   Aug-02-21 Karpov vs Sosonko, 1977
RookFile: Computer says black should go 10....a6 and follow up with ...b5. Probably the last thing that would occur to a Dragon player.
   Aug-02-21 Keene vs Gligoric, 1977
RookFile: 13. Nb5 leads to a slight advantage for white.
   Aug-02-21 Fischer vs S Brandwein, 1964
RookFile: Computer says 30. Re8+ leads to a win.
   Aug-01-21 Keene vs Miles, 1976
RookFile: It's black's turn to move. What do you play? [DIAGRAM] The Nimzovich student, having carefully read My System, plays ....Nb4 here. Meanwhile, a beginner, fresh from reading his first Fred Reinfeld book, plays ...Bd7 and emphasizes development. Guess which move is better? Why, ...
   Jul-31-21 Tal vs Kasparov, 1979
RookFile: 15...Bd8 is a neat defensive idea that protects the queen and threatens to take on d4.
   Jul-31-21 Portisch vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
RookFile: <kereru: The people who told you two rooks are slightly better than a queen? They were wrong. > Listening to Carlsen, I think that's one of his secrets. He says there are no absolutes, you have to evaluate each positon on a case by case basis. This game is a good one to show ...
   Jul-30-21 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
RookFile: It's been a while since I've seen this game. I gave this to myself as a problem and came up with 81....Nd3. The goal is to plant the knight on f4. Once you get the knight to f4 it's amazing how easy it is to hold this. For example, 81.....Nd3 82. h4 Nf4 83. Kg5 and you totally ...
   Jul-28-21 Max Euwe
RookFile: Euwe lost matches to Alekhine, Capablanca, Bogo (twice), and drew a match with Flohr. Then he played Alekhine for the championship and won. You have to hand it to Euwe, the man was persistent and never afraid to play anybody.
   Jul-28-21 Garry Kasparov (replies)
RookFile: Rocky Marciano was smart. The guy went 49-0 in boxing, retired, and stayed retired. A great fighter, maybe not the greatest, but perhaps the smartest.
   Jul-27-21 Soltis vs Lombardy, 1987
RookFile: Soltis has such an open, freewheeling style. His games are a joy to play through.
