Nifty combinations
Compiled by YouRang
--*--

When I see a combination that is impressive, beautiful, and understandable -- and I like it, I may add it to this collection.

Mating combo begins: 25...Rd1+! (more interesting if 27. Kg3)
S N Ahmed vs Z Rahman, 2006 
(B46) Sicilian, Taimanov Variation, 26 moves, 0-1

24. Bxb6! leads to ending where black is curiously helpless
Emms vs V Tukmakov, 1996 
(B22) Sicilian, Alapin, 27 moves, 1-0

Nakamura's 21...Qxf2!! earns stunning win
Krasenkow vs Nakamura, 2007 
(A14) English, 28 moves, 0-1

Great mating sequence at end (duh) of this game...
J E Slade vs NN, 1960 
(B58) Sicilian, 22 moves, 1-0

Amazing win by black, esp w/ 35...Rxf3!!
Gunsberg vs Chigorin, 1890 
(C77) Ruy Lopez, 42 moves, 0-1

The q-sac mating combo starting move 32 is glorious
C Lutz vs Ftacnik, 2001 
(B90) Sicilian, Najdorf, 35 moves, 1-0

Portisch drops the curtain with the stunning move, 20...Rd1+
Suba vs Portisch, 1984 
(A33) English, Symmetrical, 20 moves, 0-1

25.Rd6!! rook sac decoy to pin the defending knight
A I Bykhovsky vs D Oltean, 1990 
(D45) Queen's Gambit Declined Semi-Slav, 28 moves, 1-0

23.Nh6+!, later threatening Rg6+! or Rf8++! is brilliant
Stein vs Vladimir Lepeshkin, 1965 
(A29) English, Four Knights, Kingside Fianchetto, 27 moves, 1-0

Being able to find 20...Qg3 is a fantasy of mine
C F Schultz vs Carls, 1900 
(C45) Scotch Game, 28 moves, 0-1

37.Qc7+! forces king into rook fork a ways downstream
I A Nataf vs Wang Yue, 2004 
(B33) Sicilian, 41 moves, 1-0

Gotta love 43.Rd5! double deflection/interference move
E Eliskases vs F Hoelzl, 1929 
(D32) Queen's Gambit Declined, Tarrasch, 43 moves, 1-0
