   Sep-04-21 Fischer vs Gligoric, 1966
Capacorn: Just got through checking this game out in Soltis’s Bobby Fischer Rediscovered, then reading the comments. I echo the words of many: Hard to believe a player of Gligoric’s caliber would be so easily handled. Really the sort of game I’d expect to see in a blitz match between ...
   Sep-03-21 Pomar Salamanca vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
Capacorn: Truly this game deserves more attention. A very instructive and fun positional effort (generally), with various tactical fine points: connected passed pawns, exchange sacrifice, weak back rank, the power of the bishop pair, etc. Fischer sets up the connected passers as early as ...
   Aug-16-20 Capablanca vs R T Black, 1911
Capacorn: Just went over another game played between these two in 1916, covered in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” At one point, Capa had Q for R,B & P, with Black’s king relatively safe. After the latter’s 38th move, Kf8, Capa remarks, “Black here starts a very unfortunate ...
   Aug-15-20 Capablanca vs Ruiz / Molina, 1914
Capacorn: In “My Chess Career,” Capa says, after 39.Qxd6, “And black resigned after a few more moves.” He does this several times throughout the book, something I find slightly annoying. Obviously black is lost, but I would still like to know the complete game score. As far as I can ...
   Aug-15-20 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
Capacorn: Just got done going over this game in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” I’ve gained a new appreciation for his play. Yeah, everyone says he was a genius (and there’s no doubting all the experts), but you have to reach a certain level of proficiency to appreciate his ...
   Jan-28-18 Leinier Dominguez Perez (replies)
Capacorn: <BartPL: @Capacorn Dominguez was removed from FIDE chess rating because in over one year he didn't play any official game. His rating is frozen at 2739 ELO points.> Thanks, Bart. Makes perfect sense, now that you mention it. I was at a loss as to why he up and *poofed*. ...
   Dec-04-17 I Schneider vs Yudasin, 2001
Capacorn: Surprised there aren’t more comments. Really nice game, with some explosive tactics.
   May-27-17 Karpov vs Hort, 1980 (replies)
Capacorn: <keypusher> <Gypsy> I read somewhere once that retreating bishop moves are notoriously hard to spot. I have fallen prey to these oversights, and I've seen them happen to others, especially in blitz.
   Feb-24-17 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
Capacorn: <visayanbraindoctor> Nothing like pouring yourself a drink and going over some of these classics. I just reviewed this game with Chernev's book. Capablanca's vision was just ridiculous. You explained (very well, I might add) what I marveled at on at least two occasions. As ...
   Jan-29-17 Wesley So (replies)
Capacorn: Say hello to the next chess world champion, Wesley So.
