I dropped my old Bio. With the years I have become unattached to chess. I still enjoy it but I don't love it anymore.

   Nov-05-19 Capablanca vs Flohr, 1936
maxi: Capa says White came out better from the opening, but that 17.Qg4 just didn't cut it. Correct was, he says, 17.Bc1 h6 18.Ne5, "with a very strong attack".
   Nov-03-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
maxi: < SChesshevsky: After 24. h4 the cg computer shows 24...Qf7 +.44, 24...Qg6 +.50 and 24...Nb4 +.56 as seemingly the best choices for black. But after the actual move 24...Ng5 it shows continuing variations with evals of -.11, -.27 and -.50. That seems a pretty big miss. Are there any
   Oct-27-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
maxi: But A0 does retreat the piece.
   Jan-09-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
maxi: 33.Qf4+ is chess at its best.
   Dec-14-18 Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1929
maxi: It seems to me you are right, <keypusher>. Capa probably preferred the straight-forward positional squeeze.
   Dec-14-18 Capablanca vs J W Young, 1922
maxi: 29...Bd2 does not blunder the bishop because of 30.RxB Rc1+. And the final position is actually a cute mate after 31.RxB+ gxR 32.Qf7#.
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
maxi: Yawn...
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
maxi: Black has a much better pawn structure and lines for his pieces. In this kind of position it is unlikely Carlsen could blunder badly. On the other hand a couple of more or less weak moves by Caruana and it is all over. Very disappointing.
   Nov-24-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
maxi: If the classical chess part of the match ends even, the situation would be the same as in the match against Karjakin. Not very impressive at all.
   Nov-19-18 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
maxi: Ha! Capa and Alekhine both were Scorpios. No wonder they had a had time getting along.
