   Mar-17-17 Stefansson vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
JTV: Beautiful Execution By GM Magnus Carlson! After 25...Rd4, the bishop is poison for the queen...
   Mar-11-17 N Mohota vs S Swaminathan, 2011 (replies)
JTV: I think Blacks best move. in order to prolong the agony, would have been 15...cxb5. I have never seen anyone blocking the e pawn from development, in this case 9...Qe6, and win the game...
   Mar-03-17 I Cheparinov vs Navara, 2007 (replies)
JTV: I think the queen sacrifice was a great move, but black blundered with 29...Rxg2. Needed to play 29...Rxd2 instead, forcing white to play 30.Re1 to stop the Knight from wreacking havoc...
   May-31-16 B Hammar vs E Jonsson, 2014 (replies)
JTV: I stared at this enigma for the longest time wondering what move to make for black. I was at a complete loss as to what advantage black had. So I went to the game and was even more surprised to see 28...Rf1+ 29. Qxf1 Ng3+ 30. Kh2 31. Nxf1 Rxf1 32. Qb8+? and white resigns? ??? I found ...

   Oct-29-14 Lindehn vs Maczuski, 1863 (replies)
JTV: The losing move for black was 7...Nxe4. Gee, here's a couple of bishops staring at an un-castled position and instead of castling into safety, black decides to whack the e4 pawn. Of course white played it smart and castled the next move but what does black do? He keeps attacking with ...
   Oct-29-14 T Schmehl vs A Simonov, 2004 (replies)
JTV: At first glance of the situation, after 14. Ndxc4, Black only has one defender on the h7 pawn. What is that knight doing on c4 when he should be defending his post against white's white squared bishop? This is a major weakness in black's camp and 15. Bxh7+ exploits this weakness. The ...

JTV: The least you could have done was back the game up by a few moves then say "White to Move." It wasn't even a puzzle because I looked at it and saw the instant checkmate in two moves. [DIAGRAM] White to move
   Oct-27-14 NN vs V Grimm, 1864 (replies)
JTV: Wow,a prime example of smother mate. After move, 8...exd4, white needed to play 9. h3 before taking back in the center. After 9. cxd4 Nxd4. Whites only move was to recapture the knight by 10. Nxd4. but after 10...Qh4 white would have been better to have played 11. Be3. 11. Nf3 spells ...
   Oct-26-14 Shabalov vs Aronian, 2004 (replies)
JTV: I had the first move of the puzzle correct, 21...Bxf3. The Knight on g5 can't take because black can peal open the king side by sacrificing his dark squared bishop in 22...Bxg3! So what's white to do on the 22nd move? He could have played 22. Rf1 or Qd2 or Bc2. I went to the game and to
