   Aug-21-17 E Korchmar vs A Poliak, 1931 (replies)
Delboy: As much as this game has several attractive sacrificial combinations, these are not exceptionally deep. So I am somewhat hesitant in accepting that this is THE "Immortal" game of a nation with as strong a chess playing tradition as the Ukraine
   Aug-13-17 A Druckenthaner vs S Kindermann, 2002
Delboy: 22. Rf2 Ne3 and white loses a piece, e.g. 23. Qh3 Bf5 or 23. d5 Qxd5 24. Nxc7 Qd1. Earlier the game was reminiscent of Nimzovich's famous win against Mannheimer, where black's blockading knights on e4 and c4 completely dominate the game. 14. Bxe4 put an end to that, but also could ...
   Aug-13-17 S Kindermann vs Ftacnik, 1981
Delboy: Impressive play by Ftacnik, sensing weaknesses that would have been missed by lesser players. 14. ... c4, 18. ... f5 and 20. ... h5 are strategic blows that are not at all obvious
   Aug-13-17 K Forster vs Kupchik, 1946 (replies)
Delboy: Is it already Monday? Easiest Sunday puzzle I have encountered so far. Several other variants also win, e.g. the already mentioned 26. ... Qxf2 and 28. ... Qxa2
   Aug-12-17 Novotelnov vs D Grechkin, 1949
Delboy: The dangers lurking in positions with opposite coloured bishops, even after most pieces have been exchanged. Only 31. Kh2 draws comfortably, while 31. Kf1 Rf2+ 32. Kg1 Rxb2+ 33. Kh2 Rxa2 probably doesn't
   Aug-10-17 A Rodriguez vs E Bricard, 1998
Delboy: The tempting 12. Bf4 is shown to be second best, especially when the forcing line 13. gxf6 is refuted by the clever 14. ... Be3+. 12. Qe2, guarding h2 and threatening sacrifices on e6 and f7, looks better, e.g. 12. ... Ng4 13. Rxf7 (or perhaps the less clear 13. Bf4 Qb6 14. Qxg4 ...
   Aug-10-17 N Ambrosini vs F Buchs, 1999
Delboy: White chose the wrong moment to play Kb1. Note that 17. Ka1 would have been similarly met with 17. ... Rxa2+ 18. Kxa2 Qa5+ and mate to follow soon
   Aug-02-17 Niephaus vs P Schmidt, 1950
Delboy: Nice puzzle position after black's 20th move. 21. Nd5 is one of those moves that instinctively look like winners, confirmed by the follow-up.
   Aug-01-17 Skembris vs N Legky, 1989
Delboy: Love the ultimately decisive early queen rook maneuver along the third rank (a5, Ra6-g6-h6)
   Jul-30-17 S Smagin vs Vaisser, 1984
Delboy: Some good looking combinations in this so far unnoticed game. The exciting phase starts with a positional exchange sacrifice, that white sought to refute with the knight pseudo-sacrifice 25. Nxd5 (hoping for 25. ... exd5 26. Qxd5+ and 27. Qxd6). Instead white is jolted by the knight ...
