   Oct-24-16 N Baktach vs Marjorie Herrera, 2016
RookFile: 45....g5 is also good but it lets white get a few worthless checks in with Qe4+ first. 45....Ne2+ is more forcing.
   Oct-24-16 Moscow (1967)
RookFile: Fischer at this tournament would have thought that Stein's 6 wins were cute. I see Fischer putting up something like 10 wins and 2 losses with his style of play.
   Oct-24-16 Prince Dadian vs S Kostrovitsky, 1896 (replies)
RookFile: I'm not an opening expert, but proper play with the King's Gambit probably involves something other than moving 6 pawns in the first 8 moves and hoping for the best.
   Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs I Morovic, 1977
RookFile: Yes.... with that Bxb3 black didn't allow Na5.
   Oct-24-16 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
RookFile: Normally in the queen's gambit accepted, when black plays cxd4 white plays exd4, cheerfully accepting the isolated d pawn but using it as a battering ram with d5. But here, in this deferred version of the queen's gambit accepted, 10. exd4 and d5 leads only to equality. Evidently ...
   Oct-24-16 G MacDonnell vs J Wisker, 1874
RookFile: Oh, if black had just played 33...Qxf2. I'm not sure if his play was sound, but it was daring, and with two pawns up, he has every reason to trade queens.
   Oct-23-16 Huebner vs Kramnik, 1996 (replies)
RookFile: Too bad. This was a good game by Huebner and he deserved better than this.
   Oct-22-16 Kasparov vs Smyslov, 1984
RookFile: I don't know what you would look for regarding evidence. Sort of laughable when you think about it. You're not going to open some archive 50 years from now and read a signed confession from these guys.
   Oct-21-16 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1964
RookFile: This is what happens when you try to "wing it" in the opening. It's even more true today, you don't dare to get into some lines unless you put the prep work in first.
   Oct-21-16 Short vs Yifan Hou, 2016
RookFile: I realize this is the English Opening, but another way of looking at Short's first few moves is that he is playing a French Defense setup with a move in hand. Certainly a very safe choice to preserve a match lead.
