   Jan-18-17 Taimanov vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
RookFile: I appreciate the pun. Let the buyer beware. So Taimanov wins the game, and at the moment, he probably thought it was a good thing. However, that meant he got to play Fischer, and we all know what happened in that match.
   Jan-18-17 Petrosian vs H Bohm, 1975 (replies)
RookFile: Always nice to see the boa constrictor at work. That bishop on a3 was terrific in the opening.
   Jan-16-17 Sousse Interzonal (1967)
RookFile: Sure, you count the Panno game. Fischer played 1. c4 and Panno showed up and resigned. Perhaps a rare occasion where Fischer was the sane one and his opponent was being a little crazy. For me, if I had a chance to play the world's #1 rated player, I'd take it.
   Jan-13-17 Bogoljubov vs Marshall, 1925
RookFile: That's Marshall for you. Active, active, active in the endgame. He refuses to have a passive rook, even if there was the small matter of being down two pawns. Marshall earns a draw with his active rook.
   Jan-13-17 Arkadij Naiditsch
RookFile: 18th in the world is pretty good.
   Jan-12-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
RookFile: At some point, Fischer stopped making mistakes in the endgame, through a lot of hard work. It pretty much became the story that if Fischer had an advantage in the ending, he was going to win.
   Jan-12-17 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
RookFile: 33... Qxg3 has a sense of humor to it.
   Jan-10-17 Kavalek vs Reshevsky, 1967
RookFile: Not bad to have a defense like this in your arsenal that gives you a draw against a strong player without too much effort.
   Jan-10-17 Spassky vs Miles, 1983 (replies)
RookFile: I think Spassky was afraid of counterplay down the g file, but the computer sees there's no way for black to set that up.
   Jan-10-17 Reshevsky vs O Sarapu, 1967
RookFile: Pretty cold blooded finish by Reshevsky.
