   Jan-15-19 Wang Hao vs M Kravtsiv, 2008 (replies)
 
King Harvest: I enjoyed <TheaN>'s and <drollere>'s comments. Thank God CG puzzles aren't a formal competition. We have chess itself for that! I too evaluate puzzles according to their worth on a Monday to Sunday scale quite like TheaN's. However each regular solver inevitably ...
 
   Jan-14-19 G O'Toole vs R Haria, 2009 (replies)
 
King Harvest: @<nasher> Yeah, what's the frequency Kenneth!? I've been around this board a long time (under a different handle back in the day). I'm not sure I've ever seen Chris Owen miss a day. We're talking many years of this. And they've ALL been in that Chris Owen style. So ...
 
   Jan-12-19 I Saric vs M Bosiocic, 2018 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Like <schachfuchs> I puzzled out the theme but not the execution. Which makes for an enjoyable and educational fail. I don't think I'm ever going to find Rd7 five moves deep. It's hard enough to find on the move. But the puzzle reminds me of the kind of positional driven ...
 
   Aug-07-18 Taimanov vs Psakhis, 1981 (replies)
 
King Harvest: Well, I can't expect to get them all. I mean I got dressed this morning and I noticed my lev psakis on my right foot.
 
   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. ...
