   Jun-05-18 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1955 (replies)
RookFile: Somebody above said that Korchnoi at the time of this game was one of the top 10 players. If that's true, he didn't show it in this tournament. He got slapped around pretty good and almost finished last.
   Jun-05-18 Quinteros vs Seirawan, 1985 (replies)
RookFile: 14. Ndf3 looks like a good try for white. It brings another piece into the attack on the king, and threatens Qc2 or Qd3. I think that white just plain old wins if you play it this way.
   Jun-04-18 Alekhine vs Lasker, 1924 (replies)
RookFile: You can see why Tal thought Lasker was the greatest of them all. A senior has no business beating Alekhine near his prime. Yet that is exactly what Lasker does.
   Jun-01-18 H Steiner vs Denker, 1946
RookFile: This is a good defense to play, simple and easy to remember. Bxf3 is a good choice too by black. He gets his draw without difficulty.
   Jun-01-18 Denker vs Botvinnik, 1945 (replies)
RookFile: Natural talent vs. Professional player.
   May-30-18 Korchnoi vs Mednis, 1956 (replies)
RookFile: I'm sure that black should have been crushed. There's no way that moving the f6 knight several times (including eventually a6 and then c7) can be a good chess strategy.
   May-30-18 Mednis vs Smyslov, 1975
RookFile: King of humorous that both GM's overlooked the rook capture but I'm sure you're right.
   May-27-18 Shirov - Kramnik WCC Candidates Match (1998)
RookFile: Let's not all go to pieces now.
   May-18-18 Lasker vs Randolph, 1907
RookFile: Black could have traded queens at one point. But, he would have had a tough ending to try to hold.
   May-16-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
RookFile: Strange game. This looked like a fairly routine Karpov win for more than half the game. I guess he just relaxed too soon.
