   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: I think Anand played at the highest level he was still capable of in this match, and he's to be congratulated for that. Congratulations also to Carlsen for showing that he's still the champ.
   Nov-22-14 P Bobrov vs Lasker, 1899
RookFile: I think 9. Ne5 would have been white's most flexible move. You're going to play it anyway, so why not now when there is no objection to it. It's not clear that you want to play Rc1 or even 0-0 yet. For example, after an early Ne5, you preserve a possibility of g4 and h4 from white.
   Nov-22-14 Smyslov vs Polugaevsky, 1961 (replies)
RookFile: It's strange, I think that a random amateur in a 5 minute game would bash out 25. Qh5. Black has resources after 25....Qxd4+ (for example a later ...Qd2 with the idea of ....Qh6), but 25. Qh5 has to be the move here.

   Nov-21-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: Hey, this is a good game. Vishy kept his chances alive. He needs to get a draw with black next time to have one last chance.
   Nov-21-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: Carlsen must have analyzed the position up to 20. Ng5 with computers before the game even started. A draw is not a bad play, evidently he wants to rest for his next game with black.
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
RookFile: When you're talking the best, you think of guys that were head and shoulders above their well respected opposition. Players like that that come to mind include Morphy, Steinitz, Lasker, Capa, Alekhine, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov. Rubinstein and other great players would be ...

RookFile: I won't be seeing Mr. Bisguier or anybody else soon. Haven't played tournament chess in some time.
   Nov-18-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: 4. g3 was not obligatory in this game. 4. a3 is a well known system that might have been played instead.
   Nov-18-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
RookFile: I realize Carlsen is supposed to change his opening, but my guess is he won't. He did fine with the Queen's Indian in game 5. It's a perfectly solid opening and a good choice for today's game.
