   Feb-26-23 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892
 
Capacorn: Just came across this fantastic game again in Kasparov’s My Great Predecessors, Part I. Never fails to delight! Chess history is so rich — just teeming with brilliance! What course would the game had taken, had the young lion Chigorin won? He came awful close. Good thing ...
 
   Feb-26-23 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1892
 
Capacorn: Screw 19. a5! Chigorin was the man! Steinitz was also. What a great match this was. I never knew! Just learning about it now, making my way through Kasparov’s My Great Predecessors, Part I.
 
   Dec-27-21 Carlsen vs H Bharathakoti, 2021
 
Capacorn: Of course, the world champion would see this little tactic in a blitz game. Oh, if only… Lol
 
   Sep-04-21 Fischer vs Gligoric, 1966 (replies)
 
Capacorn: Just got through checking this game out in Soltis’s Bobby Fischer Rediscovered, then reading the comments. I echo the words of many: Hard to believe a player of Gligoric’s caliber would be so easily handled. Really the sort of game I’d expect to see in a blitz match between ...
 
   Sep-03-21 A Pomar Salamanca vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
 
Capacorn: Truly this game deserves more attention. A very instructive and fun positional effort (generally), with various tactical fine points: connected passed pawns, exchange sacrifice, weak back rank, the power of the bishop pair, etc. Fischer sets up the connected passers as early as ...
 
   Aug-16-20 Capablanca vs R T Black, 1911
 
Capacorn: Just went over another game played between these two in 1916, covered in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” At one point, Capa had Q for R,B & P, with Black’s king relatively safe. After the latter’s 38th move, Kf8, Capa remarks, “Black here starts a very unfortunate ...
 
   Aug-15-20 Capablanca vs Ruiz / Molina, 1914
 
Capacorn: In “My Chess Career,” Capa says, after 39.Qxd6, “And black resigned after a few more moves.” He does this several times throughout the book, something I find slightly annoying. Obviously black is lost, but I would still like to know the complete game score. As far as I can ...
 
   Aug-15-20 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
Capacorn: Just got done going over this game in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” I’ve gained a new appreciation for his play. Yeah, everyone says he was a genius (and there’s no doubting all the experts), but you have to reach a certain level of proficiency to appreciate his ...
 
   Jan-28-18 Leinier Dominguez Perez (replies)
 
Capacorn: <BartPL: @Capacorn Dominguez was removed from FIDE chess rating because in over one year he didn't play any official game. His rating is frozen at 2739 ELO points.> Thanks, Bart. Makes perfect sense, now that you mention it. I was at a loss as to why he up and *poofed*. ...
 
   Dec-04-17 I Schneider vs Yudasin, 2001
 
Capacorn: Surprised there aren’t more comments. Really nice game, with some explosive tactics.
