fischer takes all comers

Today at noon Bobby Fischer will be playing a series of concurrent table chess games at the shopping mall down the hill from where I work. Anyone can apparently join in the fun. He's doing it for some badly needed good PR. In my best Waingro voice, I plan to tell him: "Well, I got a few moves I can make."

If Zach DeLaRocha, former lead screamer of Rage Against the Machine were playing, he would be black, of course, move all the pawns as a unified force, and assasinate his own King.

And then he would scream, "Into the Valley of Death Rode the six hundred! Rah!"

Fischer wouldn't have a chance.

What brent said was the funniest thing I have read in months. Kudos to you, sir.

I think, in that situation, I'd have to go down there, play Bobby, and make checkers moves until I got dragged out screaming "King Me! King Me, mother******!"

The best part about it was that the whole story was an April Fool's joke printed as an article in the paper. "Fischer invites nation to chess" said the headline. Fischer recently (and Chezishly) said he was "Done with chess." But he added that, if he were still playing, he would still be the best.

Zach just stares straight ahead at Bobby, unblinking, unmoving. He brings his hands together, parallel with the table and pushes all of the black pieces one square forward.

"Castle this, mother******."

I like the idea of challenging Fischer and getting him to go first, and then just mirroring everything he does. That would really piss him off.

Every beginner in history has tried that mirror move trick and found out that it's a guaranteed win for white.
