RookFile: Guys, I have to agree with Harry on this one. In particular, Naka has been a little dismissive of Fischer. You don't get that right until you've won the title of world champion, at least. Fischer said, "I am the best player in the world, and I am here to prove it." Then he backed ...

RookFile: Some people don't make jokes when others get hurt.

RookFile: White didn't do anything all game.

RookFile: 11....Bh6 was bad.

RookFile: Hey, this is a great game. Maybe someday we should suggest they make it the game of the day.

RookFile: Which would make no sense, considering that either Capa or Alekhine or maybe even old Lasker would slap him around in a match.
 
   Jun-04-22 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1909
 
RookFile: He may have been hoping to sneak fxe4 fxe4 Rd2 in and round up the b2 pawn. With Kf3 white now has the option of recapturing with the king.

RookFile: That criticism might apply more aptly to Karpov, whose main competition was basically Korchnoi. How quickly we forget about Fischer defeating Bent Larsen 6-0, who was playing the best chess of his life until losing to Fischer. For example, Bent played on Board 1 of the 1970 USSR vs
