   Feb-21-18 R Costigan vs L Day, 1987 (replies)
 
ASchultz: I kept trying to make mate work with Qe6+ Kd8 Qb6+ Ke8 (Kc8 Qb8) Qb8+ Rd8 Qb5+ Rd7 but I only saw perpetual. Then I saw the bishop discovery.
 
   Feb-07-18 K Grigorian vs Dzindzichashvili, 1969 (replies)
 
ASchultz: I went with Ba6 even though Qxb7 staves off the ...b4 mate forcing the bishop off the diagonal. I figured the central pawn roller and 2B's were too powerful, and Fritz backs me up. While White can probably play b4 to stop mate, there's still the matter of the active knight. I ...
 
   Jan-25-18 Wei Yi vs Yu Yangyi, 2017 (replies)
 
ASchultz: Black's resistance is impressive to me, though not as impressive as White's attack! I learned a lot just seeing why the piece shuffling wasn't just piece shuffling, and how White broke the fortress down.
 
   Dec-12-17 L Dubeck vs R Weinstein, 1958 (replies)
 
ASchultz: So interesting to see the scratchwork before the final accepted GotD name. I love it when a pun comes together!
 
   Jul-23-17 J F Villarreal Felix vs N Ristic, 1975 (replies)
 
ASchultz: There's Jerome K. Jerome, too. Unlike Ford Madox Ford, this was not a pen name! Far less whimsically, there's Sirhan Sirhan.
 
   May-08-17 M Jadoul vs G Plomp, 2003 (replies)
 
ASchultz: <Phony Benoni> terrible, just terrible. But the pawn on g6 is such a plomp target... Also his player page has a pun in the comments you don't want to miss. Or you really do. I won't judge either way.
 
   Mar-22-17 R Polaczek vs A Antoniou, 2007 (replies)
 
ASchultz: I spent a bit of time trying to make Qg6 work until I realized 1) Black could just sac the rook for the pawn in the worst case 2) said rook was wobbly. If only I could deflect the queen! 3) if the Nc3 could get into the game, it's be over. But Ne4 didn't quite work...
 
   Mar-02-17 Caruana vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
 
ASchultz: This is an interesting game to me as I always had trouble getting play in the French Exchange. I realize it's a Petrov but the pawns becoe similar after d2-c3-d4, so it's instructive to see how Caruana uses his space advantage and good bishop and creates a few holes, then--bam!
 
   Mar-01-17 Alexey Korotylev
 
ASchultz: He's the player of the day, and he's also on the wrong end of the Puzzle of the Day. But I better not talk too much smack about someone who could beat me easily for sure.
 
   Feb-19-17 R Tischbierek vs E Postny, 2007
 
ASchultz: Interesting that Rxd7 or cxd7 works--so yes, this is a bit on the easy side, but in terms of calculation possibilities, it's neat to see if both captures on d7 work, and how. <Al Wazir> 36 ...Bc4 in the game had me worried too but Na7 should demoralize Black quickly. The B ...
