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.

   maxi has kibitzed 1584 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-19-18 Jose Raul Capablanca
maxi: Ha! Capa and Alekhine both were Scorpios. No wonder they had a had time getting along.
   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
maxi: It is to Carlsen's advantage to get rid of the queens in these games.
   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
maxi: It is true the black king does not have a lot of squares
   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
maxi: I don't think black can necessarily get a passed pawn on the queen side, but he can force white to defend.
   Nov-05-18 Robert James Fischer (replies)
maxi: Yes. It makes <MissScarlett> seem redoubtable. At least neither of you are in my ignore list (according to <jnpope>), so there's still pope, I mean, hope.
   Nov-04-18 Tartakower vs C H Alexander, 1936
maxi: <ughaibu> If we were betting on it, and there was a way of finding out what happened (time travel, of course), I would bet that the actual move was 54.Bd7. Alexander saw the a-pawn was falling and lost faith. Perhaps somebody out there can help us out of this conundrum with new ...
   Oct-28-18 Fischer vs M Fox, 1956
maxi: Yeah, Fox missed a mate in two.
   Oct-05-18 Petrosian vs Pachman, 1961 (replies)
maxi: So, <offramp>, I will assume from now on that you don't like the descriptive notation. <deSitter>, please explain what do you mean by "...the degraded chess culture...". It sounds interesting.
   Oct-01-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
maxi: Like other people have written, this is not a "very easy" problem!
   Sep-27-18 Korchnoi vs Najdorf, 1971
maxi: This is not only a very interesting game; it is very educational, too. A lot of chess theory is involved in this game.
