   Sep-21-19 Tartakower vs R Broadbent, 1946 (replies)
GlennOliver: Inspired attack AND defence, a lesser player than Tartakower might well not have seen this continuation through to the victory.
   Jul-28-19 Schlechter vs Swiderski, 1903 (replies)
GlennOliver: This is a win for Black, but it is by no means trivial to complete that win. Without precise play by Black, White has a number of opportunities to grasp the draw.
   Apr-18-19 Ljubojevic vs A Planinc, 1971
GlennOliver: The degree of innovation is almost suggestive of a composition rather than the over-the-board game which it actually was. Kudos to Planinc for such a brilliancy.
   Apr-17-19 T Malhotra vs T C O'Neill, 2009 (replies)
GlennOliver: 31. Ra7 loses the tempo and the game to 31. ... Rxg3+
   Apr-16-19 Staunton vs Anderssen, 1851 (replies)
GlennOliver: If 29. ... Kh8 rather than the text 29. ... Kf7, White has an advantage but the win over the board would not have been trivial.
   Apr-05-19 Glucksberg vs Najdorf, 1929 (replies)
GlennOliver: The initial Ng6 is readily recognised as a viable move, but the full continuation requires Najdorf's genius.
   Mar-25-19 A Esipenko vs Volodar Murzin, 2019
GlennOliver: Young Andrey Esipenko is a very innovative player, with potential to compete at the highest level.
   Mar-25-19 T Baron vs K Piorun, 2019 (replies)
GlennOliver: The game gives the impression that White was quickly outside his theoretical repertoire and never really gained a first foothold. After the most obvious continuation, 24. Qc5+, White gains the Knight in the exchange but is still a major piece down.
   Mar-22-19 Motylev vs A Iljushin, 2000 (replies)
GlennOliver: OK, that puzzle was entirely too deep for my limited skills. I wonder how much of the continuation Motylev saw in advance and how much of the initial gambit was purely based on his attacking instinct. Fine play either way.
   Mar-03-19 V Ciocaltea vs C Radovici, 1968 (replies)
GlennOliver: One of the most complex endgames I've ever seen. Even as shown above, at the point of resignation, the remaining moves which would force the win are not obvious, e.g. 28. Bxa7 Bxf3 29. exf3 N5f4 30. Qd5+ cxd5 31. Rxe5 Qg1#
