Rook e2: <after he defeated the then-acknowledged number one chess player in the world (now that Paul Morphy had retired)> + < where he sat beside a US flag> What does this add to his page? Can we add to Carlsens page that he is regarded the strongest now that Kasparov retired? ...

Rook e2: Very nice game. I play scotch myself and the Mieses always gave me trouble. Sometimes it seems like white has to remember all the lines and black can just pick one to specialize in..

Rook e2: So according to the computer analyses 18..Ne1 is a huge mistake that couldve been punished by 19. Nfg5-h6 20. Qh5-hxg5 21. Nxg5-Nf6 22. Qxf7 Qh8 23. Nxe6-Qg8 24. Qxb7-Rb8 etc. Both players missed it though

Rook e2: 3,5/5 for me after today.. My opponent offered me a draw when it was about +1,5 in my advantage. Never had a draw-offer such a negative impact on me..

Rook e2: I like Nakamura's 'you want half a point from me? Fight for it' style.

Rook e2: 47..Ba7? As the analyses during the game pointed out; a6 was +7 and Kh1 +3,5. Got to love Moro's games!

Rook e2: Maybe some of this should be seen in the time that they are published in.. Same goes for Dutch heroes like 'Michiel de Ruyter', a pirate basically, but it was seen like a heroes deed in the time that he did it.
