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
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.
   Jun-21-18 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1959 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Safe to say young Bobby had not yet figured Tigran out yet. Black's pawn moves in the opening and the amazing utility of his knight moves in the middlegame are impressive. Watching Fischers long and desperate looking Q moves is painful. Petrosian's careful king walk with the ...
   Jun-18-18 Tal vs Gligoric, 1959
SteinitzLives: After black's inaccuracies around moves 13 and 14 (which seem a shame due to Gligo's familiarity w/ this variation) Tal gets his kind of game. One can sense black's discomfort with 19 . . . Bxg4 leading to multiple exchanges where his 3 pawns which can't be used for anything, ...

SteinitzLives: RIP Misha. Chess loved you as much as you loved it, and we all won and still win as a result of your legacy! Thanks for everything!

SteinitzLives: We always hurt those who love us most.
   May-04-17 Russian Team Championship (Major League) (2017) (replies)
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!
   May-04-17 A London vs Joel Benjamin, 1993
SteinitzLives: Seven years after I was born, my family moved; but I found them! At least it has a happy ending, for at least one person.
