   Jan-20-19 J L Watson vs B Bok, 2015
AlicesKnight: Possibly - given the vain efforts to use the White KR - "A lame entry, my dear Watson....". Compare the White QR in Saemisch vs Alekhine, 1943 - also a dead end.
   Jan-20-19 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found my comment from its October publication further back. A Sunday puzzle?
   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it. Extraordinary that there is no escape route once Black takes the R.
   Jan-08-19 K Mekhitarian vs W Arencibia, 2005 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found 17.Bb6 - deflecting the Q or winning at least a piece.
   Jan-01-19 O Dolgova vs R Aloma Vidal, 2012 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Black, a P up, wins another by ....Ne3; 33.fxe3 Qxe3+ regaining the piece (d3). Not a summary execution but enough to be sure with positional advantage too; the b2 pawn looks out to dry.
   Dec-30-18 T Gelashvili vs T Khmiadashvili, 2001 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the first three White moves (mainly because, on CG, it is worth looking for a sacrifice; OTB I doubt I would) but was not sure how convincingly I could follow up. 37.Rg3+ is an extraordinary concept to clear the square and allow the Q to attack.
   Dec-28-18 M Mihaljcisin vs Benko, 1970 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found the key first three moves; it seems ....Qc6 is no help after 31.Qxg7+ Ke8; 32.Nf6+ winning the Q, so Benko plays a help-mate.
   Dec-28-18 Yifan Hou vs Karpov, 2018 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I like the calm way Hou deals with the Q-side. The Black Rs look good on the c-file but 26.Nc5 splits them, and after the exchanges on a4 she doesn't grab the P but instead forces off the Qs - the weak Ps are not going anywhere and the R on the 7th dominates the board.
   Dec-26-18 Mohamed Ali Dima vs M R Venkatesh, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 19th-century-style nightmare- the spirit of Chessmas past returns to haunt us.
   Dec-26-18 V Plotkin vs V Drkulec, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: What about 24.Nf5+ - if ...Kg7 then Ng5+ wins the Q or mates, so ... gxf5, but 25.Qxf4+ and rapid success again for White. Let's see - yes!
