   Nov-30-08 N Legky vs A Summerscale, 1997 (replies)
 
Grampmaster: I was looking at: 24. Rh3 if gxf5 25. Rxh6 Bxe5 26. Rxe5 I liked white's attacking chances in this position but there were too many choices to be confident I was on the right track. Nice puzzle.

Grampmaster: Okay <Anatoly21> After 45...Re8 46.Rd8+ Kc7 47.Rxd8 Bxd8 Now what? Looking better for Black isn't it?
 
   Jul-16-08 W Watson vs P Thipsay, 1985 (replies)
 
Grampmaster: Why 16...b5. Why not 16...Qh3 immediately? If 17.Nf6+ gxf6 and only 18.Qxf4 exf4 stops the immediate mate by Black, who is now left with a Queen advantage versus two White bishops after one of the bishops captures the remaining hanging Black knight. What am I missing with this ...
 
   Jul-14-08 M Burrows vs T Clarke, 2004
 
Grampmaster: Black unleashes a devastating attack with 24...c5! even though until then it seemed White had control of the center. Chessgames...it looks like a good puzzle candidate.
 
   Mar-03-08 J Dobias vs J Kuzelka, 1924
 
Grampmaster: Nice finish! 34....Qxd3! 35.Qxf2 Qd1+ forcing 36.Qg1 hxg2+ forcing 37.Kxg2 Rg8+ and the White Queen is doomed and mate follows.

Grampmaster: <Magic Castle> You are right on! Who cares that someone solved the puzzle in 5 micro seconds? Wish all those posts could be banned. Good analysis is what makes this site great.
 
   Feb-06-08 Martinovsky vs T Taylor, 1976
 
Grampmaster: 29....Rxd2 might make a good Thursday puzzle. If White responds with 30.Rxa6 it is a very quick mate so have to find the best defense and 30.Re1 only delays the result.

Grampmaster: <bakit: Grampmaster and NateDawg...how do you counter 16.Qf5 hxg5 17.hxg5 Be4 18.Qh3 Nh7 would give black the defense?> I'd play 19.f3 Bf5 20.g4 then Bxg4 loses to 21.Qxh7# or if 20...Bg6 then 21.Rxg6 followed by 22.Qxh7# Interesting position wasn't it?
 
   Nov-09-07 A Bannik vs Bronstein, 1958 (replies)
 
Grampmaster: I didn't see the simple positioning move of 60...Qf2. Without 15 minutes over the board I would have played 60....Ng5+, hoping for the checkmate variation. Nice puzzle. Bronstein was a great player.
 
   Sep-27-07 Ed. Lasker vs B F Winkelman, 1926 (replies)
 
Grampmaster: I played 16. Bxf6 instead of Bxh7. Maybe someone with a search engine can prove that 16. Bxf6 doesn't win for white. In playing it over in my head that was the line I was calculating.
