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.
jobs are lame, ask woodie.
I think it might be fair to say, much of the rest of the chess playing world probably laughed at and mocked the USCF, until Fischer made them formidable in his day.
...or have a fortune he deserved to make, unjustly taken away?
What bass turds are some of those who interpret and uphold the laws in this country.
Well don't know where you draw those conclusions from.
He '' encouraged '' lot's of American's to take up the game sure & camapaigned worldwide for financial recognition for professional-chess players.
Yet my understanding was the USCF annoyed at him also at the time for not defending his US title ?
(In any case USCF has no great importance except for Americans...)
I think the US should make a gesture for the sake of chess & integrity & re-instate his citizenship posthumously.
If you were wondering where my conclusions came from, I was referring to the 5 million dollar prize Fischer was denied by the US, due to the sanction laws at the time he played his rematch with Spassky. I was also referring to the mockery and laughter of the Soviet chess machine specifically, at our attempts to compete with them on the world stage, until Fischer came along.
every post richard comes up with is worse than the one before. or in his case worst...
Would you rather they all be the same? Anything for you ...
