   Sep-25-20 Leonid Stein (replies)
ARubinstein: <harrylime: Stein was a good commie Bobby had his number tho> Yes, Fischer won a grand total of ONE game against Stein... They only played twice, with one draw and one win for Fischer. The only player who really had Stein's number was Efim Geller. Geller won 7, drew 8, ...
   Sep-23-20 Samuel Reshevsky (replies)
ARubinstein: Also worth noting, it seems that Reshevsky was two years older than his official date of birth (November 26, 1911) suggests, somewhat dampering his storied feats as a child prodigy (still impressive, no doubt, but two years less impressive). As Soszynski reveals in "The Great ...
   Jul-02-20 Mikhail Botvinnik (replies)
ARubinstein: No question about it, Botvinnik was a big favorite against Alekhine by the time the match was being planned. Botvinnik was by far the strongest player in the world throughout the 1940s.
   May-31-19 Grischuk vs Nakamura, 2019
ARubinstein: <john barleycorn: A true pupil of Kasparov. Has to show somewhere> So true! Hilarious
   Feb-21-12 Paul Morphy (replies)
ARubinstein: Believe me, it's a complete waste of time arguing with the "most talented ever" fundamentalists who act as though they can prove their case (regardless of which chess hero they adopt). All too often Morphy is their religion and Fischer their prophet. A rational, measured ...

ARubinstein: a true innovator and pioneer in chess openings.
   Jul-28-11 Shirov vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
ARubinstein: <LIFE Master AJ: Insane. How does a 2700+ player lose with the White pieces?> Absolutely shocking. I guess there's a first for everything...
   Jul-27-11 Fine vs Keres, 1938 (replies)
ARubinstein: <Legend: Keres once said that this is the best game he ever played.> Where did you read that? I feel this game is a bit overrated. It was of enormous significance for the tournament, of course, and it's an interesting game, but for me this doesn't rank among Keres' top ...
   May-26-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
ARubinstein: People calling Anand-Gelfand a "mismatch" or a "cake walk for Anand" don't know what they're talking about. It will be a close and competitive match. Gelfand excels in match preparation and is much more dangerous in matches than tournaments. Gelfand is also one of the only ...
   May-26-11 Boris Gelfand (replies)
ARubinstein: Congratulations Gelfand!!!
