   Oct-13-18 Winants vs Carlsen, 2003 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I think the puzzle should have started at move 23. Also, 24. ... e5 looks to be a response to the threat of 25. c6 bxc6 26. ♕xc6+, as now the ♕ covers the c6 square.
 
   Aug-13-18 Topalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: Has Monday become the new Friday? Because this doesn't feel like a Monday puzzle at all.
 
   Jul-30-18 Bogoljubov vs O Sarapu, 1949 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: The ♘ did have a way out: 35. ♖xe6 ♗xe6 before 36. ♘g4, instead of the text move, and it looks to be a drawn endgame.
 
   Jul-28-18 Kotov vs Bronstein, 1972 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: 29. ♖h3 straight away looks more straightforward. Just look at that Bishop f5 in the middle of the crossfire. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Jul-24-18 Bronstein vs Keene, 1975
 
Honey Blend: I couldn't imagine a human player would dare go for 25. ... ♕xd5!, but SF somehow picked it to avoid all the mating tricks: 25. ... ♕xd5 26. ♗e6+ ♕xe6 27. ♖xe6 ♖d3 (I am not 100% sure about ♖d3 but I feel this is to prevent ♕d4) ...
 
   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: For a couple of minutes I was trying to make 26. ♖d6 work: 26. ♖d6 ♘xd6 27. ♘f6 ♖g7 28. ♖h3 with an Arabian mate in the loom. [DIAGRAM] But then again I forget that it's not a Wednesday/Thursday puzzle.
 
   Apr-12-18 G Goldberg vs Bronstein, 1961
 
Honey Blend: <Gouvaneur> You are right in that sense, but what one would do in such a situation largely depends on one's play style I'd say. It's just that personally I prefer to not beat around the bush and thrust the spear when my opponent's belly is wide open so I can get on with ...
 
   Apr-06-18 E Inarkiev vs D Temirkanov, 2012 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: Just wondering if ignoring the back rank threat is worth it, e.g. 26. gxf7 ♕a1+ 27. ♔d2 ♖f8 etc. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Mar-27-18 Kramnik vs NN, 1999 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: If 14. ... ♗e7 15. ♖xe7 ♔f8, White has the lovely finish 16. ♘e6+! fxe6 17. ♕xd6: [DIAGRAM] Followed by 17. ... ♘xf6 18. ♖d7+ etc
 
   Mar-22-18 Szabo vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I recall from one of Reuben Fine's books that I read before where he emphasized the importance of 8. ♘c3 in this variation of QGA, e.g. 8. ♘c3 b5 8. ♗b3 c4 9. ♗b2 ♘b4 10. ♗b1 and White keeps the Bishop pair: [DIAGRAM] Or 8. ... cxd4 9. exd4 ...
