SteinitzLives: A, B, and C must be the first three rings of it. . . . Or perhaps where a student's parents send junior after a bad academic report card.

SteinitzLives: <keypusher> Yes, a contemporaneous article would naturally trump wikipedia. In this specific case, note that accountants come in all forms and fashions, public private, gov't, solo practitioners, tax or audit specialists, not to mention, do I dare: consultants and ...
 
   Aug-06-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: It's very possible that most of these GMs get asked for their autographs pretty regularly, so maybe they wrote fast and sloppily out of habit, or perhaps the marker was too big for the small space they had to write in. I just wish one of them had had enough disdain for ...

SteinitzLives: Reminds me of an innuendo: an Italian suppository.
 
   Jul-12-16 Kramnik vs R Buhmann, 2016 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Yes, that was on chess24's feed too, but it was a mistake of some sort. This drawn game will go down as one of the most exciting and imbalanced ones of the tourney! Gutsy sac by Vlad, good moves by Buhmann, very entertaining and instructive.
 
   Jun-26-16 S Shankland vs Ganguly, 2016 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Black seems warn out in this game, where as white's pieces and pawn center have so much more life and mobility to them. Great to see Shankland, who is now the 7 game winner, catch him.
 
   Jun-20-16 YourNextMove Rapid (2016) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Naka did well in the earlier rapids, but to sustain this pace in yet another rapid against top competition, one really needs endurance of all kinds, and strong physical conditioning. This is not an area Naka matches up all that well with the other players. Red Bull is no ...

SteinitzLives: Danny Kopec was a strong and capable chess teacher and he greatly popularized chess camps in the U.S.. His old videos on pawn structure (back when there were few resources at all on them) tied to specific opening formation was fantastic!
 
   Jun-09-16 Korchnoi vs Carlsen, 2004
 
SteinitzLives: A great cross-generational battle. Not sure why Korchnoi traded Rooks. Perhaps he underestimated his young opponent's R&P technique, (though it would be hard to overestimate Viktor's, at that time).

SteinitzLives: The janitor gets paid much more, and with better benefits, so it's not an easy decision.
