   Aug-26-19 Pal Benko (replies)
SteinitzLives: I could rarely ever solve any of his endgame compositions. In that, he was a true artist. Pal was much more than a survivor from the political, oppressive and vile brutalities suffered in his youth and early adulthood. Pal Benko showed he could thrive with class and truly live
   Aug-21-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
SteinitzLives: I am pretty sure that the stronger a player is, the better they know how to protect their position from becoming losing, when a little or even a bit behind. They also know how to risk just enough to win without getting into a losing position. Hence the draws. Once the wins ...

SteinitzLives: There are lots of people like Dennis Hopper, dead, but not ever really seeming so. Jimmy Dean and James Dean are of course two totally different people, but both seem very much alive, the actor because he was a forever youthful icon, the sausage guy because they still run ads ...
   May-18-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
SteinitzLives: What's with all the 1st round wuss short opening draws, especially with the English? Fortune favors the bold. Maybe since it will be a long tough tourney, players are conserving strength. Screw the spectators I guess, the players are in for the long haul. Oh well, as long as ...

SteinitzLives: One can't but wonder who the author is, and when the IPO will be forthcoming.

SteinitzLives: Some of Anna's latest vlogging work on youtube link below, with a shout out to Carlsberg Beer for sponsoring the Copenhagen Chess Slam: Keep promoting the fun side of chess Anna!
   Sep-02-18 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
SteinitzLives: Naka's love of Red Bull as both a product to use, and an endorsement to self enrich, is understandable. However all the Red Bull drinking in the world will not sustain him in long chess games as he ages, compared to a decent and rigorous physical regimen which will give ...
   Aug-27-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Well, perhaps after winning his first game in a classical time control against Carlsen, some time ago, followed by several draws, Naka just got a little arrogant ;-). Although until now, I have had little material to criticize him about.

SteinitzLives: Almost 80% of this player's games were less than 40 moves long, he must have loved him some tactics.
   Aug-01-18 Spassky vs Robert E Byrne, 1974 (replies)
SteinitzLives: I recall following this match in the NY Times, rooting for Byrne and hoping that Spassky would not be able to win, but after this game it was real clear, Byrne had no chance in the match especially after this loss. 6. f4 ought to get played more often IMHO.
