Bobby Fiske
Member since Oct-09-09 · Last seen Feb-03-23
Once I was young and talented. Now I am neither.

But still a passionate chess fan and amateur player with a few thousand blitz games on Internet. (Peak rating at PlayChess.com is about 1750).

Gratitude: Big thanks to all the GMs who provide us with all these exciting games for free.

Bobby Fiske: <MissScarlett:...I think he also had a reserved room. He could withdraw from the playing hall after every round.> Judging from the TV broadcast, the arena has the usual VIP lounges located on the top floor. I saw several players resting up there, sitting in lounge chairs, ...

Bobby Fiske: < fredthebear: MC retired (temporarily) from in-person chess, not on-line chess.> Spanish nonsense. Magnus is heading the field in Tata Steel Masters, 13-29th January 2023.

Bobby Fiske: <beatgiant> Seems you missed the main point: Ofc 3 games alone, is not enough for statistical measures, but here they are combined with an additional factor: Starting from R4 the move transmission was delayed 15min. Hans' TRP performance dropped 400 when players got ...
 
   Dec-27-21 Carlsen vs Dreev, 2021 (replies)
 
Bobby Fiske: FAMOUS LAST WORDS "Carlsen is not a real chess player. Karjakin plays chess, in contrast to Carlsen. Carlsen waits for his opponent to make a mistake rather than try to outplay him as real chess players do." Aleksey Dreev, 2017
 
   Dec-27-21 Carlsen vs Duda, 2021 (replies)
 
Bobby Fiske: Duda didn't show up on time: Arbiter attempting to start the clock, but Magnus tells him to wait: https://twitter.com/chess24com/stat... (2 rounds earlier, Magnus was late for his game against Alireza Firouzja, who didn't wait starting the clock).

Bobby Fiske: I guess the elephant in the room is <economy>. A major part of the site’s income is Google ads. They are placed all over the forum, generating $$$ based on traffic numbers, and the Rogoff forum is by far the busiest one. The Kibitzer’s Café is the second busiest. ...
 
   Oct-26-19 Wesley So (replies)
 
Bobby Fiske: Fischer Random Chess Semifinals: I'm just back from the opening ceremony here in Norway, where they drew the lots. Wesley will play a minimatch vs Nepomniachtchi, while Magnus drew Caruana as his opponent. First round starts tomorrow. During the dinner banquet I complimented ...

Bobby Fiske: David debuted in Banter Blitz yesterday, streaming live for the first time in his life. This is so funny. He is talking in all languages, making jokes and even singing (terribly) a Beatles song. Such a nice and gifted person! Watch the "show" on YouTube: ...
