SteinitzLives: <Conrad> Yes, it's very good and will take a while to get through, prolonging the entertainment and education. My only criticism is that it's disorganized structurally (meaning games location is separate from biographical periods covered). Browne writes without ...
 
   Jun-26-15 Odd Lie (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: I've chosen to respond at length on the <abdel irada> forum page. Though it only gives him more attention (which anyone posting 15,200+ times in the last 3 years must be desperate for), the Odd Lie page has taken enough abuse.

   Jun-25-15 J L Hammer vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Carlsen did not seem to play in his usual style in this game. It's as if it was the last round, and who cares, let's have some fun at the end of a tournament, that he might as well forget. I don't blame him, chess is supposed to be fun, even if it is a way to make a living.
 
   Jun-22-15 J L Hammer vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: One will always seem pretentious when pointing out the truth to the brazenly ignorant.
 
   Jun-22-15 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: A good king leads from the front, and a good rook guards him, but it would seem pretty hard for Carlsen to fashion a Lucena from here, and easier for Naka to get a Philidor position. Despite the engines more materially based assessment; from experience, this looks like a draw ...

SteinitzLives: Active rooks rule, be it offense or defense, nice win by Topalov over Grischuk!
 
   Jun-20-15 Roman Bar (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Sounds like a person or place that is open all the time. Salad bars are where we make our own salads, dessert bars where we make our own desserts, not sure what to make of making ones own Roman, perhaps that explains Dzhinzhi. Just don't include a dishwashing bar to the place!
 
   Jun-20-15 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: <perfidious> Ok, a tell is a tell, and you make a good point mentioning the possibility or reality of such in chess. It would seem that if in a chess game one spends too much time (how much is too much depends on a lot of factors) trying to find a tell, or looks for a ...
 
   Jun-20-15 Tal vs Pribyl, 1977
 
SteinitzLives: Pribyl was 0-5 against Tal with just two draws. Though rated 2485 at his peak, he was clearly not in Tal's class who clearly matched up real favorably against IM Pribyl from both a style and technique perspective.
