   Apr-26-15 Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1929 (replies)
RookFile: The interesting part is good. Pillsbury was the same way, you can pick a game of his at random - win, lose, or draw, and find it was always interesting.
   Apr-25-15 Adams vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
RookFile: Excellent play by Adams.
   Apr-25-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015
RookFile: Anand was close to winning this game.
   Apr-24-15 Botvinnik vs Euwe, 1938
RookFile: Cautious play by Botvinnik.
   Apr-24-15 AVRO (1938) (replies)
RookFile: There is some guy these days named Magnus who was doing pretty well when he was 22. You're right that Keres had a long an successful career, and was playing strong chess even 20+ years later.
   Apr-23-15 Euwe vs Keres, 1938
RookFile: It looks like Euwe had an advantage. I was sure he was going to win. Somehow Keres broke out of the pins.
   Apr-23-15 W So vs Akobian, 2015 (replies)
RookFile: You put it well. He got to play more games after the forfeit. The forfeit was very bad, extinction from the tournament even worse. The forfeit wasn't necessary. Forgotten in all of this is what Akobian complained about. He said he couldn't concentrate. We'll take him at his word ...
   Apr-22-15 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927 (replies)
RookFile: I guess the key position in the game is this: [DIAGRAM] Folks questioned Capa giving up the pawn. Obviously he saw this position coming and figured his active rook would allow him to hold the draw. I'm just looking at it and thinking I would think the same too, hacker that I am. ...
   Apr-22-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
RookFile: There is a large percentage of players today who wouldn't even being playing chess if it were not for the Fischer vs. Spassky match.
   Apr-21-15 Anand vs W So, 2015 (replies)
RookFile: He's accurate with what he knows. The trick is to get him into something he doesn't. Easier said than done.
