   RookFile has kibitzed 16868 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-13-18 J Mieses vs Tarrasch, 1888
RookFile: This guys were geniuses. What a game! Even the final position is a problem position, 74....Kb1 75. Qd1+ Kb2 76. Nd3+ is bad for black.
   Aug-13-18 Paulsen vs Steinitz, 1873
RookFile: Marshall said you don't bluff Steinitz. He'll call your bluff and make you pay.
   Aug-12-18 Tal vs R Bogdanovic, 1967
RookFile: It's fine. Black wanted a chess lesson and Tal gave it to him.
   Aug-12-18 Fischer vs Allan Jensen, 1962
RookFile: The computer thinks the ugly looking 12. d5 gives white an edge. It does keep a lot of pieces on the board and white has more space.
   Aug-12-18 Fischer vs Palle Henriksen, 1962
RookFile: 11. Rh3 was unusual, I think 11. Bg5 is preferred. The position is practically screaming for 11....d5! yet black didn't play it. Fischer then had a big edge but 16. exd5? let black back into the game. 16. Qd2 followed by Re1 gets all of white's pieces into the game.
   Aug-07-18 Huebner vs Portisch, 1980
RookFile: Fortune favors the bold. Huebner the buccaneer? Well, in this game, he was!
   Aug-07-18 Steinitz vs J Noa, 1883
RookFile: It's really funny. Nobody was more aware of the importance of controlling the e5 square thwn Steinitz, yet very often in this French Defenses his opponents seemed to get in ...e5 themselves, with easy equality.
   Aug-07-18 Steinitz vs J Elson, 1883
RookFile: Another game where Steinitz is fighting for equality with white against the French Defense.
   Aug-07-18 Steinitz vs J Elson, 1882
RookFile: The surprising 12....Bh2+ gives black an advantage, i.e. 13. Kxh2 Qd6+ 14. Kg1 Rxe1+ 15. Qxe1 Qxd3.
   Aug-07-18 Steinitz vs D M Martinez, 1882
RookFile: Martinez gave a good effort in defeat.
