SteinitzLives: <HeMateMe> Brilliant! I wish I had thought of it. My best is to have a scavenger hunt for all of the front and back seats of different NYC taxi cabs that Mr. Sloan has tried and failed to get lucky in.

SteinitzLives: Tal was the most prolific, well-rounded party-animal, who was also a World Chess Champion. Alekhine could give him a run for his money for drinking, and Capablanca for womanizing, but combine the two categories together, and throw in money-tossing (not to mention ...
   Mar-07-15 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
SteinitzLives: Surely The powers that be would bend the rules to let Caruana in to play in the U.S. Championship, wouldn't they? Nationality and citizenship are hardly barriers, as long as one declares before entering: "I am playing under the flag (the word flag, oddly carries great weight) ...
   Mar-07-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
SteinitzLives: I would have enjoyed seeing a chess boxing match between Fischer and Kasparov, when each was in his prime. Kasparov would have had better seconds, corner and cut men, but Fischer would have had a significant reach advantage.
   Feb-11-15 Peter Arsenievich Romanovsky
SteinitzLives: Just started Romanovsky's Soviet Middlegame Technique, which combines his two classic works: Middlegame Planning and Middlegame Combinations. Wow, so far in the book, I have to say this guy could really write about some chess, and his examples are truly instructive. The story ...
   Jan-31-15 Yasser Seirawan (replies)
SteinitzLives: If other American players could muster 1/10th of Yasser's professionalism, personality and class, U.S. Chess would be much better off.
   Jan-31-15 Tradewise Gibraltar (2015) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Well, I thought Nakamura's win today showed the breadth of his personality: Cocky in the opening to serious in the endgame and somewhat unpredictable in between. It made for good viewing but I don't think he would play this way against a top-ranked player.
   Jan-08-15 Szabo vs Fischer, 1970
SteinitzLives: The other slightly awkward looking move that Szabo missed (but who can blame him) was 31. Bf3. The e pawn and d2 stay defended this way.
   Jan-02-15 J Esser vs Marshall, 1911
SteinitzLives: Wow, white wanted to win this game so badly against a much stronger player that he avoids giving perps (then again he is up a couple of pawns almost the entire game) a few times. How he could neglect his King safety, and give back pawns and then let Marshall do what he did ...
   Dec-29-14 W Wilson vs S Langleben, 1898
SteinitzLives: Or excited about breaking out of the league of nations.
