   Dec-01-15 Saemisch vs Nimzowitsch, 1923 (replies)
RookFile: I wonder if 13. Nxd5 with a white advantage was known in those days.
   Nov-28-15 Capablanca vs Schlechter, 1911 (replies)
RookFile: You can sometimes survive a bad bishop vs. a good bishop. It's a knight vs. bad bishop that will kill the side with the bishop.
   Nov-27-15 Samuel Reshevsky
RookFile: That's the difference between Reshevsky and Spassky. When you forfeit a game to Reshevsky, he just says thank you. With Reshevsky, it's win first and ask questions later.
   Nov-25-15 Akobian vs A Lein, 2008
RookFile: Black's queenside was put to sleep.
   Nov-24-15 Fischer vs Keres, 1962 (replies)
RookFile: 23. b3 was mentioned in this thread as far back as 2008, it seems. It really is a remarkable move. The main point is that after something like 23....Na5 24. Qe5 sets up murderous threats.
   Nov-24-15 A Flumbort vs A Lazar, 2001
RookFile: If 49....Rxh3 50. Kf6 and white has put black's king in a mating bag.
   Nov-23-15 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1935
RookFile: 9.... f5 might not be bad. It would sort of be a delayed Dutch and black even got white's dark squared bishop as part of the deal. However, black is behind in development. White could consider a g4 move at some point to try to open things up.
   Nov-23-15 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 1994
RookFile: 30....Rxf2 31. Kxf2 Rd2+ 32. Kg3 Rxa2. Looks tempting, but then white recoups with 33. Rc8+ Ke7 34. Rh8 and the h pawn cannot escape. White would then be better. Kramnik isn't having any of this and just plays 30.... Rd1+ and makes a draw.
   Nov-22-15 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1927
RookFile: Good play by Spielmann. I preferred his position throughout this game.
   Nov-21-15 Fine vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
RookFile: White moved too many pawns in the opening.
