   Jun-09-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
 
King Harvest: When I sac the Queen in positions like this, where I can't calculate my way to a clear win, well, usually a few moves later I wish I could Averbakh.
 
   Jun-07-18 Topalov vs S Zhigalko, 2008 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Solved this one because A) it was a puzzle and B) the only faintly reasonable sac I could find was the key move Rxd5... but Zhigalko was already in one of those positionally lost positions that must have been sheer misery to sit behind. None of his pieces has the least scope.
 
   Jun-06-18 B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Wijk aan Zee da moves -- Home come Andreikin not see the moves?
 
   Jun-05-18 D Perez vs J Jackova, 2008 (replies)
 
King Harvest: <<ChessHigherCat<Too bad there aren't any games in the database where Jakova beats Nunn, or the pun could be: <Jakova trades, master of Nunn>> Yes, indeed, too true... well... I just think it's surprising Jackova won, she wasn't expecting to... before the ...
 
   Jun-04-18 N Lopes vs U O'Boyle, 2008 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Puzzle was easy... but mostly I wonder if Nelma's siblings have any children because then she'd be Auntie Lopes. Hey, it's a Monday level pun too.
 
   Oct-20-17 R Wojtaszek vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
 
King Harvest: The correct idea jumped out at me as the first thing to investigate, but I couldn't find Nb6 because I vapor locked at: "black always has a simple answer to any discovery when I move the knight. He simply initiates the exchange of Q's with check and I've got nothing." Grrr. ...
 
   Sep-19-17 A Montalvo vs Blatny, 1997 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Fact checking some alternate lines I thought I saw (incorrectly) led me to use The Machine, which pointed out, drearily, that while the combination is sound (it leads to advantage for black against best play) it isn't winning against best play... white's 26.Qxb5+? was a ...
 
   Sep-11-17 Yu Yangyi vs Svidler, 2014 (replies)
 
King Harvest: <<An Englishman:> Good Evening: The best part of the game comes before the combination. 22.Bxh7+ starts a rather unusual and interesting attack.>> Agreed! -- good on Yu for pointing it out ;)
 
   Aug-08-17 Mamedyarov vs Lu Shanglei, 2016 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Sweet mate. Black's 15...b6?! was a self-inflicted wound. By 18...Bxd4?! the wheels are coming off. Mamedyarov makes the finish beginning 19.Qa4! look easy.
 
   Jul-31-17 Fischer vs Berliner, 1962 (replies)
 
King Harvest: <Berliner was not really a World Champion. He was "World Champion of Correspondence Chess" which is roughly as commendable as being voted Assistant Dog Catcher of Otoe County, Nebraska. ...> Um, uh... yeah, here's some Assistant Dog Catcher Chess: Estrin vs Berliner, 1965
