The August July 2017 issue of Chess Life published a previously unknown Bobby Fischer game. Here is the game you can add to your collection.

Two from Yahoo

Tomorrow afternoon I am attending the Orange County Chess Meetup Group. Usually a day or so I play over some old games to enjoy and sharpen my game, but mostly to enjoy them.

Tomorrow I just may play the Italian. So many people now just want to respond 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 with 3..h6?!. Of which the correct response is 4.d4.

So I found a pair of games from when Yahoo! used to let allow chess games on their servers. Both of them were blitz games and I usually do quite well on blitz games.

So here those two games.
