   Jul-21-14 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
RookFile: That's one of those little details that interrupts the narrative that so many push here. There was a way Fischer and Karpov could have played a chess match and Karpov avoided it.
   Jul-21-14 Korchnoi vs Nunn, 1981 (replies)
RookFile: The whole game is pretty unbelievable, because Korchnoi got the rook on a8 too. The game is way over my head, I wouldn't presume to understand it.
   Jul-18-14 N Evseev vs Flohr, 1949 (replies)
RookFile: Maybe 10. b3 would be OK for white. A problem with the earlier Ng3 is that Bf4 doesn't work well for white as the bishop cannot retreat to g3 if it needs to. By putting it on b2 I think white can get a reasonable game. The c3 move weakened white's d3 square and bishop.
   Jul-16-14 Alexander Ipatov (replies)
RookFile: This guy needs to play Alexander Ivanov. :)
   Jul-14-14 Lipschutz vs Mackenzie, 1886
RookFile: I don't think 7....Bxf3 was that terrific, it gets the king out of the way and then white's bishop comes right out to b5. 7.....Nf6 looks better.
   Jul-12-14 Petrosian vs Tolush, 1950
RookFile: Petrosian new how to play good defense, and he sure knew when his opponent wasn't playing it.
   Jul-12-14 Frank James Marshall
RookFile: I think he's be about Nakamura's level. Just a notch below the top.
   Jul-12-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: Yes, that's right, I meant King to c7 (or a7) to protect the pawn. Thanks.
   Jul-12-14 Tal vs Hoi, 1985
RookFile: 22.....Qe7 looks reasonable. The a8 rook goes to f8 or h8 soon.
   Jul-10-14 Janowski vs W Schelfhout, 1913 (replies)
RookFile: 6....g6 would have been desirable on strategic grounds, but it has the minor problem that 7. Nd6 is mate. Keres had a laugh like this once: Keres vs E Arlamowski, 1950
