LAK: 16.Bxh6 sticks out. We understand instinctively that taking the Bishop exposes Black to an attack. A little calculation corroborates our intuition. But Black doesn't have to take that Bishop. How does White proceed after 16....Qf6?

LAK: I think that one has to see all the way to mate on this one. In particular, what should be Black's reaction to 30. Ne3, because here, the intended 30. ... Qg5+ doesn't work quite nicely. So, we have 28... RxBg3 29.KxRg3 Bg1 30. Ne3, and now: 31. ... Ne2+ 32. QxNe2 Qf4+ 33. Kh3 Qh2#, and

LAK: Good puzzle today! I spent most of my time trying to make 24. Qg4+ work, because I misevaluated 25. Qh5. I even found some very nice lines under 24. Qg4+. Unfortunately, I did't even consider a candidate move (... Qb1+) by Black in the variation 25... Qxb2 26. Rg3 Qb1+ 27. Kh2 Qf5. ...

LAK: Stockfish on the 18. Ba5+ Bb6 19. Bxb5 plan: 18. Ba5+ Bb6 19. Bxb5 Bxb5 20. Qxb5 Bxa5 21. Qxa5+ Kb8 22. Rd3 Ka8 23. e6 Rc8 24. Rd7 Qc5 25. Qxc5 Rxc5 26. e7 Rcc8 27. Nd4 Kb8 28. f5 Nf4 29. Re3 Nxg2 30. Rb3+ Ka8 31. Rbb7 + (4.01--) Depth: 33/55 0:01:15 456 MN By the way, in this ...

LAK: I didn't think this was insane. The storming of the Black King's fort was an obvious first candidate move. A very quick and elementary analysis showed that a) Black must defend by placing his Queen in front of his King on the h-file, and b) subsequently, Black cannot trade his Queen for
 
   Feb-22-14 Rubinstein vs Hromadka, 1923 (replies)
 
LAK: Beautiful combination! It's immediately obvious that White will have to do something with his Queen, otherwise the Black Knight will take it next move. Also, although White has a better position than Black, it would be a pity if he lost his Bishop pair. That gets us to think of doing ...
 
   Feb-16-14 Y Shulman vs D Marciano, 1997 (replies)
 
LAK: Beautiful attack! I saw that if the Black Bishop on e6 was diverted from the h3-c8 diagonal then Qf5 is mate. So, how to remove that Bishop? I only considered d5. Although that produces some nice combinations if Black takes the pawn or moves the Bishop to d7 or c8, or even play Qc5+, ...

LAK: I saw Rxf7 Be3, Rf2+ Ke7, but only considered Qh4+. I also visualized that at some point Qh4-e4 might be played, going after the lonesome Rook. Unfortunately I stopped there, because that's merely a draw: the Black King retreats back to e8. Would I see Qf3 after the move repetition?
 
   Feb-10-14 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2013 (replies)
 
LAK: Sigh! Instead of 84. e6, as I stated above, 84. f6 with, at some point, Kf5 creates mate threats against the Black King from a subsequent Rh8+. This gives sufficient time for White to decisively promote his e-pawn.

LAK: Wednesday puzzle after 19 ... Bd7?
