   Apr-23-23 Hans Niemann (replies)
SteinitzLives: With the world chess radar all over Niemann, we likely need not ever be concerned about him cheating ever again. The last cheating allegations (for which he has sued various parties) were at the Sinquefield cup (where the consensus is he did not cheat) and that was EIGHT ...
   Apr-21-23 Nepomniachtchi vs Ding Liren, 2023 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Nepo's king is stable and active. Ding's king? The Rook trade has set him back literally, which ultimately may or may not matter.
   Apr-18-23 Nepomniachtchi vs Ding Liren, 2023 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Part of great intense focus is blocking out audience and media stuff, as much as zeroing in on the details of the game. With so few draws, 7.5 looks like it will be happening well before game 14, so Nepo's extra weight likely won't impact the stamina needed. Some players ...
   Apr-11-23 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
SteinitzLives: If one has ever played any of Leonard Nimoy's albums, one will know why he should have been perfectly happy to be Spock. Michael Jordan thought he could play baseball. As for Carlsen, I won't judge until he tries his hand at something else.

SteinitzLives: I think an investigation is in order. Anonymity is the last refuge of the humble, which would challenge the chess brand.
   Mar-07-23 Nepomniachtchi - Ding World Championship Match (2023) (replies)
SteinitzLives: There is more variety in Classic time controls than in Blitz chess. I find that I win, lose and draw for too many stupid or elementary reasons when I play blitz, and have a completely different attitude towards it. Although fun to both play and watch, I just can't take blitz ...
   Jan-25-23 Carlsen vs Rapport, 2023
SteinitzLives: As someone who winds up on both sides of the Petroff (yet I still love chess ;-), I know that when black tries to make the Petroff not look much like one early on, bad things happen. Rarely do I offer annotative posts, (if you can call this that) but I can't resist on this ...
   Jan-15-23 M Warmerdam vs J Pechac, 2023 (replies)
SteinitzLives: The 1800s just called. They want their game back. But seriously a game like this is comparitively rare these days at classical time controls, and must have been an ongoing adrenaline rush to watch live, not to mention to play!
   Jul-01-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
SteinitzLives: It isn't just that Nepo is winning, he is finishing all of his games in far fewer moves than anyone else by quite a bit. His longest game has been just 43 moves. He has to been getting much more rest than any of the other players due to finishing sooner and one would think ...
   Jan-07-22 A Kevitz vs G N Treysman, 1936 (replies)
SteinitzLives: I also think Kevitz may have been inspired by Treysman to play in the coffeehouse style that Treysman loved so much.
