   Feb-21-18 Keres vs Capablanca, 1937
RookFile: I think andresberger is basically right. I was looking at the position after 31....b5 and Capa is on life support. He could even consider resigning. With white, I think Capa would first of all play 32. Rd7, taking away one open file for black's rook. Than he would follow up with ...
   Feb-21-18 Semmering/Baden (1937)
RookFile: Very strong tournament.
   Feb-21-18 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965 (replies)
RookFile: <Morlaf: well from the original set up, white has a tiny advantage. why does not black always resign..... > Because there is a difference between a tiny advantage and being lost.
   Feb-21-18 Tal vs Robert E Byrne, 1966
RookFile: I think Byrne could have waited longer before castling.
   Feb-21-18 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1928
RookFile: Tartakower knows a good deal when he sees one. Take the draw and run.
   Feb-21-18 Tartakower vs Capablanca, 1928
RookFile: 8. dxe5 looks like a way to draw this game. That's better than losing when you're playing Capa.
   Feb-17-18 Soltis vs D Gurevich, 1981
RookFile: Of course he noticed them. He also noticed he was threatened with checkmate.
   Feb-17-18 Fischer vs Bisguier, 1957
RookFile: I thought Bisguier played a good game with interesting ideas. It's kind of like Marshall playing Capa. The champ wins but it's still a very interesting fight.
   Feb-17-18 Soltis vs Quinteros, 1975 (replies)
RookFile: Quinteros gets a pawn, Soltis gets all the dark squares.
   Feb-16-18 Menchik vs Capablanca, 1929 (replies)
RookFile: I think the point of the opening is white is supposed to play c4 a little sooner. For example, 3. c4 is fine. After Capa's sharp ...c5 thrust, d5 is not an option for white. But had white played 3. c4 then ...c5 is answered with d5 and white is happy.
