00:00 Hello Everyone!

Havana (1965)
The 4th Capablanca Memorial International Chess Tournament was held in the capital city of Havana in Cuba. Eighteen grandmasters and six masters participated in the round-robin event at the Habana Libre hotel from August 25 to September 26, 1965. It was one of the best-funded tournaments at the time, due to Ché Guevara’s patronage. As the director of the Cuban National Bank and Minister of Industry, he guaranteed a $3000 first prize with more than $4500 to be dispersed among the next five finishers. This edition of the memorial gained worldwide significance because it was the first international tournament in which Bobby Fischer would be participating since the Curacao Candidates (1962), more than three years before. He had agreed to attend for a $3000 appearance fee, but difficulties arose when the US State Department refused him a visa to travel to Cuba. When Fischer suggested playing by telex from the Marshall Chess Club, the organizers agreed although it would end up costing them over $10,000. Although Fischer had been playing regularly in US championships in the intervening three years (and winning them all), this tournament would mark the first time Fischer would be facing a number of the strongest Soviet grandmasters since his accusations against them for conspiring to keep him from winning the Candidates Tournament to challenge Botvinnik in 1963. Fischer’s main Soviet rivals at this event were former world champion Vasily Smyslov, Efim Geller and Ratmir Kholmov.

Borislav Ivkov led for most of the tournament, but suffered a tragic collapse at the end. In the penultimate round, with a won game against the tailender Garcia, he blundered and had to resign. In the last round, with White against Robatsch, he played for a win, but lost again. This enabled Smyslov to finish first by one-half point, despite losing to Fischer in their individual game. Fischer shared second place with Geller and Ivkov. Kholmov joined the top finishers in fifth place.

    2016 WCC – This is relevant to the 2023 WCC.

    Please agad cover the other decisive game of the Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen 2016 WCC #suggestion

    What happened is that Magnus lost to Sergey AS WHITE in Game 8 but then compensated for a white loss with A WHITE WIN in Game 10. This is what happened to Liren Ding & Nepo for Games 2 & 4 of 2023 WCC.

    Why doesn't a drawn match go to the player w/ more black wins (if any) s.t. Sergey Karjakin not Magnus Carlsen is 2016 WCC & Ian Nepomniachtchi not Liren Ding is 2023 WCC?

    This has happened BEFORE!

    2022 Accentus Chess960

    Vincent Keymer and Nodirbek Abdusattorov both finished with 5.0/7 and tied first. However, as Keymer won more games with Black, he won the tournament on tiebreak.

    It wasn't repeated! The premise was the same! Hübner had more black wins than Smyslov before tiebreaks. After tiebreaks were tied, a ROULETTE determined Symslov won!!

    Agad, what's your opinion of FIDE's use of the terms 'slow rapid' & 'fast rapid' please in WFRCC?

    It's a conspiracy against Wesley So.

    Afaik:

    (0,10) is blitz.

    [10,60) is rapid.

    [60,120) is unrated classical.

    [120,infinity) is rated classical.

    So what's 'slow rapid'?

    Try to check out the maths here – they said both 32.5min & 60min are 'slow rapid'. Does this strike you as odd?

    I see only 2 possible definitions for slow & fast rapid.

    Def 1 – slow rapid means unrated classical [60,120) and fast rapid is rapid [10,60).

    –> this means Wesley So is not classical WFRCC but slow rapid WFRCC while Hikaru is fast rapid WFRCC.

    Def 2 – slow rapid & fast rapid cut up rapid [10,60) into resp [35,60) and [10,35).

    –> 2 issues here. 60min is not in either of these. Also, 32.5 is in [10,35). So neither 60 nor 32.5 are slow rapid. Lol. Wesley So is again classical WFRCC while Hikaru is (fast) rapid WFRCC.

    Def3 –> Since 15+2=17 is fast rapid, [10,X) is fast rapid & [X,120) is slow rapid for some 17 < X < 32.5. like say X is some arbitrary number like X=20 or X=30. Lol yeah right!!

  2. My First time to feel free to pause the video and actually win the game :"D

  3. Heinz Lehmann: "The Fischer speaks for himself."

  4. Rc1 is such a temptation, if you don't see Black's clincher.

  5. That final move was brutal. Love these old tournaments, keep it coming.

  6. Not really a fan of fischer’s chess, but his personality was great

  7. Why does it seem easy to spot the moves in the video but not in the actual game lmao

  8. People who knows basic endgames wouldn't have played Rc1… Can't believe a master level player would miss a simple trick such as this one… Capablanca was right, we all need to at least know the basic of the endgames… Lol

  9. these thumbnails with the food on the head are priceless

  10. Stockfish should have been named Stockfisch

  11. I spotted the winning Rgxa5 move within a very few seconds. What a proud moment.

  12. it seems like Bobby Fischer had contact with Aliens..
    like acquiring superior talent from Extra Terrestrials..
    he was way ahead of his time..

