   SteinitzLives has kibitzed 1259 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-29-15 Vladimir Borisovich Tukmakov
SteinitzLives: Bought his new book on Bluffing and Calculated risk in chess, real enjoyable. He has a unique take on the subject and deals with it as some who see chess as more science than art might not be all that comfortable with. Tukmakov and most of the rest of us seasoned tournament ...
   Oct-31-15 N Bahram vs Hector, 1998
SteinitzLives: I had a friend once ask me how Hector gets away with playing so many out of fashion variations. Easy, he studies them first before playing them. I wish there were more like him.
   Oct-31-15 Bilbao Masters (2015) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Single round robin tournament? I don't want to see a lone GM playing with himself.
   Oct-18-15 Emory Tate (replies)
SteinitzLives: Emory Tate was a man who knew how to transfer his enthusiasm and love for chess not only as a coach, teacher and camp counselor, but as a player too. RIP Emory, take some GM scalps in heaven, and teach the amateurs with them there.

SteinitzLives: Whenever he plays someone named Jim, it will be Treasure Island day.

SteinitzLives: <Dr. Overlord> Edgy & questionable humor Doc. IM Adu has lived in both places, at various times over the last couple of decades, but you probably knew that's what I meant.
   Aug-29-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Wow, Topa just chose to play 18 . . . . Bxe6, not playing defense. He could have played f6, fxe6 or the prophylactic b6, but noooooo! He wants to activate that h rook and fight. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Medieval soldiers had shields for a reason!

SteinitzLives: Or a pawn to be named later.
