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: Well, I suppose they do have the right to make quotes such as those and expose the fact that when they see an Arab, they don't see a human.
   Jul-23-14 Konstantinopolsky vs Reshevsky, 1939 (replies)
WhiteRook48: I referred to <jerseybob>'s variation, in which Black instead plays 14... Rac8 or 14...Rfc8, and white answers with 15 a4.
   Jul-23-14 C Eriksson vs R Rapport, 2014
WhiteRook48: Just think, if White had played 38 Rdc2?! instead, the fork would be answered with a rather inconvenient and invasive 39 Rc7+, saving both the rooks.
   Jul-23-14 M Gunbayar vs T Halay, 2004
WhiteRook48: Although White already seems to be at a disadvantage here, is 35. h3 the losing move? It seems so in this situation.
   Jul-22-14 Korchnoi vs Nunn, 1981
WhiteRook48: A true brilliancy on the part of Nunn.
   Jul-22-14 Negi vs C Molin, 2014 (replies)
WhiteRook48: Negi has a key mind, finding 30. Rg7.
   Jul-22-14 A Suarez Real vs A Alonso Alvarez, 2014 (replies)
WhiteRook48: I floundered around looking at stupid moves like 20 Rh8+ at first, but found 20 Qxf6 in the end
   Mar-09-14 J Gallagher vs Conquest, 1988 (replies)
WhiteRook48: What happens if 28 fxe5?
   Mar-09-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
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 ...
