   Mar-27-15 Savon vs Spassky, 1962 (replies)
RookFile: Brave play by Spassky. Don't recall seeing something like 24. Nh6+ hxg6 25. Qxf6 Qxh3 checkmate before, even if here it wasn't played out on the board.
   Mar-27-15 Tal vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
RookFile: This was an off day for Petrosian. Tal made him look like one of Morphy's opponents.
   Mar-26-15 B Ivanovic vs Hector, 1988
RookFile: A rather remarkable rook ending.
   Mar-25-15 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1987 (replies)
RookFile: Perhaps the simplest reason is that Karpov was ahead a pawn. Position after 33. Qd1: [DIAGRAM] Nobody would play 33....Nc5 without understanding that after 34. Qd8+ and Qxc8 black and play ....Qa1+ and retake on e5. It's hard to even come up with a threat for white, isn't it?
   Mar-25-15 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990
RookFile: Andy Soltis remarked that it is permissible to give yourself a bad bishop if in the meantime you get active play with your rooks.
   Mar-25-15 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
RookFile: Fischer had a pawn for the exchange. Then, ask yourself just how scared you are of the isolated e4 pawn. A draw is a perfectly expected outcome.
   Mar-23-15 Aron Nimzowitsch (replies)
RookFile: Bobby Fischer chose to win the game. If he could have done with the Tarrasch, he would have. He was just thinking about what he needed to do to beat Spassky.
   Mar-22-15 E Tate vs J R Stopa, 1990 (replies)
RookFile: Black's last name is pronounced "Stow pa"
   Mar-20-15 Chigorin vs Schiffers, 1880
RookFile: I guess there was a hallucination involved. It had me going for a minute, but then you realize the king can escape.
   Mar-19-15 Kramnik vs Anand, 2008
RookFile: Looking back on this game 5 years later, I find it remarkable that Anand could so calmly play a line where he is a pawn down. Obviously he knew the position very well.
