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.

   Jul-15-17 Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919 (replies)
maxi: Geez! No wonder Thomas resigned.
   Jul-14-17 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
maxi: Now you have put me in a quandary, Petrosianic. I seem to recall I used a cut-and-paste for the quote, but this was more than three years ago and I am not sure of that or where I got it from. I don't have the book. Do you have access to it yourself? I am going to keep looking anyway. ...
   Jul-13-17 A Muffang vs Capablanca, 1922
maxi: In this friendly game Capa resigned in an even position. Possibly he missed the defense 38...Kh7 39.Qg5 Rh8.
   Jul-03-17 Capablanca - Alekhine World Championship Match (1927) (replies)
maxi: I have no particular interest in the theme of the present discussion, but I would like to make a couple of peripheral comments. First, <Petrosianic> says something very interesting: "The really amazing thing about this match is that Alekhine, through sheer determination, ...
   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 ...
