   Dec-11-19 Rainn Wilson
SteinitzLives: Well, say this for Rainn, at least he lasted longer than Bill Gates did.
   Dec-11-19 Carlsen vs Rainn Wilson, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Well, for a chess player Wilson is a pretty good actor. Wouldn't he in full Dwight-Schrute-mode have pulled a beet from his mustard shirt and struck a blow against the World Champ? Or at least have Mose tie Carlsen's shoelaces together while hiding under the table? Maybe ...
   Dec-04-19 Tal vs Korchnoi, 1968 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Head to head in chess? Or who was more fun to be around?
   Aug-26-19 Pal Benko (replies)
SteinitzLives: I could rarely ever solve any of his endgame compositions. In that, he was a true artist. Pal was much more than a survivor from the political, oppressive and vile brutalities suffered in his youth and early adulthood. Pal Benko showed he could thrive with class and truly live

   May-18-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
SteinitzLives: What's with all the 1st round wuss short opening draws, especially with the English? Fortune favors the bold. Maybe since it will be a long tough tourney, players are conserving strength. Screw the spectators I guess, the players are in for the long haul. Oh well, as long as ...

SteinitzLives: One can't but wonder who the author is, and when the IPO will be forthcoming.

SteinitzLives: Some of Anna's latest vlogging work on youtube link below, with a shout out to Carlsberg Beer for sponsoring the Copenhagen Chess Slam: Keep promoting the fun side of chess Anna!
   Sep-02-18 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
SteinitzLives: Naka's love of Red Bull as both a product to use, and an endorsement to self enrich, is understandable. However all the Red Bull drinking in the world will not sustain him in long chess games as he ages, compared to a decent and rigorous physical regimen which will give ...
