   Oct-30-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
   Oct-28-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
RookFile: <jphamlore: What I will never understand is why Kasparov did not choose to attack Kramnik with 1. d4 instead of 1. e4 precisely because of Kasparov's skill versus the Nimzo-Indian. > I don't think Kramnik would have played the Nimzo, and my guess is that Kasparov didn't, ...

RookFile: Baloney. Beauty is beauty. Reshevsky was a champ at winning ugly. Nobody tries to be like him.
