[what is this?]

   RookFile has kibitzed 15166 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-07-15 Larsen vs Fischer, 1966
RookFile: Well, Kf2 invites ...Bd4 at some point from black. Maybe he prepares it with ...a6 first (to stop Nb5). Don't know, it's kind of late.
   Jul-06-15 NN vs Pandolfini, 1967
RookFile: One of those traps worth knowing. 5. Bf4 has a lot going for it strategically. It just has a little tactical flaw...
   Jul-06-15 Anand vs I Sokolov, 1992
RookFile: Black insufficiently covered e5, allowing the e5 thrust from white.
   Jul-06-15 Tal vs Suetin, 1969
RookFile: Different people may feel differently about this, but I think ...Bf6 and ...Bxc3 was a mistake from black. It's kind of nice to have a piece with black that can help defend the dark squares. My viewpoint is that you put the bishop on e7 and leave it there.
   Jul-06-15 Frank James Marshall (replies)
RookFile: Well, if you're a chess professional, you can prepare 3...g5 in the King's Gambit. I think the rest of us hackers can content ourselves with either 2...Bc5 or an early ...d5 break, as Marshall says. I was an ...e5 player for many years, maybe I saw a grand total of 10 King's ...
   Jul-06-15 Johannes Zukertort
RookFile: Only 45 when he died. What a shame.
   Jul-06-15 Anderssen vs Zukertort, 1869
RookFile: Just a good old boys... never meaning no harm....
   Jul-06-15 Winawer vs S Rosenthal, 1870
RookFile: This is a nifty attack by Winawer. The line opening 25. e5! exploits the rook on f7. Give black an extra move or two and maybe he holds, but Winawer doesn't give him the chance.
   Jul-06-15 Morphy vs J McConnell, 1849
RookFile: Black choses the slap-around variation in this game.
   Jul-05-15 Tarrasch vs A Fritz, 1889 (replies)
RookFile: Good for Fritz. He caught Tarrasch sleeping here and got a good draw.
