   Jun-26-17 I Bukavshin vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 41.Nf6+ seems to work. If ...Qxf6, then 42.exf6 leads to mate, and if ...Kf8 then 42.Rh8+ forces ...Bxh8 clearing the road for 43.Qg8#. The powerful White N is striking.
   Jun-25-17 Keres vs E Walther, 1964 (replies)
AlicesKnight: The opening sequence is not hard to find as there are few other productive options. The problems caused by the Black domination of the h7-b1 line are less easy to resolve and Keres works beautifully to handle them. <al-wazir> may also be right about Ne4.
   Jun-20-17 Timman vs J Smeets, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 43...Rxd2+; 44.Kxd2 b2 looks to force 45.Kc2, when ...Nb4+ wins the R. Black will then need to get the K over to help the N stop the white RP.
   Jun-19-17 A Lasker vs Ed. Lasker, 1909 (replies)
AlicesKnight: The 'Pianissimo' variation produces another example of it being mis-named.
   Jun-17-17 D Norwood vs S Marsh, 1992 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the main break-in (for once on a Saturday) with Qxc6+, Nxd4+, Rb1+ and Bb7+, and figured that there was a R-file mating-net there somewhere. Beautifully played by Norwood.
   Jun-16-17 Topalov vs Kasparov, 1994 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw 26.Nd4 - at this time of the morning! <bcokugras>; if....Bxd4, 27.Rfe7+ K moves; 28.Rb8# (the B has been decoyed from cover of b8).
   Jun-13-17 L Dominguez vs Yusupov, 2006 (replies)
AlicesKnight: The way in is blasted by 36.Qxg6+ - ....hxg6; 37.Rh8+ Kf7; 38.Ng5#. Let's see - they seem to agree.
   Jun-12-17 Prince Dadian vs Doubrava, 1896 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the lines shown by <zb2cr> above; declining the bishop is best, but leaves Black wonky.
   Jun-06-17 Areshchenko vs A Rustemov, 2014 (replies)
AlicesKnight: White has enough Rs on the e-file to check, causing either deflection of Black's d-R from its protection of the Q, or the Black K to go to g7 allowing the Nf5 fork of K and Q.
   Jun-05-17 R Hess vs E Sevillano, 2006 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 35... Qg2+ seems to do; 36.Bxg2 R8xg2# finis.
