   Aug-09-17 Yu Yangyi vs Wang Yue, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: A well-co-ordinated attack, with the distant sacrifice at move 27 allowing the White N to enter with effect; the follow-up gifts on 37 and 40 top off the game. Black helped by clearing the f- and g-files for the Rs.

AlicesKnight: 24.Ne8+ forces ...Bxc6, on which 25.Nd6 brings a pretty version of the 2Ns mate with Black self-blocked and an elegant picture of cavalry to the fore.
 
   Aug-07-17 Acs vs A Khruschiov, 1997 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 40.Rc8+ forces ....Qxc8 whereupon 41.Ne7+ wins the Q, and the Black d-pawn is one file too close to the K to help.
 
   Aug-05-17 Movsesian vs V Babula, 1996 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: I saw that Bxg7 was key before Black could block with ...e5, but thought Black might try for ...f5 and ...Ne6 after 15.Qh6 - but now I don't think it helps much.
 
   Aug-02-17 G Gaygusuzoglu vs R Hardarson, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Saw the 25...Rxd4 exchange sacrifice and line. Black must just ensure against any K-side looseness after the a1 capture.
 
   Jul-19-17 A Gavrilov vs B Grachev, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: I found the game continuation ....Nd2 and the drive of the K into the mating-net after a short time. <Jimfromprovidence> shows ...Ne1+ is less sound.
 
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Don't see a mate in prospect, so 13.Qxd7+ Kxd7; 14.O-O-O+ wins the Black R. Let's see; - others agree.
 
   Jul-17-17 B Savchenko vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Nice - all those pieces vying for the action across the centre and no pesky pawns in the way .....
 
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 40.... R8g3. If the P captures g3, Nxg3 is mate. If not, ....Rxh3 is mate. When he was good, Efim was very good.
 
   Jul-14-17 K Spraggett vs P Llaneza-Vega, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: <LucB: This sort reminds me of what could have happened to Pachman (Petrosian vs Pachman, 1961) or Myagmarsuren (Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967)> - very nice; we could go on, I'm sure, but also Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 - another King sucked into a trap with Q sacrifice....
