   May-04-16 Shirov vs S Sevian, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Fun game to replay, have to wonder how much time pressure Shirov may have been under. Young Sevian showed he can set "Fire on the Board" too.
   Apr-19-16 W So vs Akobian, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: It's hard to believe that a 2600+ GM like Akobian, who stays active in playing, can get mauled like this. To cite the rating deficit of 150 + points is too simple an explanation. Akobian being in less than best form, and So needing a victory added to the rating difference, not

SteinitzLives: Actually a lot of alcoholics have full heads of hair, while men with high testosterone levels are often bald. There is chemical evidence to support this, but don't ask me to supply it. Go the anecdotal route too: Just ask any bald guy and he will tell you, and any time you see
   Mar-22-16 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
SteinitzLives: I will go out on what I think is a pretty safe prediction and say that Nakamura will get no closer to a match with a world champion, (any world chess champion) until he has a much better team around him. My fear is that Naka has alienated too many of the 2700+ set or ...

SteinitzLives: <Retireborn> Right you are, don't know how I missed that, will let my friend know.
   Mar-03-16 E Najer vs T L Petrosian, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: What a slugfest! Like Marshall against Janowski with a few hundred rating points added to each player!
   Feb-14-16 A Giri vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: There are many more moves that have proven to be more promising for white than 8. Re1 in this opening. Regardless of what engines tell one, (not much in many thoroughly analyzed openings this early), moves such as: A. 8. Nbd2, B. 8. b4 (if white takes the trouble to play a4, ...

SteinitzLives: Yes, it was his new (the Russians would say "Novi") game in 1988 with a "Sad" end. This post was probably a mistake on my part.

SteinitzLives: Why did Rick Santorum drop out of the presidential race, he had a great following and showed so much promise! He should have stayed in just like Jim Gilmore.
   Jan-28-16 Karjakin vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Yes, black placing knight on e4 which leads to being able to fight well in the center is what I was referring to. Well, if Horowitz wrote about it, and that would have been a long time ago, it should probably be ingrained theoretical knowledge for any of us in the U.S. who ...
