Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-14  RookFile: What Reshevsky did was solid enough, and got him a half point. But, for a man who wanted to be champ, I think 1....c5 would have been a better choice.
Jun-23-14  ughaibu: Hasn't the majority of world champions played 1...e5 more than 1...c5?
Jun-24-14  ughaibu: Okay kids, the results are in. In world championship matches, the champion answered 1.e4 with 1...e5 seventy one times, with 1...c5 forty times. The challenger when unsuccessful answer with 1...e5 ninety seven times and with 1...c5 fifteen times. But the challenger, when successful, answered with 1...e5 seventeen times and with 1...c5 sixteen times. So RookFile's intuition scores a hit.

At first glance it appears that the champion played 1.e4 more than the challenger did, but as several events had more than one challenger and no champion, that's probably not the case.

The first sicilian in a world championship? Schlechter vs Lasker, 1910

Jun-24-14  RookFile: Reshevsky would probably argue that a fairly easy draw with black in a long tournament means that he has more strength to go 1-0 with white in the next round.
Jun-24-14  offramp: I recall that there were no Sicilians (proper open ones) in the 1978 and 1981 World Championship matches.

Only one has been played in the current Brazil World Cup: Antonio DiNatale.
