   Apr-19-14 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
RookFile: Being the champ is a heavy burden. Maybe Anand will play this one like he has nothing to lose.
   Apr-19-14 Capablanca vs B Kostic, 1919 (replies)
RookFile: Sure, there are exceptions. I think the difference is that black invested in both ...d5 and ...f5 in this game.
   Apr-19-14 B Kostic vs Capablanca, 1919
RookFile: The defender rushes his king towards the passed f pawn. Natural, but it's exactly what he shouldn't do. If he has a hope, it's to keep his king in a spot where it's hard to check the king and force the queen trade. White has to try for perpetual check himself.
   Apr-19-14 Fine vs Gruenfeld, 1936 (replies)
RookFile: Lol, I never knew that. I just had this crazy idea Lasker wanted to win the game.
   Apr-19-14 Tal vs Benko, 1959 (replies)
RookFile: Tal was just a nice friendly guy who wanted to rip your head off. :)
   Apr-17-14 Garry Kasparov
RookFile: Lasker was pretty good.
   Apr-17-14 Tartakower vs Capablanca, 1936
RookFile: I think 8. 0-0 was a little too automatic by white. More dangerous is 8. Ne5, i.e. ... Nxe5 9. dxe5 Nd7 10. Bf4! as Petrosian played.

RookFile: In other words, you can't point to any example of anything she has said that is false.
   Apr-17-14 Leko vs Kamsky, 2008
RookFile: I think white was playing on the wrong side of the board in this game. Kingside attack was the way to go.
   Apr-16-14 Morphy vs C Golmayo, 1864
RookFile: Zupide knew how the pieces moved, I guess: C Golmayo vs Steinitz, 1867
