   Nov-23-13 J Penrose vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
Organizer: Given Tal's health problems, and the lack of attention the Soviets gave them, it's a wonder he was able to accomplish what he did. He also didn't help himself by smoking excessively and not living a healthier life style. But, he is one of the top 5 GMs in my book, in terms of ...
 
   Aug-16-12 Rossolimo vs P Reissmann, 1967 (replies)
 
Organizer: I knew Rossolimo. He ran a chess studio in Greenwich Village, NY in the 1960s. He was a wonderful guy, and had many grandmasters visit the studio, including Bobby Fischer. Rossolimo died way before his time in a tragic fall on a stairway.

Organizer: Jessicafischerqueen: concerning Rossolimo. If memory serves, I believe his mother was Parisian and his father Greek. He was an immigrant to the U.S. and was an accomplished actor as well as grandmaster at chess. He was tall, thin, handsome and had a full head of dark hair with ...
 
   Jan-02-11 Rossolimo vs Livingstone, 1961 (replies)
 
Organizer: Rossolimo had a chess studio in Greenwich Village in the 1960s, and I sometimes played against him with several other people in simultaneous games. Bobby Fischer once came into the studio to pick up some boards and pieces. Rossolimo was a warm, cultured and very decent man. He ...
 
   Jul-21-10 Leko vs A Romero Holmes, 1994 (replies)
 
Organizer: Somethings wrong here. Unless white ran out of time, black wins.
 
   Apr-20-06 Akopian vs Kasparov, 2002 (replies)
 
Organizer: I must be missing something because after 27. Qxf8+ Kxf8 there is no check with Ne5 on white's 28th move, and without that why does Kasparov resign?
 
   Apr-03-06 Tal vs Golombek, 1958 (replies)
 
Organizer: Tal proves again and again that he was one of the most imaginative and biggest risk takers in the chess game. He might have had a better record if he was more conservative but chess would have not had gems like this one.
 
   Mar-26-06 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
 
Organizer: Kasparov is imo the greatest chess champion ever considering the quality of his victories, the quality of his opponents (human & computers) and the quantity of years he not only endured but prevailed. Karpov, Fischer, Lasker are runner-ups.
 
   Mar-26-06 Geller vs A Z Kapengut, 1971 (replies)
 
Organizer: Geller's positional play was superb! If ... BxQ, then Bd4x! Then all black can do is block at g7 with the B or R. Either leaves a mating play by white's remaining rook.
 
   Mar-22-06 Tal vs E Nievergelt, 1959 (replies)
 
Organizer: Tal may not have been the greatest player to ever be World Chess Champion (Kasparov has that honor) but his games are always a sense of adventure and a joy to behold!
