   Jun-25-17 Magnus Carlsen
RookFile: I'd give Carlsen the benefit of the doubt on this one.
   Jun-25-17 Wolfgang Uhlmann
RookFile: Well, you might have gotten 1. c4 e6 2. e4 d5 in a game from these guys - that would transpose into a French Defense line. The only problem is, it didn't happen.
   Jun-22-17 Milan Vidmar (replies)
RookFile: I've been playing over some of Vidmar's games and find that he was quite strong, in the same league as Nimzovich.
   Jun-21-17 Huebner vs Petrosian, 1971
RookFile: Petrosian saw it of course. A hacker like me would do something like bring the black king out to the center and try to bait white into making a mistake. Petrosian didn't want to waste time.
   Jun-21-17 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2017
RookFile: Semi-Tarrasch is a tricky opening. I'm not sure that Bb4+ and Bxd2 immediately is what you're supposed to do.
   Jun-21-17 Kudrin vs B Gold, 1979
RookFile: Pretty smooth endgame by Kudrin. Black was in a hurry to trade off pieces with an isolated pawn - probably not a good idea.
   Jun-21-17 Petrosian vs Huebner, 1971
RookFile: Huebner was really alert to exchange off the light squared bishops. That drew the teeth out of white's position.
   Jun-21-17 Speelman vs Kudrin, 1983 (replies)
RookFile: Seemed to me like black castled unnecessarily early. He could have instead played ...h6 or moved the d pawn 1 or 2 squares. Keep white guessing about what your intentions are with the king.
   Jun-20-17 Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974
RookFile: Wonderful endgame by Petrosian.
   Jun-20-17 Marshall vs Rubinstein, 1911
RookFile: Yep. Marshall was terrific in the openings and the chess world owes him a great debt for the ideas he pioneered.
