Ugh. When I look at my old kibitzes, I cringe sometimes. In my defense, I was eleven.
Anyway, I'm finally back on after a 14-month hiatus. I'll try not to be as inane as before, though. No promises. WhiteRook out.

WhiteRook48: What happens if 28 fxe5?

WhiteRook48: I'm going to complain about both sides here. The Zionists really haven't done a lot to endear themselves to me, what with blowing up the King David Hotel - and that's not even taking into account what they did to the Palestinians after that for decades. At the same time, ...

WhiteRook48: It's sad what happened to Fischer. He had some serious potential in life - he did get somewhere - but he crashed. Not all prodigies can handle the stress, I suppose?
   Mar-02-14 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
WhiteRook48: It's possible - though I haven't the slightest idea how likely - that the older masters might not be that happy with the shape of modern master chess. Capablanca claimed that chess was getting played out, if I remember correctly (?) Morphy probably would be able to trash even ...

WhiteRook48: While he may not have <been> the world champion, he was probably good enough to <be> the world champion. He put up a much better fight than Janowski, or Tarrasch, or Marshall.
   Mar-02-14 M Sion Castro vs I Morovic, 1995
WhiteRook48: It's a bit difficult for me to pinpoint exactly where White went wrong. Perhaps 48. h4? I can't see Black making a successful attack against an f2-g3-h3 pawn wall. h3-h4 practically invites Black's pawn to go to g4 at some point. I'm not really that good at endgames, though.
   Mar-02-14 A N Rubinstein vs H Winkler, 1983 (replies)
WhiteRook48: Incredible. White has two queens on the board AND THEY'RE BOTH COMPLETELY USELESS TO HIM. Whoever Winkler was, he was pretty good at this.
   Mar-02-14 M D Tseitlin vs Gulko, 1971 (replies)
WhiteRook48: Like most Sunday puzzles, this one was over my head. I'd hoped that the more straightforward 24. Qg4+ would win. I did <suspect> that Rd1-d8 would need to be played at some point in order to distract Black's dark-squared bishop from being able to defend properly, I had all
   Mar-01-14 Karpov-Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
WhiteRook48: There's no real definitive proof that a victory would happen in Fischer's favor, or in Karpov's favor. There's no significant discrepancy in how they performed against different opponents. Spassky, Taimanov, Larsen, Smyslov, etc. all had minus scores against both of them. The ...
   Mar-01-14 H Avram vs Fischer, 1957
WhiteRook48: That's amazing, it's rare to see Fischer getting trashed so thoroughly, even <before> he entered his prime.
