SteinitzLives: Yes, it was his new (the Russians would say "Novi") game in 1988 with a "Sad" end. This post was probably a mistake on my part.

SteinitzLives: Why did Rick Santorum drop out of the presidential race, he had a great following and showed so much promise! He should have stayed in just like Jim Gilmore.
   Jan-28-16 Karjakin vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Yes, black placing knight on e4 which leads to being able to fight well in the center is what I was referring to. Well, if Horowitz wrote about it, and that would have been a long time ago, it should probably be ingrained theoretical knowledge for any of us in the U.S. who ...
   Jan-02-16 C Powell vs T Weinberger, 1976
SteinitzLives: I recall seeing this game as a "runner" transferring moves made on the board to the telephone operator who would transfer them to his counterpart on the other team. This game shows Charlie's fighting spirit over the board very clearly. Few of his opponents ever seemed to ...
   Dec-17-15 William James Lombardy (replies)
SteinitzLives: I have read through this sad story and looked at the documents and the videos. The bottom line seems to me to be that Bill Lombardy does not make enough money to live where he currently lives any more at age 78. The chess community, well meaning as it may be, has never been ...
   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.
   Sep-24-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Can't we call him the Matt Damon of chess since they are already believed to be cousins?
