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.

   Sep-16-14 Capablanca - Alekhine World Championship Match (1927)
maxi: I believe he simply was not used to be offered resistance and just couldn't handle this new situation. He had been "too good".
   Sep-16-14 Tal vs T Paehtz Sr, 1974
maxi: It's like a study.
   Sep-15-14 J Yuchtman vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
maxi: <pedro99> Actually Jonathan is a nephew of artist Roland Penrose, and brother to mathematician Roger Penrose, who has also done work on cosmology.
   Sep-08-14 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1971
maxi: Petrosian went carefully over his opponents games, looking for possible traps and weaknesses. Who knows...
   Sep-07-14 Topalov vs Caruana, 2014
maxi: <GrandMaesterPycelle> Yes, partly because one is still wiping his face in disgust.
   Aug-15-14 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
maxi: If Capa showed up today I am pretty sure that the opposition he met would be a lot stiffer, but not for a moment do I doubt that he would either reach WCh or become one of the top contenders. I read what <visayanbraindoctor> and Wolff write, and agree with most of it. The most ...
   Aug-07-14 Fischer vs Larry Evans, 1963
maxi: I agree with <RookFile>'s comments about this game. IMO Fischer's game is OK but nothing special. But this does raise an interesting question. What happened with Black's (Evans') game? Why did he collapse so abruptly? I went over the game and then checked my ideas with Houdini ...
   Jun-02-14 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1921 (replies)
maxi: <Sally Simpson> That was interesting. You know, comics, magazines and the like are a vanishing genre. Even newspapers. I give them 20 more years and it's bye bye. Going back to my previous note about Tolstoy, I really recommend War and Peace if any one of you wants to read ...
   May-20-14 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
maxi: <Poulsen> Lasker knew Capa from at least 1906, when Capa won a rapid chess tournament at the Manhattan CC ahead of the WCh himself.
   May-17-14 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
maxi: <Benzol> That Karpov kept playing past his prime shows that he actually enjoys playing chess in itself, and not to show he is better than everybody else.
