   Apr-24-17 Samuel Reshevsky
 
RookFile: Reshevsky waited too long in his career to study the opening.
 
   Apr-22-17 Polugaevsky vs Lutikov, 1968 (replies)
 
RookFile: Lutikov had a great tournament but he wasn't in Polugaevsky's class.
 
   Apr-21-17 Fischer vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
 
RookFile: Fischer, Alekhine - those guys were motivated to say the least. Give them a computer like everybody else and they're right on top. An interesting guy to think about is Reshevsky. There was a guy who didn't know his openings but could calculate the daylights out of a position and ...
 
   Apr-20-17 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
 
RookFile: It sounds egotistical but with Capa it just happens to be the truth.
 
   Apr-17-17 Duchamp vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1931 (replies)
 
RookFile: Duchamp rushed this. He had a win but needed to take his time about it.
 
   Apr-15-17 Frank Brady vs S H Langer, 1960
 
RookFile: A good trap to remember.
 
   Apr-15-17 Benko vs Frank Brady, 1960
 
RookFile: White can just play 36. Rxe7. Brady saw this, so he resigned.
 
   Apr-14-17 Fred Reinfeld (replies)
 
RookFile: 1....Ba6 2. Nc6 Bxd3 3. Nxa5 Bxf1 4. Rxf1 Nd2 5. Bxg7 Kxg7 gives this position: [DIAGRAM] The problem for white is if he plays something like 6. Rd1, black replies ....Re2 with mating ideas.
 
   Apr-12-17 Nakamura vs J Xiong, 2017
 
RookFile: Not sure what the story with Nakamura is. His opponent isn't even in his league. It's certainly different than Tal going 4-0 over Fischer when Fischer was still a kid.
 
   Apr-11-17 P Sherwood vs Bisguier, 1999 (replies)
 
RookFile: 5...Ng4 is one of those move a GM plays, and then you say: "What do I do now?" Of course, there is an answer, but figuring it all out over the board is not so simple.
