   Apr-24-14 Reshevsky-Najdorf (1952) (replies)
RookFile: It's funny that they didn't call the Fischer vs. Reshevsky match something like this.
   Apr-23-14 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: I don't understand why black played 21....dxc4.
   Apr-23-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
RookFile: Karpov picked a pretty good time to win against Anand - when it was for the championship.
   Apr-23-14 W Napier vs W T Dickinson, 1904 (replies)
RookFile: I guess there were at least two poets names Napier, another named Rice, and everybody has heard of Emily Dickinson.

RookFile: I think visayanbraindoctor has a terrific point. Looked at it from the black side, to the best of my knowledge the Lasker loss is the only time he lost with black in a Ruy in his career. (Under the criteria mentioned, a simul loss to Vasiliev does not count). Didn't check into the ...

   Apr-21-14 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
RookFile: Petrosian was weak enough to successfully defend his title - something many cannot say.
   Apr-20-14 Smyslov vs Petrosian, 1982 (replies)
RookFile: Cough.
   Apr-20-14 Browne vs Petrosian, 1982
RookFile: Great endgame mastery. You go into an ending, a pawn down, and say you're going to draw. If you're wrong about anything, you lose. Petrosian wasn't.
