   May-27-23 Anand vs Robatsch, 1992 (replies)
steinitzfan: Once again I can't do much but explore lines with the engine and admire the play. I guessed the first two moves but I'm frankly surprised that Black couldn't regroup and refute the sacrifice. Black seems to have some time on his hands but all the different tries to connect up ...
   May-22-23 F Duz-Khotimirsky vs NN, 1910 (replies)
steinitzfan: What a fore-Boden position for Black.
   Apr-29-23 Colle vs Roethemeyer, 1922 (replies)
steinitzfan: And if Black moves 17...Kh6 White moves 18Nf7#. That reminds me of an old joke about an Alekhine game. It's a good thing that Black is in checkmate because otherwise he would lose his queen.
   Apr-24-23 S Duron Godoy vs V Garcia Castro, 2004 (replies)
steinitzfan: This puzzle is easy if you know Philidor's Legacy. But I've seen a couple of fairly smart people work Philidor's Legacy and it was a bit of a chore for both of them. For both the pattern involved: (1) Chasing the king around a bit and getting nowhere. (2) Noticing that if they ...
   Apr-23-23 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
steinitzfan: I remember a ways back (before Fischer was champion and when computers played like high school kids) reading an analysis of this game where the author claimed that 18Be3 was superior to the text 18Bd6. He appears to have been correct but it's an engine-quality move before there ...
   Apr-20-23 Smyslov vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
steinitzfan: Amazing. I've always loved this game. According to the engine White doesn't have a bad game until 26 Rc1. I guess this is something it takes an engine to see. Is the evaluation correct?
   Feb-25-23 A Ardeleanu vs D Bondoc, 1994 (replies)
steinitzfan: I was able to see that taking the knight after Ng6 would lose for Black. But as far as proceeding against Ke8 or Kg8, that's too much for me.
   Feb-13-23 A Hoffman vs D Pereyra Arcija, 1995 (replies)
steinitzfan: I like the simplification. When I'm a couple of pawns up, generally I'll get as many pieces off the board as possible. The one-minute analysis from the provided engine shows no preference for the simplification. My guess is that engines just don't fear making blunders.
   Feb-02-23 E M Jackson vs Flohr, 1929 (replies)
steinitzfan: Very deep. There's a lot going on in those few moves. Wish't I could play like that.
   Jan-31-23 Staunton - Morphy Match (1858) (replies)
steinitzfan: So how long until computers give us a set of virtual games that these players could have plausibly played at this time of their lives? Along with similar non-matches? Or am I the only person who would find such a thing interesting?
