   May-07-23 Manila (1973)
Allanur: Was Fischer publicly invited into this tournament? if so, what pre-text has he given to decline this event? A year earlier, Fischer stated that the prize fund of San Antonio 1972 was too low for him to participate, what about this one? Also, during this visit tournament that Fischer
   Mar-03-23 Spassky - Larsen Candidates Semifinal (1968) (replies)
Allanur: <Larsen did a good job not answering the question, or rather gave the poor organization and prize funds experienced by <both> players as the reason for his loss. Not convincing.> But that would have affected Larsen more than it would have affected Spassky. After all, ...
   Feb-18-23 Karpov - Timman FIDE World Championship Match (1993)
Allanur: Here is how that Gligorich match proceeded (and failed), compiled from Gligorich's interview he gavein Antwerp in 1989 and other contemporary newspaper reports: At first Fischer was keen to play but he was negotiating everything as privately as possible. Yugoslavs were granting him ...
   Feb-18-23 Spassky vs Botvinnik, 1970
Allanur: Preposterous style of Spassky always made me his fan. This game is one of those examples. At 16.Nc5 for example could lead to tripled pawn - something we would try to avoid but it is Spassky, he just plays it. 20.Na4 could end with the opponent winning pawn back as well as locating ...
   Jul-30-22 Fischer vs Larsen, 1971 (replies)
Allanur: Bobby Fischer on this game: "we started our first game and around the 10th move he threw something at me. He figured to catch me by surprise. But when I looked at the position, I remembered it was something that Steinitz had tried against Lasker in the 1894 championship match. If I
   Jan-13-22 Second Piatigorsky Cup (1966) (replies)
Allanur: Yes, Willibob. I do agree that other non-Soviet player fared worse than Fischer did against the Soviets. But what makes Fischer's case different than theirs is: 1) Fischer had been asserting that he is the best frequently, yet failed. 2) Fischer, by many, is considered the best ever
   Jan-10-22 Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Match (1978) (replies)
Allanur: Moreover, I believe, Korchnoi should have demanded that he is not gonna play unless his family is released from the Soviet Union. Karpov won the title by defeault and if he was to 'defend' his title by default, the world simply would not have accepted him second time by default. The
   Jan-05-22 Boris Spassky (replies)
Allanur: @beatgiant, I even forgot he was a world Champion.It seems, as far as I know, he is on the side of Spassky and Smyslov
   Dec-21-21 Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 (replies)
Allanur: Fischer called 1.e4 the best. So, why not call 1e4 a6 line as "Best opening - Incorrect defense"? :-) Btw, Spassky was not the white side in the opening he named - nor was Karpov the black side in the defense he named ;)
   Dec-21-21 Geller vs Gligoric, 1970
Allanur: Geller was awarded the best game by a Soviet player prize for this game. The RotW equivalent went to Larsen's victory over Stein. Though I would say Spassky's victory over Larsen should have been awarded the brilliancy prize.
