   Jan-26-15 Beer vs G Neumann, 1866
RookFile: I'll drink to that!
   Jan-26-15 N Barsalou vs B Wall, 1980 (replies)
RookFile: Nice game by Mr. Wall. I've found his games to be entertaining and helpful over the years.
   Jan-23-15 N G Engholm vs Kashdan, 1934 (replies)
RookFile: Whoever black was, he was pretty cold blooded. He allows a bishop sac on h7, but within a few moves it is white playing for the draw.
   Jan-20-15 Z Vranesic vs Reshevsky, 1964
RookFile: Reshevsky playing a Benoni. This guy finished last; Reshevsky went all out from move 1 to make sure he beat him.
   Jan-20-15 Russell Wilson (replies)
RookFile: Agreed perfidious. Not sure if I got the first handful of chips in my mouth before that one was over.
   Jan-19-15 Kasparov vs Portisch, 1983
RookFile: I know that white won a lot of games with this a3 system. The question is what to do about it. I think Korchnoi had the right idea. Play g6. Portisch might have played 7.....g6, for example. It aims to transpose the game into an a Gruenfeld where white has been not as aggressive in
   Jan-18-15 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1961 (replies)
RookFile: I think it's an example of what Kasparov said about the Reshevky match toughening Fischer up. Consider for example Fischer's final game against Spassky in 1972, the one that gave him the world championship. He stayed up all night analyzing his heart out, leaving nothing to chance. ...
   Jan-16-15 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1895
RookFile: You don't bluff with Steinitz. Black's kingside play looked dangerous, but Steinitz is not afraid.
   Jan-16-15 St. Petersburg (1895/96) (replies)
RookFile: What a strong tournament. In every round you're playing a guy who would be strong enough to contest a match for the world championship.
   Jan-16-15 Lasker vs Pillsbury, 1895
RookFile: The Petrov is a good opening. Black gets that e4 pawn off the board early. He is certainly fighting for the center, and that c8 bishop comes right out and finds good work to do.
