   Jan-27-05 Keres vs Botvinnik, 1948 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: You forgot to mention the part where they put the screws to Keres for 3 hours before his game with Smyslov, and told Keres to make a draw with White. Keres refused: but he was not in a proper mood to play the game. Bronstein says that Smyslov was fully aware before the game ...
   Jan-26-05 Botvinnik vs Reshevsky, 1948 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: Well, take the case of 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Bxc6 dxc6 5. d4 exd4. This is the old way they used to play the Ruy Lopez exchange variation, Lasker rolled up some nice victories with it. What is not quite as well known is that Rubinstein was very happy to be black here,
   Jan-26-05 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1937 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: Well, there was a position shortly after the opening, where I could get a sense of what Reshevsky may have been thinking. White's queen is on g3, bishop on e3, with kings castled on opposite sides of the board. I imagine that Reshevsky figured the black pawn storm ...
   Jan-26-05 Judit Polgar vs Kasparov, 2002 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: Somebody said that Fischer played moves by psychology. A rather ridiculous statement, Fischer was like Steinitz, he played the board, not the man. Until he varied his openings for the Spassky match, anybody in the world could more or less know how the first 10 moves or so of a
   Jan-24-05 Mecking vs Reshevsky, 1973 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: Reshevsky was good enough to beat Botvinnik 2.5 to 1.5 during their small match in 1955. Funny how you don't hear a lot about that match, the Russians didn't exactly want to publicize that one. The games you see mostly are from the 1948 tournament, where ...
   Jan-23-05 Mecking vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: but how do you evaluate the position after 22. Be2 e5 23. dc Rxc5 24. Be7 Rxc3 25. Bxf8 Bxf8 26. Qb2 Bb4, with a notion of 27.... Rc2
   Jan-18-05 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1965 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: JohnnyRambo: Actually, it's humorous that this is called the "Fischer" variation of the Nimzo, when you consider that Reshevsky played this opening variation against Alekhine in 1938, varying with 9. Bxe4 in that game. This was a few years before Fischer was even born. It's not ...
   Jan-18-05 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1961 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: I believe that Reshevsky basically invented the ...Ng4 idea in this variation of the opening, and this weapon was one of the reasons why Fischer was not able to pull ahead of him during their match.
   Jan-18-05 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: Sure, Reshevsky blundered in the opening. But, Reshevsky played well after this, when you consider that in the final position it's a Queen versus a Rook and Knight for White. The a pawn guarantees a win for white. But in their 1965 game, Fischer played on, with just a rook ...
   Jan-18-05 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
JohnnyRambo: It was a shame that Reshevsky didn't have more time here. Give him just an extra minute and he realizes that 32. Rc1 is better than 32. Re1. I think 32.... Be6 is forced, and then obviously there are no mate threats for white to worry about. If instead 32... h5 then Reshevsky's ...
