SteinitzLives: A Kings gambit w/ white that draws against So, a Scandinavian w/ black that draws against Carlsen, the ghosts of Bronstein and Larsen smile down on him.
 
   Jan-20-17 B Adhiban vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
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 ...
 
   Dec-02-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: I think Karjakin's seconds deserve a lot of credit, think of training the challenger to endure long grueling endgames for hours and hours portraying an opponent who would keep the game alive and take just enough of a risk to try to cause an error. Carlsen tried to be Carlsen ...
 
   Dec-01-16 Steinitz vs G Marco, 1896
 
SteinitzLives: Count the pawn breaks that work for white and don't work for black, very instructive.
 
   Nov-06-16 Kavalek vs Kraidman, 1969
 
SteinitzLives: Wow what a game! Kraidman plays the less popular 3. . . . exd4 against the Petrov (modern variation) sacs the exchange, and keeps up great pressure on mighty Lubosh, double-edged and real exciting! I castled with black on move 10 in the game I played, and was able to get ...

SteinitzLives: A, B, and C must be the first three rings of it. . . . Or perhaps where a student's parents send junior after a bad academic report card.

SteinitzLives: <keypusher> Yes, a contemporaneous article would naturally trump wikipedia. In this specific case, note that accountants come in all forms and fashions, public private, gov't, solo practitioners, tax or audit specialists, not to mention, do I dare: consultants and ...
 
   Aug-06-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: It's very possible that most of these GMs get asked for their autographs pretty regularly, so maybe they wrote fast and sloppily out of habit, or perhaps the marker was too big for the small space they had to write in. I just wish one of them had had enough disdain for ...
