Eduardo Leon: Black's knight is like a sexual minority: it's looking for a safe space.
   Aug-02-17 Wei Yi vs Ding Liren, 2015
Eduardo Leon: What makes this pun even more awesome is that pinyin uses “d” to denote the sound /t/. So it's really pronounced “waiting”. (Ok, no, the tones don't help. “Wéi-Dīng” sounds more like “way-TING”.)

Eduardo Leon: <Jambow: His pieces and pawns always get advanced positions in his opponent's camp. He is always fighting in your house, not his.> Indeed: Aronian vs Anand, 2007
   May-30-17 P Makoli vs F Doettling, 2007 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: Black can win the exchange with 35...♖h1+ 36.♔xg2 ♖xc1. The “tiny” problem is that white draws regardless: 37.♕xf6+ ♕g7 38.♕d8+. But, of course, if black first plays the intermediate 36...♕a8+ 37.♕f3 ♕xf3+ 38.♕xf3 ...

Eduardo Leon: Guys, if you didn't find 26.♘xb5, you didn't find the solution. The point isn't winning the b5 pawn. The point is that, after 26.♘xb5 ♖d8 27.♘d6, black loses either the d5 pawn (which is passed) or the g5 pawn (which could have been annoying in lines ...

Eduardo Leon: For a rather long while I thought the puzzle was how white could get himself out of this mess.
   Mar-02-17 Caruana vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: Another beautiful “hanging ♖e7” sac: Karpov vs Sax, 1983 , also before move 40.
   Jan-27-17 N Steinberg vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: This was a truly beautiful attack. Too bad white didn't win.
   Jan-25-17 B Barth Sahl vs Yu Yangyi, 2017
Eduardo Leon: <Nerwal> White wanted a decisive result at all costs. :-p
   Jan-23-17 K Pan vs I Mjatezs, 2016 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: <Sally Simpson> For some fun: 27.♖d4 ♕e5 28.♖h4 (sorry, gotta checkmate, have no time to capture you!) 28...♕xe1+ 29.♔h2 ♕e5+ 30.g3. That's how bad black's position is.
