SteinitzLives: We always hurt those who love us most.

SteinitzLives: Yes, and that the games would be played in a stadium.

SteinitzLives: Yes, I will say he was underrated. A 38 year career with only 99 currently known losses? Not too shabby. Some of his endgames were really great. He also did not draw very much, but I can't be sure if that's a good or bad thing until I play through a lot more of his games.

SteinitzLives: <alexmagnus: NN may have a bad record, but he has more wins than draws.> Yes, no one can say NN is indecisive, and the market direction is clear!

SteinitzLives: The edge for black is tiny, white was wise to give back the pawn allowing him to also gain back tempi/development, not to mention castling. Still this kind of open piece-play based position has to favor So.
   Jan-19-17 Eljanov vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Yes, So's game looks interesting with 4 of his pieces all on the d file.
   Dec-19-16 Reti vs Tarrasch, 1922
SteinitzLives: Loved black's position up to move 7, after that it is all down hill. 8 . . . . . Nge7 is as lame as it looks, and ultimately is the final weakness that loses. When black did not take enough active queenside initiative (which is often, but not always what playing . . . . c4 is ...
