I haven't played in tournaments in many years due to my time-demanding job, but I am fairly strong and carefully follow the world chess scene.

   Jan-21-17 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
maxi: It seems to me that it is clear that the position after the piece exchange ending at move 62 cannot be won by either side. After move 115, with the white rook and g pawn gone from the game, it is either stupid or arrogant or both to keep on playing. Magnus has been afflicted by the ...
   Jan-21-17 W So vs Harikrishna, 2017
maxi: Perhaps Svidler thinks the position is transparent after 5...d5?, but I am amazed at how bad Black's position is by move 10; it seems lost. One could perhaps try 6...0-0 in order to save the game. Opinions?
   Jan-21-17 Timman vs Huebner, 1991
maxi: Seems pretty drawish to me. Why was the candidates match so short, just seven games?
   Jan-18-17 Taimanov vs Matulovic, 1970
maxi: It also seems to me that Matulovic was trying to lose this game on purpose, and as fast as possible. One must really applaud his work ethic: having been paid to lose, he does it efficiently and thoroughly.
   Jan-13-17 R Jumabayev vs T Igonin, 2016
maxi: The tactical idea is nice: 22.Nxd5 cxd5 23.Bd7 Qd7 24.e6+, but the simple 22.Nxd5 Qxd5 23.Rf5 Ne6 gives away just a Pawn. The unexpected confuses people.
   Jan-12-17 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962
maxi: <RookFile: 33... Qxg3 has a sense of humor to it.> Remarkable. For the second time in the same game Korchnoi surprises Fischer offering material.
   Jan-10-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
maxi: I am not sure what "genius" means, but if some guy plays 11.Qe1 in a simultaneous display, he must be one.
   Jan-08-17 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971
maxi: It seems to me that the best defense for black after the piece exchange of move 22 is to advance and attack with his d pawn. If he waits white will centralize his King and advance his queenside pawns and quickly slaughter black.
   Jan-07-17 Capablanca vs Newark Evening News, 1931 (replies)
maxi: So Capa is eyeing the two beautiful women and is thinking, "Hmmm, there is a chance later tonight I will give a simultaneous display!"
   Jan-06-17 Palma de Mallorca Interzonal (1970) (replies)
maxi: <keypusher: I think there are a lot of similarities between Fischer and Botvinnik in temperament and approach...> Fischer went over Botvinnik games with zeal. That explains in part the similarities in the approach.
