   Jul-19-16 Odd Lie (replies)
SteinitzLives: Reminds me of an innuendo: an Italian suppository.
   Jul-12-16 Kramnik vs R Buhmann, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Yes, that was on chess24's feed too, but it was a mistake of some sort. This drawn game will go down as one of the most exciting and imbalanced ones of the tourney! Gutsy sac by Vlad, good moves by Buhmann, very entertaining and instructive.
   Jun-26-16 S Shankland vs Ganguly, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Black seems warn out in this game, where as white's pieces and pawn center have so much more life and mobility to them. Great to see Shankland, who is now the 7 game winner, catch him.
   Jun-20-16 YourNextMove Rapid (2016) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Naka did well in the earlier rapids, but to sustain this pace in yet another rapid against top competition, one really needs endurance of all kinds, and strong physical conditioning. This is not an area Naka matches up all that well with the other players. Red Bull is no ...

SteinitzLives: Danny Kopec was a strong and capable chess teacher and he greatly popularized chess camps in the U.S.. His old videos on pawn structure (back when there were few resources at all on them) tied to specific opening formation was fantastic!
   Jun-09-16 Korchnoi vs Carlsen, 2004
SteinitzLives: A great cross-generational battle. Not sure why Korchnoi traded Rooks. Perhaps he underestimated his young opponent's R&P technique, (though it would be hard to overestimate Viktor's, at that time).
   Jun-02-16 Fyodor Ivanovich Dus Chotimirsky
SteinitzLives: The janitor gets paid much more, and with better benefits, so it's not an easy decision.
   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
   Mar-24-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
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
