Why did Fischer really not defend the title?

Was Capablanca the most principled player ever?

Could a human GM beat a computer in a 30 min human / 2 min computer time control?

Why did Kasparov have such a tough time with Kramnik?

How can the Muzio Gambit be a forced draw?

   Apr-16-18 Fischer vs Geller, 1967 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <Richard Taylor> Fischer was clearly materialistic. Plenty of sources describe it. R Byrne, Soltis, Kavalek, etc. The old story where I think it was Hort was down a pawn but maybe was better but not clear offers a draw saying "Bobby, I don't know who's better but I offer ...

SChesshevsky: <AylerKrupp...It discovers what works and what doesn't work by playing games against itself, initially effectively making random moves and seeing what works and what doesn't work. After a while, it collects the knowledge it has acquired in its neural network to play ...
   Apr-15-18 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
SChesshevsky: In the book "Petrosian's Legacy", Petrosian comments that Portisch was an especially tough opponent for him. "Playing against Portisch, especially with Black, I feel discomfort in the opening every time. When he sits at the chessboard his whole appearance radiates a perfect ...
   Apr-15-18 Robert James Fischer
SChesshevsky: <saffuna> Thanks for the link to a great piece. The most telling part for me was the Wilt Chamberlin story. As I believe Fischer was a basketball fan, he probably really wanted to meet Wilt. But just couldn't get himself to go. Ironic that with all his imaginary enemies, ...

SChesshevsky: I believe this is a video of Korchnoi playing this game and others at this event:
   Apr-11-18 Steinitz vs Zukertort, 1872 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Are open central files strategically important? Here, at 6. exd5, both kings are on an open e-file. Interesting that there wasn't any other piece on that file until most of the action was over at 46...Re7.
   Apr-09-18 Leko vs Kamsky, 2013
SChesshevsky: A good tourney for Leko. Not very exciting here but seemingly a nice example of two very solid top GM's playing principled chess.
   Apr-08-18 Psakhis vs de Firmian, 2001
SChesshevsky: Seems a great game to examine pawn breaks. From all pawns on at move 22, you get a number of various passed pawns with one finally deciding.
   Apr-07-18 Karpov vs Falco, 1976 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Falco, are you the "Rock Me Amadeus" Falco?
   Apr-07-18 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <ndg2> It does seem kind of a modern push. Reminds me of the Yugoslav vs. the Dragon idea. I mean it looks something like Fischer's sac, sac, mate. Or the English attack idea to crack open the kingside for open lines to the king. Kasparov vs. Van Wely in 2000 or vs. ...
