   Aug-31-16 Fischer vs S Crown, 1964
RookFile: A tricky opening. Without a computer, I don't know what to do either. Maybe 10. f3 is ok.
   Aug-30-16 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1982 (replies)
RookFile: Wow, no obvious mistakes, and yet Bronstein is crushed. Petrosian had a way about him of maneuvering, never really appear to do anything - and then you resign.
   Aug-30-16 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1956
RookFile: With white, I would have followed up the queen blunder with 37. Nf7+. This unsound move gives check thereby limiting blacks options. Also, black would have to capture and then hit the clock with the same hand. Probably, Bronstein's flag would have fallen.
   Aug-25-16 Marshall vs Showalter, 1898
RookFile: Showalter plays an aggressive ...c5, hoping to play for a win. It doesn't work out for him.
   Aug-25-16 Spassky vs Portisch, 1980
RookFile: Spassky had lost an earlier game with white, so he wanted to regain some confidence with a draw. It's certainly not Fischer playing .....Nh5 in a Benoni after already being down two points in a match. But, it may have been the right decision at this point for Spassky.
   Aug-25-16 Spassky vs Portisch, 1980
RookFile: Have to give Portisch all the credit in the world. I know for sure I wouldn't have to have had black here, with the fate of the match at stake.
   Aug-25-16 Portisch - Larsen Candidates Quarterfinal (1977)
RookFile: Sounds like Larsen was a pretty distracted dude during this match.
   Aug-25-16 Geller vs Fischer, 1965
RookFile: I'm pretty sure the last thing in the world Fischer would want to do is sit there and watch Geller gloat over yet another winning position if he didn't feel he had at least a shot of getting a draw. But then I remembered that Fischer and Geller would have been hundreds of miles ...
   Aug-25-16 A Gandhi vs W Fisher, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: I'm sure it's all sound, and I know Nigel Short did something like this once - but I don't usually march my king towards the other guy's army with heavy pieces on the board. I find that aspect of this game pretty remarkable.
   Aug-23-16 Ivanchuk vs Dreev, 1996
RookFile: 8. Nc3 was a very good move. Part of a scheme to trade this knight for black's best piece, the d6 bishop. Better than castling, I think.
