   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
   Jul-24-17 Vasiukov vs A Zaitsev, 1968
King Harvest: According to Stockfish black was fine all the way and indeed was better until 14.Nb4?? -- a pure dead blunder into Mate-in-2. The black move the computer has been quietly screaming for, for several moves, was Qc8... 14....Qc8 and Stockfish gives black a half-pawn edge.

King Harvest: Such a nice teaching position it taught me! There's a second way mate! Lol@self
   Jul-20-17 Nakamura vs R Bellin, 2016 (replies)
King Harvest: Garden variety combo there. Pawn grabbing against <Nakamura>...what could go wrong?
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
King Harvest: 0-0-0. Queenside castling always feels a bit louche doesn't it? Like wearing an ascot or leather pants.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
King Harvest: What the hell kind of Monday was this!? I solved, eventually, but only because I sat there saying, "I am not giving up on a monday..."
