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.

   Jul-15-18 W So vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2018
maxi: Go got an excellent position out of the opening and it seemed that the game was going to be a slaughter, but RP defended bravely and kept finding good moves. At the end it seems that Go was exhausted, he played so loosely.
   Jul-14-18 J K Duda vs V Kovalev, 2018
maxi: I wonder if White can trap the Black Rook on the Queen side, then free his own Rook.
   Jul-09-18 Fischer vs Tal, 1960
maxi: Thank you <Stonehenge>.
   Jul-02-18 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969
maxi: Wonderful game! With 55.Qxg7 perhaps Spassky was hoping for 55...KxQ 56.Rg5+ Kh6? 57.Rf6 mate.
   Jun-21-18 Jose Raul Capablanca
maxi: It is strange that in Keres' long and opinionated article (cited by <Jonathan Sarfati>, Keres talks about everyone and everything, yet could not give an opinion about who was to blame for the failure of all attempts at a rematch between Alekhine and Capablanca: "In conversations ...
   May-20-18 Fischer vs V Kovacevic, 1970 (replies)
maxi: <ughaibu> Since Kovacevic himself states that Petrosian's wife did say something to him, it is clear that Korchnoi wasn't lying, whether Kovacevic understood her or not.

maxi: <visayanbraindoctor> Some time ago you invited me to read a discussion in CG about some themes in physics. I had to finish some reports that were overdue and I haven't had any free time. But I can take a look now, if you tell me where the contributions lie. Sorry about the delay!
   Dec-16-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
maxi: <Johnnysaysthankyou> I agree with you, but I have a comment. While it is true that Capa sometimes laid subtle positional traps (as often did Petrosian, too), Capa felt himself so strong that sometimes he made moves he knew were too aggressive and dangerous, trusting his ability ...
   Dec-09-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
maxi: The complexity of the endgame after 39.KxB is mind-boggling. There are so many tactics! No wonder two geniuses like Capa and Alehine had so much trouble with it OTB.
   Dec-09-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
maxi: I absolutely love it. AlphaZero sacs a meager pawn and is one bishop up by move 18. It is practically impossible to activate black's white square bishop. Capablanca would have been proud!
