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.
   Jul-30-15 L Shamkovich vs J Benjamin, 1976 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Lots of us were surprised that it took Joel so long to become a GM. For a little while there, when he was an 11 year old rated expert, (which was real rare in the 1970's) many thought maybe, just maybe, he might be the next Bobby, but the longer it took him to get to GM, the ...

   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.

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!
