   Nov-16-17 J L Watson vs W Martz, 1976
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] A surprising finish. 36. Kf3 walks into a discovered check, while after 36. Kf5 Rg4!, the threat of ...Be4 mate wins material for Black.
   Sep-19-17 Sutovsky vs Smirin, 2002
LivBlockade: The game A Kazarian vs E Limanovska, 2017 had a nearly identical finish.

   Jun-13-17 Ngoc Truongson Nguyen vs Kanep, 2010 (replies)
LivBlockade: This line was repeated in Le Thao Nguyen Pham vs A Zatonskih, 2012 when Black tried 15...Qb5, also without success.
   Jun-13-17 Le Thao Nguyen Pham vs A Zatonskih, 2012
LivBlockade: Anna was not the first to fall into this trap. Ngoc Truongson Nguyen vs Kanep, 2010 followed the same line until Black tried 15...Qc4 with a similar result.
   Apr-25-17 Radjabov vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
LivBlockade: Hmmm... I thought the above was a good puzzle, but I suppose few people will click on this game. Short draws between players near the bottom of the standings don't get much attention.
   Apr-05-17 Jennifer R Yu vs A Sharevich, 2017
LivBlockade: Black to move and win - 17 ... ? [DIAGRAM] Position after 17. Kb1 The engines give 17... Rxb2+, with one variation being 17... Rxb2+; 18. Kxb2 Qa3+; 19. Kb1 Ba6; 20. Bf1 Qxc3; 21. Rc1 Qxd2; 22. Qd1 Rb8+. In some other variations, Black is able to play ...Ba3 or ...Rf2 with ...
   Mar-28-17 Karpov vs Adorjan, 1989 (replies)
LivBlockade: Yes, I voted for his version in the Pun Voting Booth just two days ago. I wonder how/why it was changed.
   Mar-20-17 Falkbeer vs NN, 1847 (replies)
LivBlockade: We had "Beer Chaser" a few years ago: Anderssen vs Falkbeer, 1851
   Oct-28-16 J Duda vs I Beradze, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: I submitted the same pun for J Tomczak vs J Duda, 2016 , a nice attack against a king trapped in the center.
