Chesspooljuly i agree with your statement about computers
Don't criticize the splinter in your brother's eye til you've removed the log from your own eye (or something like that.)
Why would anyone criticise a splinter in someone's eye? Wouldn't it be far more germane to help them remove it? I mean, that sort of thing can get infected, and then there are a whole host of dangers associated with that.
And how does anyone even fit a log in their own eye? This saying makes ZERO sense.
And he knocks it out the park!
I read that Fischer instantly memorized games and after tournaments/matches he could recount all of his games with 100% accuracy. If this is true, even though Kasparov did all of this research and computer use, wouldn't Fischer's talent allow him to surpass Kasparov if he had the same access to computers, since he'd have even more stored in his mind?
There was a BBC documentary in the 80s that stated Kasparov has a photographic memory and that he can recall every game he has ever played move by move.This Beethoven Mozart thing is a bit of a loose analogy, can I just suggest that Fischer is Peanut Butter and that Kasparov is Jelly? Can anyone argue that? Its very self evident.
Morphy was bananas.
Yeah but Pillsbury took the cake...
worst post ever
Worst post ever would probably be when it's molded or something...
"The consensus is that Capablanca used a computer"
I've always supected as much. Even his name sounds like a computer progam.
OMG. Computers didn't even exist back then. lol Capablanca played in the early 1900's. He died before computers were even invented. My guess is that we'll be talking about Carlsen being the greatest of all time, in a few years though. But yeah, Kasparov over Fischer, because of the advances of theory, chess computers and because Fischer wouldn't have showed up for the match. lol
Are you sure about that?
I thought it was pretty funny. lol Maybe you didn't get it. It was a joke.
What am I supposed to say each time...wow...I have out done myself again?....that would get as boring as hearing...that is the worst post ever...
I've seen games he has played since his death...
and Elvis and I shared the same money...
What's sad is how Bobby Fischer got all of us older Americans into chess and how we all looked up to him as an idol when we were kids, only to find out later that he was an insane racist. After watching some documentary videos of Bobby, I lost all respect for the man. He was very self-centered, had no social skills, was a loner, a racist and a conspiracy nut case. All he could do was play chess. I don't think he ever held a real job in his entire life. So if they ever do get to play each other, beyond the grave, Go Kasparov !!!
America made Fischer what he became
You couldn't be more wrong.
Fischer was not a person most people could tolerate. However he was a genius at chess and either he or Kasporov are the greatest or best player ever.
Hard to compare him against Karparov as Kasparov had the data bases and chess playing computers plus others helping him and he was a genius with these helps.
Fisher was a genius without these helps--on his own - so are you going to have Kasparov play Fischer without his helps or are you going to have Fischer play Kasparov with these helps?
With both having the helps Kasparov wins. With both "on their own" Fishcher wins.
Is being a world class grandmaster a real job?
So any extremists, traitors, racists or undesirables we find within our countries or federations should have their passports taken away & be disowned ?
( But let's retain acclaim for any sporting-successes achieved by them as a national-triumph. )
It's a hell of a lot of work, anyway.
We need more amateurs to post their annotated games.
