   Oct-16-15 Fischer vs Ivkov, 1966 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: Fischer confuses his opponent with 3. d3. He takes Ivkov off course from the outset.
 
   Oct-13-15 Fischer vs Tal, 1962 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: Fischer's 10. h4 fascinates me for some reason. He was always on the hunt. Always hunting the king.
 
   Oct-09-15 Yanofsky vs Fischer, 1962
 
PugnaciousPawn: What an endgame battle! Bobby was an absolute master of the endgame. It's interesting to note that many of his games were very even until the endgame, where he would slowly move in for the kill with the utmost precision.
 
   Sep-24-15 Fischer vs Rodolfo Cardoso, 1957
 
PugnaciousPawn: It also seems to me that with careful play, White can win this game.
 
   Aug-28-15 Carlsen vs Anand, 2005
 
PugnaciousPawn: Carlsen's 12. d3 is interesting here. I was expecting the typical 12. d4.
 
   Aug-13-09 Z Radojevic vs Bagirov, 1973 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: If 14.Qxb4, then 14...Nd3 forks the King and Queen.
 
   Jun-25-09 Huebner vs Nunn, 1982 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: Why not 10. b4 to trap the black knight?
 
   May-06-09 Keres vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: Why did Keres play it out to the mate? He was history after 49...Qxf2.
 
   Jan-09-09 Forster vs E Schiller, 1982 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: Actually, this variation of the Alekhine isn't as absurd as you might think. GM Joel Benjamin renamed this retreat variation the "Brooklyn Retreat." Black's position still remains fundamentally sound. It may be construed as a sort of zugzwang, as retreating the knight is like
 
   Jan-08-09 Fischer vs W G Addison, 1970 (replies)
 
PugnaciousPawn: The Scandinavian can actually be an effective weapon, but you must be precise! 3...Qd8 was Addison's first mistake, as 3...Qa5 is the correct move in the system. Defenses like the Scandinavian take the opponent out of book lines.
