Capablanca is the greatest of all time: no discussion. :P

   Jun-02-21 N Khoudgarian vs D Abarca, 2012
 
asiduodiego: 19 Qh5??. A bad blunder, and a good lesson: sometimes you need to pick up your chips and just retire. 19 Qe2 is safe. Of course, black is going to finally capture in b2, but after Qf3, the queen is again in a good position to perhaps jump in the attack later on. A good game by ...
 
   Jun-02-21 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: <RookFile> One thing about Fischer we all know is that he was very stingy in his conditions for matches, but also, that when he REALLY wanted to play, he yielded in his requirements, as he did many times in the 60s. I don't know what he was actually thinking at the time ...
 
   Jun-02-21 Staunton - Morphy Match (1858) (replies)
 
asiduodiego: <MissScarlett> It seems that you know the names of those "fallacies", but you don't understand the meaning of them. "Special pleading". The fallacy of requiring an exception when there is NO reason provided. In my argument I provided a reason on why cases such as the "1975
 
   Jun-02-21 Smagin vs N Vlassov, 1995 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: Nice tactic. As usual, the key in the mate sequence is the speed at which black's pieces can jump into action. Also, never forget the "secret" pin of the f pawn when the king is castled kingside.
 
   May-28-21 A Meek vs Morphy, 1855
 
asiduodiego: As many have commented, the key defensive manouver for white would have been after: 15 ... Rxe4+?! 16 Be3!. Suddenly, black's counterattack is stopped in its tracks. Qe7 is basically forced, and then white castles to safety (and with check) regaining momentum. It is a rather ...
 
   May-07-21 Lutikov vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: A good example of a one-two punch. First I tried something on the Queenside, but it all lead to trades which improved Black's position. The key in the position is that almost all of Black's pieces are on the Queenside and the king is uncastled. That situation screams for a ...
 
   May-06-21 E Danieli vs A Colovic, 1999 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: The key in the position is black's weaknesses in the light squares. The first thought I had was: "I want to remove the Queen from the 5th rank". It seemed impossible at first, so I tried to think if wrecking the pawn structure with 25 Bxf6 lead to something, but it didn't. Then ...
 
   Apr-26-21 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
 
asiduodiego: Congratulations to Ian. A well deserved victory in this tournament. It will be an interesting WC this year indeed.
 
   Dec-07-20 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: <Petrosianic><Somebody, Bronstein, I think, said that if Petrosian sacrifices a piece, then resign. But if Tal sacrifices one, take it, because he might sacrifice another, and then who knows?> That quote has always eluded me, although I'm also sure that I've heard it
 
   Dec-07-20 Capablanca vs L Requena, 1916 (replies)
 
asiduodiego: A very nice game. A good lesson: if you want to have a really nice trade-fest, make sure your rooks are active at the end of it.
