SteinitzLives: RIP Misha. Chess loved you as much as you loved it, and we all won and still win as a result of your legacy! Thanks for everything!

SteinitzLives: We always hurt those who love us most.
 
   May-04-17 Russian Team Championships (Major League) (2017) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Yes, and that the games would be played in a stadium.

SteinitzLives: Yes, I will say he was underrated. A 38 year career with only 99 currently known losses? Not too shabby. Some of his endgames were really great. He also did not draw very much, but I can't be sure if that's a good or bad thing until I play through a lot more of his games.

SteinitzLives: <alexmagnus: NN may have a bad record, but he has more wins than draws.> Yes, no one can say NN is indecisive, and the market direction is clear!
 
   May-04-17 A London vs Joel Benjamin, 1993
 
SteinitzLives: Seven years after I was born, my family moved; but I found them! At least it has a happy ending, for at least one person.

SteinitzLives: Did Fischer get rating points from this tournament, or were they nullified because of his withdrawal?

SteinitzLives: A Kings gambit w/ white that draws against So, a Scandinavian w/ black that draws against Carlsen, the ghosts of Bronstein and Larsen smile down on him.
 
   Jan-20-17 B Adhiban vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: The edge for black is tiny, white was wise to give back the pawn allowing him to also gain back tempi/development, not to mention castling. Still this kind of open piece-play based position has to favor So.
 
   Jan-19-17 Eljanov vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Yes, So's game looks interesting with 4 of his pieces all on the d file.
