   Feb-21-12 Paul Morphy (replies)
 
ARubinstein: Believe me, it's a complete waste of time arguing with the "most talented ever" fundamentalists who act as though they can prove their case (regardless of which chess hero they adopt). All too often Morphy is their religion and Fischer their prophet. A rational, measured ...

ARubinstein: a true innovator and pioneer in chess openings.
 
   Jul-28-11 Shirov vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
ARubinstein: <LIFE Master AJ: Insane. How does a 2700+ player lose with the White pieces?> Absolutely shocking. I guess there's a first for everything...
 
   Jul-27-11 Fine vs Keres, 1938 (replies)
 
ARubinstein: <Legend: Keres once said that this is the best game he ever played.> Where did you read that? I feel this game is a bit overrated. It was of enormous significance for the tournament, of course, and it's an interesting game, but for me this doesn't rank among Keres' top ...
 
   May-26-11 World Championship Candidates Final (2011) (replies)
 
ARubinstein: People calling Anand-Gelfand a "mismatch" or a "cake walk for Anand" don't know what they're talking about. It will be a close and competitive match. Gelfand excels in match preparation and is much more dangerous in matches than tournaments. Gelfand is also one of the only ...

ARubinstein: Congratulations Gelfand!!!
 
   May-23-11 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
ARubinstein: <fab4: Gazza has forever to 'big' Karpov up... Otherwise his career in chess is less impactful.> <fab4: I'm sorry. But you read Kasparov.. and make your own conclusions .. lol> I'm sorry, but look at Kasparov's career results -- tournament, match, and head-to-head ...
 
   May-12-11 S Minero Pineda vs A J Goldsby, 2003 (replies)
 
ARubinstein: No, that was just one example.. I'm not just referring to that one "very vague paragraph" -- most of the paragraphs in that review were informative and helpful. I agree with you and Jim that it gets irritating that he needs to write so much about himself at the start of the ...
 
   May-12-11 Kamsky vs Gelfand, 2011 (replies)
 
ARubinstein: <tamar: The nightlife in Kazan must be too tempting.> lol
 
   May-12-11 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2011 (replies)
 
ARubinstein: One can't fault Grischuk for his strategy. If Kramnik doesn't win in the classical stage, Grischuk will have a much higher chance of advancing. In blitz I think he'll be the slight favorite.
