   Nov-23-21 Lutikov vs Velimirovic, 1966
 
SteinitzLives: This game was voted the 8th best game of the year by Informant in 1966. Both of Velimirovic's stylistically uncharacteristic retreats to the eighth rank in the opening are a curiosity to me. Well, the Spielmann Indian never has really caught on any way. The Nxf7 sac for white ...
 
   Sep-08-21 Tal vs NN, 1973 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: So, who had more fun, Tal winning a little miniature, or NN being able to say he played against him?
 
   Sep-08-21 Tal vs Kavalek, 1979
 
SteinitzLives: How amusing that black's doubled Q+R on the a file add up to nothing. Kavalek was such a good player in the 1970's but Tal was such a great player in the 50's, 60's and 70's!
 
   Sep-08-21 Leo Tolstoy (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: What a blessing that Tolstoy loved both chess and writing.

SteinitzLives: Pro chess players (assuming they are active thru middle age), surely die younger on average than those of us who are life-long active amateurs. So, loving chess despite comparatively sucking at it, helps one live longer. Who knew there was such a strong upside! Oh yeah, ...
 
   Jul-18-21 Jeffery Xiong (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Just watched Jeff in the World Cup play a clearly lost Q&P endgame against Nils Grandelius. He played w/ just K&Q against his opponent`s K+Q + connected g & h pawns for 60 moves! I was so impressed by his refusal to resign! The sky is the limit for Jeff. Sosonko once wrote ...

SteinitzLives: <Whitehat> Take a look at this one: Petrosian vs Dzaparidze, 1945 Petrosian plays the Kings Gambit.
 
   May-25-21 William Hook
 
SteinitzLives: My dad took me to the Flea House in the mid-1970's (I believe it's official name was The Chess & Checker Club of NY, if I am not mistaken), and just before we went in, my dad said: Son, if we are ever going to get mugged in New York, it will be here! Well, we didn't, but their
 
   Apr-09-21 Boris Privman
 
SteinitzLives: Boris was an incredibly active player, not just in NJ & NY, but traveling between NY and DC to play frequently. He was one of the three Boris's who often finished near the top at local DC area tourneys in the 1980's (the others were Zisman and Reichstein). I think the three ...

SteinitzLives: A friend just showed me that chess.com may have had the first story on this before NIC did, not sure.
