   RookFile has kibitzed 17219 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-09-19 Marshall vs Saemisch, 1925
RookFile: The computer says 15. exd6 is crushing.
   Dec-07-19 Nimzowitsch vs Hakansson, 1922
RookFile: Nimzo did well when he opponent played like a dead fish. Black probably had half a dozen moves better than 6....f5, for example.
   Dec-05-19 Lasker - Tarrasch World Championship Match (1908)
RookFile: The nerve of those people, having a world war 1. They should have realized that they were interfering with more important chess events.
   Dec-05-19 H Wolf vs Pillsbury, 1903
RookFile: Stockfish thinks 23. Rhg1 is the best move. It's hard to believe Pillsbury survived this, the game had 1-0 written all over it.
   Dec-04-19 Tal vs Korchnoi, 1968 (replies)
RookFile: Well, there was a period, if brief, where Tal was without question the best player in the world. I can't think of a time where the same could be said of Korchnoi.
   Dec-03-19 Fischer vs Pilnik, 1959 (replies)
RookFile: 15...Bb6? was an interesting moment. Evidently black wanted to prevent something like Bh4 and Bxf6 and white dominates the d5 square. But that e7 bishop would have been a good kingside defender, so the Bb6 play was off base.
   Nov-20-19 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1962
RookFile: No joke, many times in these lines black wants to play ...Ng4 but that's not going to happen now. Fischer himself said that since black used a tempo with ...a6 maybe it's ok for white to use one with h3.
   Nov-08-19 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
RookFile: It's a pity that neither Spassky nor Fischer wrote a book about this match. There must be a lot of unrevealed secrets.
   Nov-05-19 W Frere vs F Reinfeld, 1926 (replies)
RookFile: Never seen anybody play the Evans gambit then say I need to trade off the c4 bishop as fast as I can, before this game.
   Nov-01-19 Showalter vs Blackburne, 1889
RookFile: Black did well to survive as long as he did, but the result was not in doubt. A good reply to 43. Kxg4 is "Black resigns". Once white gets that h pawn possibility, an exchange up, there's nothing left to do.
