   Oct-12-19 Fischer vs C Kalme, 1958 (replies)
RookFile: I like the pun and the game, mistakes and all, is a great one.
   Oct-07-19 Rubinstein vs Bogoljubov, 1920
RookFile: Bogo was good for dynamic chess but Rubinstein was able to stay in control of this game.
   Oct-07-19 Fischer vs F Gruenberg, 1964 (replies)
RookFile: A good effort by Gruenberg to try to try to get murky complications but Fischer stayed on top of everything.
   Sep-30-19 Fischer vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
RookFile: I must say, in playing over this game, that Spassky didn't break a sweat in making a draw out of this.
   Sep-30-19 Gunsberg vs Steinitz, 1891 (replies)
RookFile: <Then I taxed my opponent on the manner in which he had made his twentieth move, which was calculated to mislead, and I reminded him that in his match with Chigorin he had in a similar case brought a charge against the Russian master.> So much for Steinitz playing the board, ...
   Sep-29-19 Tal vs G Agzamov, 1984 (replies)
RookFile: So, there is a mentality of "do not hurry" when you have the advantage. It's possible you can bait your opponent into making a further weakness and actually make the win easier. I think that was what black was trying to do. Tal refused to do something stupid, so the game went on ...
   Sep-16-19 Fischer vs Wade, 1968
RookFile: I think the position after 11. Nd2 is really interesting. [DIAGRAM] That b2,c3,d4 pawn wedge really cramps black's style. I find myself wishing that the classically placed c6 knight was on some other square. Black could breath easier if he got ...c5 and cxd4 in. Sure, the computer ...
   Sep-13-19 Petrosian vs Geller, 1962 (replies)
RookFile: White plays for the draw from move 1 and gets his wish. More or less a rest day for the competitors.
   Sep-11-19 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1962
RookFile: It's just a guess on my part but I think Fischer and Petrosian were the same strength in 1966. Was playing over this game the other day, it's a pity they didn't play more that year. There could have been a lot of games like this one: Fischer vs Petrosian, 1966
   Sep-10-19 Harrwitz vs Morphy, 1858
RookFile: Harrwitz's Ba4 and Bxd7 wasn't bad, although somebody pointed out that Bc6 was better. With 19. Qd3 white would have had an easier time of it than in the game.
