   May-18-18 K Rathnakaran vs K Arjun, 2017
FlashinthePan: <landshark> That's right, thanks, I missed it.
   Apr-08-18 P Motwani vs P Roca, 1986 (replies)
FlashinthePan: <patzer2> If 37...Qxd5 instead of Qc4+ as in your analysis, 38.Qxd5 Rd8 and, after 39.Qe5+ Kg8, 40.Qe6+ Kg7, White apparently can't win, or am I missing something?
   Dec-26-17 Damljanovic vs Geller, 1987
FlashinthePan: The final combination was obvious. Much harder to see OTB was that exchanging the queen for the two rooks would force the win for Black.
   Dec-01-17 O Bernstein vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
FlashinthePan: After 47. Ra8, Black apparently didn't see the threat, as he could still escape with 47...f6 (or am I missing something?).
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
FlashinthePan: Definitely hard for a Tuesday. Took me a lot of time cause I was looking for a more obvious move, which can be spotted at a glance. Had it been a Thursday (which I think is this puzzle's real level), I'm sure I'd have solved it more easily.
   May-07-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
FlashinthePan: <keypusher> I see, thanks!
   Apr-17-17 Anastasian vs A Duman, 2003 (replies)
FlashinthePan: Aydin couldn't escape, but he had Ashot at it.
   Apr-09-17 Akobian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
FlashinthePan: How can 76... f6 possibly be played at that level? Was Caruana in zeitnot?
   Mar-29-17 W So vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
FlashinthePan: 29. ... Qg8 (forced), then 30. Bxf6 drives the nail in the coffin.
   Mar-22-16 Kmoch vs Prins, 1940 (replies)
FlashinthePan: There is no way this is an easy puzzle if one is supposed to have seen all the variations leading to mate to have solved it.
