   Aug-16-17 A Greenfeld vs M Cebalo, 1986 (replies)
RookFile: It looks like white is getting crushed but with 29. Rxc4! and 30. Bf1 he traps black's queen, allowing him to stay in the game.
   Aug-16-17 Rubinstein vs Bogoljubov, 1922 (replies)
RookFile: Not in 1922 it wasn't.
   Aug-15-17 Petrosian vs Gligoric, 1967
RookFile: Whenever I try to play like Petrosian, I get crushed like he did here. I guess that every now and then it didn't work even for as great a player as Tigran Petrosian.
   Aug-15-17 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
RookFile: I think that a pure wins format would reduce the number of draws. In such a format if you have any type of advantage at all, you play it out to the last pawn, even if it take 100 moves. You better, because you can be sure your opponent will tomorrow if he's in the same situation.
   Aug-14-17 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2017 (replies)
RookFile: Is that a rule? I've never heard of it.
   Aug-10-17 Botvinnik vs MK V S S, 1982
RookFile: I take it The Turk doesn't count as a computer? :)
   Aug-09-17 Korchnoi vs Simagin, 1960
RookFile: Korchnoi's pawns on a4, b5, and c6 were pretty but that's a lot of moves to spend on something without a result - meanwhile black had a terrific kingside attack going.
   Aug-09-17 Savon vs Spassky, 1961 (replies)
RookFile: After 4. d4 it's possible Spassky might have opted for 4....e6 and a likely transposition to a Tarrasch Defense, which he was an expert at.
   Aug-09-17 Nimzowitsch vs S Rosselli del Turco, 1926
RookFile: Black wasn't in Nimzo's class but I thought he played a good game.
   Aug-08-17 Karpov vs Portisch, 1988
RookFile: It's a great game. Portisch was a strong player too but you just get the feeling he never had a chance in this game.
