   May-24-15 Reshevsky vs Petrosian, 1963
RookFile: Reshevsky took two from Keres, the tournament co-winner. I think you're right, this game meant a lot to Reshevsky for whatever reason.
   May-24-15 Petrosian vs Reshevsky, 1968
RookFile: A reminder of how little a grandmaster needs to win a game.
   May-22-15 A Samhouri vs Judit Polgar, 2010 (replies)
RookFile: So 12. h3 seems reasonable.
   May-22-15 Keres vs Petrosian, 1962
RookFile: Kind of a lame effort by Keres. An extra half point instead and maybe he wins the tournament.
   May-22-15 Geller vs Petrosian, 1962
RookFile: You've got to hand it to these guys. They really fought to the death. I can't imagine why anybody would think they agreed to a draw beforehand.
   May-21-15 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1962
RookFile: What a great game by Petrosian. I thought after move 24. Rd3 that white still might have been able to get a draw. Petrosian really took advantage of his opportunities in this game.
   May-21-15 Julio Bolbochan vs Petrosian, 1962
RookFile: Petrosian easily equalizes here, snuffing out white's first move initiative.
   May-21-15 Taimanov vs Fischer, 1971
RookFile: With David Letterman retiring, I have to say that 46. Rxf6 has to be one of the top 10 worst moves ever played in top professional chess.
   May-21-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
RookFile: <An idea co-opted from the Bronstein Clock, same with Fischer-random chess.> Who cares? Bronstein's approach wasn't quite good enough. Fischer's works, and we use it today.
   May-20-15 AVRO (1938)
RookFile: Lasker going 16 out of 20 at New York 1924. Forget about it, nothing else by a senior equals that in tournament play.
