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.

   Apr-12-21 C H Alexander vs Reshevsky, 1936
maxi: Peculiar Alexander did not go for the rather obvious exchange sac 22.Rxc7 with a clear advantage.
   Apr-03-21 Fine vs Botvinnik, 1938 (replies)
maxi: Going over the thread of this game makes me realize how informative and entertaining ChessGames can be. Most contributions add so much to the game score that I am really glad I have access to this page.
   Mar-29-21 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924 (replies)
maxi: <Caleb554> Funny!
   Mar-29-21 Tartakower vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
maxi: Dear <AgentRgent>, your sarcasm has a problem. Capablanca was the winner of this Tournament (along with Botvinnik), one of the strongest tournaments of all time. It included 5 world champs. His results were 7+ 1- 6=. Botvinnik's were 6+ 0- 8= If that is not fighting spirit then I
   Mar-27-21 Capablanca vs H E Chambers, 1912 (replies)
maxi: You are doing the same thing as Capa, having no respect. Assuming the other person is stupid or something like that. Have you even seen the game <MissScarlett>? Some of my favorite Capablanca games are King's Gambits. Beautifully played games. This game is different. Take ...
   Mar-25-21 N Whitaker vs Capablanca, 1913
maxi: This game gives me a headache. The move 6...c5 seems justified, but not the ones Capa played afterwards. White's counterattack should give him the initiative for a long time.
   Mar-22-21 Capablanca vs G Oskam, 1911
maxi: A few moves later Gerard played 53... Nh7+, a very weak move.
   Mar-03-21 M Smith vs Capablanca, 1911
maxi: The analysis of the final position by Stockfish is logical and basically forced. It would have been interesting if they had played on just two moves more, to see if Capa felled for the trap 26.Bf1 Qb1 27.Qe2 Bd3? 28.Rd2! and it is Black who loses!
   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 ...
