Comment by player 1 : Elmer Valderrama :

After winning some games with White (and losing some others
with Black, -fortunately I could save one as Black recently
at iecg- I am pretty much convinced that the Benoni is
unplayable by Black if winning is the goal.

In the Over-The-Board (OTB) practice it could be a good choice,
but in CC this is just too simple: Black
never achieves equality -even if the engines give evaluations
as low as +0.00 in multi-line analysis in the middle-game,
effectively "engine equality".

Point is Black can easily go from inferior to lost
even after doing all that should be done (mostly Fischer's ideas
and of some other Russian players of such calibre).

This game is proving that point one more time.

Nonsense was the last thing Fischer was interested in, as far as Chess was concerned. (Elie Agur)

Dein Körper muss in Topform sein. Dein Schach verfällt, wenn dein Körper verfällt. Der Körper kann nicht vom Geist getrennt werden. (Robert James Fischer)

Todo se encuentra en un estado de flujo y esto incluye al mundo del Ajedrez. (Mikhail Botvinnik)

Les Echecs sont affaire de jugement sensible. Savoir quand frapper et quand esquiver. (Fischer)

The modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected. (G.K. Chesterton)
