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.

   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.
   May-16-14 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1985
maxi: Even after 22.Qg4 White's advantage is minimal. Either 22...Rdd8 or 22...Rd6, to impede the combination, hold.
   May-11-14 J Corzo vs Capablanca, 1913
maxi: Thanks, <RookFile>.
   May-05-14 Lilienthal vs Capablanca, 1935
maxi: Capa's 9...Bxc4 is a move unworthy of the younger Cuban genius. He forces a line that: 1. gives up his developed B for White's not developed B; 2. exchanges ...
   Apr-29-14 Radjabov vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
maxi: <beenthere240> was right, Magnus had to play the f-Pawn to have a chance of winning. Now it is a draw.
   Apr-24-14 A W Fox vs Capablanca, 1916
maxi: The final combination is equally precise: 52...RxB 53.KxR Kg3 and White is lost: If 54.Ke2 f2 55.Ne2+ Kf3. If 54.Kf1 b4 and it is over.
   Apr-22-14 Allies vs Capablanca, 1911 (replies)
maxi: <vonKrolock> Houdini suggests the maneuver 25.Nb3 followed when possible (after the Q exchange by two Rooks) by Nc5 to cover the squares d3 and e6. If Black tries to develop his N at e6 it gets exchanged. Black is still better but it is not so bad.
   Apr-22-14 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
maxi: Petrosian's defensive style was a personal conscious decision. He once said that after a game he had lost an Armenian came up to him and said, "Who gave you the right to lose?" He said that after that he tried never to lose.
