   Nov-06-14 Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974 (replies)
 
copablanco: It's the same overall strategy used by Fischer playing white against Oscar Panno : Close the centre, control, and secure the queen side, attack the king flank. Done deal as white stands "reptilian like" better in these types of closed positions. Instructive, however is Karpov's ...
 
   Oct-21-14 Fischer vs V Ciocaltea, 1962 (replies)
 
copablanco: Q-f6 was forced, and Kt-g6, and 0-0 for black ???
 
   Apr-11-13 Nezhmetdinov vs P Ermolin, 1946
 
copablanco: Black's play was horrible.
 
   Mar-15-13 Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1934 (replies)
 
copablanco: Alekhine allows a passed pawn on the queen side then spends a lot of energy getting it back. Nothing "breezy" about it for a "world champion". Lasker and Capablanca are the only two players to win the world championship without loosing a single game. When Alekhine won the ...
 
   Mar-14-13 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927 (replies)
 
copablanco: Capablanca was said to be busy dallying with the tango ladies of Buenos Aires.

   Mar-13-13 Golden Executive / Houdini vs Hosea / Schiller / Wall, 2011 (replies)
 
copablanco: So now computer chess programs are giving humans "out of book" odds or "out of database" odds. Chess programs have no foresight. Chess programers replaced that with an evaluation function, which considers a move based on "polling" various board positions , and assigning them a ...
 
   Mar-13-13 Tal vs Sviridov, 1969 (replies)
 
copablanco: Playing Tal if you were "out of book", you were out of luck.
 
   Mar-11-13 Tal vs Suetin, 1969 (replies)
 
copablanco: According to Fischer "He is always on the look-out for some spectacular sacrifice.He is not so much interested in who has the better game, or in the essential soundness of his own games, but in finding that one shot, that dramatic breakthrough that will give him the win."
 
   Mar-06-13 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 (replies)
 
copablanco: A number of people are under the myth that a chess program like Houdini can evaluate better than a human chessmaster . That view is incorrect .It can evaluate faster, but not necessarily better.
