   Mar-04-15 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1977 (replies)
crchandler: In the original notes to the game in CL&R, I recall that Keene labelled 27. ... Ne7 a mistake. He advocated 27. ... Nh6, threatening to entomb the white rook on g5 and possibly exchanging off the powerful bishop on f2.
   Nov-11-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
crchandler: patfoley: Are you the Pat Foley of Athens, Georgia?
   Apr-25-14 Karpov vs Beliavsky, 1994 (replies)
crchandler: I find it hard to believe that he had prepared 14.h4 in 1974 hoping to use it against Korchnoi. For one thing, he opened with 1.e4 in all but one of his games with white in 1974. The other was a 1.Nf3 game. And too, he had no way of knowing Korchnoi would use the 6. ... dxc4 ...
   Apr-02-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
crchandler: "RookFile: 17. Bxe4 is an absolutely shocking move for Bobby Fischer to play... more typical of Korchnoi. The old Fischer would never have played this, I believe.." Actually, this game follows game 19 of the Korchnoi-Karpov WCC match 1978, where Korchnoi, playing white, at one ...
   Mar-27-14 Mamedyarov vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
crchandler: Black would have loved for white to grab the Exchange with 28. Bxf8. If white's dark square bishop is eliminated black is out of any danger and looks to stand better, with no kingside dark-square weaknesses to worry about and the a- and c-pawns potentially strong.
   Mar-27-14 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2014 (replies)
crchandler: And what crime have they committed, exactly, Robyn Hode, the "crime" of not entertaining you? They have practical matters to consider as well as playing good chess.
   Mar-05-14 O H Castro Rojas vs Petrosian, 1976 (replies)
crchandler: The story of the $100 from Korchnoi has credibility. It's well established that he later made the same gesture to anyone who beat Karpov.
   Nov-08-13 Bisguier vs G F Kane, 1973
crchandler: No defense because the black queen is cut off from the queenside. 21. Qel deserves a "!". 21. ... b6 is met by 22. Qb4 and the black king is dead. The push b3 will kick the knight away, the bishop goes to e5 and the queen will find a way in with the rook a constant threat on the ...
   Oct-01-13 Petrosian vs H Ree, 1971 (replies)
crchandler: I sometimes ponder whether LifeMaster AJ's narcissism is natural or the product of intense effort.
   Sep-20-13 Spassky vs Botvinnik, 1970 (replies)
crchandler: What about pressure on the b-file? 17. ... Nxc5 18. dxc5 Nf6 19. Rb4! Rb8 20. g4! with coming Rab1 next. Black seems to be in serious trouble. White's king can control enough squares on the d-file to keep Black from getting serious counterplay there and if Black's king tries to ...
