   Dec-20-14 Shirov vs D Dubov, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Yes, Shirov was the Nutcracker Prince today using the magical Drosselmeyer rook who just sat on e7 staring down the black party guests for a powerful seven moves early in the game!
   Dec-20-14 G Oparin vs Morozevich, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Oh well, today Moro was the Nutcracker's mouse king. His isolated pawns sure played the role of unarmed mice.
   Dec-20-14 Nutcracker Match of the Generations (2014) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Nutcracker? Better get out the Tchaikovsky music, and wear a cup while you're at it. In this tournament, who will be the prince, or the mouse king? Most of all, who will play Uncle Drosselmeyer (councilman, and magician)? Let's not forget someone will have to play the role of ...
   Dec-20-14 V Fedoseev vs Leko, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Leko had a couple of drawing chances at the end, he was real short of time though, and moved his king to the wrong square a couple of times.
   Dec-20-14 Fischer vs Peil, 1964
SteinitzLives: It's fun to see Fischer break from his supreme courage classical style and channel a bit of Morphy whom he greatly admired. After cashing in on his vastly superior development activity resulting from his style switch (which he often did in simuls), he is back to classical ...

SteinitzLives: <harrylime> Wonder what the odds were on that boxing match, which reminds me of Ali's "phantom punch" that knocked out Liston.
   Dec-16-14 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: <Karthick 2229> Aided by engines here, Nakamura makes three second or third best moves in a row. When Kramnik is on his game, that simply cannot be done. There is no big blunder by Nakamura in this game until he is already busted. The three moves in a row are 17, 18 ...
   Dec-13-14 Nakamura vs Adams, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: So much for double R endgames being so difficult to win. Naka did a great job exploiting Mickey's desperate attempts to activate his h rook.
   Dec-12-14 London Chess Classic (2014) (replies)
SteinitzLives: I wrote yesterday that Nakamura had to get back up on the horse . . . . . well . . . he has certainly done that!
   Dec-12-14 James Bennett McCord
SteinitzLives: And I was thinking Watergate this whole time.
