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.

   Apr-15-17 G Tiers vs C A Rock, 1963
maxi: Nice kill, if not very gentlemanly.
   Apr-12-17 N Banks vs Capablanca, 1916
maxi: Perhaps, but being the 47th move, it is unlikely.
   Apr-11-17 Carlsen vs Tomashevsky, 2016
maxi: Even after 15.Ne5 White's advantage is moot, but 15...g5 allows the computer-like Carlsen plan 16.f4! gxf 17.Rf1!. Perhaps the position is not lost yet for a computer, but is very hard for a human to survive.
   Apr-07-17 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
maxi: One must also remember Fischer was not yet Fischer. His result for this Tournament was +2 -4 =5, for a ninth place out of twelve players.
   Mar-27-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
maxi: In the last few pages of this thread I have read some very interesting arguments in favor of Fischer having good chances of beating Karpov. Then there are these ideas about clones, which are interesting philosophically. But it is very important to remember that in reality (which, as ...
   Mar-27-17 Robert E Byrne vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
maxi: You are right, <Petrosianic>. I remember having similar doubts. But my first two chess books were A Chess Course (or something like that) by Reinfeld and Capa's Chess Fundamentals! Sometimes Capablanca too would put a chess diagram and not quote the source game. I figured people ...
   Mar-26-17 R Grau vs Euwe, 1924
maxi: Grau explains the garbled score by saying that it was transmitted incorrectly by telegraph from Paris to Buenos Aires. It was then published by "El ajedrez argentino" in this form, and chess publications all over the world followed suit. I have sinned myself similarly. In the corrected
   Mar-16-17 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
maxi: In <ChessHigherCat> line 33. ...Qg3 34. Nxg3 a2 35. Nf5 a1Q 36. Qxa1 Bxa1 37. Nxd6, it should be mentioned that playing 35...Ra8 first before the promotion is even stronger, as it keeps the rook and both extra pawns.
   Mar-14-17 Nakamura vs Grischuk, 2017
maxi: All round nice post, <Stanley Yee>. Thanks.
   Mar-10-17 A Reinhard vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
maxi: Reinfeld is soo evangelical. Somebody plays Nb1d2 and he says it is poor development and the cause of the loss of the game. When I was learning chess I used one of his books and it confused me a lot. Later I would find that Tal or Petrosian had played the same move! During those years ...
