   Dec-11-18 Miles vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I love the idea of 34. ... f3!. What might even be harder to spot is 35. gxf3 ♕f5!! and White looks lost. [DIAGRAM] Now the e pawn is attacked twice, the h pawn is hanging, and at the same time 36. ♕xa2 doesn't help because of the fork 36. ... ♖xd1+ 37. ...
 
   Dec-01-18 E Prie vs Granda Zuniga, 2017 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I was thinking of 26. ... e5 , followed by ... ♘c7 and ...♘e6 to try to hit the c-pawn and get some activity for the ♕ but seems to be too slow compared to the text. Also, why not 27. ... ♖b2 immediately?
 
   Nov-12-18 Van Wely vs Degraeve, 2017 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: <al wazir: The game ends with an amateurish blunder, but there were lots of mistakes before that. 46...Nxe5 loses a piece, but then white gave back the exchange, so the transaction left white with ♘ + ♗ vs. black's ♖ + ♙.)> I am not so sure whether ...
 
   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 ...
