[what is this?]

   RookFile has kibitzed 17017 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-11-18 Kasparov vs R Korsunsky, 1978 (replies)
RookFile: Oh, if black could only trade rooks. Of course, Kasparov wouldn't let him.
   Dec-11-18 Robert E Byrne vs Fischer, 1960
RookFile: It appears 22. Rd1 gives white winning chances. Black has a bank rank mate problem to deal with. Fischer had turned down earlier opportunities to play for a draw, for example, 19....Bxe2.
   Dec-10-18 Reshevsky vs Larry Evans, 1960
RookFile: Reshevsky was something like +9 lifetime against Evans but for some reason most of the games I remember between the two were either Evans winning, or that miracle stalemate game.
   Dec-10-18 Fischer vs Benko, 1963
RookFile: Yep, that's exactly how I feel, morfishine. I could find Rf6 but I would never play the queen that many moves in a row in a snakelike pattern.
   Dec-10-18 Fischer vs P Trifunovic, 1961
RookFile: I think he hoped to murk it up and set traps against Fischer.
   Dec-07-18 Fischer vs Bisguier, 1963 (replies)
RookFile: < I don't understand the point of B-Q1.> Well, read Bisquier's note in the Apr-03-08 entry in this thread. He tells you why. Whether or not we agree with him is another story, but at least he tried to explain his thoughts.
   Dec-03-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
RookFile: Petrosian was known as a drawing master, but he looks like a wild and crazy guy compared to recent champions.
   Dec-03-18 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1966
RookFile: Play over enough Petrosian games and you'll start thinking a knight is stronger than a rook. More than anybody, this guy was making exchange sacrifices.
   Dec-03-18 Anand vs Aronian, 2018
RookFile: Knight endings can be tricky but black has no problem holding the draw.
   Dec-02-18 Kamsky vs Carlsen, 2013
RookFile: <kamsky should play a few thousand bullet games to gain a chess sensibility> Hard to even know where to begin to respond to such a statement. Of course this statement is not true on any angle you want to look at it.
