   Mar-26-17 L Pape vs G Freeman, 1931
 
RookFile: What I mean is that after 15...Nd7 Petrosian would have snuffed out white's attack and gotten at least a draw.
 
   Mar-25-17 Somacarana vs Cochrane, 1857 (replies)
 
RookFile: We're barely into the middlegame, but black finds a queen sacrifice leading to mate.
 
   Mar-24-17 Seirawan vs Karpov, 2012
 
RookFile: Karpov's a5 and a4 was very good. Once he gets axb3 in, white's winning chances are basically zero.
 
   Mar-23-17 Botvinnik vs Korchnoi, 1960
 
RookFile: One of the things white would do is watch for a chance to trade the e3 bishop for the knight. This gives opposite colored bishops, further increasing white's drawing prospects.
 
   Mar-21-17 Fischer - Reshevsky (1961) (replies)
 
RookFile: And Fischer was laughed right out of court, of course.
 
   Mar-21-17 F Apsenieks vs Tartakower, 1933
 
RookFile: White is the exchange ahead in the final position. Maybe he should return the exchange. 11. Rc2 Bf5 12. a3 Bxc2 13. axb4. Yes, black is clearly better. But, anything is better than resigning.
 
   Mar-21-17 Lasker vs J Bauer, 1890
 
RookFile: This seemed like passive play by Bauer. I'm surprised Lasker didn't win this somehow.
 
   Mar-19-17 Paul Morphy
 
RookFile: Fischer's view of the way chess is played today is different. He played a game one time after his retirement with a booked up 2300 player and only got a draw. The guy wasn't even in Fischer's league, but when you can bang out the first 30 moves or so, it only leaves a small margin ...
 
   Mar-16-17 Karpov vs Spassky, 1974 (replies)
 
RookFile: When black played ...e5, this more or less became the Pirc Defense for black. I realize that's a viable opening for black, but it is somewhat passive, and not really suited to Spassky's style of play.
 
   Mar-16-17 Alburt vs Deep Thought, 1988
 
RookFile: Alburt made the most of his chances in the endgame. I guess the computer missed a draw, but Alburt's play was instructive - he went all in on forcing the f pawn up the board.
