   Jan-25-23 Carlsen vs Rapport, 2023
SteinitzLives: As someone who winds up on both sides of the Petroff (yet I still love chess ;-), I know that when black tries to make the Petroff not look much like one early on, bad things happen. Rarely do I offer annotative posts, (if you can call this that) but I can't resist on this ...
   Jan-15-23 M Warmerdam vs J Pechac, 2023 (replies)
SteinitzLives: The 1800s just called. They want their game back. But seriously a game like this is comparitively rare these days at classical time controls, and must have been an ongoing adrenaline rush to watch live, not to mention to play!
   Oct-09-22 Hans Niemann (replies)
SteinitzLives: I agree that the verbal bullying has increased. I wonder if those who do so believe it is justified due to those others who find it humorous. All bullies are at heart cowards, physical or otherwise. Entities can bully more effectively from the shadows, differently from most ...
   Sep-28-22 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
SteinitzLives: I would think that now lawyers would be lining up to represent Hans in a defamation suit against Magnus.
   Jul-01-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
SteinitzLives: It isn't just that Nepo is winning, he is finishing all of his games in far fewer moves than anyone else by quite a bit. His longest game has been just 43 moves. He has to been getting much more rest than any of the other players due to finishing sooner and one would think ...
   Jan-07-22 A Kevitz vs G N Treysman, 1936 (replies)
SteinitzLives: I also think Kevitz may have been inspired by Treysman to play in the coffeehouse style that Treysman loved so much.
   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.
