   Sep-19-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: Fischer was also the best middlegame and endgame player in the world.
   Sep-19-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
   Sep-18-14 E Williams vs Staunton, 1851 (replies)
RookFile: Fischer said that Staunton was very strong in the openings.
   Sep-18-14 Maroczy vs Pillsbury, 1900
RookFile: 10 years ago we might have sniffed that these old players played the Berlin Defense so much. Such a defense would never, ever become used today.....
   Sep-18-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
RookFile: No wins for Spassky in this game, although he could have played out the endgame to try to make Fischer suffer more.
   Sep-15-14 Vallejo-Pons vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: Anand uses an opening that Fischer had used with some success.
   Sep-15-14 C Bauer vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: Really? Fischer said you should play for the win with black before trying to equalize.
   Sep-14-14 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958
RookFile: Agree with perfidious about Reshevsky being nasty. He was a warrior. Not the sort of person that wins awards for Miss Congeniality.
   Sep-14-14 Petrosian vs K Smith, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: Black fights on, down only a pawn, but against a world class maneuvering and endgame specialist like Petrosian, he has no chance.
   Sep-12-14 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: We live in an age where the Petrov defense is suddenly lively by comparison to the opening du jour. I'm waiting for 4. Nc3 to become more common. There are possibilties for white in the 4 knights game.
