My favorite player is Reshevsky, based on his books and style of play (I'm similar, but 700 ELO weaker!).

   Nov-02-15 Fine vs E Gonzalez Rojo, 1935
jackpawn: Fine's 12. Nxb5 is a nice tactical shot out of the blue. Took me a few seconds to realize the point.
   Feb-03-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
jackpawn: Carlsen is beginning to remind me of Capa. Just as with Capa I will often see Carlsen's moves almost immediately, but then I reject them. It's almost annoying!
   Dec-18-13 Alekhine vs Supico, 1941 (replies)
jackpawn: Truthfully I'm fairly sure I would have found it. The difference between Alekhine and me (aside from him being a genius and me being a relative fish!)is I wouldn't had had the starting position to begin with.

jackpawn: Wish more of his Owens games would appear here. As I recall his games were very interesting.
   Jun-17-13 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
jackpawn: I have a question about Capa. From 1931 to 1934 he played no chess, apparently discouraged about not getting a return match against Alekhine. But what was he doing? I realize he had a position within the Cuban government, but by all accounts it was a very undemanding position. So ...
   May-24-13 O Salmensuu vs T Hillarp Persson, 2000
jackpawn: Cute ending.
   May-23-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
jackpawn: People used to say the same thing about Fischer's opponents - that somehow they played weaker against him. My opinion is that they simply can't stand the pressure of playing move after move against super sharp play, knowing that the slightest error will probably be fatal. It has to

jackpawn: He played some big names, but not successfully . . .
   Mar-26-13 Petrosian vs Petrovsky, 1946 (replies)
jackpawn: I just love some of Petrosian's games. Often I see lines he plays, but I reject them too soon. Guess that's why he was a world champion and I'm a borderline expert.

jackpawn: I'm really sorry hear that. May he rest in peace.
