   Dec-15-18 K Schiffer vs Ruben Rodriguez, 1975
Delboy: Given the opportunity, black was not going to miss out on the irresistible 20. ... Bxf2+. The most fun line was 22. Kf3 e4+ 23. Nxe4 (surely white is not going to survive 23. Kxe4 Nce5, threatening f5 followed by Qa7#, while after 23. Qxe4 white must give up the queen following 23. ...
   Dec-12-18 M Maia vs S Masango, 2014
Delboy: 24. ... d3 is an instructive move, cutting the queen from its defence of f3 and at the same time enabling Rc2. White is strangely helpless after 27. ... Qh5, as 28. Bg3 (or 28. Bg1) fails to 28. ... Rc2
   Dec-10-18 Karasev vs N N Monin, 1978
Delboy: Black plays a positional knight sacrifice, figuring that his dangerous bishops and entangled white pieces constitute sufficient compensation. I wonder how 24. ... Bc7 (instead of 24. ... Qxg4), seeking to maintain white's paralysis, would have played itself out
   Dec-10-18 Benko vs L Tipary, 1954
Delboy: Nice finale with 48. Qxf7, though black was already lost long before that
   Nov-30-18 K Plater vs Z Boleslawski, 1956
Delboy: I presume Boleslawski lost on time here, after sacrificing on move 17 to draw the white king to the dangerously exposed h4-square. Did he miss any spectacular winning sequences?
   Nov-23-18 R Gerber vs Goldin, 1999 (replies)
Delboy: Is there anyone brave enough to analyse this insane triple piece sacrifice? Once white plays 38. Re7 the win is forced (though still requiring the foresight to spot 41. Rxg7+!), but what of the many alternatives before that? If 26. Nxe5 is sound then this is a Sunday puzzle
   Nov-20-18 J Krijgelmans vs Rudolf Triller, 1975
Delboy: Lots of little tricks in this fun sequence beginning with 34. Qxd8+
   Nov-08-18 Foltys vs E Gerstenfeld, 1938
Delboy: The seemingly attacking, but actually quite awkward positions of white's three major pieces allow black an interesting combination. 36. ... f6! cannot be met by 37. Rd7 or by retreating the queen (e.g. 37. Qd2) because of 37. ... g5+ 38. Kh5 Qe8+ with mate following on g6. The game ...
   Nov-05-18 Cherepkov vs Averbakh, 1960 (replies)
Delboy: The final move would make an attractive Monday puzzle
   Nov-03-18 Smagin vs K Lerner, 1982 (replies)
Delboy: This is a fascinating encounter that deserves much more attention. There is a deep double sacrifice 24. ... Ng4+ and 25. ... Rxe2+, though black probably knew he had a minimum of a perpetual check. Could white have saved the game? Did black miss a stronger move before the sacrifice, ...
