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.

   May-13-20 Barsov vs P H Nielsen, 2002 (replies)
maxi: <AylerKupp>, no, no. It so happens I am a firm follower of the K. von Bardeleben endgame technique. What you are suggesting goes against our chessic beliefs.
   May-09-20 Lasker vs Schlechter, 1910
maxi: Capablanca comments <Black could also play 22...Rxb5 23.Bxf8 Bxf8 24.Bxb5 Bxb5, and White would now have two exchanges for a piece. Too bad Schlechter did not play this way. It would have been a great ending to play.> An engine gives no advantage to either side in Capa's ...
   May-01-20 V Galuscak vs O Gritsak, 2010
maxi: White had been playing surprisingly weakly before his minor oversight.
   May-01-20 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
maxi: Yes, <Johnatan Sarfati>, actually I was aware of that. I was checking dates and realized Capa and Alekhine were both Scorpios and decided it was time for a silly comment, Scorpios being famously bad-tempered. Alekhine was reluctant to give Capa a shot to the Wch because he knew ...
   Apr-23-20 A Ebralidze vs Ragozin, 1937
maxi: It is most remarkable that Archil saw the double attack with the Bishop when it was not there, 41...Bd6, and did not see it when it was, 45...Be5.
   Apr-16-20 Alekhine vs Echiquier Notre-Dame, 1925 (replies)
maxi: Hey, I had a good laugh with this pun!
   Apr-14-20 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018
maxi: <Carrots and Pizza> It's fascinating how SF builds the Pawn chain on dark squares after 14...g6
   Apr-10-20 Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 (replies)
maxi: What confuses me is, was it Curt or not to walk out?
   Mar-24-20 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018
maxi: A0 did a clean positional job on SF.
   Mar-14-20 Capablanca vs I Friedmann, 1933
maxi: <ToTheDeath> Yes. Thank you.
