   May-02-16 Kashdan vs Menchik, 1932
 
RookFile: Black might have tried either 16....c3, trying to get rid of the weak c4 pawn, of 16....Qc7, hanging tight. Then it's an uphill fight to a draw in an inferior position.
 
   May-02-16 Kashdan vs Alekhine, 1932
 
RookFile: I like how Kashdan played this. He always had the draw in hand.
 
   May-01-16 Lawyer Times
 
RookFile: Very good at blitz chess. Probably played him a dozen times, he wins without mercy.
 
   May-01-16 Ultimate Blitz Challenge (2016) (replies)
 
RookFile: Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. Example of a riddle: Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Answer a fool
 
   May-01-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
RookFile: He's already successfully defended his title, which is more than a lot of champions can say.
 
   May-01-16 Tinsley vs Pillsbury, 1899 (replies)
 
RookFile: If you told somebody that Carlsen had black he would probably believe you. The game has a completely modern look to it.
 
   Apr-30-16 Tal vs Grave, 1965 (replies)
 
RookFile: 1 Corinthians 15, from the venerable King James version: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
 
   Apr-30-16 Caruana vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
 
RookFile: White had chances to play the rather odd move Nxa7. For example maybe you play 26. Nxa7, or bxc5 first and then Nxa7. The idea is to get the knight back in the game with Nc6. Not the sort of move you think about when Kasparov is attacking your kingside, but it might have helped.
 
   Apr-28-16 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
 
RookFile: A roller-coaster of a game. Both sides enjoyed winning positions at various points.
 
   Apr-28-16 Reshevsky vs Browne, 1974 (replies)
 
RookFile: Hard to believe Reshevsky could lose this. 33. Bxc5 and there's nothing to talk about here with opposite colored bishops.