  13. Y u not making daily videos.. The day never ends without watching your video…❤

  14. Magnus Carlsen is also a big Fischer fan.❤
    Because Fischer is one of the greatest chess players of all time.🔥

  16. Nothing like a Bobby Fischer game for a bit of inspiration

  17. Could've gone for real stockfish on the thumbnail. Disappointed with this raw fish bullshit.

  18. Bobby’s genius at chess without the aid of digital technology was unparalleled in the post Morphy era. However you also have to remember that he spoke of books as something that ruined chess as well as computers. The overall weight of theory was his complaint, not just engines

  19. I found correctly Rook capture on a5

  20. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    Suppose Fischer was resurrected to talk about Niemann – What would Bobby say? I think of …

    This was on 2022Oct21 at 08:30am GMT+8, 6 hours after Hans' 'My lawsuit speaks for itself.'

    (6 parts)

    1

    Mercado: We have for today's episode one of our friends we used to interview every now and then but was dead for the last 8 and a half years. We have the 1972 World Chess Champion and honourary 0th World Fischer Random Chess Champion Bobby Fischer. He’s here right now and would like to give some thoughts on Hans Niemann's lawsuit against Magnus Carlsen, Hikaru Nakamura and I think chessc*m too, right? Good evening. It’s morning right here.

    Fischer: Yeah, how are you doing – sure Pablo. Yes, well, this is all wonderful news. It’s time for f Magnus Carlsen to get his head kicked in. It’s time to finish off Magnus Carlsen once and for all. This just shows you that what goes around comes around, even for Magnus Carlsen. That is what has happened this morning.

    I applaud the act. Look. Nobody gets… Magnus Carlsen & FIDE have been cheating for years. Robbing and cheating. Nobody gave a s. Now it’s coming back. F Magnus Carlsen. I wanna see Magnus Carlsen found liable and banned.

    2

    Mercado: Heh heh. All right. Magnus Carlsen is a world chess champion, how could…

    Fischer: Well, apparently he's not as much of a world champion as everybody thought. My favourite player and compatriot and your former compatriot Wesley So had become inaugural world Fischer random chess champion by winning all these games, and Magnus Carlsen had no wins in that tournament. That was the inaugural world championship finals, Pablo. Probably hundreds of players had competed for that. How is it possible “the great Magnus Carlsen” didn’t get a single win against Wesley So?

    3

    Mercado: Yeah, that’s what people had been asking in the US and here in the Philippines. Considering that Magnus was and still is the world chess champion, wouldn’t he be able to, you know Gasai, beat Wesley So once…

    Fischer: I’m hoping for some kind of scenario where FIDE will be taken over by Andrii Baryshpolets. Chessc*m will be taken over by Thibault Duplessis, they’ll get rid of all the classical regular chess tournaments, ban Hikaru Nakamura from twitch, sanction Garry Kasparov & Magnus Carlsen and you know Gasai, Garry Kasparov will apologize to Judit Polgar & Viswanathan Anand, and Magnus Carlsen will apologize to Alexandra Kosteniuk, Alireza Firouzja, Daniel Naroditsky & Ian Nepomniachtchi. I’m hoping for a totally new world.

    How many hundreds or thousands of players did Magnus Carlsen cheat while streaming? Justifying it with the most ridiculous excuse that he was drunk. When they were still money tournaments and violating chessc*m policy or lichess policy.

    Magnus Carlsen & FIDE are based on lies. They're based on theft.

    Magnus Carlsen cheated Alexandra Kosteniuk, Alireza Firouzja, Daniel Naroditsky & Ian Nepomniachtchi. Garry Kasparov cheated Judit Polgar & Viswanathan Anand. Cheated almost all of the superGMs.

    FIDE robbed the world chess championship from Viswanathan Anand, Sergey Karjakin, Fabiano Caruana & Ian Nepomniachtchi. Robbed almost all of the superGMs. Had these rapid tiebreaks instead of classical Fischer random or classical armageddon with auction and let Magnus Carlsen cheat. Am I right?

    4

    Mercado: So, what do you think’s going to happen in the next 24 hours, then?

    Fischer: Well, you know Gasai, Magnus Carlsen is bellowing. He’s told what to say, of course, by FIDE and his lawyers.

    Magnus Carlsen & FIDE just will not do what they have to do.

    FIDE has to say 'we’re sorry', 'our whole tournament format has been wrong for the last several decades', 'we are going to start having classical Fischer random', 'we are going to sanction Magnus Carlsen & Garry Kasparov for cheating', and so on.

