   Apr-01-10 Smyslov vs Sliwa, 1956 (replies)
xrt999: Geller was +11 -8 =37 against Smyslov
   Mar-30-10 S Kotlerman vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
xrt999: after 20...Nf4, white starts to fall apart; he cant castle. From a purely psychological perspective, this is always unfomfortable. Dealing with the night indirectly doesnt work and white's kingside quickly crumbles; two moves which I am looking at in more detail are the more direct ...
   Mar-29-10 Short vs Geller, 1982
xrt999: Short would have been 17 or 18 and Geller about 57. An interesting matchup of these 2 titans of chess.
   Mar-27-10 I Chikovani vs Geller, 1968 (replies)
xrt999: In 1968, Geller was certainly one of the best in the world. He played 82 games, losing only 5. This win is nothing special. He basically bulldozes over his opponent in the opening, simply outcalculating his oponent to win a pawn.
   Mar-22-10 Alapin vs Alekhine, 1914 (replies)
xrt999: <dzechiel I'm guessing in the actual game that Alapin resigned immediately, but those were different times when is was considered gentlemanly to allow your opponent to effect checkmate.> I think that by this time, there was already a strong meme taking hold in chess culture ...
   Feb-12-10 Shirov vs Dominguez Perez, 2010 (replies)
xrt999: <But it's clear that we can no longer judge what's really happening without a computer, if we want to be objective.> If you break this sentence down what I think you get is : If we want to be objective and judge what is really happening, we need a computer. The occasional ...
   Jan-07-10 Fischer vs Geller, 1967 (replies)
xrt999: < AnalyzeThis: 1967 is in the past. Entries on this page are in the present time.> Thank you for clarifying this for me.
   Dec-04-09 Furman vs Keres, 1948 (replies)
xrt999: It says SA Furman was Karpov's trainer according to his bio on CG. Interesting. Didnt know that.
   Nov-25-09 W Fried vs Schlechter, 1897 (replies)
xrt999: < zb2cr: Found this one easily. I have nothing to add to the comments by <zooter>, <dzechiel>, <Fomula7>, <SamAtoms1980>, <WhenHarryMetSally>, <agb2002>, and <TheaN>.> I also have nothing to add, with the exception that I have nothing ...
   Nov-16-09 Fischer vs Mecking, 1970 (replies)
xrt999: this game illustrates a pretty cool mathematical fundamental of chess: when ahead material trade down. Mathematically, having 6 pawns to your opponents 5 is a one pawn advantage, as is 5 to 4, 4 to 3, 3 to 2, etc. Your percent material advantage, though, increases as you trade down. ...
