   Oct-18-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: You probably aren't cruising if you play the Najdorf Sicilian. Just a thought.
   Oct-17-18 Kavalek vs Bronstein, 1968 (replies)
RookFile: Wow, you look at what actually happened, and you feel pretty good about what Kavalek did. Then black plays 38....Rc8 and you say: "Uh oh". Regarding 26. Nb7, I think Kavalek didn't want to give Bronstein an option to get ...Nb6 in first, before white tries a breakthrough.
   Oct-16-18 Reshevsky vs S Belavenets, 1939 (replies)
RookFile: Well, you have to hand it to Reshevsky, Stockfish says 25. Qa7 is the best move on the board and says it's like +1.2 advantage for white.
   Oct-16-18 Nimzowitsch vs Alapin, 1914 (replies)
RookFile: 5...Nxc3 6. bxc3 Nd7 isn't bad.
   Oct-15-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: 10. h3 was a playable alternative to 10. Nxc6. 10. h3 0-0 11. Qd2 Re8 12. Rad1 etc.
   Oct-13-18 Fischer vs Greenblatt, 1977 (replies)
RookFile: I remember that some of the old programs couldn't mate with king and rook against king, as long as you kept making your moves quickly.
   Oct-11-18 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966
RookFile: Spassky said that first of all, Petrosian was a stupendous tactician.
   Oct-09-18 Bronstein vs Reshevsky, 1970
RookFile: Whether it is original or not, it's a good idea. It's the way Morphy played, and he had a terrific winning record on the black side of gambits.
   Oct-09-18 Reshevsky vs Kashdan, 1934
RookFile: Yeah, Kashdan should have won this game. I remember that Bronstein had a similar endgame against Reshevsky, and he did not fail to win it. Reshevsky vs Bronstein, 1953
   Oct-08-18 K Cottrell vs Lenderman, 2006 (replies)
RookFile: Bambi vs. Wolf. This wasn't pretty.
