   Dec-21-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
   Dec-20-14 Kramnik vs Sadler, 2014
RookFile: Yeah, but white answers 13....Nxg3 with 14. fxg3, opening the bishop file for the rook. I doubt black survives for 10 more moves.
   Dec-20-14 Taimanov vs Petrosian, 1953 (replies)
RookFile: I'm glad that no all of Petrosian's exchange sacs worked. Otherwise, the guy would have us thinking that a bishop was stronger than a rook.
   Dec-19-14 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984
RookFile: Just playing over this game, and forgetting about the poltics - this is an awesome game by Karpov. Deadly, beautiful accuracy.
   Dec-18-14 Tal vs S Zhukhovitsky, 1969
RookFile: Thanks for the info. I guess the player with the black pieces is still alive, and is 98 years old!
   Dec-18-14 Petrosian vs Smyslov, 1969 (replies)
RookFile: If Petrosian wants a draw with white, you take it and run with it.
   Dec-18-14 Fischer vs W Nyman, 1964 (replies)
RookFile: I'm not sure if any player in chess history understood the power of the c4 bishop as well as Fischer did.
   Dec-17-14 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1918 (replies)
RookFile: Black's 12 move is an important moment: [DIAGRAM] I find that black has two principled moves: either 12...Bxf3 or 12.....b5 Let's look at both: 12....Bxf3 13. Qxf3 cxd4 14. exd4 Nd5 15. Bd2 Rc8 16. Ne3 Rxc1 17. Rxc1 N7f6 I would probably play it this way, because I've seen too ...
   Dec-17-14 L Barden vs J Penrose, 1959 (replies)
RookFile: A typical cautionary tale of what happens with black's queen afar in left field while white burns the house down near black's king.
   Dec-17-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: There are some inaccurate comments on this page. I think that some would benefit from playing over this game. Gligoric improved on Spassky's play and won handily: Gligoric vs Kavalek, 1972
