Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-05  ughaibu: Looks like Fischer was involved in the Curacao drawing conspiracy too. Incidentally, now I see who he got his Qa3 from.
May-25-05  aw1988: Rubinstein?
Aug-03-05  RookFile: 19. b4 was a better move than Qxc5.

In the final position, Fritz says black has a slight edge with ....a5.

Aug-18-05  who: <ugahaibu> it is certainly noteworthy that Petrosian drew this game whereas Fischer won his against Spassky.
Aug-18-05  RookFile: The only problem with Fischer being involved with the Curacoa drawing conspiracy is, it's not true. On the other hand, ask Fischer or Korchnoi, who where there, and they both say the same thing. Karpov also says that Keres, Geller and Petrosian prearranged 3 draws, "but with draws you cannot win the tournament".
Aug-19-05  ughaibu: RookFile: which were the three "prearranged" draws?
Aug-19-05  iron maiden: <RookFile>, why should we trust Fischer and Korchnoi's word over Keres, Geller and Petrosian's?
Aug-23-05  ARTIN: Fischer, Korchnoi are not really credible sources now, are they! On the other hand, we know that Petrosian for example, was a very honest chessplayer both on and off the board. Many times he made draws when he evaluated the position to be a dead draw when his (weaker) opponents thought they were losing.

  ray keene: black is just better here when they agreed the draw-but i suggest everyone looks at the final positions of the other petrosian v fischer draws from curacao 1962-in one petrosian was in my opinion much better when they stopped while in the other-where petrosian was black in a sicilian, timmans new book on curacao claims that petrosian was virtually winning!! a curious parallel to fischers accusation that petrosian agreed a draw v keres in a winning position from the same event-which timman also endorses. it really does look as if fischer was part of a conspiracy too-but of course it cant be possible-but do look at the games!!
