   Sep-21-18 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1911
RookFile: The way I look at this opening is that Capablanca was playing the Queen's Gambit Accepted with the colors reversed, and an extra tempo or two for white. That may be less exciting than it sounds, because the QGA is a neutralizing defense, rather than one designed to attack.
   Sep-20-18 Marshall vs Pillsbury, 1904 (replies)
RookFile: Black may already be lost after 8...e6. 7....Nc6 was inaccurate too. More natural and active is 7....Nxc3 8. bxc3 c5.
   Sep-20-18 Bogoljubov - Nimzowitsch (1920)
RookFile: Fortune favors the bold. Nimzo was always trying to prevent his opponent from doing something, but Bogo tended to go for the throat.
   Sep-18-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
RookFile: Elo's rating system was around in the early 1960's. It just wasn't adopted by FIDE until later.
   Sep-18-18 Short vs Kasparov, 1993
RookFile: Adolf Anderssen would have thought this was cool.
   Sep-18-18 L Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978
RookFile: It seems like black is Arturo Anguiano, who is today a medical doctor. At one point he played in Boston and I believe won the Boylston Chess club championship one year.
   Sep-15-18 Kasparov vs Anand, 1995 (replies)
RookFile: As is well known, Morphy would not have a chance in today's day and age. He played the Evans Gambit. How romantic. Of course, such a weapon could never work today against today's modern GM's.
   Sep-14-18 Kmoch vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1926 (replies)
RookFile: White had a crushing position after 18 moves or so. Central pawn majority and weak dark squares around black's king. Yet for some reason the pawn power believer doesn't play 20. f4 - the position is practically screaming for this move. The game probably would have been over in ...
   Sep-07-18 Hikaru Nakamura
RookFile: It is true that if you want to make progress, you have to be willing to be uncomfortable.
   Sep-06-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
RookFile: I was just musing tonight that 57....g5 looks like it would lead to a draw. With black you follow up and put the king on g6 and there doesn't seem to be much for white to do. The only thing black has to do is keep rooks on the board. So, black's ...g5 move in this game was just ...
