   May-02-06 Unzicker vs Robatsch, 1961 (replies)
 
John Doe: The first move I looked at was Qf8 because it looked strong... of course there's that pesky knight and queen keeping me from mating. At that point I realized rook takes knight got rid of both my problems. Making the position you want come to be seems to be a common theme harped on ...
 
   Dec-10-05 A Bannik vs Tal, 1955 (replies)
 
John Doe: Man, I almost had it but I opted for Rf5, hoping to deliver mate that way... I of course overlooked the knight interposition, closing the rook off the rightmost files. D'oh
 
   Nov-07-05 Murey vs E Mortensen, 1982 (replies)
 
John Doe: <patzer2>, I tried to solve your puzzle earlier, but I had class so I couldn't post my solution.. At the time it seemed very plausible that white can create a mating attack with his two bishops on the diagonal. Possibly with a queen sac. The rook on the rank seems poised to ...
 
   Nov-02-05 M Thaler vs S Sloan, 2003 (replies)
 
John Doe: lol, I didn't know it was possible to lose after fxe! Interesting choice for opening of the day
 
   Oct-30-05 D Lewis vs A Harju, 1867
 
John Doe: wow, nice finish. Black is hopeless, he will soon lose his rook. (Loose pieces drop off!)
 
   Oct-18-05 Kasparov vs Beliavsky, 1983
 
John Doe: I really liked the "desperado" tactic used by Kasparov on the knight trade. Shame the doubling those pawns wasn't enough to win.
 
   Oct-18-05 V Salnikov vs A Bezgodov, 1991
 
John Doe: But wasn't the variation played even easier? It appears to me that the bishop promotion made white less likely to trade.
 
   Oct-18-05 B Perenyi vs L Eperjesi, 1974 (replies)
 
John Doe: I explored Nxe6 first (I don't usually try to sac the queen as my first variation!). The bishop theme became obvious, but it didn't work with that particular idea. So I explored the other knight check. Not only does it attack the queen, giving me a tempo, it also displaces it from ...
 
   Oct-06-05 Anand vs Judit Polgar, 2005 (replies)
 
John Doe: Anand has to watch out a "sac" on the loose pawns... It might bring his Queen line with his king.
 
   Oct-04-05 Judit Polgar vs Topalov, 2005 (replies)
 
John Doe: Kxd3 or Rxd3 would suffice as white's pawn is still two pushes away from queening.
