   Dec-11-17 William James Lombardy
RookFile: Simply put, if Fischer wrote a book, it wasn't in his nature to keep it a secret.
   Dec-11-17 Boris Spassky
RookFile: Petrosian evidently wasn't scared. He went out and beat Kasparov.
   Dec-09-17 J Peltomaki vs C Adrian, 2012
RookFile: 12. e4 gives white equality.
   Dec-09-17 Reshevsky vs Keene, 1971
RookFile: Reshevsky gave away the center with 10. exd5. I guess it's ok, but usually you leave that pawn on e4 and make a strong point.
   Dec-08-17 Reshevsky vs Larsen, 1970
RookFile: White's dark squared bishop was a nice piece. It made up for the pawn sac. Reshevsky saw a way to get a draw out of this and took it. I'm sure it must have been the right thing to do.
   Dec-07-17 Smyslov vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
RookFile: After 12.... f4, this had 0-1 written all over it. Fischer was probably thinking that he never had it so good in the King's Indian. White's knights look ridiculous on a4 and c2. Put another way, black's kingside attack is going to be ferocious, while white's queenside attack it ...
   Dec-06-17 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1921
RookFile: Black had no problems. If you play 1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4 you reach the Queen's gambit accepted. After 3. e3 Nf6 4. Bxc4 white puts his bishop on c4. In this game white first plays Bd3 and later plays Bxc4. The end result is a queen's gambit accepted where black has an extra move than
   Dec-06-17 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921
RookFile: Lasker played a nice game here. His chess had a dynamic quality to it. I'm sure the computer finds improvements for both sides. It always does. Capa presented numerous losses of his in Chess Fundamentals. That's more objective than most people get.
   Dec-03-17 Carlsen vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
RookFile: Nah. Anand will be well prepared and will draw without problems.
   Dec-02-17 Keres vs Capablanca, 1939 (replies)
RookFile: Well, it is a drawn position. Capa's quote sounds a little arrogant, but he's essentially correct that there was no escaping a draw in this one with accurate play.
