   Oct-18-17 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1981
RookFile: A Karpov in decline still has plenty to teach the rest of us.
   Oct-18-17 Euwe vs Boleslavsky, 1953
RookFile: Well, he was in his late 40's and had really been a part time player for some time.
   Oct-16-17 Lasker vs Pillsbury, 1895
RookFile: In other words, mirror image. Very interesting.
   Oct-15-17 Reshevsky vs Lombardy, 1958 (replies)
RookFile: I would have played 14. g4 myself. But Reshevsky made a career out of grabbing stuff and then beating off the counter attack. Lombardy's play was really profound. I think this was a must win game for Reshevsky (to catch Fischer) - a draw as a good as a loss for him. That may have ...
   Oct-15-17 Lombardy vs Polugaevsky, 1978 (replies)
RookFile: I guess this pun has been used before. I actually think the Reshevsky win represents Lombardy at the zenith of his powers: Reshevsky vs Lombardy, 1958
   Oct-15-17 Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1936
RookFile: I don't know. Capa's play seemed provocative, all those dark squared bishop moves. I set things up in Stockfish after 25. h4 and it definitely doesn't like 25....b5 from black. White's advantage at least doubled after that. Stockfish says black has to hang tight with something like
   Oct-11-17 Fischer vs D Keller, 1959
RookFile: The computer recommends 20. Qe2. At some point white plays f3 too. In other words, white doesn't have much, and needs to be very patient.
   Oct-07-17 Chigorin vs Pillsbury, 1902 (replies)
RookFile: I don't know. Pillsbury finished 2nd in the tournament. Give him another half a point and it's a different story. I guess this loss to Chigorin really hurt.
   Oct-06-17 V Bronznik vs P Cech, 1993
RookFile: Apparently, instead of the natural 22....Rd2, black has to play 22....Qxb5 and try and hang in there.
   Oct-05-17 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1959 (replies)
RookFile: Yeah, I think that's right. It seems to give away some of black's advantage and let Fischer back in the game.
