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.

   May-25-16 A Ebralidze vs Ragozin, 1937
maxi: I am reminded by this game of a case of chess blindness I experienced myself. In a position that must have been somewhat like the one shown I was playing the white pieces and played RxR: [DIAGRAM] I was concerned about my minus pawn and I was wondering what to do when I was ...
   May-24-16 I Nei vs Bronstein, 1960
maxi: 37.b3 is a positional suicide.
   May-19-16 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1937 (replies)
maxi: It's games like these that give chess a good name!

   May-09-16 Topalov vs Kramnik, 2006 (replies)
maxi: <RookFile: What a game. Topalov had winning and drawing chances all along the way, and ends up losing it.> That's what happens when you let Kramnik take a pee.
   Apr-25-16 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
maxi: 22...Kf8 defends the b7 Pawn against the knight fork. This is a really interesting position. Pity I have to leave now. I hate you guys.
   Apr-13-16 Botvinnik vs Keres, 1966
maxi: Right, sorry.
   Apr-11-16 Ed. Lasker vs G A Thomas, 1912
maxi: Yes. Emmanuel Lasker was the chess player (or, as he called himself on a tragic occasion, Schach Koenig), and Edward was the chest player.
   Mar-29-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
maxi: Chessinfinite, I sympathize with your description of Karjakin as Ukranian-Russian, but don'the call him that to his face: you'll be risking a punch on the nose.
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
maxi: The guys here that said Karjakin had a better chance because he was cool under pressure were right.
