   May-27-17 Aron Nimzowitsch (replies)
RookFile: You can get all the benefits of Nimzo without the baloney just by studying Petrosian's games. Petrosian was stronger tactically and played more dynamically - but of course, prophylatic play, overprotection, etc. are very much to be found in Petrosian's games.
   May-26-17 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
RookFile: Petrosian was essentially playing the queen's indian with white and saying that Fischer, not being a 1. d4 player, would not know what to do with the black pieces. It didn't work out for him.
   May-26-17 Fischer vs Gheorghiu, 1970 (replies)
RookFile: It is worthwhile to mention that Petrosian got a good game by playing ...c6 rather than ...Nc6 in a similar setup. But, Fischer may have played that one a little incorrectly. ...c6 is a perceptive move because it does something about white first of all getting in d5 followed by ...
   May-25-17 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
RookFile: The actual games in this match were terrific, fighting chess, a joy to play through. It's too bad all the extraneous stuff was going on as well.
   May-24-17 Sam Loyd
RookFile: If Loyd mastered the openings he goes to the next level. I'm glad he didn't. His problems are amazing and we have those instead.
   May-20-17 Smyslov vs Spassky, 1959
RookFile: Looked like both sides were walking on a tightrope in this game. I actually really liked Smyslov's position in the middlegame.
   May-19-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
RookFile: Makes sense. Miles stumbled on something when he beat Karpov by answering 1. e4 with ....a6. Not that Fischer would have played this exact defense, but the idea is to make a murky position. Now, Karpov is smart too - he would have gotten ready for Fischer's poisoned pawn Sicilian. ...
   May-18-17 Max Lange
RookFile: It's too bad this guy never played Morphy. I'm sure they would have had some interesting games.
   May-17-17 Fischer vs Mecking, 1970
RookFile: This game reminds me of Lasker. I'm pretty sure he would have played the same moves once the middlegame arrived.
   May-17-17 Kasparov vs Kamsky, 1991
RookFile: 3...g6 isn't bad as long as you play ...d6 and eventually ...e5. If you going to play ....d5 move 3 is the time to do it.
