CopyBlanca: I have only one win against a grandmaster and it was the same of the Spanish Game (Ruy Lopez). It was against Peter Biyasis in the 1970's and also a simul. Game went in a similar direction and Peter offered a draw which I should have accepted but being a jerk I

CopyBlanca: I came up with 37 N takes pawn on D6. I think that is pretty good too. as the threat of mate with a B-H6 lurking a few moves down gives black a lot of problems.

CopyBlanca: Why even bother talking about Karpov in the same breath as Fischer. Karpov is not even one of the top ten players of all time. Fischer is never rated lower than third by anyone.

CopyBlanca: You guys are dreaming. Morphy,Greco,Philidor all these guys would take you to the cleaners. Lets just discuss Morphy for a bit. He was able to play multiple blindfold games at once. None of you dreamers could even begin to play a single blindfold game. When I played tournament ...
