   Sep-20-17 Przepiorka vs Janowski, 1925
RookFile: Black could have resigned on move 44. He can't keep the white king out.
   Sep-20-17 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984
RookFile: Karpov took it easy for this game.
   Sep-20-17 Geza Maroczy
RookFile: Gee, I'm a school teacher but I want to be allowed to run off and play in chess tournaments whenever I want. Too bad we all can't get an arrangement like that.
   Sep-20-17 Maroczy vs Milner-Barry, 1932
RookFile: Marozczy gives a Capa impersonation but omits 40. g5 setting up strong threats. The idea would go something like 40. g5 Rxa3 41. f6+ gxf6 42. gxf6+ Kd7 43. Rb7+ Ke8 44. Rb8+ Kd7 43. Rf8 and white should win.
   Sep-20-17 Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1925
RookFile: 39.....Re8 40. Rxe8 and now: A) 40....Kxe8 41. Qe2+ Re4 42. Qh5+ gives white a strong attack (and by the way he's two pawns ahead) B) 40....Bxe8 41. Qf1 and after Qxh3 white will be 3 pawns up.
   Sep-18-17 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
RookFile: Karpov had a terrific sense of danger. Kasparov surprises him with a novelty, and Karpov wisely steers the game to a draw. I guess that makes the next one with this opening, which Kasparov won, all the more inpressive for Kasparov. Karpov had time to prepare and still lost.
   Sep-16-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992
RookFile: I think that sometimes he would try to bait Fischer into overextending himself.
   Sep-15-17 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
RookFile: Reuben Fine had a good record against the champs. He might have had a brief period where he was the strongest player in the world.
   Sep-15-17 D Seawald vs R Seltzer, 1992
RookFile: When black played 12....f5, there was a threat of ...f4 winning a piece. I think that either 13. f3 or 13. Nb3 would have been interesting tries for advantage. What white actually did is also a common way of playing this.
   Sep-15-17 Capablanca vs Bogoljubov, 1924
RookFile: Bogo made a very good opening choice for this game.
