   Oct-09-15 Korchnoi vs Ribli, 1987 (replies)
RookFile: Korchnoi lost matches to Spassky, Petrosian, and Karpov. He admitted he would have lost to Fischer. He hung around long enough to lose another to Kasparov. Conclusion? He should have been world champion.
   Oct-05-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
RookFile: I just don't see the short draws Ayler. Consider each of the 3 possible results after emerging from the opening, around move 20, let's say. 1) Fischer is better. In this case, we can certainly expect Fischer to play right to the end, trying to exploit every possible way of winning.
   Sep-29-15 Brzozka vs Korchnoi, 1959
RookFile: The bishop is lost, but white was in trouble anyway. Hard to see what white can do, even if he lines up on h7 black has a handy knight that can go to f8.
   Sep-27-15 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: I just think they made a conscious decision to condense material. When you only have an hour and fifty four minutes to work with, you have to do things like that.
   Sep-27-15 R Cardoso vs Lombardy, 1957
RookFile: I remember playing over games of Karpov where he would play something like 9. f4 in the opening, and thinking it was strange. But then you play over game like this and find out why white would want to play this way.
   Sep-27-15 A Jongsma vs Lombardy, 1957
RookFile: Lombardy excelled at these types of games. The move to play against him would have been 1. e4!
   Sep-27-15 Lombardy vs F Jobin, 1957
RookFile: I think black is supposed to play ...b6 at some point so that he can later play .....Nb7.
   Sep-27-15 M Gerusel vs Lombardy, 1957
RookFile: These kinds of schemes sometimes come up in a line of the Budapest, e.g. 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e5 3. dxe5 Ne4. White probably should have gone with 9. e3.
   Sep-27-15 Lombardy vs R Hallerod, 1957
RookFile: Unusual play. I guess Lombardy was able to provoke black into some weaknesses, and then capitalize on the dark squares. It looks very pretty. I certainly would not have approached it this way with white.
   Sep-27-15 World Junior Championship (1957) (replies)
RookFile: $200 for winning. But, they can't take the title of champ away from you.
