Thinking about Ephesians Chapter 1.

   Sep-04-12 Petrosian vs Keres, 1953 (replies)
 
ephesians: With these computer lines, if they don't go up in evaluation at the end, it shows the computer is misjudging the position. In theory, the winning side should at some point be able to promote a pawn, making the evaluation somewhere around -9.0 at the end.
 
   Sep-02-12 Karpov vs Miles, 1978 (replies)
 
ephesians: Karpov relied upon his endgame strength. Surely Miles should have been able to draw this with correct play.
 
   Sep-02-12 Fischer vs J L Garcia Bachiller, 1970 (replies)
 
ephesians: Excellent insights, Atking.
 
   Aug-31-12 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
ephesians: Tal was the world champion around this time. He was putting lopsided results up against everybody. Surely we would not want to deny Tal his due during these days.
 
   Aug-31-12 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1886 (replies)
 
ephesians: Tough ending, hard to evaluate. Maybe Steinitz should have drawn this anyway.
 
   Aug-28-12 Boris Spassky (replies)
 
ephesians: 1968-1969 belongs to Spassky. How could it not? He beat all comers in Candidates and then beat the world champion. Was somebody out there doing something better than that?
 
   Aug-27-12 Robert E Byrne vs Larry Evans, 1965 (replies)
 
ephesians: Very entertaining game to play through.
 
   Aug-25-12 Zsofia Polgar vs Spassky, 1996
 
ephesians: Spassky surely considered an exchange sacrifice around move 20, but rejected it. It would appear that Spassky had a much better position, but how to convert it to a win is not obvious.
 
   Apr-13-12 Gligoric vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
 
ephesians: I find this position to be interesting: [DIAGRAM] The great players always make it look easy. The King's Indian hasn't had a good reputation for a while, but this position makes it look like something we'd want to play. He's got the black pawns on the queenside on dark squares, ...
 
   Apr-13-12 Smyslov vs Reshevsky, 1991
 
ephesians: In the opening, it seems like those doubled c pawns won't matter much. Then you find out that one of them does matter.