    Magnus Carlsen has to say 'I’m sorry', 'I've been cheating players for the last decade', 'I'm a TALENTLESS patzer', 'I don't deserve to be the main FIDE world champion anymore than Sergey Karjakin, Fabiano Caruana, Ian Nepomniachtchi or Wesley So' and so on.

    You see?

    And he’s not going to admit that. No. He’s going to say “This cheater”, “This cowardly lawsuit will be punished.” You know Gasai, and I expect soon that Sergey Karjakin's parallel pure Fischer Random federation will take off, where Magnus Carlsen will still be, hundreds of feet underneath – heh – Wesley So & Ian Nepomniachtchi and will be saying, “This dastardly chess variant of Bobby Fischer will be never take off!” He’ll just constantly talk about “this cheater Hans Niemann” until Magnus Carlsen is found liable.

    Magnus Carlsen & FIDE are not going to be reasonable. They're not going to admit that they're the bad guys, and they've always been the bad guys. They were the bad guys in the 2016 WCC versus Sergey Karjakin. They were the bad guys in the 2018 WCC versus Fabiano Caruana. They were the bad guys when Magnus Carlsen cheated Alireza Firouzja in the 2019 blitz WCC. 'Gens una sumus' is just a load of bull. It's just a cover for the criminal nature of the International Magnus Chess-en Federation.

    This is just the beginning, Pablo. Everybody’s had enough s from Magnus Carlsen & FIDE.

    5

    Mercado: You think Hans Niemann is planning something else?

    Fischer: Yeah, well, sure, sure. What about Wesley So & Ian Nepomniachtchi? What if they decide to throw in their lot with Hans Niemann, right? What about Sergey Karjakin, Alireza Firouzja, Daniel Naroditsky, Viswanathan Anand, Judit Polgar & Alexandra Kosteniuk?

    It’s time for Magnus Carlsen to eat the s, to humble himself to withdraw his minions back to Norway. To admit that he's been cheating, is a baseless accuser, a sore loser and thus a hypocrite. Otherwise, Magnus Carlsen has to be found liable and be banned.

    – Look what Magnus Carlsen did to Alireza Firouzja recently in the 2019 blitz WCC. Talked on Alireza Firouzja's turn without offering a draw.

    – Look what Garry Kasparov did to Viswanathan Anand previously in 1995 WCC. Slammed the door on Viswanathan Anand's turn.

    – Look what Magnus Carlsen did to Ian Nepomniachtchi recently in 2021 WCC. Touched a knight but didn't move it.

    – Look what Garry Kasparov did to Judit Polgar previously in 1994 Linares tournament. Let go of a knight but moved it somewhere else.

    – Look what Magnus Carlsen did to Alexandra Kosteniuk previously in 2009 blitz WCC. Touched 1 rook but tried to move another.

    Now to me, those 'bullying cheating' incidents worse than 'engine cheating'. You know Gasai why?

    6

    Mercado: Why?

    Fischer: Pareto principle. Anyone can engine cheat. Only world chess champions / top players can bully cheat. You understand?

    Mercado: Yes, I do.

    Fischer: To me that’s worse. The bullying cheating Magnus Carlsen & Garry Kasparov did to Judit Polgar, Viswanathan Anand, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Alireza Firouzja, Daniel Naroditsky & Ian Nepomniachtchi is worse than engine cheating. Really.

    I say death to Play Magnus, chessc*m & FIDE! I say ban Magnus Carlsen! F Magnus Carlsen! F Hikaru Nakamura! F Garry Kasparov! F Arkady Dvorkovich! F Danny Rensch!

    Magnus Carlsen & Garry Kasparov are bullying cheaters. They bully their opponents. They're cheating, criminal, thieving, lying bastards.

    Magnus Carlsen made up the beads theory. There’s not a word of truth to it. He is the worst liar and bastard. Now what goes around comes around. He's getting it back, finally. Praise God and, you know, hallelujah. This is a wonderful day. F Magnus Carlsen. Cry, you crybaby! Whine, you bastard! Now your time is coming.

    –> this means Wesley So is not classical WFRCC but slow rapid WFRCC while Hikaru is fast rapid WFRCC.

    Def 2 – slow rapid & fast rapid cut up rapid [10,60) into resp [35,60) and [10,35).

    –> 2 issues here. 60min is not in either of these. Also, 32.5 is in [10,35). So neither 60 nor 32.5 are slow rapid. Lol. Wesley So is again classical WFRCC while Hikaru is (fast) rapid WFRCC.

    Def3 –> Since 15+2=17 is fast rapid, [10,X) is fast rapid & [X,120) is slow rapid for some 17 < X < 32.5. like say X is some arbitrary number like X=20 or X=30. Lol yeah right!!
