May-14-14  offramp: There are some pictures from various Linareseses at chessbase, http://en.chessbase.com/post/linare... It is interesting to see the orientation of different players' knights. Most seem to face forward. Some both face left, oddly.

My knights both look towards the king.

May-19-14  Mr 1100: Wow... nice link there... those photographs - looking back into the '90's...

LOL at the photos of a long-haired Kramnik!!!!
