   Apr-25-15 W So vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: "Dead drawn" "Losing" and "Winning" as spoken by human annotators, often mean nothing since only playing it out shows the truth. Playing it out, as many top GMs usually do, often to advantage, is no insult to chess truth, in fact it makes the truth. Engine scores for a ...

SteinitzLives: And Kramnik too!
 
   Apr-25-15 Anand vs Mamedyarov, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: d7 followed by Qd4, then e6 looks hard to stop.
 
   Apr-25-15 D Naroditsky vs Jakovenko, 2015
 
SteinitzLives: Good to see Naroditsky win one, albeit with the usually unpromising looking variation of this opening. The centralized white Q was the turning point, followed by the centralized R, and passed P. Nice win.
 
   Apr-25-15 Grischuk vs L Dominguez, 2015
 
SteinitzLives: Nice work by Dominguez, liked how he kept is knight good and pushed the pawns sparingly near the end, as well as kept his king an asset. White bishop and king seemed mostly unable to do much.

SteinitzLives: Jaffe was the American equivalent of Janowski, only with less talent, and more personality. Thanks for the stories Charlie!
 
   Apr-17-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: It seemed like Anand just kind of ran out of steam after building up a good advantage. It had cost him three times as much on the clock and Carlsen was on alert to punish any miscues related to Vishy's king walk. Still I think this is a good start for both players unless Vishy
 
   Apr-17-15 W So vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: I would say nice game by So, but that would be less than half true. Giri fell behind by 4 tempi by move 12! Black had no compensation for the lost tempos, white has all the space and development at that point. How could So not win? I am not sure whether to be disgusted with
 
   Apr-11-15 US Championships (2015) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: The better one gets at chess, and/or the longer they play it, the more self-focused they risk becoming. This will usually block out maturity (often social maturity) in certain areas for sure, but I'll take that risk. There are fewer staunch norms and mores in the western world
 
   Apr-11-15 Las Palmas Interzonal (1982)
 
SteinitzLives: What a terrible tournament for Walter. No e pawn openings in his games. Wonder if that had anything to do with it.
