   Jul-28-16 Nakamura vs Akobian, 2016
 
RookFile: I don't know that anything is a dead draw here. Black had a pawn, white had the initiative. Seems to me that a draw would be the least likely outcome.
 
   Jul-28-16 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909
 
RookFile: Marshall avoided Capa's tactical trap that was set at the end.
 
   Jul-27-16 P Charbonneau vs I Krush, 2001 (replies)
 
RookFile: White threatens 40. Rg3, 41. Qg8 and the h7 rook drops.
 
   Jul-26-16 R Ovetchkin vs I Lysyj, 2013
 
RookFile: Yes, absoulutely. I tried that Na4 myself and went wrong once, holding a draw in an ending.
 
   Jul-23-16 Capablanca vs B Kostic, 1919
 
RookFile: What a nightmare, to have to play a game like this as black.
 
   Jul-23-16 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1913
 
RookFile: Marshall didn't want to build a big pawn center white white (2. c4 for example.) Maybe he should have.
 
   Jul-23-16 C Jaffe vs Marshall, 1913
 
RookFile: The most charitable thing you can say about 20. Qxd5 is that it was a naive move on white's part.
 
   Jul-23-16 C Jaffe vs Janowski, 1916
 
RookFile: 14....Nf8. That knight is a key defensive piece. It gives just enough protection for black's kingside. Meanwhile, black is winning on the queenside.
 
   Jul-22-16 G O'Toole vs T Kreiter, 2008
 
RookFile: Wow, what a horribly played endgame by black.
 
   Jul-22-16 Kholmov vs M Knezevic, 1991
 
RookFile: With 13....Ne4 black cheerfully sacs a pawn to get the opposite colored bishops. I guess he isn't afraid of white's doubled c pawns. White might have tried a little harder anyway, though.
