   Aug-19-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
 
...
 
   Aug-19-14 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969
 
RookFile: When you build a dam like Petrosian did, either the whole thing holds or a decisive break tears the whole thing down. There is no in between.
 
   Aug-18-14 Fischer vs Jose R Arrupe y Diego, 1970
 
RookFile: Fischer on auto-pilot. I doubt that the took 5 minutes for the whole game.
 
   Aug-17-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
 
RookFile: Topalov does the same thing. He keeps trying to set problems for the opponent, no matter what. In this case, Bxh2 didn't work. It happens.
 
   Aug-16-14 Komodo vs Stockfish, 2014
 
RookFile: The final positon is like a computer evergreen game.
 
   Aug-16-14 Korchnoi - Spassky Candidates Final (1977)
 
RookFile: I don't think Korchnoi won any awards for Miss Congeniality.
 
   Aug-16-14 Rubinstein vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
RookFile: Lasker was capable of anything, of course. And by the way, Marshall was known to take a risk or two.
 
   Aug-13-14 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1996
 
RookFile: Well, Kasparov offered a draw on move 23, so it wasn't that bad. It's incredible that the computer walked into self-pins in an open game.
 
   Aug-13-14 Morphy vs S Lewis, 1859
 
RookFile: Beautiful chess by Morphy, started with his wise placement of the knight on h3.
 
   Aug-13-14 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
 
RookFile: Greatness is in the eyes of the beholder. Let's say Fischer wins 9 games and losses 1. Under this measurement, he didn't do as well as the guy who wins 2 games and draws 8.
