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: Out of curiosity, which particular televised debate was this?
   Jul-24-14 Konstantinopolsky vs Reshevsky, 1939 (replies)
WhiteRook48: In that variation (14...Rac8 15 a4 Qb6 16 Be3 Nd5) I might actually think that Black had the superior position, despite White's extra pawn. I think here, a better variation for white would be to answer Black's hypothetical 14...Rac8 with 15 Rac1, whereupon a potential 15...b6 is
   Jul-24-14 Antoshin vs I Nemet, 1964
WhiteRook48: It's not a brilliancy of any kind, but this game is worth a watch for anyone who's been really frustrated in a blockaded position. Got here from Opening Explorer.
   Jul-24-14 H Richards vs S Williams, 2003 (replies)
WhiteRook48: 23 Bc8+ with 23...RxB 24 Qd6# Or 23...Kf6 24 QxNch Kg6 25 Bf5+ Kh6 25 Bxg5+ Which should be enough to carry the day. I'll not look further than that.
   Jul-24-14 F Alvarez vs Karpov, 1972
WhiteRook48: And here I thought 30...Nxd3+ should be good enough to win the game. That it is, but it isn't the best. Karpov played this game superbly.
   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
