   Nov-13-18 K O'Brien vs D Salter, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 20.... Qxh2+ forces 21.Kxh2, when ...Nxg3+ mates in 1-2 moves. White was evidently oblivious playing the 20th move, as I might have been....
   Nov-12-18 M de Jong vs V Akotchik, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found the gameline quickly, but I think Qxg6+ and also dxe5 win; ....Qb7+ chasing the white R fails because of the e6 - e7 advance or possible mate on f7. Black was lost some time ago.
   Nov-06-18 M Bezold vs D J Ledger, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it fairly quickly. Where else could Black go by this time? 37...Qb3; 38.Rb8 Ra8 - but if white simply exchanges down when possible the extra Ps will tell.
   Oct-29-18 Tartakower vs C H Alexander, 1936 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I'm slightly puzzled by White's 54th (Bd2). If he had played 54.Bd7 followed by 55.c6 Black looks helpless. He must sacrifice something to get out of the trap, but then White's Q-side wins. I assume the score - 54.Bd2 - is correct.....
   Oct-29-18 Pier Paolo Pedrini vs D J Ledger, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 29.... Qxf3+ seems to do - the White Q is overloaded with the R and the pin after 30.Qxf3 allows ...Rxe2+, while moving the K lets the R go as well. One of those moves which look impossible - but is.....
   Oct-17-18 V Kulakov vs D Ludwig, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it ....
   Oct-15-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 23.Bxa7+ wins the Q for 2 minor pieces (after.... Kxg7, 24.Nxf5+) and then White must mobilise the heavy brigade to finish the job.
   Oct-14-18 Fischer vs Greenblatt, 1977 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <MissScarlett, Keypusher et al> I still have my Chess Challenger, in working order. From those distant days.... I regard it with some affection. It was handy when multi-tasking on some long, complicated and uninteresting work-at-home stuff - to glance at the CC for a few ...
   Oct-13-18 Winants vs Carlsen, 2003 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Qxc4 seems simple enough, but then there is no forced line, though Black is partially paralysed and the K wide open. (Later) Agree with <patzer2> and others; one move too late.
   Oct-11-18 G Horvath vs Plachetka, 1994 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found most of the gameline and also hit the problem of 34.Kg1 identified above. Deceptive.
