I dropped my old Bio. With the years I have become unattached to chess. I still enjoyed it but I don't love it anymore.

   Sep-17-18 Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938 (replies)
maxi: <OhioChessFan: ... Sure, beating Capa, a speculative Pawn sac, great stuff, it meant a lot to Botvinnik, okay, but a historically great game? No.> Bad composition Ohio. "historically" it is certainly a great game, one of the few games defining the end of an epoch and the ...
   Sep-16-18 Najdorf vs Tal, 1970 (replies)
maxi: <MarkFinan: It takes Najdorf 5 moves from 39 to move 44 to find Rf1, which even i saw!> Probably M. Najdorf was waiting for adjournment to clinch it. He was an extraordinary player.
   Sep-12-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
maxi: It was great to relive this beautiful combination.
   Sep-01-18 Sveshnikov vs Romanishin, 1978
maxi: Nice piece manipulation.
   Aug-30-18 E Corzo vs Capablanca, 1902
maxi: This was friendly game with a 13 year old Capablanca. I am sure he could have calculated the whole line, but taking the knight should have resulted in immediate resignation. For some reason Enrique Corzo did not resign, but Black's position is overwhelming. My point had nothing to do ...

maxi: Annotating this game Botvinnik writes: <In this game, as in many others, I made use of the practical piece of advice which was given to me by Capablanca: "When you have the advantage and your opponent has a passive piece set-up, one should not hurry matters. With each move the ...
   Aug-24-18 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1941 (replies)
maxi: Yes, at this time Joseph was still dotty about Adolph. A breaking of his gentle heart. Sad.
   Aug-21-18 W Winter vs Capablanca, 1919 (replies)
maxi: In his writings Capa several times gave as his justification for particular move the idea of tempting or luring his opponent into a weak move or plan.
   Aug-17-18 Capablanca vs E Reeve, 1919 (replies)
maxi: Some nice comments here, particularly the old one by <CapablanaFan>.
   Aug-14-18 Tal vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
maxi: It seems difficult for Petrosian to be able to recover from the awful 14...Ne4? What is peculiar is that he had prepared the natural 14...Nc6 but did not played it.
