   Feb-10-16 Spassky vs Geller, 1968
RookFile: I think Geller thought the attack was a bluff too. There is a place for bluffing in poker. Maybe in chess, too?
   Feb-09-16 Tal vs Lisitsin, 1956
RookFile: Lisitsin played a good game in defeat.
   Feb-09-16 Korchnoi vs Hjartarson, 1988
RookFile: Well said, both Nimzo and Tarrasch were students of Steinitz. They had different ways of expressing Steinitz's ideas.
   Feb-09-16 Santasiere vs Marshall, 1941
RookFile: This is modern, dynamic chess from one of its great pioneers.
   Feb-09-16 Ray Charles vs Larry Evans, 2002
RookFile: In an over the board game, the way you play this is to try 25. a4 with white, and have a total air of resignation about yourself. Maybe you can catch black napping and sneak in a timely b4 (or c3 and b4), forcing the a pawn down the board, especially if black just runs his king ...

   Feb-09-16 G Borisenko vs Lepichin, 1954
RookFile: Black was holding his own for quite a ways in this game.
   Feb-07-16 Smyslov vs Gligoric, 1959 (replies)
RookFile: One thing about Gligoric was he was terrific at opening play. The same with Fischer. Evidently, around this time, for whatever reason, Smyslov had not been putting the work into his openings that he might have. He resigns after Gligoric's 18....Bf5. Later, in the same tournament, ...
   Feb-06-16 A Aurbach vs Alekhine, 1925
RookFile: Interesting game. Black was better but white kept finding resources.
   Feb-05-16 Tseshkovsky vs Z Hlousek, 1969
RookFile: Beautiful endgame play by white, starting with f4 and f5 to fix that pawn on f6.
