   Apr-17-18 Fischer vs Huebner, 1970
RookFile: Yeah, like I said, I don't think it wins. Not with best play by both sides. White's main hope would be that black makes a mistake in time trouble. Huebner was strong, maybe that wouldn't happen.
   Apr-17-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018
RookFile: Caruana should be able to play the first 20 moves of the game perfectly, especially in this day of computer analysis. However, I suspect he didn't want to reveal his main weapons, and played accordingly in this game.
   Apr-16-18 Fischer vs Geller, 1967 (replies)
RookFile: Geller reminds me of Marshall. Not so much a strong match player as a terrific tournament player. In any one game Geller was extremely dangerous against anyone.
   Apr-12-18 Staunton / Owen vs Morphy / Barnes, 1858
RookFile: This really is a brilliant game. It reminds me of the poisoned pawn Siclian. Black's play seems crazy and then he's winning.
   Apr-10-18 Zukertort vs Count Epoureano, 1872 (replies)
RookFile: The Count poured gasoline on himself and handed Zukerort a match.
   Apr-09-18 Ljubojevic vs Mecking, 1975 (replies)
RookFile: 15. Ndxb5 would be a try, threatening mate and the rook at the same time. Black replies 15....Rd7. A murky position.
   Apr-07-18 Reshevsky vs H Rossetto, 1960
RookFile: Beautiful play by Reshevsky. It's like watching a skillful dancer at work.
   Apr-07-18 Reshevsky vs Vidmar, 1936
RookFile: This is actually a fairly typical way that black loses a QGA. He allows a d5 thrust from white to open up the lines. With black you have to do something as soon as you can against that powerful bishop on b3.
   Apr-07-18 Vidmar vs Capablanca, 1927
RookFile: Vidmar was no dummy. He could see that Capa was in unbelievable form in this tournament, so he steers the game towards a draw. A wise practical decision.
   Apr-07-18 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
RookFile: Vidmar was a strong player, in the same class as Nimzovich. You don't hear a lot about the guy but he had a lot of impressive victories against top notch competition.
