   Oct-01-16 H Rossetto vs Korchnoi, 1960
RookFile: Korchnoi's play was really provocative in this game.
   Oct-01-16 J Schuster vs V Bellas, 1989
RookFile: Well, good for black for getting rid of his problem piece for white's strong king bishop. Surely white must have an alternative such as 3. c4 to keep that on the board.
   Oct-01-16 G Patching vs R Maishman, 2005
RookFile: If you're white and you want to avoid this nonsense, 3. Nc3 is a good and strong move. 1. d4 e5 2. dxe5 Qe7 3. Nc3 Qxe5 4. Nf3 Qa5 5. Bd2 is an example. It's more or less a Center Counter Defense where white gets more of a development lead than he usually gets.
   Oct-01-16 Simagin vs B Baranov, 1952 (replies)
RookFile: White hastened to trade queens. As a first impression, I thought this was strange.
   Sep-30-16 Kramnik vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
RookFile: Pretty smooth looking win from Kramnik!
   Sep-30-16 Keres vs Karpov, 1973
RookFile: Keres plays safely the whole way through, especially with his pawns. It's a good way to play, the game is either going to be a draw or a win.
   Sep-29-16 Miles vs Gheorghiu, 1986
RookFile: The question is whether black can get away with 20.....Rxa2. I understand why he didn't want to risk it, but if he can get away with that one, he should be able to hold.
   Sep-28-16 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966
RookFile: 18. Bd2 Bd7 19. g4 Nh4+ 20. Nxh4 Qxh4 21. gxh5 Qh3+ 22. Kg1 Qxd3
   Sep-27-16 Mark Izrailovich Dvoretsky (replies)
RookFile: Sad news.
   Sep-25-16 Simagin vs Petrosian, 1956
RookFile: It sure looked like white had dangerous possibilities, but Petrosian was unruffled.
