   Jul-22-17 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909
RookFile: I thought Marshall should have gone for a4 and a5 in the early middlegame. Apparently he thought so too, because he played this later, in the only game he won in this match.
   Jul-22-17 Paul Morphy (replies)
RookFile: The only thing he did was take on all comers and beat them, then offer the entire world the odds of pawn and move. He wasn't kidding, and his opponents were too scared to take him up on his offer. You're talking about a guy who gave a <simul> to 4 of the world's best players ...
   Jul-22-17 Tal vs Korchnoi, 1973
RookFile: 14. Nc4 would have been ok because you do something about the misplaced b2 knight. I would think it would appeal to a guy like Tal because if you can get rid of that d6 knight of black's, maybe at some point you can sneak in Qh6 for white.
   Jul-20-17 Pillsbury vs W Napier, 1902 (replies)
RookFile: Black's counter-attack sure looked dangerous.
   Jul-18-17 Aron Nimzowitsch
RookFile: So I know that Petrosian studied from Nimzo. He did a good job of taking what was useful, and also adding a more dynamic content to his game than what Nimzo had.
   Jul-17-17 N Weinstein vs Petrosian, 1976
RookFile: Weinstein wasn't even in Petrosian's league. Maybe Petrosian just wanted a rest day. It worked out for Petrosian because he won the tournament.
   Jul-17-17 Fischer vs R Weinstein, 1958
RookFile: I thought Weinstein for the most part played a really good game here. He went astray somewhere in the endgame but the middlegame was very interesting.
   Jul-16-17 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
RookFile: It reminds me of Pillsbury with white.
   Jul-15-17 Bronstein vs Benko, 1949
RookFile: Hard to believe Benko held this. He was lost and had to basically play perfect moves to even have a chance. He was rewarded for his defensive efforts.
   Jul-11-17 Lasker vs Botvinnik, 1936
RookFile: Lasker's play made sense. Black was able to trade knight for g5 bishop. Therefore Lasker made sure he put his pawns on the dark squares, to improve the prospects of his remaining light squared bishop and to fight for the dark squares too.
