

teddysalad: The white king was glad when it was over, he was exhausted.
   Aug-05-12 Tal - Botvinnik World Championship Rematch (1961) (replies)
teddysalad: 21 games with only 6 draws. Even 3 of the draws went over 70 moves. Imagine how popular chess would be today with opponents playing to win like this instead of bailing out *cough* Anand-Gelfand *cough* at the earliest discreet opportunity.

teddysalad: Spark objected to the cameras in the room and refused to play.
   May-26-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
teddysalad: <dx9293> What do you think of the idea of forbidding mutually agreed draws in match play? The only draws can be a stalemate or the competitors play until resignation or checkmate. Has that ever been tried before, would the elite players object to it? What are your thoughts ...
