  kevin86: Ensnared-(sounds like a George W Bush word to me. Mr Bush does little for the country,but he does widen my vocabulary.)

Mr. Fischer placed a cruel trap and black's queen fell into it.

Nov-03-04  Knight13: Never knew this game came to "The game of the Day."
Nov-03-04  ragnar0C: kevin

like "misunderestimate", other srupid comments called bushisms in my chess club, are " of course it is a budget, it has a lot of numbers in it" and "the reason i beliave in a large tax cut, because its what i believe"

Nov-03-04  drchess9999: looks like he got 270

  mahmoudkubba: Is it by saying N-snared means NN falls in the trap or Ficher himself?? please tell me because I messed up???? i did not got the phrase??
Nov-03-04  Saruman: <aw1988>I think the pun has to do with the trapped queen...
Nov-03-04  Stonewaller2: "N-snared" = "ensnared", also close to "N-squared," which could be written "NN"? I think it's NN who's (en-, or N-) snared. If I were NN I think I'd fess up. "Hey I played Fischer when and look how he annihilated me, pretty cool, huh?" Of course, Bobby was like, what, fourteen in 1959? Sit down across the board from some kid of either gender and one thing's sure, even if you win, you lose.
Nov-03-04  Stonewaller2: btw "ensnared" is a perfectly fine English word. "you could look it up" as Yogi Berra might say. try after "en prise" and before "Euwe."

Not to split hairs, but Fischer was 16 for most of 1959 (his birthday being March 9).

Nov-03-04  thesonicvision: I demonstrated this one to the
ERAU chess club. A nice queen trap.
Nov-03-04  fgh: Hehe, I sended this game, you should thanks me :)
Nov-04-04  Stonewaller2: Thanks, <Eggman>, I coulda looked it up as well. But the point was he wasn't shaving every day. Not that he is now you understand . . .
Feb-13-06  MorphyMatt: The trapper became the trapped!
Apr-24-07  chessamateur: NN gets Fischer-ized!
Jan-22-08  frank124c: Great Queen trap! I've been studying Fischer's games for the last couple of days since his untimely demise and I now see that many of Fischer's moves are hard to see at first but once you study the moves he made, you say to yourself, "Why couldn't I see that!"
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: moral: do not bring the queen out early
Oct-06-09  lorem ipsum: Great trap, and he makes it look easy.
Nov-03-09  Garech: NN falls into the fairly well-known Magnus Smith Trap. Did this game definitely take place, or was is it a demonstration of Fischer's work in this line? It's widely known that he did a lot of study on this trap. 8 .. Nh5 is the blunder, black is relatively okay before that, but afterwards he is up a particular creek minus a paddle.
Nov-03-09  AnalyzeThis: First time I've seen this. Interesting!
Nov-03-09  Cercatore: God save the queen... please!!!
