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.

   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.
   Apr-19-14 Capablanca vs Reshevsky, 1936
maxi: It seems to me that the White d Pawn will advance very fast making the draw unlikely. It is interesting to take a look at Saidy vs Fischer, 1964
   Apr-15-14 Karpov-Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
maxi: <Everett> Yes, Karpov was a special kind of player, with his game following mysterious paths. The mind benefits from focus and guidance, and, of course, from the new concepts. Alekhine studies the new trails Capablanca has opened in the study of chess and learns chess anew, ...
   Apr-14-14 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924
maxi: I have been careless in my notes and sometimes I have mixed above two different variations, the one coming from 35.Kg3 Rxc3+ 36.Kh4 a6 and the one from 35.Kg3 a6 right away. But in either case White wins if his King follows the route Kg3-h4-h5 right away.
   Apr-14-14 L Josteinsson vs Petursson, 1984 (replies)
maxi: I don't know what is the big deal, <Once>. I also can improve the line: 26...Nxf3+ 27.Kh1 RxR 28.RxR e2! and checkmates in a few moves.
   Apr-13-14 E Nash vs Fischer, 1956
maxi: As far as my understanding of chess goes, the losing move was White's 25.Qxc5. White needs to start actions on the King side to counterweight his weak Queen flank. After the exchange of Queens he should lose. He had to avoid the Queen exchange at all cost. White should not have tried ...
   Apr-12-14 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
maxi: What a beautiful thing this game is.
   Apr-11-14 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
maxi: A lot of interesting stats, this Friday in April.
   Apr-09-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
maxi: maxi: <piyushranjan> In your chessbase link there is an article I hadn't read about improving human strategy when playing computers. In a nutshell it says that we have to play short matches (we tire fast) and play conservative: sacs don't pay against silicon. It seems, on the ...
