   May-31-16 Philidor vs NN, 1790
RookFile: Philidor was a genius.
   May-31-16 Botvinnik vs Bisguier, 1962
RookFile: It would have to be something involving white arranging his rooks and setting up g4 and f5 and taking advantage of dark squares around the white king. The white bishop probably goes to h3 too, though I suppose white could also first have it go to f1 and then d3. There would ...
   May-31-16 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
RookFile: I think many of us would have played 12.0-0 without a second thought, as Karpov did. Shows why chess is a tough game. The superior 12. Be3 is only something you come up with after first losing your way with 12. 0-0.
   May-31-16 Chigorin vs Schiffers, 1880 (replies)
RookFile: You don't play ...Qg6 and ...Qxe4 against an attacking genius like Chigorin. Black needed to compete in the area of tempi, not try to win a measly pawn.
   May-30-16 Browne vs Timman, 1982 (replies)
RookFile: Maybe just 22. Bd6 and offer a draw. Browne tried too hard.
   May-30-16 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
RookFile: A great game by a great player.
   May-30-16 Fine vs Lasker, 1936 (replies)
RookFile: Why black didn't play 18...Nf4 is hard to understand. The h5 knight is a liability, and you've got a chance to get rid of it for the cannon on d3. I guess Lasker wanted to win by confusing the issue. It didn't work.
   May-29-16 Kasparov vs Csom, 1980
RookFile: Black played 10...Bc5. What exactly did that accomplish for him? The question here is whether white is going to attack, or black. You need to establish what the roles are going to be. If you're supposed to play defense, then play defense. In this game black thinks he's going to ...
   May-29-16 Kasparov vs Caruana, 2016
RookFile: The pin on the f6 knight is nasty. You don't want to play ...g5 because it would take Kasparov 2 seconds to play Nxg5 in a blitz game. Maybe instead of ...Nd4 in the opening black needed to play ...Ne5 with the idea of ....Ng6 so you can unpin. If black meets ...Ne5 with Nxe5, when
   May-29-16 H Ree vs Keres, 1971
RookFile: Not clear to me whether Keres knew of this game: B E Horberg vs E E Book, 1966
